Prince Charles Cancels Christmas Plans At Birkhall After William, Kate’s Royal Train Tour Was Criticized
Prince Charles has decided to cancel his plans to celebrate Christmas at Birkhall.
According to Daily Mail, Prince Charles didn’t want to cause any more trouble after Prince William and Kate Middleton faced a backlash after their Royal Train tour.
Last week, critics questioned why Prince William and Middleton embarked on unnecessary travel around the United Kingdom amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited England, Scotland, and Wales during their tour.
And some people on social media called them selfish for not setting a good example to royal fans.
Shortly after the backlash, Prince Charles decided that he wouldn’t go to Scotland during the holiday season.
After all, he doesn’t want to cause any more problems.
As such, New Idea believes that Prince Charles and Camilla will celebrate Christmas at Highgrove or at Camilla’s Wiltshire home, the Ray Mill House.
However, it is unclear if the publication’s claims are correct because earlier this month, there were already reports that Prince Charles and Camilla will celebrate Christmas at their Gloucestershire estate.
This suggests that Prince Charles didn’t have any plans to celebrate Christmas there.
Rather, he was supposed to travel to Scotland for the Hogmanay, and this is what he and his wife decided to cancel.
Meanwhile, Prince Charles also made headlines this week after it was revealed that Prince Philip felt guilty after forcing his eldest son to wed Princess Diana.
Before the exes tied the knot, Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth encouraged Prince Charles to settle down because he wasn’t getting any younger.
While speaking with Daily Mail, royal expert Ingrid Seward said that at the beginning of Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s relationship, the latter and Prince Philip got along really well.
In fact, the Duke of Edinburgh was the one that came to the Princess of Wales’ aid shortly after her wedding to Prince Charles.
And during the fall out of their marriage, Prince Philip served as an intermediary between the Prince and Princess of Wales.
According to royal biographer Philip Eade this must be because Prince Philip felt bad for encouraging the couple to tie the knot even though they weren’t right for each other.
Prince Charles and Princess Diana wed in 1981, and they were blessed with two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry.
Eleven years later, the royal family announced that the Prince and Princess of Wales were separating.
In 1996, their divorce was finalized.
