Prince William and Kate Middleton have been sharing clips from King Charles' coronation. One royal correspondent and commentator believed they were doing so to promote themselves.

Prince William And Kate Middleton Are Reportedly Selling Themselves

In a column for News.com.au, Daniela Elser shared her thoughts about the Prince and Princess of Wales' social media posts after the King's coronation. Elser called the move a "self-promoting marketing effort."

Elser wrote:

"What's crucial here is not just what the William and Kate videos show but what they don't. They are a self-promoting marketing effort that is so blatant yet effective they should be studied by science."

She added that the photos and videos were done professionally and not the ones edited on an iPhone. She even compared the videos to that of Michael Bay's works, who directed Transformers.

Elser continued:

"Aside from a few shots of His Majesty doing some waving from the Buckingham Palace balcony, he is entirely missing from the Wales' cinematic universe. This muscular Wales effort to sell, sell, sell themselves over the coronation even though it was the King's big day looks and smells suspiciously like a power play."

She added that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are already setting up their future as the next King and Queen of the United Kingdom. Thus, she deemed their move "understandable."

However, she also speculated that the Waleses are not "content to patiently wait and play docile understudies." Instead, Elser said the heir and his wife are building up their power base.
