Prince William and Kate Middleton are not immune to disagreements. Author Tom Quinn shares their unique conflict resolution style.
They may seem like the picture-perfect couple, but behind closed doors, Prince William and Kate Middleton have their fair share of arguments. According to royal author Tom Quinn, who wrote the book “Gilded Youth: An Intimate History of Growing Up in the Royal Family,” the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge occasionally engage in heated disputes, although they have a unique way of keeping their quarrels in check.
Quinn revealed in an interview with Express that he had been informed by a source who worked at Kensington Palace that William and Kate indeed have rows. “It’s not a perfect marriage. They have terrific rows,” Quinn revealed. However, instead of hurling heavy vases or engaging in destructive behavior, the couple resorts to a more light-hearted approach. “Where some couples have a row and throw heavy vases at each other,” Quinn explained, “Williamand Kate throw cushions at each other.”
The author also shared that during their arguments, the couple may use certain nicknames for each other. He described Kate as the calm one, while William has been characterized as having a more fiery temperament. Despite their occasional clashes, Quinn emphasized that their disagreements are always kept under control.
William adopting the manners and behavior of his grandmother and Kate’s tendency not to complain. “Because William adopts the manners and ways of behaving of his grandmother and Kate is very good at not complaining, both of them have stuck to the thing that made Queen Elizabeth II such a remarkable monarch,” Quinn disclosed. He further explained that when the couple does express their grievances, it is done in measured terms.
