British Royal Family News find that the Welsh government is making it pretty clear that they are none too pleased over the fact that Prince William and Kate Middleton stopped by on their ‘pandemic train tour’ just to break the Covid-19 rules that they have put in place with the hopes that it will help curb the spread of the virus as many parts of the world are getting hit with a second wave.
In fact, Vaughan Gething, who is the Welsh health minister in the nations’ devolved government, says that Prince William and Kate Middleton’s trip to Wales is not an excuse for people to claim they are confused about the rules surrounding the coronavirus. Here’s what you need to know.
British Royal Family News: Wales Is Not Pleased That Prince William And Kate Middleton Visited Just To Break Coronavirus Rules
Gething says that he was “not particularly bothered or interested” in the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s trip, but at the same time says it’s no excuse for the Welsh to pretend that they no longer have to keep their masks on in public.
He told BBC Radio 4 in an interview, “I’d rather that no-one was having unnecessary visits, and people always have divisive views about the monarchy, but their visit isn’t an excuse for people to say that they are confused about what they are being asked to do. I’m not particularly bothered or interested because I don’t think that is going to be an excuse for people to say: ‘I should go and behave in a different way and I should act as if the harm that is being seen in front of us in every part of our healthcare system is not taking place.’”
This comes after Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon also gave the couple a rather frosty welcome when they arrived in Edinburgh earlier this week.
According to The Scotsman, Sturgeon certainly didn’t mince her words when she was asked for some clarity on Prince William and Kate Middleton’s tour and how some people have suggested it is in breach of cross-border travel restrictions which are currently being enforced in Scotland.
Sturgeon replied with, “The royal visit is a matter for the royal household and the arrangements around it, and I think any questions of those arrangements, should be directed to the royal household. The Scottish Government was advised about the intention to visit and we made sure that the royal household were aware, as you would expect, of all of the restrictions in place in Scotland so that that could inform both the decision and the planning of the visit but I think any questions about that should be directed to the royal household.”
