The Duchess of Cambridge has recently reduced her time in public life due to morning sickness associated with her third child.
However a new report suggests that a rift has emerged between Prince William and his grandmother over Kate’s request to minimise her duties to focus on their growing family.
The insider said: “Kate’s miserable about doing royal engagements.
“She’s happiest being a mother and wife and has requested to do less in the public eye.”
Kate has reportedly request to minimise her duties to focus on her and Prince William’s family.
They also told Life and Style magazine: “The 91-year-old monarch was livid that the future Queen of England would want to lessen her duties.
“Prince William told her Kate wants her public appearances kept to a minimum and he’s 100 percent behind her.
“The conversation was quite icy.”
The source further claimed that this confrontation got the Queen “frustrated” as she holds a “no-nonsense” attitude “when it comes to her royal duties and those of her family”. Prince William’s grandmother allegedly stated that she “expects Kate to step up”.
But another royal insider has come forward saying this is “not true”.
Speaking to the website Gossip Cop, which has debunked these rumours as “bogus”, the insider rubbished claims that Prince William and the Queen had a “major fight” over the issue.
Life and Style magazine had previously faced criticism after it reported that the Duchess of Cambridge had found herself in a “royal family war” last year and claimed the pair had already been named King and Queen of England.
Kate Middleton’s third child will join Prince George and Princess Charlotte of Cambridge as royal heirs – the Duchess is expected to give birth in April 2018.
