This is the message Prince William is sending

According to British royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams, 74, Prince William is sending a clear message with his return to official engagements and the increase in private public appearances. “The royals know that everything they do conveys a message in one way or another,” Fitzwilliams noted in an interview with the British “Sun”.

With his performances over the past few days, William would “send a sign that a return to normality” has taken place. However, in view of Princess Kate’s ongoing “preventive chemotherapy”, which the 42-year-old still has to undergo, the royal expert restricts: “Obviously very little is normal in the royal family at the moment.” Nevertheless, William is keen to use his appearances to convey to the British public “that some things continue more or less normally,” says expert Fitzwilliams.
