ROYAL commentator, Robert Jobson, has claimed there may be an alternative reason why Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William are “delaying their Balmoral trip”.
The Queen visits her Scottish highland home every year to enjoy some time away from the spotlight, often inviting members of the Royal Family to join her and Prince Phillip during their stay. Writing in the Daily Mail, Mr Jobson claims the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are waiting until Meghan and Harry return to Windsor before heading up to Balmoral. Mr Jobson claims Kate and William’s delay in their trip could be down to previous comments made by both Harry and Meghan rubbing them up the wrong way.
He said: “The Duke of Sussex’s latest ‘woke’ outburst, in which he declared that he and Meghan plan to have a two children ‘maximum’ in a bid to save the planet, may well have irked the Cambridges, who already have three.”
The royal commentator added how Meghan may have also annoyed her sister-in-law after saying she didn’t want to appear “boastful’ by appearing on the front cover of her Vogue September issue.
Mr Jobson said: “What will have fuelled William and Kate’s disquiet, too, is Meghan’s stint as guest editor on British Vogue’s September issue.
“The Duchess insisted it would have been ‘boastful’ to appear on the cover – but failed to mention that Kate became the fashion bible’s cover star two years previously.”

Kate Middleton was on the front cover of Vogue after being photographed in 2016 for the centenary issue.
She isn’t the only royal to be on the cover as Princess Diana adorned the front of page of Vogue three times.
Mr Jobson claimed William and Harry “relished their time together at Balmoral” as children.
He added it allowed them to spend “entire summers there with their mother away from prying eyes”.

Should the Cambridge and Sussex visits coincide, Mr Jobson claims it will be easy for them to avoid each other.
He claims William and Kate will most likely reside in the former gamekeeper’s cottage on site with their three children.
Meghan and Harry will stay on a smaller cottage further out on the estate with baby Archie, so the two couples may not cross paths.
Sources claim the “Fab Four” split began when Prince Harry “read William and Kate the riot act” for “not supporting” Meghan Markle before their Royal Wedding.
In addition to this friends have “stopped inviting” Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to dinner parties because they “frown upon their PDA”.
