No Evidence Kate Middleton Plans To Retire From Royal Duties!

This appears to be nothing more than celebrity rumour created to generate page views, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Rumour Started At The National Enquirer

Let me start by pointing out that the rumour appears to have started at The National Enquirer, the infamous tabloid that falsely reported that Kate Middleton was pregnant with twins! The rumour was then posted by Radar Online:

While Kate reportedly hasn’t officially decided, the 42-year-old keeps pushing back the date when she’ll return to public life.

“Kate’s desperate struggle with the constant pressures of life in the royal fishbowl has clearly taken a terrible toll on her physical and mental health,” a senior palace source told the National Enquirer.

“She spent weeks staying out of the public eye after her operations — and it’s only strengthened her resolve to quit,” the source added.

“William is beside himself over her decision,” the source told the outlet. “He’s stunned his wife could ever consider such a move.”

“He made sure she knew what she was getting into when she married him and she’s done a brilliant job,” the source continued. “He’s concerned she’s become emotionally unstable, but she insists she’s finally seeing clearly!”

Interestingly – no one else has been able to corroborate this new claim by The National Enquirer. Neither royal experts, or reputable media outlets. Not even other tabloids!

Fact #2 : Kate Middleton Should Start Royal Duties By Easter

Instead, palace sources refuted those claims, stating on 12 March, that Kate Middleton is “recovering well and will be back by Easter“. That’s just over 2 weeks away – on March 31.

Another palace source also told US Weekly that the Princess of Wales is “extremely eager to get back to work“:

Kate’s extremely keen to get back to work. This has been one of the most challenging months for Kate as a royal, and she’s praying the fuss [over the Mother’s Day photo] dies down as soon as possible.

Kensington Palace had earlier stated, back in January, that the Princess Catherine would only return to public life after Easter. So, it appears that the Kate Middleton is eager to return to royal duties, and is not trying to delay her return to public life.

But whether the Princess of Wales starts working by the end of this month, or in April, multiple sources have indicated clearly that Kate Middleton fully intends to return to her royal duties.

Again, no one has been able to actually show any evidence Kate Middleton intends to retire from royal duties.

In fact, the UK Ministry of Defense announced on March 5, that the 2024 Trooping the Colour would be “reviewed by Her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales” on June 2024. It was another indication she fully intends to return to royal duty.

That post, and related information, were removed the next day though, probably because they preceded the official announcement by Kensington Palace that the Princess of Wales was officially returning to her royal duties.

Fact #3 : Kate Middleton Posted The Mother’s Day Photo

Let us not forget (even though she probably wished it never happened!) that Princess Catherine posted that infamous Mother’s Day photo that Prince William took on his Canon camera, which she later edited.

Princess Catherine even posted the photo with her personal message (indicated by her C sign-off):

Thank you for your kind wishes and continued support over the last two months.

Wishing everyone a Happy Mother’s Day. C

That is not the sign of someone who wants to leave the (harsh) limelight of royal duties and public life. If Princess Catherine wanted to retire, as some have claimed, she would not have bothered to have that photo taken, never mind actually edit the photo herself, and then post it with a personal message!

Instead, it appears that the couple decided to post that informal photo and message to reassure the public that the Princess of Wales was recovering well, and would soon be returning to public life.

Fact #4 : Kate Middleton Is An Adult

Let me just end by pointing out that Princess Catherine is an adult. She’s 42 years-old, and the mother of three children. No one can force her to return to royal duties if she doesn’t want to.

If she wants to retire from her royal duties, she will do so, regardless of what the British royal family wants. What are they going to do if she refuses? Bound and gag her and push her out with a smiley face mask???
