Since the start of the pandemic, the royal family has, like everyone else, had to comply with health restrictions. A doubly complicated task for Kate Middleton and Prince William since their three children, George, Charlotte and Louis, are deprived of school. Thus, both parents had to learn to reconcile their commitments and their family life. For this, Queen Elizabeth II wished to grant them a small favor. Indeed, according to information published by Rebecca English, journalist for the Daily Mail, the royal couple have a wing in the house of Sandringham. This was deserted during the end of year celebrations and therefore allows them to continue to work, without taking any risk or endangering the Queen of England or themselves. Additionally, Kate Middleton and Prince William only live a few steps away as they currently reside at Anmer Hall.
Thanks to this arrangement, Prince William was able to take advantage of this space to chain video calls, including one which took place on January 17. While speaking with doctors and volunteers about the deployment of Covid-19, Kate Middleton’s husband said he was “proud of his grandmother”. Indeed, Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philipp were vaccinated against Covid-19. Respectively aged 94 and 99, they were therefore among the priority people for vaccination. An initiative of which Kate Middleton’s husband is very proud. “They got the vaccine and I’m very proud of them for doing it,” he said. He took advantage of this call to recall that it is “very important” that everyone is vaccinated in order to prevent the progression of the virus. He also wished “to congratulate everyone involved in this vaccination program because it looks great. I know what a huge difference it is going to make for everyone. It should also be emphasized that I think it is not something that happens very easily and that everyone has access to around the world, ”he concludes.
The unforgettable anecdote for Prince William
If Prince William goes to Sandringham for work, there is no doubt that he has never forgotten that famous night during which he was almost bitten by a dog. Indeed, PC Jon Chandler, a police officer who is retiring after 30 years in the police force in Norfolk, Virginia in the United Kingdom, gave an interview to Eastern Daily Press on January 16. As he recalled all of his years in service, he recalled a relatively fun evening. “I had a particularly interesting night when I was walking my dog, off leash, in the park and he suddenly chased the future King of England,” he first explained. A “memorable” night for the police officer who claimed that Prince William had taken the incident “jokingly”.
