Queen Elizabeth just designated Kate Middleton and Prince William to another royal task amidst the royal couple's few planned trips for the next several weeks. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are headed for France, Poland, and Germany and people can't help but think if the Queen is suing them as her unofficial ambassadors for Brexit.
Reports were escalating that Kate Middleton and Prince William will be heading to Paris for a two-day trip perhaps later this month. After that, it has been claimed too that the couple has another trip to Poland and Germany in July at the request of the Foreign and Common Wealth Office as per Telegraph.
As reported by one publication, after Queen Elizabeth, Kate Middleton and Prince William are considered as the last in soft diplomacy. Because of this, some royal critics suggested that they are very much considered as the unofficial ambassadors for the Brexit.
With this report, some wondered if the Queen is using Kate Middleton and Prince William to charm and get the interest of the leaders in the European nations. However, there is a bog catch in this report if the Queen and William are to be considered. It can be recalled that Queen Elizabeth supported Brexit since she has the goal to hold together all the nations in the British Commonwealth. On the other hand, Prince William was totally against the Brexit which is a definitely opposite from the report.
But that issue did not hinder Queen Elizabeth from sending Kate Middleton and Prince William on a trip to The Hague and Rotterdam last October. In their visit, they were expected to smile, wave and interact with the diplomats in order to maintain their soft diplomacy and to sustain their ties with the European nations as reported by Daily Mail.
Nevertheless, some royal critics still think that sending Kate Middleton as an ambassador to the European nations is a big mistake of the Queen since this will not really be a big help for her. Many people see the Duchess of Cambridge as a celebrity rather than a representative of the royal family.
Kate Middleton and Prince William's trips to the European nations to wave, smile, and greet will help the monarchy gain headlines but not more than that or for Queen Elizabeth's benefit. The royal couple openly let the public know that they would rather stay home for Prince George and Princess Charlotte rather dealing with many overseas trips and royal engagements.
