According to an informed source, the royal family fears that politicians are “losing Scotland”. The Scots chose to stay with the UK in 2014, but many want a new independence referendum. There is a lot of discontent in the region over Brexit, which a large majority of Scots voted against in 2016.
William and Catherine will now be asked to spend more time at Balmoral, the summer home of the royal family in Scotland. They should start treating it like a full-fledged home and not a vacation home. It is also suggested that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge reconnect with the town of St Andrews, where they met years ago at university. “They should not appear as visitors, but rather as residents,” says an insider.
The couple should be used as “a visual symbol of the relationship between England and Scotland”. It is likely that William could do this role better than British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. According to the newspaper, a recent poll showed that 71% of Scots have a negative view of Johnson, while 69% are positive towards the Prince.
The pro-independence camp in Scotland has already made it clear that it does not want royal intervention. Former Scottish Prime Minister Alex Salmond recently suggested that his “desperate” ideological opponents are trying to put the Prince in their favour. According to British media, he called on the royal family to stay above politics.
