Once again Kate Middleton and Prince William are in the news for their lavish lifestyle. This time however it is not the royal couple’s holiday that is being talked about.
This time around, royal watchers and critics are accusing Kate & William for taking lots of free gifts. The accusation is based on the fact that the couple “borrowed” a French chateau for free, Celebrity Dirty Laundry reports.
Kate Middleton & Prince William did not want to mingle with the common people during their summer holiday in South of France in July. The chateau was loaned to them by British business Michael Green.
The couple traveled to France with their kids Prince George and Princess Charlotte. They did not prefer to stay in a hotel, and hence went in for a loaned lavish chateau.
Back in July that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stayed at a lavish castle called the Chateau La Rocque. They reportedly did not want to be seen or photographed in public.
Besides, they took a private jet to their holiday destination a 10 million pounds Cessna. The jet was also loaned to them by their close friend the 6th Duke of Westminster, who expired earlier in August.
Queen Elizabeth is already miffed with the couple’s lavish lifestyle. Previously Kate Middleton & Prince William went on vacations to Switzerland, Barbados and Mustique.
“The Cambridges never have to pay for anything when they are in Mustique. They are always looked after,” said an unidentified source from the private island.
The insider added that the couple also have their own drivers, private chefs and a team of staff at their disposal. Meanwhile, London socialites mostly offer their vacation homes to the royal couple as it is seen as the “ultimate status symbol,” Yahoo reports.
It is most likely that Carole Middleton, Kate’s mother who arranges for the vacations, asks for favors from friends. The couple selling their gifted Range Rover, then the lavish vacation and other such “freebies” may not go down too well with the British tax payers.
