KATE, the Duchess of Cambridge, will go to Trooping the Color on the Queen’s birthday with husband Prince William and the rest of the royal family – but she won’t look for part of it.
Trooping the Color is a special military parade on the occasion of the official birthday of the monarch. It starts at Buckingham Palace and goes through The Mall to Horse Guard’s Parade. More than 1400 soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians are participating.
However, the Duchess of Cambridge once admitted that she is allergic to horses, according to the Daily Mail.
She reportedly told Australian author Kathy Lette during a polo show in 2008 after being viewed from a small tent in the corner of the field.
This means that the few hundred horses participating in the Queen’s birthday march can be a problem for Kate Middleton .
During the 2011 Trooping the Color, she was photographed on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with her hands in front of her face in a sneeze.
Moreover, Kate Middleton usually rides a horse-drawn carriage with Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
Unfortunately for Kate, it’s not just an annual thing to be surrounded by horses; The royal family is famously associated with equestrian sport.
Prince Philip once said about his daughter, Princess Anne: “If it doesn’t fart or eat hay, she’s not interested.”
Anne’s daughter Zara Tindall – formerly Zara Phillips – was even the Eventing World Champion.
Most members of the royal family learn to ride, some play polo and some ride horses in parades, including the queen until quite recently.
Despite the 90-year-old horses, the queen continues to ride privately, which was confirmed after she was spotted in Windsor this April.
She is also the owner of various race horses.
Princess Diana, who was always afraid of horses, had a notorious affair with her driving instructor, Major James Hewitt.
Meanwhile, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall are hunting, while Prince William and Harry love polo.
Kate’s allergy makes it all the more impressive that she loyally attends so many events with the animals.
When she allegedly turned out to be her allergy to Mrs. Lette, she sat alone watching the polo.
Mrs. Lette asked, “Why don’t you come to the rest of the party?”, Referring to a reception in the tent next door.
Kate Middleton apparently answered: “I have to pay attention every second. I will discuss the game in detail later.”
The writer said: “You can’t have much fun here. Why don’t you play a polo yourself?”
Kate told her: “I am allergic to horses.”
This shows her dedication not only to watch these events, but also to talk about them for a long time.
