Behind their royal smiles and elegant love, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s marriage is on the rocks, according to a new report. The couple is considering getting therapy for their problems, an idea Queen Elizabeth doesn’t like one bit!
Is the fairy-tale wedding between Prince William, 33, and Kate Middleton, 34, destined for a sad ending? The young couple has hit a rough spot and they’re willing to do what it takes to save their marriage – even getting some professional help!
These royal lovebirds are “going through a very rocky patch,” an insider tells In Touch magazine. “Things are so bad between them that they’re thinking about going to marriage counseling. Kate’s mother, Carole, wants them to stop arguing before things get out of control and she thinks therapy will help them.”
The sooner they check themselves into a session, the better. Kate and William are reportedly “constantly arguing” over her life in the spotlight. “Kate isn’t ready to be a full-time royal,” the insider said. “She’s feeling huge amounts of stress.” William, however, has been able to handle it since he’s been in it since birth. Kate’s husband thinks she needs to simply “ignore” the press and any public criticism she may face.

However, Kate “can’t just shake it off,” according to the insider, and getting professional help may just save her marriage. Sadly, it may not come in time. “It would be totally unheard of for royals to get counseling,” the insider tells In Touch. “Royals usually brush marriage problems under the carpet.”
There’s another obstacle blocking Kate and William getting the help they need: Queen Elizabeth. The 90-year-old British icon “doesn’t want to see any of her family making excuses” for their troubles, the source says. When it comes to the idea of her son and daughter-in-law working out their problems in therapy, “the queen won’t approve of it at all. It’s just not the royal way. She believes couples should sort out their differences themselves and not tell their secrets to the shrink.”
Do you think Kate and William should get therapy if they’re having issues, HollywoodLifers? Or do you think they should work it out themselves?
