A preview of Robert Hardman’s upcoming book “The Making of a King: King Charles III and the Modern Monarchy” provides fresh insight into the circumstances surrounding Queen Elizabeth’s death on September 8, 2022.
The narrative centres on the reasons Kate Middleton did not go to Balmoral with Prince William during the Queen’s bad health condition.
The reason is, that Kate Middleton prioritizes remaining in Windsor with their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. Meanwhile, Prince William and other royal family members hurried to Queen Elizabeth’s side in Balmoral as her health was deteriorating.
According to the book, the three siblings had just started their new school term, which is why Kate felt it was important to spend the day with them.
The book claims that Kate Middleton did not experience any kind of isolation, unlike Meghan Markle, which is why she did not attend a royal gathering.
Instead, the book makes it clear that Kate Middleton had chosen not to attend the function due to her children’s education. According to a royal adviser quoted in the book, Prince Harry found it simpler to tell people he would be attending the event by himself.
Prince Harry describes the day Queen Elizabeth passed away in his biography “Spare,” which was published in January 2023.
A conversation between Harry and Prince Charles is revealed in the book, “She was, of course, up in Balmoral. Those lovely, gloomy late-summer days.
Families came first when Kate Middleton decided to stay with her children, as the book gives us a better picture of the complexities surrounding Queen Elizabeth’s final days. The disclosure dispels prior conceptions of exclusion, stressing that her absence was a personal choice.
