Prince William, Kate Middleton Make First Joint Public Appearance Since ‘Spare’ Release
Kate Middleton and Prince William continue to do their duties and responsibilities as senior working royals and are not seemingly letting Prince Harry’s newly released memoir get in their way.
On Thursday, the Prince and Princess of Wales made their first joint public appearance of the year. It also marked their first together since the release of “Spare,” which contains claims about some members of the British Royal Family, including them.
Entertainment Tonight reported that as the royal couple attended the opening of The Royal Liverpool University Hospital, where they had a windy reception, a reporter shouted a question asking about their reaction to the Duke of Sussex’s memoir.
But, while they did not respond to it, the outlet said it is unclear whether they heard the question due to the blustering winds.
Prince William and Kate Middleton remain silent about the claims Prince Harry made in his memoir titled “Spare," which hit shelves earlier this week. They, alongside the rest of the British Royal Family, have not released any comment nor addressed the reports involving the material.
Despite the silence, though, the Duke of Sussex recently spoke to People about what he hopes his family’s takeaway is from the book. He stated that he does not “want to tell anyone what to think of it,” including members of his family.
The former working royal also told the magazine that “Spare,” including “its truths, are in many ways a continuation of my own mental health journey,” adding that the book is “a raw account of my life - the good, the bad and everything in between.”
Meanwhile, ET shared elsewhere in its report published Thursday that Kate Middleton and Prince William were all smiles during the outing. It also shared that they expressed their gratitude to the workers for their efforts and contributions, especially throughout the winter months.
The outlet later added that the Prince and Princess of Wales are shining a spotlight on the local mental health charity’s support toward young adults in the area. As explained, they have plans to continue their long-standing work on mental health.
For the outing, the future King is said to have worn a navy blue suit and a green sweater in coordination with his wife’s ensemble, who donned a matching navy dress and blue-and-green tartan plaid coat.
Aside from Prince William and Kate Middleton, King Charles III also took on a royal engagement on the same day, according to People.
The magazine noted that the British Monarch visited Aboyne and Mid Deeside Community Shed in Aberdeen, Scotland, adding that he sported a kilt for the outing and chatted with well-wishers at one point in the visit.
