Prince Charles ‘Wasn’t Pleased’ With These Kate and William Photos


Remember when Prince William and Kate Middleton got married in a historic ceremony in 2011? Most fans of the royal family thought the pair were adorable and charming as newlyweds. But according to book about Prince Charles, he reportedly had a very different opinion.

In Prince Charles: The Passions and Paradoxes of an Improbable Life (Buy on Amazon, $20), author Sally Bedell Smith claims that Prince William and Kate Middleton “irked” Prince Charles while they were on their post-wedding North American tour. The future king apparently dismissed the royal pair’s trip to California and Canada because it included so many photo ops, Marie Claire reported.

Smith alleges that Prince Charles “wasn’t pleased” with how camera-friendly Prince William and Kate Middleton acted on the trip. Smith added that the heir apparent even considered some of the photos from the tour in particular to be “tasteless.”

Yikes! Well, if that’s really what Prince Charles thought about the tour photos, we definitely couldn’t disagree more. Take a look at a few of our favorite pictures from the famous royal journey below.
