A lot of people are now commending Kate Middleton for the royal that she has become despite the struggles she has been through. Just like Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, was often a subject of criticisms when she joined the royal family in 2011. However, Prince William’s wife continuously proves herself — thanks to the critical skill she learned from her husband and the late Princess Diana that helped her settle in the royal family.
Kate Middleton didn’t settle into the royal family right away after her marriage with Prince William in 2011. A long-standing acquaintance revealed that there were occasions in the past that made the mother-of-three “uncomfortable and self-conscious,” per Express.
She would often second-guess everything she did, but she would eventually realize that she was not the problem. Kate Middleton believed that if she didn’t take herself seriously, then, who would ever be.
Fortunately, by talking to Prince William about Prince Diana, Kate Middleton learned that if she is “at ease, then it would rub off on the people she meets.” “And the best way to be at ease is to just be yourself,” the future Queen Consort was advised.
It looks like Kate Middleton has been following this tip, especially when she visited Pakistan with her husband last month. She was commended for her elegance and warmth, which incited comparisons with Princess Diana.
A source told The Sun, that Kate Middleton, who was full of self-doubt back in the days, is now a “force to be reckoned with.” The fact that even the royal insiders are positively comparing her to Princess Diana only proves that she has come a long way.
Kate Middleton is also considered a breath of fresh air amidst the controversies surrounding Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, and Prince Andrew. Political author and University of Buckingham vice-chancellor Anthony Seldon even praised the future monarch for her “magical talent.’
He said that Kate Middleton has a rare ability to talk and relate to people of different ages, backgrounds, and ethnicities. He considered her skill as a magical talent that only a few individuals possess.
The palace insiders also believed that Kate Middleton’s secret to success is that she works quietly and without fuss. She is even well-liked by the royal staff and other members of the royal family. Queen Elizabeth II herself is also fond of her granddaughter-in-law, as she sees how Kate manage to juggle her time as a mother and a duchess.
