Is Queen Elizabeth urging Prince William and Kate Middleton to chop again on their spending? In response to one report, the monarch is placing the Cambridges on finances. Right here’s what we all know in regards to the couple’s allegedly penny-pinching.
QUEEN ‘TIGHTENING THE PALACE PURSE STRINGS’?
This week, Life & Model studies Queen Elizabeth desires Kate Middleton and Prince William to chop again on their extreme spending habits. The annual Sovereign Grant report just lately revealed that the couple’s expenditure reached an all-time excessive final yr.
In response to the report, the Agency’s bills elevated by 17 %, and it was largely because of the Cambridges’ expensive journey bills. And after seeing the value tag on the couple’s current tour Caribbean tour, the queen apparently ordered an intervention.
“The queen summoned William and Kate to Windsor Castle for an urgent meeting,” an insider reveals. “She demanded they curb their spending and even asked one of the secretaries to put together a budget spreadsheet, which the queen’s instructed they stick to.”
And because the couple prepares to maneuver into Windsor Citadel, Her Majesty is outwardly capping their shifting bills. “The queen has banned them from hiring an expensive interior designer,” the tipster muses. “She wants to teach them a lesson—that money doesn’t grow on trees!”
QUEEN ELIZABETH PLACES CAMBRIDGES ‘ON A BUDGET.
It’s at all times amusing when tabloids grossly underestimate the complexity of royal lives. It’s nearly humorous to imagine the queen sitting the Cambridges down, handing them a chunk of paper entitled “Family Budget,” and instructing them to find out how to stability a checkbook. In fact, this didn’t occur, and the journal is kidding itself if it actually buys this doubtful insider’s testimony.
We aren’t disputing that William and Middleton’s spending final yr most likely raised some purple flags. The couple’s Caribbean tour was nearly universally seen as a catastrophe that price British taxpayers hundreds of thousands. The couple could have even been reprimanded and instructed to not repeat their errors—that isn’t a radical declaration to make.
However, the Cambridges are basically workers of the Crown. Certainly, they’ve people who deal with their funds and journey plans quite than in some way counting on the queen herself. And we’re sure that any financial changes would be run by a number of individuals, not simply the Cambridges themselves.
Lastly, even when this did require a private sit-down between Middleton, William, and the royal matriarch, we’re sure the main points of such a gathering can be saved non-public. There wouldn’t be any speak of it within the tabloids, and Life & Model absolutely wouldn’t be the one to interrupt the information.
EXTRA CAMBRIDGE RUMORS FROM THE RAG
It’s Life & Model‘s past reporting on the royal couple that really sealed the deal here. The magazine has never been capable of providing accurate insight into the duke and duchess’s lives. Final yr, the outlet claimed Middleton was battling Camila Parker Bowles for the crown because the queen’s well-being faltered.
Then the tabloid alleged Middleton was secretly pregnant with twins. And extra just lately, the publication reported Middleton and William had been preventing over find out how to elevate Prince George. So, no, we aren’t shopping for something Life & Model is promoting in the case of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
