Why Kate dropped out...

No. 1 Magazine - - COVER STORY -

Af­ter Kate failed to at­tend the wed­ding of Will’s close friends in the sum­mer, ru­mours be­gan that per­haps all was not well be­hind closed doors. Will ended up at­tend­ing the wed­ding with Kate’s sis­ter Pippa in­stead of his wife. Ap­par­ently Kate dropped out so last minute that the seat­ing plan that was writ­ten onto a large an­tique mir­ror at the re­cep­tion still read ‘Wil­liam and Cather­ine Wales’. How­ever, sources close to the cou­ple say that the real rea­son Kate missed the wed­ding is be­cause when they’re to­gether they take too much at­ten­tion away from the bride and groom. Plus they worry the in­ti­macy of a wed­ding is spoiled if hun­dreds of pa­parazzi de­scend on the church. In fact, con­trary to ru­mours, it’s said that the cou­ple are ac­tu­ally hap­pier than ever. What works for the pair is that their re­la­tion­ship is built on years of trust – they’re best friends and share the same sense of hu­mour. They’re of­ten spot­ted crack­ing up to­gether at of­fi­cial en­gage­ments. In years gone by, royal cou­ples have seemed far more rigid, mis­matched and of­ten seem­ingly mis­er­able to­gether – chem­istry is not some­thing that was com­monly seen in royal cir­cles. But Kate and Will have it in spades. There­fore, any sto­ries that come out about there be­ing trou­ble in par­adise are sim­ply wa­ter off a ducks back for the cou­ple and will never cause them to ques­tion each other’s com­mit­ment.

The royal cou­ple’s shared sense of hu­mour unites them in the face of crit­i­cism.
