Kate and William may be forced to ditch new approach to royal visits due to 'high demand'

The Prince and Princess of Wales may have to rethink their new modern approach to royal life as they “may not be able to stick” to it, a royal expert has warned. As the most senior members of the Royal Family, William and Kate have chosen a handful of charities and causes they are passionate about, including mental health, climate change and early learning, instead of widening the net and looking after dozens – or even hundreds – of causes. In 2020 Prince William announced the Earthshot Prize which aims to tackle climate change. A year later, in June 2021, Kate launched The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood. But, royal commentator Jennie Bond questions how long the couple will be able to keep up focusing on just a handful of issues.

Speaking to OK! Ms Bond voiced concern over how long the Princess would be able to be in such a “huge demand”.

She said: “I think Catherine and William have taken this view which they may not be able to stick to which is to have far fewer patronages and make a difference in the ones that they do support.

“For Catherine we’re talking about mental health, early learning, bullying and addiction, so I don’t know if she’ll be able to carry that forward because there is such a demand for royal patronages and as future queen, she is going to be in huge demand.”

In recent weeks the Princess of Wales has been seen on numerous occasions as she marked some of the charities close to her heart.

Following the Coronation both the Prince and Princess of Wales joined around 8,000 guests to celebrate the work of volunteers, military personnel and members of the public at a garden party at Buckingham Palace.

The Princess of Wales joined children at Chelsea Flower Show earlier this week

Kate then joined Dame Kelly Holmes in a school in Bristol to mark Mental Health Awareness Week, where she spoke to students about the benefits of exercise.

In the same week, she visited the Anna Freud charity in London after becoming Patron of the charity in 2016.

Finally, the Princess made a surprise visit to the Chelsea Flower Show to attend the first-ever Children’s picnic where she met youngsters from ten schools taking part in the RHS Campaign for School Gardening.

Meanwhile, Prince William paid a visit to one of the 2022 Earthshot prize winners, Notpla.

The business won the award for ‘Build a Waste Free World’ at the ceremony in Boston last November.

William also paid tribute to those killed in the Manchester Arena bombing in 2017.

The Prince praised nine “incredible survivors after failings in mental health support were identified.

As Patron of the National Emergencies Trust William said: “The nine young and incredible minds behind this project, and the many more who have contributed, are an inspiration, turning significant personal challenges into positive change.

“This report makes clear that young people who have experienced the trauma of terrorism have needs unique to their age.

“These are minds that need the space to have their voices heard and feelings acknowledged.”

The couple are popular among the public

Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams claimed the Prince and Princess are the most “in demand” members of the Royal Family.

He said King Charles will “maximise the appeal” of the couple as heir to the throne.

Speaking on the Princess of Wales he added: “She and William are the world’s most glamorous royal couple.

“The way they interact with each other both formally and informally is a joy to see and we often keep in touch with their children through her photographs too.”
