Which royals don’t work all that much?

Four senior citizens are apparently much more energetic than the royal family now on the road in Canada

In the House of Windsor horse race, there is a front runner, a seasoned pro hobbled by injury, middle-of-the-pack runners and those trailing far behind. The laggards are William and Kate.

An analysis of the top six royals reveals that the young, energetic Cambridges come in last, well behind four senior citizens. As well, Kate undertakes fewer engagements than any other recent young bride, though, like them, she has a nanny and staff.

“They’ve made it clear they want to spend time with George and Charlotte while they’re young,” explains Emily Nash, Hello magazine’s royal correspondent. “It may be several decades before William becomes king.”

Although they have the Queen’s blessing, that hasn’t stopped the criticism. William has been labelled “work-shy” for not undertaking his first duty of 2016 until Feb. 16.

For a family that believes they must be seen to be believed, the Cambridges have some work to do. Literally.

Which royals don’t work all that much?

  1. Give her a break. She has two preschool children. She has years and years to perform royal duties.

    • Please, both she and William have excuse after excuse why they cannot work: Diana’s death, the imaginary excuse of having to look after the children (those children don’t even seem to relate to them at all), or their favourite: going on yet another vacation at taxpayer expense. William is privately known as a very angry, stubborn and arrogant man, and Kate, well, I will leave it your imagination what her reputation is. Couldn’t work as a young woman because she had to be “on call”. I don’t care why they do – just wonder why their children don’t look royal at all.

  2. Funny how the excuses always start for these two. If she is focusing on raising her two children why does she need a full time nanny? A nanny is usually on board when the royals are busy with engagements which doesn’t seem to be the case for these two. Kate certainly isn’t busy cleaning her large mansion either considering she has a house full of staff.
