A recent report suggests that the couple may be close to reaching the final straw of their relationship, as the 34-year-old prince was spotted flirting with an Australian model.
According to listings in the Court Circular, this year Prince William has performed just 13 royal duties compared to 24 by his 90-year-old grandmother, The Queen, who was sick for most of January.
William faced a media backlash for missing a major Commonwealth event to go on a “lads-only” skiing holiday to Verbier.
One skier told The Sun that Middleton wouldn’t be pleased if she saw the way the royal interacted with the girls: “If I were Kate, I wouldn’t be very pleased to see my husband living it up with two stunning girls”.
Numerous stories led with the claim that William had undertaken 13 days of royal duties in 2017, far fewer than the 24 performed by the queen and four less even than his brother, Prince Harry.
It’s not often we see members of the royal family really letting their hair down.
The Paris visit is another sign that the princes and their father, heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles, are increasingly taking over official duties from the queen, who will turn 91 on June 10. A Commonwealth source said that it betrayed a lack of judgment. “I decided I had to film it with my phone or no one would ever believe me”, he explains. This year, in contrast, William opted to hit the slopes solo with a group of male friends who included Guy Pelly, James Meade, and Tom Van Straubenzee.
He returned to his job at the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) this afternoon, where he will work until the summer. “She said he was a lovely and a down to earth person”.
Morgan spoke of the importance of the Commonwealth event, an event that Prince Andrew attended, even though William’s uncle spent his own weekend in Verbier.
