Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September, Prince William and Kate Middleton have been given new titles of Prince and Princess of Wales. With new roles, there is a great responsibility on the shoulders of the future king and the queen consort. The Wales couple is also expected to play a crucial role in defining the image of the future of the monarchy. In the absence of Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and Prince Andrew, two will be major supporters of King Charles.
However, the royal expert Russell Myers is not happy with Kate Middleton and Prince William’s strategy as senior royal members. He recalled the Prince and Princess of Wales’ tour to the Caribbean island in March last year to highlight their biggest weakness. In their first trip post Covid-19 pandemic to Belize, Jamaica, and the Bahamas, the royal prince and Middleton faced protests and booing from the locals.
The royal expert reveals one thing Prince William and Kate Middleton need to work on
The major reason behind Prince William and Kate Middleton’s criticism in Jamaica was because of the nation’s plans of separating from the Commonwealth. During the tour, the island’s Prime Minister gave a hint to the future king regarding their wish to be independent. Hours after the conversation, Prince William delivered an emphatic speech to criticize the slave trade. Reminiscing about the incident, Russell Myers claimed that the Prince and Princess need to be on the front foot.
“They are going to have to get on the front foot and make sure that is top of the agenda. They always seem to be trying to catch up and didn’t get ahead of it. And it’s a massive issue,” the royal expert said while speaking on the podcast, Pod Save the King.
Russell Myers further lauded King Charles III for always being one step ahead of the Commonwealth. The royal expert revealed that the monarch was aware of 14 realms that did not wish to continue their associations for a long time and the nature of the relationships is going to change.
