I don't think its because they are bitter or resentful just that its not good for the institution. If all the focus is on Catherine, Harry and William it makes things more difficult especially for Charles who is still trying to gain some momentum leading up to the succession.

Excellent point. That's my impression as well.

Another excellent point. The young royals have all the time in the world to create a solid foundation, while Charles' time is running out. He should get more 'air time' than his children, and rightfully so. He is the next King.

They said, the palace officials wanted The Queen to be the main focus, because it was her year to be featured in the spotlight. Well, who was the first member of the royal family to accompany Her majesty & Prince Philip on a tour around the UK? Catherine.
I agree with you in this, and as several people who have been or are close to her have said ''The Queen is not the type of person to mind about that.''

She didn't want Diana to drop her charities in the 1990s, and I have heard from a very reliable source that she wanted William and Kate to take on full time royal duties, but she respected and understood (as she always does) that this was not what they wanted. And there wasn't much money to fund them.

As other here have said, there are no need for them to do more now. William and Kate have done a great job so far, and will do so in the future.

Just noticed this. I don't mean to throw cold water on your 'reliable source'... but unless you can give some fact based evidence I'll pass. Many people on various blogs and forums claim to be high ranking palace insiders which you'd have to be to be privy to such information

I heard it from my grandfather, but I think both Robert Hardman and Alastair Bruce has said something similar about it.

I don't mean to be rude but how is your grandfather placed to know this. Is he employed or close to anybody involved

With just 12 days to go until the Queen overtakes Queen Victoria as our longest-serving monarch, the comparisons between their reigns will be plentiful.

There is, however, one aspect of their tenures that has long been beyond compare; their experience of foreign travel.

While Victoria reigned over more than 70 countries, she never left Europe. As the map above shows, Queen Elizabeth II, currently monarch of just 16 realms, has visited 116 countries during 265 official visits, making her by far the most travelled monarch in British history. Not bad for someone who doesn’t possess a passport.

Put another way, the Queen has been to Canada more times than the total of all of Victoria’s official foreign excursions combined.

Interesting to see where the Queen has visited most, surprised in some ways she hasn't visited some of the European countries more

No fuss as Queen breaks reign record | The Sunday Times
Quote:
THE leaders of the main political parties will mark the day when the Queen becomes the country’s longest-reigning monarch with speeches in the Commons.

David Cameron and Harriet Harman, the acting Labour leader, will pay their tributes on September 9, the day when the Queen overtakes Victoria, her great-great-grandmother, after 63 years and 216 days.

A commemorative coin depicting the Queen through her reign has been unveiled to mark her becoming the longest reigning monarch in British history.

The Royal Mint has designed the £20 fine silver face value coin depicting the Queen's journey through the five portraits that have appeared of her on UK coins.

Designed by Stephen Taylor, it shows the Queen all the way from her coronation to now.

Aren't the Cambridges usually up at Balmoral for a few days in September anyway? Or so Sebastian speculates, no doubt. That way he can claim accuracy if William and Kate are there on September 9th.

The Cambridges, as do most of the family, spend some time up in Balmoral over the summer, no surprises there!
