KATE, the Duchess of Cambridge’s ‘moody’ demeanour during the horse-drawn carriage ride at Trooping the Colour has finally been explained.
Meghan Markle conspiracies ‘absolutely nutters’ says Chris Evans
Kate was suffering from motion sickness from the swaying of the vintage coach, according to the Sunday Mirror. The Duchess progressed up the Mall with Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and the Duchess of Cornwall. However Kate, who decided to use a car for her wedding in 2011, has an unlikely sympathiser within the royal family.
The Queen reportedly suffers from seasickness too despite the fact she sails in the Royal Yacht Britannia for 43 years.
She reportedly recommended her favourite pills to Kate for the occasion.
A royal source said: “The truth is the Duchess of Cambridge gets very seasick and doesn’t enjoy the rocking motion of carriages.
“Worrying she may be ill on such an important occasion as Trooping the Colour added to her stress.

“Protocol meant she had no choice but to go by state carriage.”
The Queen admitted last year that her 1953 Coronation was made uncomfortable by a “horrible” two-hour journey in a 200-year-old, 24ft, four-tonne carriage pulled by eight horses.
She said it was “only sprung on leather and not very comfortable”.
Dr Qadeer Arshad from Imperial College London said: “Motion sickness is down to mixed messages coming from your ears and eyes.

“The most effective drug makes you drowsy so wouldn’t be suitable for royals before a state occasion.”
However he said there would be a more suitable cure for motion sickness in the future.
He said: ”We’ve developed a technique using electricity to stimulate parts of the brain to ease symptoms.”
Buckingham Palace was “unable to comment” on Kate’s seasickness.
