During their recent trip to France, Kate Middleton and Prince William certainly made a good impression with their beauty and enthusiasm. However, his visit was met with mixed, even controversial reactions. The details are given by ICI Paris magazine.
The Prince and Princess of Wales visit France for the Rugby World Cup. They must have been disappointed by not being seen together.
Of course, the royal couple have done the bare minimum. A fan met in the stands of the Stade Vélodrome in Marseille expressed his disappointment, declaring: “It’s been six years since he made an official visit to our country, so we are quite disappointed not to be able to see him together”.
Prince William and Kate Middleton were invited as part of the Rugby World Cup, but they were hundreds of kilometers apart. The Princess of Wales was in Marseille to support the England team on Saturday evening, while the father of her children was in Bordeaux to watch the Wales match on Sunday.
Some fans believe the pair could have attended both matches, but a witness at the ICI Paris reported: “Where Kate trembled throughout the match, William remained calm and unruffled”.
Although both their teams won their respective matches (England 27–10 against Argentina and Wales 32–26 against Fiji), it appears that the excitement has been misplaced.
His trip to France was also criticized across the Channel. Some wonder why “Kate and William got ahead of King Charles III”, whose trip to France had been long planned. An expert on the Windsor royal family says: “Wonder why the Prince and Princess of Wales have come to your country when the King is expected there in just ten days. This tasteless way of doing things seems to hide the rivalry between the two couples. Camilla probably won’t like this approach, because it will make it look like Charles is coming after a fight.
A royal visit that doesn’t go unnoticed, to say the least!
