“They want to bring out this PR-trick about themselves (which has nothing to do with staff) in the middle of a pandemic … #RoyalTrainTour makes sense. They can give their support in a different way. It’s not that. Keep the ego of Prince William and Kate under control it is necessary, ”wrote another.
“Nothing in the future. They should find a more sensible way to use the platform and show support. A ‘royal train tour’ with a royal princess William and Kate.”
