William and Kate ready for Scotland

Are there plans to visit Kensington Palace soon? According to media reports, advisers to the British royal family have advised Prince William and Kate to stay in the Scottish palace. There may be a clear political motivation behind this.

According to a report, Prince William and his wife Kate may spend a lot more time in Scotland in the future. According to a source close to the royal family in the Times, advisers had recommended the couple move to Scottish Balmoral Castle – formerly a holiday home for the royals. “They want them to look like residents, not visitors.”

William and Kate, 39, recently visited their old university in St Andrews, Scotland, and several other places in Scotland on a day trip. Until now, Kensington Palace in London has been his main residence – but during the pandemic, the family of five also spent a lot of time at a country house in the eastern English county of Norfolk.

The background of the plans may have been the strong desire of many Scots for independence from the United Kingdom. Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon wants her compatriots to vote in a new referendum after the pandemic. Brexit has given the independence movement a significant tailwind in recent years. In the event of partition, Sturgeon wants Scotland to return to the European Union as an independent country.

According to the report, the royal family wants to use their role to strengthen the unity of the state. Prince William is considered popular in Scotland. There was initially no official confirmation of the plans from Buckingham Palace.
