'It looks like Prince William's having an early mid-life crisis'
Lorraine Kelly has spoken out against Prince William, after his skiing holiday earlier this month.
Wills, 34, headed to Verbier, Switzerland with pals including nightclub boss Guy Pell, while his wife Kate Middleton stayed at home with their children George and Charlotte.
We think it’s pretty cool that the couple are so chilled about solo holidays, but William may actually have been a teeny bit naughty with his trip. Eep.
He missed a service to mark Commonwealth Day at Westminster Abbey, which almost every other senior member of the Royal Family attended. These included the Queen, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.
Now Lorraine, 57, has written in her column for The Sun: ‘What the heck is going on with Prince William? It looks like he’s having an early mid-life crisis and desperately trying to relive a youth he missed out on.
‘It is all the more surprising because William has always been the “good boy”, but maybe this is his way of finally rebelling.
‘While younger brother Harry grew up having all the fun, with wine women and song, sober William was at university dating his nice but dull Kate and conforming to every page of the rulebook. Now it would appear that the two brothers have traded places.
‘Harry looks very settled with girlfriend Meghan Markle and has knuckled down to take his royal duties seriously.’
There were concerns that William’s decision to miss such a key event in the royal calendar would lead to criticism that he’s ‘workshy’, especially as both he and Kate, 35, have attended the annual event for the past two years.
Lorraine continues: ‘I actually feel rather sorry for Kate right now. She has dutifully produced two royal babies — and to satisfy the traditionalists even had them in the “right” order, with a prince as heir and princess as “the spare”.
‘She wears clothes that are too old for her, to conform to convention, and smiles sweetly through bum-numbing royal events. I hope she tears a strip off her silly husband for being such an eejit and allowing himself to be laughed at and accused of being workshy.
‘They are just over a year shy of the seven-year itch, when couples can become bored with one another and want to see if the grass is greener elsewhere. I don’t think their marriage is in trouble but William needs to buy a bloody big bunch of roses for his wife and make a grovelling apology.’
Hmm. Firstly, we don’t think Kate is dull AT ALL – and she looks gorgeous whatever she wears.
We’re sure the couple would’ve got the Queen’s blessing to skip this event. Not only that, but they’ve been back at work since.
