Princess Kate and Prince William. Why would they stay in Scotland?

In Scotland, local parliament elections were held on May 6. It was won by the Scottish National Party (SNP). London fears it is “losing Scotland”. The current head of the Scottish government, Nicola Sturgeon, has announced that a referendum on independence will be held in the second half of the newly elected parliament’s term. An independence referendum would enable Scotland to secede from Great Britain. However, such a referendum must be approved by the British government. Boris Johnson’s administration is working hard to prevent the Scots from withdrawing from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Scotland has been associated with Great Britain by a personal union (governor general) since 1707. However, separatist sentiments in Scotland are growing. In the independence referendum held in 2014, only 55 per cent of residents chose to remain in the UK.
