Kate Middleton was 'stung' by a remark that she needed a 'proper job' before she married the future king, a source has said.
It's said the Queen wasn't keen on the Duchess' love of holidays before her engagement with Prince William was announced.
We all love a good holiday in the sun after a year of working hard, especially after months of covid-19 restrictions preventing us from doing so.
The royals are no different, and for the second year in a row the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge decided to take a sunny UK staycation.
They, along with their children George, Louis and Charlotte, headed to the gorgeous Isles of Sicily off the Cornish coast, OK! Magazine reports.
Kate is no stranger to luxury stays away. She often frequented the island of Mustique in the Caribbean before her marriage into the royal family.
Yet allegedly the Queen wasn't too keen on Kate's jet-setting lifestyle.
"If she was not with William at Balmoral then the couple were skiing or holidaying on Mustique," claimed royal expert Katie Nicholl in her 2010 book William and Harry.
She continued: "Kate was there so often the press dubbed her 'Queen of Mustique', a title that had previously belonged to Princess Margaret.

"Britain was now in a recession and such frivolous displays of wealth were unpalatable to the Queen."
A source in the book claims that the Queen wanted Kate to have a "proper job" before any engagement was announced to the world.
The source claimed: "Swanning from one five-star holiday resort to another is not the prerequisite for a young woman possibly destined to be Queen."
The future Duchess was "stung" by the Queen's take, Katie claims.
Although the couple has visited Mustique since their marriage, two years of staycations could represent a turning point.
Katie told the publication: "While in the past we’ve seen the couple enjoy more lavish holidays skiing or visiting sunnier climates, they’ve been adopting a more traditional royal approach and spending their time at royal residences in the UK instead.

"This could obviously be the result of covid travel restrictions but I also believe that Kate and William are transforming into the future King and Queen and therefore are adopting more traditional practices."
She says that trips to their Norfolk family residence Amner Hall and summers spent in nature at Balmoral will become more common for the Cambridges.
Whereas holidays abroad with Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three, will be few and far between.
