Clarence House has announced today that their Royal Highnesses, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will take on more royal duties to support the Queen in her Diamond Jubilee year. The Duke is expected to resign from his post as an RAF Search and Rescue Pilot.
“William has felt guilty for quite some time,” a friend reveals. “He is aware that he needs to carry more of his grandmother’s workload.”
“We did the math with William and Catherine” a royal aide explains, “and they were shocked when they realized the age difference between themselves and the Queen.”
The Duchess is currently preparing for the permanent move from Anglesey to Kensington Palace. “She will miss visiting her favorite local shoppes” a pal says. “She used to joke that she spent more time there than the employees!”
The couple will mark their first wedding anniversary on 29 April. “William had planned to whisk Catherine away on a romantic holiday. He understands how challenging this first year has been and is incredibly proud of her. He had the trip booked but realized they should postpone in light of the circumstances.”
“William realizes that if anyone deserves a holiday, it is the Queen.”
