A royal biographer has claimed that the Queen was ‘practically skipping’ with joy after Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot.
According to Andre Morton, the Queen felt relieved ‘the future of the monarchy was ‘secure’’ following difficult years where her children’s marriages collapsed and Princess Diana passed away.
Morton, who wrote the Princess of Wales’ biography, said: “The Queen was positively playful on the day of her grandson’s nuptials, ‘practically skipping’ according to one observer, absolutely thrilled at the way the public had reacted to the royal newlyweds.”
Wearing an Alexander McQueen wedding gown, Kate stole the hearts of the country as she received heartwarming cheers when she kissed the Duke of Cambridge on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
But nobody was happier than the Queen.
“She had a sense that the future of the Royal Family, her family, was now secure. The monarchy was once again held in admiration and affection by the masses,” Morton wrote.
This comes as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have stepped up to handle more duties. Kate just visited maternity healthcare organizations with Princess Anne, while Prince William sat next to his father Prince Charles as he read Her Majesty’s speech.
Kate also hosted a garden party at the Buckingham Palace with Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex.
According to reports, Prince William did not go to the said party as he went to unveil a new memorial to Royal Navy submariners at the National Memorial Arboretum.
Garden parties give the Royal family a chance to celebrate and reward those who have distinguished themselves in public service.
But it was announced recently that the Queen wouldn’t attend the parties due to her mobility problems.
