Another recent revelation from the Royal family is that Kate Middleton was forced to undergo a fertility test prior to her nuptials to Prince William. The Royal family has long been the centre of controversies, scandals, and the paparazzi’s favourite targets because of its status as royalty. Although being ruled for the longest by a queen. The royal family has never truly been open about its feminist values, from Princess Diana’s passing to Meghan Markle’s revelations regarding mental health difficulties.
With yet another discovery of Kate Middlton’s pre-marriage fertility test from Tom Quinn’s most recent book Gilded Youth: An Intimate History of Growing Up in the Royal Family. Here is a list of all the instances in which women experienced the Royal family’s overt sexism.
Before being married, Kate Middleton was forced to undergo a fertility test.
According to Quinn’s book, the “normal measures” were taken before Prince William and Middleton’s royal wedding. Which is why it was purportedly permitted. They are always performed to guarantee that a future queen can have children. There’s no question that the marriage would not have worked out if Kate hadn’t been fertile, according to a book extract.
Quinn also alluded to Lady Diana Spencer’s 1981 wedding to Prince Charles. Suggesting that Diana had undergone similar medical tests prior to her union with Charles. In a brief interaction with the current author. Diana claimed that she had mistakenly believed her premarital check-ups had to do with general health. And had discovered later that she had actually been tested for fertility. I basically went along with everything at that point because I was so innocent, she said.
Princess Diana and Prince Charles
The couple’s marriage, its problems, Lady Diana’s comments, discoveries about the Royal family. And her final passing have been the largest scandals to affect the Royal family to date. The world saw the fairy-tale marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana in 1981 quickly come to an end due to accusations of adultery. A leaked phone conversation between the prince and his lover. And a separation that was eventually converted to a divorce at the Queen’s request. And the Queen at the time did very little during all of this.
