Could you imagine President Obama taking the subway in Chicago? Or First Lady Michelle Obama taking her morning jog on the streets of New York City? Utter chaos would probably ensue, because let’s face it, the people running our country usually don’t take public transportation and, quite honestly, they shouldn’t.
Across the pond, it looks like Prince William and Kate Middleton are getting some pretty harsh criticism for doing just that while going underground with their latest travel arrangements.
Just last week, both Prince William and Kate Middleton were spotted taking the train at King’s Cross Station in London like a regular couple on the run. The Prince wore jeans while the Duchess tried to hide her face with a baseball cap. And while these two think it’s cute to try to fit in with the “commoners,” I’m not buying it.
Prince William is the Future King of England and him riding the train is a HUGE security threat. I mean, who knows what kind of craziness can go down if a royal looney tried to get too close to the couple. Plus, there’s a good chance that Wills and Kate had to send their entire protective detail down there to guard them before sending their bill to the British taxpayers. Surely this was planned, as I highly doubt they decided to take the train on a whim to get home. I can only imagine how difficult it was to get a seat on that train with their security team nearby. Now that I think about it, I would have been pissed to be on the same train as them. They are targets!
Simply put, Prince William and Kate Middleton need to stop this whole “We’re just like you!” charade. It’s very disrespectful toward the British public, who spend their hard earned pounds to support their royal lifestyles. Prince William and Kate need to make up their minds here, as they can’t carry around royal titles and still act like average folks when they want to. Sorry, but you can’t have the best of both worlds.
