“We wish you much happiness.” With an affectionate note, sent on time, i Dukes of Cambridge elegantly declined the invitation of David And Victoria Beckham at wedding of her son Brooklyn with Nicola Peltzwhich took place on Saturday, April 9 in Palm Beach, Florida.
“David and Victoria had invited William and Kate to the wedding but the dukes responded wishing them much happiness but explaining that they were unable to participateRevealed a source al Daily Mirror.
While everyone expected to see the prince in the luxurious Peltz family resort Harry and his wife Meghan Markle – which instead, apparently, they never received the invitation, despite having had the Beckhams at their wedding in 2018 – the precious cardboard was shipped to Kensington Palace, for the attention of the prince William and of Kate Middleton.
Nothing strange, actually: the Beckhams also attended the 2011 Royal Wedding at Westminster Abbey e friendship which unites them to the Dukes of Cambridge is longtime. However, for the royal couple fly to Florida for the wedding of their friends’ eldest son it would have been too complicated.
Net of security issues, a trip – even a private one – of two members of the royal family on the other side of the ocean is not so easily organized. There are work commitments already scheduledfamily commitments (April 9 was the anniversary of the death of grandfather Filippoit is easy to imagine that William and Kate wanted to visit their grandmother Elizabeth), and then three children, George, Charlotte And Louiswhich they had just left alone for so many days because of the official trip to the Caribbean.
And then there is another aspect. It has happened in the past to William and Kate to participate in private weddings of friends and not royals, but it was decidedly less media ceremonies of these. Their presence certainly would given luster to the whole party, but somehow it would also diverted attention from the brideat least half of it British of guests.
Therefore, with a lot of elegancethe Dukes of Cambridge have sent their message of good wishes (presumed in accompaniment to a gift the details of which are not discreetly known) and have declined the invitation, postponing the celebrations until the groom’s parents return to London. With a private dinner which children can also bring.
