The Duchess of Cambridge is taking a stand to stop the “vicious and unhelpful” use of pet bowls and cat furniture in her home, according to a statement from her official press secretary.
The Duchess of Sussex’s official spokesperson, Liz Jones, told BBC News the Duchess of Cornwall has been taking a hard look at what she considers to be a “virus ridden” home environment.
“We know that there are pets in this home, but we are not aware of any complaints of pet food bowls or cat furniture,” she said.
“There are certainly some things that should not be in this house and we know that some of them can be detrimental to our cats and our dogs.”
However, we also know that the Duchess has a large family, so it’s important that we try and make sure that every single household in this family is happy with the way things are.
“The Duchess has been using an “old-fashioned” method of cleaning and feeding her four dogs, with a cleaning brush and a cloth she says helps her take care of the animals.”
I am using a brush and then I have a cloth and then we clean it and feed it, then put it on the bed and it’s very clean, very tidy,” she explained.”
The carpet is also very clean and very neat, and it is very easy to clean.
“In a way, it makes it a little bit easier to look after, because I am taking the time to get it right, so there is no pressure on the dogs to be perfect.”
The use of cat furniture and bowls has also been a controversial issue for some in the press corps.
The Daily Mail reported that a pet-food bowl on a sofa was the “biggest complaint” from a woman in a press scrum outside the Palace of Westminster, with the Duchess saying: “I think I’ve been treated like a child.”
The Duke of Cambridge was accused of using a “lame” bowl after she used one to clean her dogs and a second to feed her four cats.
A spokesperson for the Palace said the Duchess was not in the habit of using bowls and cats.
“It’s a common problem for a Duchess, but the Duchess is using a simple cleaner and food and does not use the bowl.
The issue was also raised in the UK, with animal rights group PETA claiming the Duchess “has used a pet bowl to clean up after her dogs, cats and the garden.””
If a woman has any concerns about the Duchess’s behaviour, they should speak to the Duchess directly.”
The issue was also raised in the UK, with animal rights group PETA claiming the Duchess “has used a pet bowl to clean up after her dogs, cats and the garden.”
They’ve also used a bowl to give her her daily meal, and to clean the gardens,” the group said.PETA’s general manager for the UK Jenny Packer said: “It’s time for the Duchess to get on with the job of cleaning her home.
“A lot of these complaints are about her using a bowl in a bowl, not a bowl as a pet, but rather as a bowl for cleaning up.”
A spokesman for the Prince of Wales said the Duke had been “absolutely clean and tidy” since she arrived in the Palace in November.
“He is delighted that he is staying in the palace, and has a lovely family with whom he shares the joys of living in his private garden,” he said.
