Calum from Galashiels told Channel 5’s Jeremy Vine programme that the idea Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge can smooth over the desire for Scottish independence with their royal engagements in Scotland is a red herring. The furious caller added that the problem was the “House of Westminster not the House of Windsor.”
Calum said: “Jeremy, I think it is a bit of a red herring.
“You need to ask yourself as this is clearly political why Boris Johnson is spending more time in Scotland, I think we know the answer to that one.
“The things we are concerned about in Scotland are Brexit, the fact that we have a Conservative Government, we have not had one of those in Scotland for a long time.
“I have got nothing against Kate and William, I am sure they are very nice people.
“But the idea that they can come up here and open a few hospitals is a red herring.
“The problem is not the House of Windsor, it is the House of Westminster.”

“However, the risk with William and Kate is that the Crown will not die of scandals, but of boredom.

“They are a fairly mild family, they are very good guys, while the Windsors have always been the object of a spasmodic curiosity for their stories.”
Prince William is second in line to the throne behind his father Prince Charles.
However, a YouGov poll in March 2021, found that Prince William was the most popular choice for the UK’s next head of state.
Despite being first in line to the throne, Prince Charles ranked behind David Attenborough and Boris Johnson in the poll as well as receiving the same level of support as Stephen Frey.
