Duke William and Duchess Kate Resume Quiet, Low-key Life in Kensington Palace
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have resumed their low-key life in Kensington Palace and are quietly going about their household duties and the Duchess is supervising the renovations she has requested. In response to the vociferous outcry in regards to their Maldives vacation, Prince William and Duchess Kate are living as quietly as possible. The ducal couple is wary of the public, due to a recent upset where a photographer had photographed Prince George’s nanny and despite Prince William’s strong response, the public has been derisive of the Prince’s recent attempt at setting boundaries.
Prince William has always been treated with respect by the press, but the latest gaffe of going to the Maldives has done horrendous damage to his image as a People’s Prince and Duchess Kate’s down to earth common touch. Kate has changed considerably from her days as a carefree commoner with no real obligation to the public, but she has been suffering a backlash of increasing severity, something that has startled the Duchess, who thought she still retained a common touch with her former peers and never realized the extent of public hostility directed at her.
She’s since retreated to a quieter life and is reportedly working on domestic responsibilities until the decisive tour of Australia and New Zealand. She’s going over her wardrobe with a stylist assigned to her by the Queen and William is combing through his agenda and schedule with a senior equerry who has been assigned to the couple to ensure a smoothly flowing domestic routine. Angela Kelly was reportedly to be assigned to make sure the Duchess had a flawless maquillage, but the palace insiders who refuted the idea of the Queen doing without her personal dress designer denied it.
