Prince William and his fiance Kate Middleton are still keeping the royal granny “Queen Elizabeth II” in the dark, according to the Daily Mail.
Queen Elizabeth is used to running the show in England and especially when it comes to her family and weddings–remember Prince Charles’ 1981 wedding, with all the trimmings?
Princess Diana wasn’t the first to hear she was getting married and the day it would happen: all of Buckingham Palace practically knew first, according to the recent disclosures by the Daily Mail.
Prince William isn’t taking the chance that the same thing will happen to him, as he proposed to his fiance Kate Middleton in Kenya on October 20th with no one the wiser. On the weekend of October 30th he asked her father Micheal Middleton for her hand in marriage.
Kate Middleton and her future groom phoned the Queen to share their wedding news just hours before they planned to share it with the rest of the world, the Daily Mail reported!
Queen Elizabeth allegedly was ecstatic about the announcement, according to the the Daily Mail, but she is less than happy about the fact that Prince William will not now turn over the reins for the wedding plans to her and her staff.
Prince William is just like his mother Princess Diana: he might have weathered years of letting Buckingham and the “Queen” dictate to him, but that time is over.
According to the Daily Mail, England’s future king has three special helpers to ensure all will go according to his plans when he marries Kate Middleton on–what many are speculating will be the wedding date of April 28th, a Thursday, further breaking with palace protocol.
Royals typically marry on a Wednesday or a Saturday. But that isn’t the only thing Prince William is breaking with protocol about either. In addition to not telling the government–or getting the Queen’s permission first before asking Kate for her hand in marriage–William is refusing to allow the Queen’s staff to plan all the details.
The Queen of England is not amused, as you may have guessed, since Prince William does not have the experience to plan such a major occassion, nor the age to contemplate the many intricacies involved in such a momentous day or event.
Prince William is to be commended for attempting to plan his own wedding with his bride Kate Middleton, but Prince William isn’t your typical everyday person and should maybe consider allowing the Queen and her staff to do what they do best: plan and run things like this.
Kate Middleton and her groom-to-be have already handled and controlled the most important aspects of their wedding: the marriage proposal and announcement. Maybe it is time for granny “The Queen” to handle the rest, eh Prince William?
