Kate Middleton go back to the United Kingdom
It wasn’t a smooth trip to Northern Ireland for Prince William and Kate Middleton. A protester heckled the Princess of Wales on Thursday during a royal walkabout (Oct. 6). A clip of a woman demanding that Kate go back to the United Kingdom has gone viral. Antrim Road in north Belfast is where the alleged assault occurred, and accounts indicate that the woman challenged Kate.
While Kate was busy making new friends, one lady said to her, “Nice to meet you, but it would be nicer if you were in your own country.” It looked like the protester was recording their conversation on his phone.
She said, “Ireland belongs to the Irish,” and the 40-year-old princess laughed nervously. The reason for the booing is obvious. Despite Ireland’s declaration of independence in 1949, many Northern Irish still feel like they should be considered part of the United States.
How Did People Respond?
Social media users have clearly come to Kate’s defense. However, not everyone is as lovable as Princess Diana. A number of people were also angered by this and clapped back at the protester. That’s quite disrespectful, one guy tweeted. Another user advised, “If you don’t like the Royals, don’t show up to an event with Royals.”
One Twitter user suggested that people hold a vote rather than post sexist comments. Some people thought Kate Middleton handled the issue exceptionally well. One commentator praised the Princess of Wales’ “graceful” handling of the situation. She kept her composure and went on. That was “very much outshone by the Princess of Wales,” another observer remarked.
Why Did Kate Travel to Northern Ireland?
When Kate Middleton and Prince William wed in 2011, the late Queen Elizabeth bestowed upon them the titles of “Baron and Baroness Carrickfergus.” During their brief visit to Northern Ireland, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge paid a number of charitable and community organization visits in Belfast and Carrickfergus.
The incident took place as the royal couple was chatting with employees of the Public Initiative for the Prevention of Suicide and Self-Harm (PIPS) organization. Not for the first time, either. This year’s royal trip to the Caribbean was cut short when a protest by a local indigenous group in Belize prompted the couple to cancel their plans to visit the region.
In 2003, after a spate of 14 suicides among young people. PIPS was established to address this issue. During their first official tour, the Prince and Princess of Wales spoke at PIPS about their efforts to reduce suicide and self-harm.
In addition, the two participated in “art therapy and painted pumpkins” with the center’s therapist-supervised patient youngsters. However, Ireland once again empathizes with the royal family’s jealousy for several reasons. During the conflict between republicans and unionists in 1979, an IRA member shot and killed Lord Mountbatten. However, there are scars in the nation that may never fully mend.
