Kate and William's vacation upsets: It's time to give up this royal advantage
Steph Deschamps / August 3, 2022
Are Kate Middleton and Prince William taking too many vacations? According to the British press, the couple tends to take a little too much fun.
William and Kate have a vacation problem, says royal expert Daniela Elser. If Prince William occupied a large media space last weekend by distributing hugs after the victory of the Lionesses at Euro 2022, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge would, in general, rather be inclined to shine by their absence.
They can't have nearly 100 days of vacation a year and still try to sell themselves as a very present duke and duchess, says the expert. According to her, it's time for the Cambridges to give up this royal advantage.
A few days ago, the British media Express.co.uk pointed out that Princess Anne, 71, took part in many official engagements. What to shame Kate Middleton and Prince William, it was said. Prince Charles would also do better than them in this field.
Because if the members of the royal family have, in theory, many days off, few are those who take them all. The problem here is that it is not because Kate and William can take months of leave in the year, that they must do so, points out Daniela Elseren.
