Prince William just barely escaped the dog house with questioning Royal watchers!
On January 9th, Prince William made a solo appearance at the Royal London Hospital where he met with members of the staff along with patients and their families. Royal watchers were shocked to see the Duke at the event because January 9th just so happens to be his wife’s birthday!
That’s right, the Duchess of Cambridge celebrated her 37th birthday while Prince William was away.
At first, headlines suggested that there was strife between the couple. Many were shocked to see the couple with separate plans for the day, however, true fans knew that William’s absence during Kate’s birthday was not an issue.
For royals, it’s rather common to squeeze several events into one day. Not only that, but William spent Kate 36th birthday away from her as well as he blessed her with a day of pampering on her own. Which, let’s be honest, wouldn’t any mother love a little bit of quiet time for her birthday?
During William’s appearance at the Royal Hospital, he met with members of London’s Air Ambulance where he was just recently named the patron of the air ambulance’s anniversary cam, again. This year, the air ambulance celebrates its 30th birthday.
While visiting with staff and family members, William received a special gift that made him chuckle. After receiving gifts for his children, William was handed a handmade birthday card for his bride. As he read it, he said, “Well done for remembering.”
He must have had an inkling that royal watchers and tabloids were suggesting he had forgotten about Kate’s birthday himself, so he looked at the children and revealed the facts.
Prince William confidently confirmed, “I did remember this morning, so that was okay!”
The small crowd left and Rebecca English, a Royal Reporter, quickly posted the clip of William’s statement to Twitter where rumors were put to rest once and for all!
William will return home to Kensington after his day spent with the air ambulance and while we selfishly hope to see some exciting birthday party pictures, we imagine Will and Kate will opt for a quiet night in!
Be sure to wish the Duchess of Cambridge a happy happy birthday and we can’t wait to see what comes her way in 2019!
