Royal Family News: Why Didn’t Kate Middleton Travel to Scotland with Royals to See Queen?
Royal Family news reveals that Kate Middleton did not elect to travel to Balmoral Castle in Scotland with the rest of the royals to see the Queen. Read on and we’ll endeavor to explain why.
Royal Family News: Prince William Travels Alone
Royal Family news reveals that as doctors became increasingly concerned over the Queen’s rapidly deteriorating health, a steady line of cars carrying Royal Family members passed through the gates at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, but someone was missing.
According to PEOPLE Magazine, Prince William made to trip alone to be by his grandmother’s side at her summer retreat. The reason was likely that the Duchess of Cambridge’s young children, Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4, were all getting ready for their first day of school.
Kids Need School
The start of the new term is an important time for the young royals who are enrolled as first-time students at Lambrook School after the family’s recent move from London to Windsor as summer came to an end.
As Royal fans know, the duchess is a hands-on mom and this was likely no exception as she stayed behind at Adelaide Cottage for the youngster’s first day of classes. It’s worth noting, however, that Kate and Queen Elizabeth had spent some quality time together a few weeks ago with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visiting the 96-year-old monarch at Balmoral with their kids in tow.
Meghan Markle Not Likely Welcome in Scotland
According to Insider, BBC correspondent Nicolas Witchell said on a live broadcast that Meghan had “stayed” behind as well and remained at Windsor with Kate. He speculated that she may not have been “terribly warmly welcomed” at Balmoral.
It’s unfortunate that, according to the New York Times, Queen Elizabeth II passed away on Thursday, and Kate didn’t get to say goodbye. It’s equally unfortunate that the Duchess of Sussex will never be able to mend things with her grandmother-in-law.
Long Live the King
Buckingham Palace announced Thursday that the Queen had passed away peacefully in her sleep. Her son, Prince of Wales, who arrived at Balmoral with his wife Camilla Parker Bowles to be by his mother’s side has now become the next King of Britain – King Charles III.
With the Queen’s passing comes a new era and one where King Charles has long expressed the desire to streamline The Firm to reduce the drain on the public pocketbook. Internal discord reportedly continues as royals are continuing to try and deal with the loss of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to their new lives in California.
