Inside Kate and William

The Cambridges reconnected with each other and the Queen at Balmoral
Kate Middleton and Prince William spent a special time with Queen Elizabeth at her Scotland retreat, the Balmoral Castle.
A royal source told Vanity Fair the Cambridges reconnected with each other and the Queen.

“William, Kate, and the children have been enjoying some family time in Scotland and they have just spent some special time with the Queen,” the insider said.

“They always enjoy going up to Balmoral, they love the outdoors and walking in the hills and spending quality time with family. It’s where William spent a lot of his childhood and it’s important to him that his children experience what he did as a young boy,” the source added.

A second source, also a family friend, added that this last long weekend of the year has become an annual fixture for the royals.

“It has become a tradition in recent years that the Bank Holiday weekend is the final family get together before Christmas and everyone is invited,” the unnamed source said. “In the past it has turned into one big sleepover with lots of the Queen’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her Majesty enjoys it immensely.”

William is related to the name given by Wilhelm (cf. Proto-Germany * Wiljahelmaz> Germany Wilhelm and Old Norse Vilhjálmr).

With regular voice changes, the original original form of the English name must be * Wilhelm too (although the name is not really proven in the history of English, and the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle refers to William Conqueror). [4] It is a compound of two different elements: WIL = “desire or desire”; steering wheel; Old English helmet “helmet, protection”; [2] English helmet “big helmet knight”.

In fact, William’s form was clearly identified as a typical of the old Norman Williame, Willame, because first, English should have maintained (h) Elm (see General Helmet, Helmet), second,

-Aume [IAʷM] (typical French popular , see Guillaume) switch to-alone (iam] (typical of some Norman and Picard dialects)> English-miles. Historically, first there is a triphongation of -Elm (Form Gallo-Romance Your Willel) into [IAʷ] + [M] in the old Norman-France, very similar in the middle of the middle of Old [EAʷ] + [M]. Then, Triphong -eau was submitted to Monoftongasi who were localized in the second part of Tripthong áu> Āò> Ā. For example,

this development can be followed in various versions of names in Roman De Rou Wace. [5] Or in the form of a Cauchois variant of common words such as Osias (plural of OSè “Birds”, Older Oisel) / Regular Norman Oisius “Bird” (Sing France. Oiseau, PL. Oiseaux).

Spelling and phonetics Wi-[WI] is the characteristic nature of the northern French dialect, but pronunciation changes in Norman from [WI] to [VI] in the 12th century (cf. Norman Surname Villon and Villamax “), in contrast to Norman France and South Central who converts Germanic Wi-[GWI]> [GI]. Modern French spelling is Guillaume. [6]

The famous first name was a cousin of Charlemagne William from Gellone, A.K.A. Guilhem, William of Orange, Guillaume Fierabrace, or William Short-Nose (755-812). William was immortalized at Chanson de Guillume and the price of him could explain the name of the next popularity among European nobles.
