Step aside, royal playbook. Prince William and Kate Middleton are going to do things ‘The Cambridge Way’ moving forward. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are looking to modernize the way they go on state trips in the future, mostly because their most recent one turned out to be a disaster. Here’s what you need to know.
Prince William And Kate Middleton Are Going To Do Things ‘The Cambridge Way’
During William and Kate’s trip to Belize, Jamaica and The Bahamas, they were met with protests, discussions about the countries wanting to break free from Queen Elizabeth and the monarchy and of course, Britain’s colonist past. It seems like more people were paying attention to the message that the governments of these countries were sending out to the royals than to Kate Middleton’s wardrobe on this trip. That’s one of the reasons why they are looking to change things around.
In fact, one source close to the matter offered this to the Daily Mail, “ Kate Middleton is expected to embark on shorter trips on her own that focus on subjects that matter to her after growing in confidence following a decade as a working royal. It comes as the Cambridges vowed to rip up the rule book and pursue ‘The Cambridge Way’ after their difficult visit to Belize, Jamaica and the Bahamas.”
British Royal News: William And Kate Are Doing Things Their Way
And while Prince William and Kate Middleton had to deal with the brunt of all the criticism they received from their unsuccessful trip to Belize and the Caribbean, they are hoping to change the way they travel from here on out. The insider added, “It’s a breath of fresh air. They were bruised by attacks that their Caribbean trip harked back to the colonial age. In future they will rip up the rule-book and do things ‘The Cambridge Way’. They’re trying to work out what that will look like. It is not a criticism of how it was done in the past. But times are changing.”
Of course, many royal fans have commented on the matter with, “Hmm…but I thought the role of royal wives was to support their husbands and stay in the background. Didn’t the press and aides say that one of the many reasons they hated Meghan was that she was attention seeking and stealing the spotlight with the work she was doing?” along with, “Ahem, I do believe the Sussexes were doing really well to modernize the monarchy and have it look less colonial, and the Cambridges forced them out. This is the consequence. They fought hard to have the spotlight, and it’s showing how flawed they are.”
