Prince William and Kate Middleton threw an over the top 2nd birthday party for Prince George earlier this month at Amner Hall, and droves of friends and family arrived to wish the toddler a happy birthday and celebrate the big day. But, one important person was noticeably absent – Prince William’s own grandmother Queen Elizabeth.
It’s no secret that Queen Elizabeth is not a fan of the Duchess of Cambridge, and ever since Princess Charlotte was born and Kate has been slacking on her royal duties – Queen Elizabeth has disapproved, even more than usual. So, Kate and Will took the Queen’s snub personal, they know it is her way of not supporting Kate Middleton and her family, who were all in attendance at the soiree.
The Queen didn’t even have a good excuse for not showing up to Prince George’s birthday party, to add insult to injury her elderly 94 year old husband Prince Phillip managed to make the two hour drive to Amner Hall for the celebration. An insider dished to Life & Style Magazine, “This would have been the perfect opportunity for the Queen to show her support for Kate. There are clearly some tensions. The Middletons thought that the message they were getting from the Queen was definitely a disapproving one.”
Queen Elizabeth despises Kate’s commoner family, and the Duchess herself isn’t at the top of her list of favorite people these days – no one is really surprised that the Queen ditched the birthday party to prove a point. But, regardless of what her point was – it’s still sad that George couldn’t be with his great grandmother on his birthday because she is embroiled in a petty feud.
