Royal pupil: Kate being groomed for her future role at request of Prince William


Kate is being nurtured for her future roles by members of the family on the workings of Britain’s national institutions.

Nearly 10 years after her marriage, Kate is being gradually introduced to her future role as the Queen and consort.

In marked contrast to the experience of Diana, Princess of Wales, who complained of being thrown into a life of royal duty with no advice at all, the Duchess of Cambridge is being given a series of private briefings by the Queen and other staff.

Prince William’s late mother told friends that no thought had been given to her future role when she married Prince Charles and that Palace staff “basically thought I could adapt to being Princess of Wales overnight”.

While announcing his engagement in November 2010, the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William insisted that Kate would be given support as she would gradually be introduced to the unique demands placed on members of the royal family.

A royal source told the Daily Telegraph: “The Duchess is being briefed on how the State works, getting to know our national institutions better and learning more about the arts, the media and the government. “It is a process that will carry on for several months but is being done privately.

During the couple’s first interview together (also in 2010), William said one of the main reasons why he waited seven years before proposing was out of a desire “to learn lessons from the past”.

It was a clear indication that Prince William was determined that his going to be wife, Kate, should not feel isolated, in the way that his mother was. The Queen has made many efforts too to make sure the monarchy is in safe hands in the future.
