As someone who has followed the royals, and dozens of royal tours, for decades, it is clear that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have not put a step wrong but instead this entire prefabricated narrative is being thrust upon them!

There were a series of spectacular events originally scheduled to mark the Golden Jubilee of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark this month, and while most of the events have been rescheduled for late summer, the opening of the splendid exhibition ‘A Queen’s Jewelry Box/En Dronnings Smykkeskrin‘ at the Amalienborg Palace Museum has gone ahead after a week’s delay.

When I write this, the interview the whole world is talking about and shook the monarchy, was broadcast almost a week ago. Many, many articles in newspapers, magazines, websites have been published and many, many people have commented it about it on social media, where emotions are running high.
I had expected the interview to be bad news for the monarchy, but I (and many with me) had not expected the interview to be so devastating and destructive. Though the writing had been on the wall actually – for quite some time.

We all know that the UK’s Royal Family occupies a special place in our collective unconscious. Their decisions and actions are followed by millions of people around the world. They are careful to lead by example and promote worthy causes.

Anxiety isn’t a new thing in royal weddings: from Prince William and Kate Middleton (who confided in the Archbishop of Canterbury their fears about the pressures that public scrutiny could put on their marriage) right through to Prince Harry, who was filled with “nerves” at his wedding (in stark contrast to what the Express called Meghan Markle’s “formidable poise”). Recently, it was revealed that Queen Letizia of Spain (who wed King Felipe VI in March, 2004) also encountered anxiety and doubt. It was exactly one month before her wedding, when she had stepped into the atelier of renowned designer, Pertegaz. She was said to have had an argument with her betrothed prior to her visit to the fashion house, and to have announced that the wedding was off – as reported in Spanish newspaper, El Español.
