No Servants For Prince William And Kate Middleton For 3 Years
Prince Charles is rumored to have a servant who squirts his toothpaste on his toothbrush. But Prince William and Kate Middleton will forgo such extravagances — for three years at least. The engaged couple will do their own laundry and cook their own meals for the remainder of the prince’s RAF military service, according to a royal source. That’s how long the couple intends to live on weekends in a cottage William rented in the town of Anglesey. “Prince William is not into extravagance and, like any other young officer in the armed forces, that is how he chooses to live his life,” said the source. “He and [Kate] live without domestic staff and they wouldn’t do it any other way. That’s the life they want to lead.” Of course, William and Kate have 24-hour body guards protecting them, but otherwise they live without maids or butlers. At least these kids don’t have any full-time staff; somehow I don’t imagine Prince William scrubbing his own toilet once a week.
Anyway, compare their “normal” life to Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, who reportedly have a personal staff of 150 that adds up to 6 million pounds per year! Prince Charles reportedly once had someone else hold the cup while he gave a urine sample. Ew! Maybe William and Kate are just more sensitive to the fact the global economy is in the pooper and people will hate them if they don’t do their own chores. Which, honestly, is pretty savvy of them.
