Prince William and Kate Middleton are learning from their past mistakes and being cautious about their next steps after their trip to the Caribbean last year.
Hello there! Journal Royal editor Emily Nash recently spoke about the roles William and Kate will play in the future of the monarchy. Express.co.uk
It appeared in last week’s issue of the publication The Right Royal Podcast, he said the Prince and Princess of Wales are “very carefully managed to make sure they never make a mistake”.
“When William becomes king, the world will be a very different place from when his grandmother took the throne. And he definitely made sure of that, and his vision is very modern,” he explained.
“I think it will respond to today’s world and it will. Likewise, Kate looks to the future. I think they really understand the privilege of their position and the responsibility of their role, and they want to do the right thing.”
Nash added: “Everything they do from now on will be very carefully managed to make sure they never go wrong.”
Prince William and Kate Middleton have drawn flak from the British public for a trip to the Caribbean that cost an estimated $274,000.
The couple traveled to Belize, Jamaica and the Bahamas – the three Commonwealth realms – in what was seen as an attempt to show support for the monarchy and convince other countries not to follow Barbados in choosing to become a republic.
They have also been criticized for their PR, including a picture of them greeting children through wire mesh in Trenchtown, Kingston, Jamaica.
In addition, they teased Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip with photos of themselves driving while standing in the back of a Land Rover during a colonial-era visit to Jamaica.
