Prince William and Kate Middleton Cancel Ski Trip Because of Recession

The Royal family has so much money; they’re not the 1%. They’re like the .000001%. And Prince William and Kate Middleton are well aware of their status; they’re also well aware that England is in the middle of a recession. That’s why they decided to cancel their ski trip.

“The palace thinks it would send a bad message to be away during this time," a source tells Us Weekly.

Okay, these guys are trying waaay too hard to be the people’s Prince and Princess. You want to be a real Princess? Say, 'Recession my ass, I’m going skiing, son! Ain’t my fault people poor!'

Because I’m pretty sure that’s what 99% of us would do. Okay, maybe just Americans.

Queen Elizabeth is set to give a Christmas Day speech, and in it, she’s also expected to address England’s recession. From there, the royals will spend Christmas in Sandringham manor, which is the Queen’s retreat in Norfolk, England. According to a source, Pippa will head to the retreat on December 26, to celebrate Boxing Day.

And no, Boxing Day isn’t a holiday celebrating Manny Pacquiao. It’s—actually, I have no idea what it is. I tried to Wikipedia it but there were like, a ton of words and hardly any pictures so, like any normal human being, I shrugged and said, “well, guess I’ll never know.”

Meanwhile, there’s an annual pheasant hunt that takes place on Boxing Day, and after receiving a letter from PETA, Middleton has chosen not to partake in the event. Ingrid Newkird, PETA President, asked Middleton to follow in the footsteps of Diana and not contribute to the cruelty of hunting for sport.
