Perhaps Queen Elizabeth did not expect to receive such a blow in her old age. British favorites Prince William and Duchess Kate are going to give up their titles. And all because they are sure that all this “ceremonial” has become obsolete and they want to be closer to the people, to be called simply Kate and William.
According to sources close to the couple, the idea to give up the titles came to them after a recent tour of the Caribbean, where the common people met them with hostility, showing posters demanding that the “prince” get out of his fairy tale, and they want independence from the UK. According to the couple, the rejection of ceremonies will make the institution of the monarchy more modern and understandable for subjects, because it will simplify communication.
How Elizabeth reacts to this is unknown. However, some fans of Kate and William suspect that they were brainwashed by Meghan Markle, who gave up the title of Prince Harry.
