I have to admit that William has never been a favorite of mine, specially when it comes to royal watching; mostly due that the media is constantly praising him and sending veiled insults to Harry. I mean, let’s be fair and treat them equally, yes?
William likes to drink, in fact, there are several pictures of him looking worst for wear and yes, there is a picture of him grabbing a fan’s breast. Isn’t he awesome?
Anyway, while it’s true that Harry is no saint either, I find it funny how some underhanded things on William’s behalf have gone unnoticed or excused as “a joke”.
I honestly don’t have the time nor will to look for every instance of William’s side eye worthy behavior, but here are some lovely quotes:
On Kate during their college days:
A friend described it as a typical student existence: “They were just like any other couple, and spent most of the time sarcastically teasing each other. Once, they were watching a quiz show and Kate wasn’t able to answer an easy question. William started to imitate her, answering the question as if he were very stupid.”
How charming of him, right? Let’s mock someone who did a mistake and let’s pretend she’s stupid on top of it, yay, how awesome (and before you ask, yes, I was being sarcastic).
On Kate during the Australia & New Zealand tour:
‘There have been many highlights from the past ten days in this beautiful country – Catherine beating me at sailing does not count amongst them, not for me anyway.’
Well, someone’s a sore looser. Unsurprised, but seriously William, did you even hear yourself? You came off like a douche and whinny baby because you lost.
On Prince Harry:
And the prince couldn’t resist a joke at his brother’s expense, saying: ‘I feel tempted to cry “God for Harry, England and St. George”, but I really don’t want to lower the tone by bringing my brother into it.’
See what I was telling you? How is this funny? I mean, yes, Harry has done many mistakes (hello Vegas) but I don’t think that William should be making those ‘jokes’ publicly. Keep them in private, seriously.
And you know what’s a little ironic? That William was making a joke about Harry during a visit to a new 100 Million sport center; while Harry was about 1 month in of his 20 week second tour of Afghanistan as a soldier and Apache pilot. Way to go Will!
And of course, who can forget that he failed to tell the Queen (his grandmother) and his father about being engaged to Kate and only did so 2 hours before the engagement was made public?
And this is the same man who has a look of complete boredom during his wedding. And walked ahead of Kate during the Jubilee flotilla taking an umbrella and leaving Kate behind (because as we have seen, Kate’s a public danger with an umbrella in her hands); and speaking of the Aus/NZ tour… who can forget that when Kate’s red coat dress floated he did nothing to help her out (Kate was holding onto the railing and holding George with another hand).
I’m telling you, he’s a real Prince Charming that one. Yes, I was being sarcastic, again.
