Prince William Broke With Royal Tradition to Ask Sheep Farmers About Brexit

Prince William Broke With Royal Tradition to Ask Sheep Farmers About Brexit

The royals were introduced to the Brown family who had been farming in the area, by England's second largest lake, Lake Ullswater since the 1950s.

The couple helped with sheep shearing (William joked that the sheep he helped shear is "not going to be happy with her haircut") and repaired a dry-stone wall, and met with farmers to talk about the issues they face.

The look was a far cry from the casual outfit the mother opted for when she stepped out in the Lake District with her husband Prince William earlier this week.

Adam Day, who runs the Cumbria Farmer Network, a non-profit organization that provides help to farmers, said: "The reality is that there is not enough income to make a living from old-fashioned traditional sheep farming or cattle farming".

He said farmers would be hit by export tariffs and a "black hole" in subsidy payments.

"I was very surprised that farmers voted for Brexit, to be honest".

He told Prince William he felt "quite apprehensive" about the future.

Since the show has become a worldwide sensation, it's no surprise that Putin's Russian Federation abhors it. The idea does not match reality.


It's a daunting period in any child's life, even when you're a member of the British royal family with access to the best education facilities available.

While stopping by Keswick Market, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met with a pet owner named Kerry Irving and his three spaniels.

Mr Irving met the royal couple last month at a Buckingham Palace garden party with his therapy dog Max, and on Tuesday he welcomed the royal visitors to his home town of Keswick with Max, aged 11, and his other two springer spaniels, Paddy, aged two, and seven-month-old Prince Harry.

An anonymous source claiming insider knowledge told Us Weekly, "Kate finds the rumors hurtful, obviously, and hates the thought that one day her children will be able to read about them online".

"Then Kate was talking about her dog and she said, "Your dogs are so calm".

Mr Irving, 54, suffered a devastating auto crash in 2006, but overcame severe depression by walking his neighbour's dog Max before he adopted him.

The Duchess of Cambridge took time to greet some four-legged royal fans in Cumbria.
