Why Catherine isn’t happy about Prince William’s latest royal trip

  • While the Duchess of Cambridge is still recuperating on maternity leave after giving birth just six weeks ago, Prince William has returned to work following the birth of Prince Louis.

    The Duke of Cambridge has already got on to a busy schedule of royal engagements, and is currently visiting the Isle of Man.

    However, it seems Catherine is actually less than pleased with his most recently royal visit. Prince William is currently on the island for the Isle of Man TT – a motorcycle race.

    And while there, he confessed during a chat with Laurence Skelly, the Isle of Man government’s minister for enterprise, “When I said I was going to the Isle of Man for an official visit she [Catherine] said, ‘Really?'”

    It’s likely that the Duchess is feeling a little miffed about the trip, given her fear for Prince William when he’s around motorbikes. The Duke is well known to have a life-long love for the machines, but the couple have shared in the past how much Catherine dislikes his potentially dangerous habit.

    And it seems there really is cause for concern for Catherine. The Isle of Man’s motosport event is notorious for its difficult and dangerous nature – as two people died in this year’s proceedings.

    Prince William famously revealed that he’d somewhat given up the habit since welcoming Prince George in 2013, for the sake of his children. But since then, Catherine has confessed that he still dabbles in riding sometimes.

    During a 2015 visit to Dundee, she shared, “He’s still riding it. It always fills me with horror when he goes out on it‎! I’m terrified. Hopefully, I’m going to keep George off it.”

    While on the island for his official royal visit, the Duke also visited the Joey Dunlop Foundation, which provides specialist disabled acommodation.

    And there will be no rest for the Prince when he returns home to Kensington Palace. William will this weekend join his wife, brother Prince Harry, and new sister-in-law Meghan Markle for the Queen’s annual birthday celebration, Trooping the Colour.

    The ‘Fab Four’ will be seen on the balcony of Buckingham Palace on Saturday 9th June, for the first time since Meghan and Harry’s wedding.
