British Royal Family News find that Prince William and Kate Middleton certainly aren’t winning themselves any new fans these days, or at least not in Scotland.
There’s a new report that suggests the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s highly criticized ‘pandemic train tour’ might very well strengthen the case for Scottish independence. Here’s what you need to know.
A new report by the Daily Beast suggests William and Kate left a trail of royal criticism behind them after their Scottish tour stop. While the Duke and Duchess were hoping to show their thanks to frontline workers during the pandemic, many are saying ‘no thank you’ in return.
British Royal Family News: Prince William And Kate Middleton Left A Trail Of Royal Criticism After Scotland Tour Stop
The Daily Beast’s Tom Sykes suggest there was a lot of political controversy around William and Kate’s tour, and most particularly in Scotland.
He puts it this way, “Even if it didn’t actually spread COVID-19, these critics said, it certainly militated against the clear and cautious COVID messaging that has characterized Scotland’s response to the pandemic. The accusations entered the mainstream with even newspapers such as The Scotsman, which backed a no vote in the referendum, describing the trip as an opportunity to vent the familiar grievances of one rule for them and another for the rest of us and saying the trip showed the royals had not yet grasped the public mood, at least in Scotland.”
If that weren’t enough, critics also say that the Cambridges’ train tour has done nothing more than strengthen the movement against the royal family and has even given more of a reason for independence-minded republicans to want to cut Scotland’s cord with the UK.
Of course, it didn’t take long for fans and critics to weigh in on the matter with many of them commenting with, “I think most people are indifferent to the tour either way, but the majority of people who are aware of it think it was a mistake. So I find it so funny that there are fans spinning it into a super positive when it very likely did help the Scottish independence movement, especially if a referendum comes soonish,” along with, “The Queen must see the writing on the wall. I think the monarchy is headed to the dustbin after she dies.”
