Rejecting the Scottish kilt is only a symbol.

The lack of interest in Scotland does not help keep the Kingdom United.
I am sorry if this comes across as a rude or ignorant ?, but up until now, I never was aware/ or heard that there was a difference between being English, and being British. Can someone please explain the difference?

Oh gawd I never want to see William in a kilt, I want to see Harry in one even less.
As for this idea that just because they don't wear kilts means they don't like Scotland is ridiculous and incredibly presumptuous on anyone's part.

People who are English are from England. People who are Welsh are from Wales. People who are Scots are from Scotland. But all these people are from Great Britain and are British. Great Britain plus Northern Ireland (the part of Ireland that isn't part of the Republic of Ireland) make up the United Kingdom.

Here's a video:

Royal Family Kilts

Look at post #10 at this website, a picture with William and Harry in kilts as boys (which BTW is the same picture you see when you finish a tour of the Palace of Holyroodhouse)
