William and Kate’s marriage ‘not as perfect as it seems’ as insiders expose private rows

EXCLUSIVE: A Kensington Palace insider has claimed that the Prince and Princess of Wales are not as hunky-dory behind closed doors.

Prince William and Princess Kate’s marriage is “not as perfect as it seems” but they know how to make it work, a Kensington Palace insider has claimed.

In an exclusive interview with Daily Express US, Tom Quinn, author of Gilded Youth: An Intimate History of Growing Up in the Royal Family, dished on his private conversations with a Palace insider.

The main takeaway from the intimate exchanges is that, like all healthy marriages, William and Kate have their differences but know how to compromise and make it work.

Mr Quinn explained: “From people I’ve spoken to, it’s not as placid. It’s not as perfect as it might seem.”

The royal author continued: “But William adopts the manners and the way of behaving of his grandmother and Kate is very good at not complaining and adopting.”

In Mr Quinn’s eyes, this has been the recipe for their marital success.

“Both of them have stuck to the thing that made the late Queen such a remarkable monarch,” he explained.

“They very, very rarely complain. And when they do, it’s always in measured terms.”

That is not to say William and Kate never have heated arguments. Mr Quinn learned from the Palace insider that they have “terrific rows”.

“Where some couples have a row and throw heavy vases at each other, William and Kate throw cushions at each other,” he said. “It’s always kept under control”.

By keeping their personal affairs private, the Waleses have invited less public scrutiny than Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Mr Quinn believes.

“They are less picked apart than Harry and Meghan,” he said.
