William and Kate plan to lead a 'quiet life' for the rest of the year, a Clarence House spokesman has confirmed
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have rarely been out of the spotlight in recent weeks, after embarking on whistle-stop royal tour of North America and Canada. But it seems we could be set to see a lot less of our favourite royal couple for the rest of the year.
A Clarence House spokesman has confirmed Prince William and Kate Middleton are planning to go ‘under the radar’ for the rest of the year, and are looking forward to living a quieter life at their home in Anglesey.
It’s thought that Prince William – who will return to work as a Search and Rescue pilot next week – will up his workload in a bid to qualify for RAF Captaincy, while Kate Middleton will spend time at home learning about his charitable interests, and choosing some of her own.
In addition, reports suggest the newlywed couple are keen not to upstage the Queen in the run up to her 2012 Diamond Jubilee, and are only to happy to keep a low profile at home.
‘They are very conscious to make sure that the run-up to 2012 is the Queen’s year. She quite rightly should be in spotlight,’ said spokesman for the couple.
‘The Queen and the Prince of Wales are fully aware of their plan to go under the radar in the next few months and are very supportive of it.
‘It’s that model of the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh in Malta.
It’s thought the couple will attend the wedding of Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall at the end of July, and carry out just ‘one or two’ public engagements per month until the end of the year.
‘They have the rest of their lives to be public figures and working hard on behalf of the Queen and want to keep things on a level and enjoy their marriage,’ the insider added.
