Now that Prince William and Kate Middleton have wrapped up their whirlwind 11-day tour of North America, the newlyweds just want some peace and quiet!
“Since they got married, they were on honeymoon and in London for most of June for family events and other events,” a spokesman for William and Kate tells the Daily Mail. “They want to go back and have a married life together under the radar and enjoy their life in Anglesey [Wales, where William is stationed with the Royal Air Force] — keeping things chilled.”
In fact, William and Kate are expected to attend only one or two engagements a month until Christmas—a move that received a stamp of approval from both William’s father and grandmother. “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,” the spokesman said. “[William and Kate] 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. They have not really lived together since their wedding and want to spend time together.”
Aside from wanting a little break from the limelight, William needs to focus on his Royal Air Force training back in Wales, not criss-crossing the globe. “The Duke is going for his flying captaincy which he hopes to get in early 2012,” says the spokesman. “He needs to keep up his flying hours and there are some exams to get through, a lot of work needs to be done and he has to dedicate himself to that.”
Also in 2012, William is expected to spend two months on deployment on the Falkland Islands—and Kate’s won’t be accompanying him.
But on a more festive note, 2012 is The Queen’s Jubilee year, marking her 60th anniversary of her becoming monarch. That means lots of traveling for William and Kate, who will visit a series of Commonwealth countries on behalf of the Queen.
And judging by the rave reviews the Palace gave Kate on her inaugural overseas tour, she’s already a pro. “It was a big ask thrusting her into the limelight like that—particularly because she hasn’t had training or experience at being a working royal—but she has just taken it all in her stride,” a senior Royal aide told the Daily Mail. “She really has blown us all away.”
