Kate Middleton

6 Reasons why 2021 was the year of Duchess Kate taking charge


We don’t know how she does it, but year after year, Kate just keeps getting better — and 2021 was no exception.

Read on for all the ways Duchess Kate made 2021 her own.

More than ever, this is a woman who knows she’s going to be queen consort someday, and she seems totally prepared for the role. Of course, we’ve never had any doubt that she and Prince William would be ready to reign when the time comes, but the Duchess of Cambridge has really been blowing us away lately — both with her behaviour and her regal fashion choices.

From Kate’s flawless royal appearances to the way she owned the red carpet at the No Time To Die movie premiere, to how she celebrated personal milestones like her 10th wedding anniversary with William, this year really was Kate’s time to shine. If she’s already accomplishing this much, we can’t wait to see what the coming year holds for her and the rest of her little family — including Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

She Filled In for the Queen

When Queen Elizabeth’s doctors advised her against attending the Remembrance Day ceremonies this year, Kate was there, standing in her place on the balcony. It makes sense — after all, Kate will be queen consort one day, so she might as well start preparing for the role.

Playing Ref for William & Prince Harry

There was a lot of debate about whether or not the royal brothers would interact at their grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral in April, and it seems like having Kate there helped move the conversation along. Their relationship isn’t repaired yet, but so far, Kate seems to be doing her part to bring the feud closer to an end.

The Family Peacekeeper

Kate has always been known as the buffer in the family — a skill of hers that has undoubtedly come in extra handy with all the rumoured drama and infighting happening between the royals, including Harry and Meghan after their move across the pond. This will serve her well as she continues to climb the ranks.

Taking Her Responsibilities Seriously

If there’s one thing Kate has proven she understands, it’s the duty and responsibility of being royal. Instead of getting caught up in the drama, Kate is reportedly focused on the Queen’s upcoming Platinum Jubilee in 2022, and making sure all the focus is on the monarch instead.

She’s Never Said No to a Challenge

Kate is always down for anything — something she’s proven time and time again during her royal appearances — and that attitude has only persevered through 2021. Though the Queen isn’t always willing to get down and dirty the way Kate is, it just goes to show how Kate is ready to take the royals into the future.

Setting a Good Example for Public Health

When it was Kate’s turn to get her COVID-19 vaccine in the UK, not only did she step right up, but she also shared a photo of herself getting jabbed on the Cambridges’ social media account. She’s ready to set a good example when it comes to public health, just like a queen should.
