Did Prince William & Kate receive new iPhones when meeting Apple CEO Tim Cook?

Well, turns out I was wrong! In my previous article, I mentioned that Prince William had been relatively inactive since returning from his trip to New York. However, on Thursday, September 28th, William and Kate had an interesting meeting with Apple CEO Tim Cook at Kensington Palace. The fact that Kate wore her “top CEO” outfit, consisting of a pinstripe suit with shiny gold buttons and a turtleneck, made the occasion even more intriguing. Surprisingly, Kensington Palace did not release any official photos of the meeting. Instead, Cook shared some pictures on his Twitter account.

Judging from the photos, it appears that Apple’s CEO made a personal visit to Kensington Palace to deliver some new Apple products. So much for the notion that royals are not allowed to accept freebies! We have always known this to be a convenient lie, especially considering Kate has been accepting freebies for quite some time. The only time there was any uproar about royals accepting gifts was when Meghan received some perfume. Nevertheless, it is evident that this meeting with Tim Cook was merely an Apple promotion.

Following his recent encounter with Bill Gates in New York, Prince William met with Apple CEO Tim Cook at Kensington Palace. This meeting is seen as part of William’s strategy to establish himself as a significant player on the world stage. It should be noted that the palace confirmed Kate would not be joining William on his upcoming trip to Singapore for the Earthshot Prize ceremony in November.

During the meeting, William and Kate discussed various topics with Cook, including the environment, the prize ceremony, mental health, and early childhood. Tim Cook shared on Twitter, “It was a true honor to meet with the Prince and Princess of Wales. We had a wonderful and wide-ranging discussion about the environment, mental health, and other issues that mean a great deal to all of us.”

Let’s pause for a moment and ponder what Tim Cook might have contributed to the discussion about early childhood. Did he express his views on the matter? And what did Kate have to say about it? Perhaps she simply stated that “the early years are very important,” and Cook responded with a generic agreement. Putting joking aside, it seems that William’s interest lies more in spending time in America and with Americans than in pursuing his vision of becoming a global statesman or significant player in world affairs. According to Peggington’s perspective, his global statesmanship involves accepting free iPhones from Tim Cook and being financially supported by Michael Bloomberg.
