Prince William and Kate finding workload 'harder': 'Incredibly busy'

The pair have had a huge increase in work since King Charles' coronation.

Prince William and Kate Middleton are believed to be finding their workload since King Charles' coronation to be 'harder' and have been struggling to maintain a balance between their work life and parental duties.

Since the death of the late Queen Elizabeth II, the couple has had a huge increase in work, which came with the change from being the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to becoming the Prince and Princess of Wales.

Speaking with the Daily Express US, royal expert Robert Jobson, "I think that Kate and William are having to take on an awful lot and consider it, you know, but they've been very clear that their first priority is... to be parents to a young family."


William and Kate are parents to Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, eight, and Prince Louis, five.

Jobson added that Kate "gives this vision of a swan on the lake…that she's a perfect woman who does not put a foot wrong". But "below the surface, I think she is working very hard to maintain all the links with the King and other members of the royal family, but she would not jeopardise the school run".

The author went on to say that while "they're finding the level of work harder", they won't let it get in the way of their family.

This year, William has done 54 solo engagements, Kate has done 45, and together they have carried out 40 joint appearances, Gert's Royals website claims.


William and Kate are currently enjoying a summer break, with royal expert Jennie Bond telling OK! Magazine, "William and Catherine have had an incredibly busy time with the Coronation and their new responsibilities as Prince and Princess of Wales, and probably feel are due a bit of rest and relaxation…not that that is generally much of an option with three young children."
