The Queen is reportedly “uncomfortable” with Kate Middleton and Prince William’s recent helicopter use.
Amid backlash over the royal family’s spending, Royal reporter Richard Palmer tells The Express that “they are vulnerable because then you see pictures of the Cambridge family flying up by helicopter. I mean, I think they’ve been curtailed with that a little bit. I think the Queen felt, certainty let it be known, that she felt uncomfortable about the entire family traveling by helicopter. I think there was partly a bit more going on behind the scenes.”
“I think there was a little bit of official unhappiness about the amount of time that the Cambridges were spending traveling between Anmer Hall in Norfolk and Kensington Palace, their London residence, using helicopters,” Richard elaborated. “People in the Cambridges’ camp would say actually that didn’t happen very often at all. Other people seemed to imply that it was happening a bit more than the Queen wanted it to happen.”
Apparently, the Queen also “let it be known that she was worried about the Cambridges traveling as a family by helicopter because of the possibility of a crash” especially since multiple heirs to the throne were traveling together.
The Cambridges are about to move out of their Anmer Hall home and relocate to Windsor, so they’ll be traveling a lot less and presumably won’t be needing to hop into a helicopter all that often anymore. So…problem solved?
