Recently, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended Charlie van Starubanzee’s wedding last Saturday, yet the 36-year-old Duchess of Cambridge was nowhere to be seen. Both Meghan Markle, 37, and Prince Harry, 33, were pictured at the wedding, even with the fact it fell on Meghan’s birthday. Then why were the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge not there?
At the event in Surrey, we could see lots of familiar faces, including Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, while Prince William and Kate Middleton were suspiciously absent. Both couples were expected to make an appearance at Charlie van Straubenzee and Daisy Jenks wedding.
It was quite the surprise, as the Straubenzees are close friends of the royal family, especially to Prince William. Charlie’s older brother Thomas van Straubenzee is actually the godfather of Princess Charlotte, Prince William’s middle child.
Prince Harry was one of Charlie’s ushers this Saturday.
So where were Kate and Prince William? There are a couple of theories.
Maybe they were actually there, and they just got in and out without anyone seeing.
Another theory is that they didn’t make it to the church service, instead
Or, the most possible one, is that the couple are still on holiday.
Prince William and Kate Middleton, along with their three children have been enjoying a family holiday on the private island in the Caribbean.
The Cambridge’s were spotted at the airport when they left for their holiday last month, but are yet to be seen making their return trip. That might indicate that they are indeed still there.
A further possibility is that Prince William and Kate were not invited. However, this seems unlikely given the close family connection.
What have Kate and Prince William been doing in Mustique? They went on a romantic cocktail evening, it was reported.
The couple attended an exclusive party on the private island of Mustique while on a family holiday.
They were seen at a private party hosted by barman Basil Charles of Basil’s Bar.
Kate Middleton’s parents, Carole Middleton, 63, and Michael Middleton, 69, are also on holiday, so there is a chance that the grandparents are taking care of the kids.
The party was themed “A Splash of Gold” and was also attended by Mick Jagger and his daughter Jade.
Revelers wore gold outfits and partied late into the night, according to
The night was said to have ended in a fireworks display, according to the Daily Mail, although it is unclear whether Kate and William stayed this long.
