Kate Middleton & Prince William Play Arcade Games During Surprise Visit to Barry Island!

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (aka Kate Middleton) and Prince William play arcade games during their visit to the Island Leisure Amusement Arcade during their visit to Barry Island, South Wales on Wednesday (August 5).

The royal couple is visiting the island – in a totally unannounced visit – to speak with local businesses about the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The couple took part in a few activities at the arcade including a claw machine to win a stuffed animal, a game where they threw balls at a target, and more. Unfortunately, it didn’t look like they won any prizes that day!

It looks like the royal couple were maskless for this visit but the Duchess did wear a mask this week for the first time in public.

FYI: The Duchess is wearing Emilia Wickstead.

Princess Diana Seemingly Wanted Prince William to Be the Next King, Not Charles

An interview that Princess Diana did back in 1995 has resurfaced and in it, she gives a surprising answer on whether she thinks Prince Charles or Prince William should be the next King of England.

When Diana gave the interview, William was just 13-years-old, so he was not ready to take on such a big role.

“Do you think it would make more sense in the light of the marital difficulties that you and the Prince of Wales have had if the position of monarch passed directly to your son Prince William?” Martin Bashir asked her for the BBC1 Panorama interview (via People).

Diana responded, “Well, then you have to see that William‘s very young at the moment, so do you want a burden like that to be put on his shoulders at such an age? So I can’t answer that question.”

Martin then rephrased the question and asked, “Would it be your wish that when Prince William comes of age that he were to succeed the Queen rather than the current Prince of Wales?”

Diana said, “My wish is that my husband finds peace of mind, and from that follows others things, yes.”

Queen Elizabeth has publicly voiced her support for Charles to be her successor and royal experts say it’s highly unlikely that he will abdicate the throne to his son.

The family visited the Isles of Scilly, just off the south west tip of England, this week – a throwback to William‘s childhood back in 1989 when he and brother Prince Harry visited the islands with their parents, Princess Diana and Prince Charles.

The family chose to stay within the United Kingdom amid the global health crisis, and the growing challenge of foreign travel.

The family’s vacation was revealed when they were spotted by tourists while out on a bike ride on the isle of Tresco on Thursday (July 30).

William and Kate were riding their bicycles, having a laugh. They looked so happy enjoying the weather. I did do a double take. They were really friendly and said hello,” said a vacationer.

William recently revealed the gift he gave to Kate that she didn’t like!

Prince William Reveals the Gift He Gave Kate Middleton That She Didn't Like!

Prince William revealed he once gave Duchess Kate Middleton a gift that she didn’t like or understand very much.

While making an appearance on BBC Radio 5 Live’s “That Peter Crouch” podcast, the Prince revealed, “I did get my wife a pair of binoculars once. She’s never let me forget that.”

He said the gift was given “early on in their courtship.”

“I wrapped them. They were really nice,” he said. “I was trying to convince myself about it. I was like, ‘But these are really amazing, look how far you can see!’”

“She was looking at me going, ‘They’re binoculars, what’s going on?’ It didn’t go well,” he added. “Honestly, I have no idea why I bought her a pair of binoculars.”

Meghan Markle & Kate Middleton 'Simply Didn't Click' But Never Had a 'Catfight'

New details are emerging about the nature of Duchess Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle‘s relationship.

“I was always told that there was never a catfight as such, between the two girls. I was told there hadn’t been a fallout over anything specific. I was told that they simply didn’t click, that they didn’t have a huge amount in common,” royal expert Katie Nicholl told ET. “And this seems to be reinforced in the book, that apparently Kate felt they have nothing more in common than the fact that they lived at the same palace.”

Both Prince William and Kate Middleton and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle lived in Kensington Palace before the 2018 royal wedding.

Here’s what Meghan Markle hoped Kate Middleton would do during her time as a royal.

Meghan Markle Hoped Kate Middleton Would Reach Out Amid Drama (Report)

Meghan Markle was hoping for Kate Middleton to reach out, according to a new book.

The upcoming book Finding Freedom, penned by royal reporters Amid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, is making headlines for its examination of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s decision to step down as senior members of the royal family.

In a new excerpt on The Sunday Times on Sunday (July 26), the book claims that Kate “did little to bridge the divide” between Prince Harry and Prince William, or welcome Meghan to the family.

The book claims that Harry and William‘s alleged rift started when William questioned the pace at which his brother’s relationship with Meghan was moving. He reportedly wanted to make sure she had the right intentions, and that his brother wasn’t “blindsided by lust.”

“Though it was not necessarily her responsibility, Kate did little to bridge the divide. She was fiercely loyal to her husband and his family,” the book claims, adding “the gap between the brothers only widened” after Harry and Meghan married in 2018.

William and Kate’s feelings seemed obvious to the Sussexes that summer and beyond. Among all the friends and family Harry and Meghan hosted at their house in Oxfordshire between May 2018 and March 2019, the Cambridges failed to visit.”

The excerpt also addressed the “Dueling Duchesses” media narrative.

Meghan would agree with the assessment that the duchesses were not the best of friends. Their relationship hadn’t progressed much since she was Harry’s girlfriend. Although Meghan might have understood Kate’s wariness to strike up a meaningful friendship, they were still no closer by the time she was a fellow senior working member of the royal family and the wife of William’s brother. Flowers for her birthday were nice, but Meghan would far rather have had Kate check in on her during the most difficult times with the press,” the book reports.

However, they “were not at war with each other either” according to the book, adding “Meghan was disappointed that she and Kate hadn’t bonded over the position they shared, but she wasn’t losing sleep over it.”

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to Finding Freedom. This book is based on the authors’ own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting,” said a spokesperson for Meghan and Harry to ET.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently filed this lawsuit.
