The current Queen will not meet the parents of the future Queen unless it is absolutely unavoidable, that is on the special day of the future Queen. The reason of this snub is very obvious; the future Queen is just a commoner and so are her parents. The Queen of England has, therefore, shown her royal snub. The grandson of Queen Elizabeth II of England, who is a future king himself, is marrying a commoner and the wedding has already been scheduled to take place in April this year. But the Queen has not so far met the parents of the bride, Kate Middleton, and she will not meet her parents until the royal wedding. According to media reports, the monarch has never met Carole and Michael Middleton and a royal spokesperson admitted she has no plans to until Kate marries her grandson Prince William on April 29th.
Is it a royal snub? The royal spokesperson insists this is not. It is just that the queen has not yet felt the need to meet Miss Middleton’s parents. At present there are no plans for her to do so in the run-up to the wedding, but if she chooses to do so, it will be a private matter. Kate Middleton will permanently change the Royal family when she becomes Britain’s first middle class queen-in-waiting. For a future king to marry a woman from such an ordinary background amounts to a revolution in Royal terms. Meanwhile it has been revealed 29-year-old Kate has quit her role as project manager at her parents’ party planning company in order to focus on planning her wedding. A royal spokesperson says she has done so in order to concentrate full-time on preparing to become a member of the royal family.
