Gone are the days when Queen Elizabeth is able to control every member of the royal family and boy is she pissed off about it! While we have had our attention on the in-fighting between Camilla Parker-Bowles and Kate Middleton it seems that more important battles have been brewing for the last year. While Kate and Elizabeth seem to get along well there is one major issue of conflict between them- Prince William.
According to the Aug. 25th print edition of Life & Style Magazine Queen Elizabeth is used to everyone doing as she demands and having Kate Middelton and William living at Kensington Palace made it fairly easy to try and bully the couple into carrying out her desires. Kate has apparently fought long and hard with the Queen over allowing William to be his own man, one that is smart enough to make the best decisions for himself based on logic rather than dated protocol.
And it seems that Prince William’s decision to side with Kate in the matter of relocation is partially based upon his new part-time job as air ambulance helicopter pilot. The East Anglian Air Ambulance, based out of Cambridge, requires 5 months of training for the prince and is much closer to Anmer Hall than to London.
Kate and William have absolutely hated their time in London and being under the royal thumb hasn’t helped their marriage or daily lives so they have decided to leave. The couple intends to move in to their countryside estate at Anmer Hall in Norfolk this fall and they couldn’t be happier. They have many friends in the area and are looking forward to spending time with them and entertaining lots of children for Prince George to play with. Kate and William view it as a much-needed fresh start- one that the queen fully resents.
Elizabeth is beyond furious that Kate spent so much on renovating the lavish digs at apartment 1A in Kensington Palace just to abandon them a year later. She has reminded the duchess how unhappy taxpayers were with learning the price tag on her mandatory renovations but Kate could care less. She sees this move as necessary in order to keep her young family happy and on track. Do you blame Kate for fleeing to the countryside? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
