Aside from cute outfits and adoring fans, taking up the role of a royal comes with a lot of stuffy protocol and some strict rules and regulations.
For the uninitiated, the rules and 24/7 surveillance would be suffocating, and perhaps incredibly lonely.
If Princess Diana’s legacy taught us anything, it’s that royal life equals restriction. So, when Kate Middleton, a verified commoner, was engaged to Prince William, she was truly right to have her hesitations.
Katie Nicholl, a royal expert said on the new documentary:-
“Once you are married into the family, you became a Windsor and that was that. “However, it was different when Kate and William got married”.

“When Prince William asked her to marry him, he made it very clear that she wouldn’t have to leave her family behind her once she marries into his family”.

That was the most important thing for the Duchess of Cambridge.
That meant Kate’s family, including Pippa, James and parents Carole and Michael, were welcome to all kinds of royal events.
“The Duke of Cambridge, William promised her that they’d always stay a part of the family and they have done”.
“Whether it’s joining Her Majesty at Ascot or being on an important barge within Queen Elizabeth’s fleet at the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, they’ve been there”.
The Middletons’ relationship with the Windsors has positively flourished over the years.
They’ve attended Sandringham for Christmas. In fact, Harry and Meghan were invited to Pippa’s wedding to James Matthews.
It must be such a relief for Kate, to have her family be with her. It’s pure speculation, but hearing about the shock Diana endured when she entered into royal life may have played a part in William’s decision.
