Prince William Gets Blasted After Paying An Emotional Tribute To This Controversial Royal

Prince William Charles Kuwait Drama

In late September, Kuwait’s Emir, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah died at the age of 91. The late royal was remembered and mourned by Prince William and Prince Charles.

The British royal family had close ties with Sheikh Sabah, who served his country in different capacities for more than 40 years.

Prince Charles met the top diplomat twice. He first took a trip to Kuwait in 1989 with his first wife, Princess Diana.

The Prince of Wales and his second wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, flew to Kuwait in 2007.

As for the Duke of Cambridge, he went to the Middle Eastern country in 2019 without Kate Middleton.

A grief-stricken Prince William penned an emotional message about Kuwait’s Emir, where he praised him for his humanitarian efforts.

Prince William’s condolences read: “A message from The Duke of Cambridge to the people of Kuwait 🇬🇧🇰🇼 following the death of the Amir of Kuwait: I was saddened to hear of the passing of His Highness Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmed Al Jaber Al Sabah.

I was privileged to meet His Highness during my visit to Kuwait last year and know that he will be fondly remembered for his global humanitarian efforts and commitment towards regional peace.

I send my sincere condolences to the Kuwaiti people as they mourn the death of His Highness.”

Critics went after William for honoring and mourning the controversial leader. A royal fan lashed out by saying: “Are we going to ignore the fact that the royal family is sending condolences regarding a country leader with human rights issues?”

Another commenter, who failed to see the point of the sorrowful message, stated: “I don’t think the Royal family has a concept of the real world; they spend to much time in their bubble.”

American politics were quickly mentioned in the heated debate with this comment: “The US has a vast human rights issue at its border right now. but it is a human rights violation to lock adults and kids in cages without access to sanitary facilities and healthcare.”

A Kuwaiti shared her personal opinion on the post: “Lgbt is against our country’s religion (Islam), and we’re happy that its also against our law. If you’re a foreigner in Kuwait who doesn’t like that, then simply leave. As a Kuwaiti woman, I can say that we have our full rights. Most of the time, its the strict family which Kuwaitis can report or sue, educate urself before talking about another country that has another religion, especially at a timing like this!”

This defender of the royal family shared this kind note: “The Duke of Cambridge is such a kind and compassionate man. He’s going to be a fabulous king. 🤴❤️❤️🙏🙏🇬🇧🇬🇧”

Some experts say William is just training as a future king with an eye on foreign policy.
