At first glance, the coronation of King Charles and Queen Camilla seemed a picture perfect one, but now that experts have analyzed the footage of the historical day, one thing caught their attention and it involves Camilla and Kate Middleton.

For the Britons, it’s all about tradition, and Camilla’s grandchildren being given such significant roles, that of Pages of Honor, just like Prince George, wasn’t received nicely by part of the fans and it seems that Kate Middleton was one of them.

Namely, a number of people from Camilla’s family were in attendance, and that included her former husband, Andrew Parker Bowles, as well as her son, Tom Parker Bowles and her daughter Laura Lopes, along with several of her grandchildren. Camilla’s sister, Annabel Elliot, was there with a friend, the Marchioness of Lansdowne. Overall, there were twenty people from Camilla’s side of the family at the Westminster Abby, which according to ABC royal reporter Victoria Murphy marked a new step for them.

“Camilla’s family are very much front and centre at this event, and that is interesting as this is a state occasion, and they are usually totally private,” she said. “Camilla’s family being so involved and visible does send, I think, a message about just how important she is to Charles’ reign and very much reminds us that this is their Coronation, not just his.”

On the other hand, Kate had four family members supporting her in Westminster Abbey; sister Pippa Middleton, brother James Middleton, and parents Carole and Michael Middleton.

This allegedly angered the Princess of Wales and she wasn’t afraid to show her dissatisfaction by ‘not moving a limb’ when Camilla left the Abbey and the rest of the guests took a bow.

“Camilla bought twenty Parker Bowles’ to the coronation, and there were four Middleton’s,” royal expert Tom Bower TV told host Dan Wooton.

“And what was even more noticeable was at the Windsor concert the following day, William makes no reference to Queen Camilla. So there is a tension there.”

The biographer then claimed the tension was a “dangerous position for Charles to be in,” especially after an “exhausted” Queen Camilla “disappeared” from the public eye as Kate was “behaving like the Queen.”

“If you look at the Coronation footage, as the King and Queen leave the thrones and head for the exit of Westminster Abbey, you’ll see that everyone bows and curtsies to the King and no one moves a limb, a muscle when Camilla passes,” the royal expert said.

“And that’s because they were angry with her. No-one moves. Kate and William were angry too. That anger went right through that small part of the congregation by the throne at the centre of Westminster Abbey. And in that moment it was absolutely noticeable to those people who had been excluded that nobody – let alone Kate – curtsied to Queen Camilla.”

Everyone who has seen the coronation has to agree that Camilla’s grandchildren did greatly as Pages of Honor, but many are convinced that the Queen’s daughter’s twin sons being given that significant roles broke the tradition British people swear by.

Kinsey Schofield, another royal expert, is among those who believe that the Queen took a step too far away from royal tradition.

“The Royal Family’s value is in their traditions. Traditions and ceremonies that the world envies. When they sway too far from those customs, you will anger and disappoint a significant amount of people that feel like those actions strip away at the mystique.” Further, Schofield believes that although they were under the spotlight during the coronation, Camilla’s family isn’t interesting to the royal fans. “Camilla’s popularity may have increased, but that doesn’t necessarily mean there will be any interest in her grandchildren,” the royal expert said.

The Queen loves spending time with her grandchildren, and according to her, so does King Charles who reads them Harry Potter when they are in Scotland.
