Queen Elizabeth has allegedly instructed Kate Middleton to undergo emergency training for her future role as queen consort.
According to New Idea, the Queen’s fondness for the Duchess of Cambridge is making Prince William’s cousins, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie jealous.
The tabloid claimed that Her Majesty invested $1 in the practice coronation ceremony that is being planned for July. The monarch allegedly told her staff that money is not an issue as long as they throw the most lavish coronation ceremony for Prince William and Middleton.
However, since the Duchess of Cambridge is not on good terms with Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, she fears that the royal siblings will boycott her coronation.
“While such a ceremony usually takes over a year of preparations, Queen Elizabeth wants it to be held late [UK] summer this year in Westminster Abbey with a royal procession and a week of celebrations to welcome Queen Kate and King William to the throne and reinstall faith and hope for the future of the monarchy,” the source said.
Meanwhile, Middleton’s alleged feud with Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie has been going on for years. Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson’s daughters are not pleased with how the Queen has been treating their cousin-in-law.
According to unnamed royal experts, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie are disappointed that they have not given as many opportunities and responsibilities by their grandmother. Instead, the monarch is relying more on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge because of their future roles.
“I’m sure Bea and Eugenie are jealous of Kate and would love to be able to perform just a 10th of her royal duties. They would gladly step up and do some royal jobs if they were allowed,” royal expert Phil Dampier said.
A palace insider also tried to add fuel to the fire by saying that Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie hates the fact that Middleton is the popular one. As such, the mom of three can do no wrong in the eyes of Her Majesty.
The royal siblings are also allegedly taking offense over the fact that Middleton is not a real princess unlike them. As such, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie think they should more rights and receive more respect than Middleton.
However, the claims made by the tabloid should be taken with a grain of salt. Middleton is not feuding with Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.
The Queen hasn’t also ordered an emergency training for Middleton. And it’s impossible for a lavish ceremony to take place in July due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Prince William and Middleton cannot also be crowned anytime soon. After all, the order of succession states that Prince Charles would succeed the Queen.
