Kate Middleton takes on increasingly high-profile role from Queen Elizabeth.


The Queen and Kate were spotted attending church together at Balmoral recently. And, Kate was seen wearing earrings from the Queen’s personal jewellery.

 Her Majesty is taking the Duchess of Cambridge under her wing. 

And, she is doing it not just loaning her jewellery but also by preparing her for the day she becomes Queen Consort. 

According to Mr Shaw, a royal expert:-

“There’s no training course to become the Queen of England. But obviously, Her Majesty has years of experience that she can share”.

Kate is married to Prince William, who is second in line to the British throne. Their three children, George, Charlotte and Louis, are the third, fourth and fifth in line, respectively.

The family is spending their last days of summer at Queen Elizabeth’s Balmoral Castle in Scotland. There the kids are slowly being introduced to the traditions of royal life.

Mr Shaw added:-

“Prince George has been on his first grouse shoot with his cousin Savannah Phillips. Charlotte’s been learning to ride”.

Kate Middleton, who is on maternity leave with Prince Louis, has taken on an increasingly high-profile role. She was the brainchild behind Heads Together, the groundbreaking mental health campaign she launched in 2016 with William and Harry.

Prince William said in a speech last year:-

“It was my wife, Catherine who first realised that all three of us were working on mental health in our individual areas of focus. She had seen that at the core of adult issues”.

“Issues like addiction and family breakdown, unresolved childhood and all these mental health issues were often part of the problem”.

Kate and William are also increasingly stepping in for Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip at official events.

The Duchess of Cambridge has everything it takes to be the perfect Queen Consort. What we do know about her is that she prepares a huge deal before she goes out for her engagements.

And according to some reports, she’s been keeping tabs on her charities even while on maternity leave. Kate, who gave birth to Prince Louis in April, will end her maternity leave this fall. 

Her return will be to pioneer work in the mental health arena and support for her other charitable interests. She is expected to take a prominent place at the Dutch state dinner hosted by the Queen in October, as a senior member of the royal family.
