the magazine Prince William Living Covers news from sleepy Prince William County, near Washington, with plenty of flip-flops or a fall festival, but it has found itself at the center of world news since the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
In Google, his website – princewilliamliving.com – appears just after that of the British royal family in response to the question “How do you contact Prince William?”.
As a result, letters of condolence, drawings, and poems pour into the magazine’s two-day message service, and a kind spirit has even offered to send an accessory to decorate the coffin of the deceased.
A total of about 80 publications arrived from India, Bhutan, Japan and Egypt via America and the United Kingdom, according to its editor, Rebecca Barnes. “Even the English don’t know how to use Google,” she joked to AFP.
Not everyone is selfless. A teenager explains that she is a huge fan of the royal family and requests an invitation to the funeral of the deceased. Another person presents themselves as a “very clean person” and provides “housekeeping or other” services.
However, Prince William County, in Virginia, existed long before Prince William, for the first time in line of succession since his father, King Charles III, took the throne. Formed in 1731, it was named in honor of the Duke of Cumberland, the third son of King George II.
Confusion is not new. Letters from Lady Di and Charles’ son always made it to the magazine’s mailbox. Rebecca Barnes gives up on the answer, but sometimes she just can’t help it.
To a man who had just asked her what she should do to become the next King of England, she advised her to send an application file. “Who am I to stand in his way?”
