According to People.com, the couple has a very “old-fashioned” marriage with Kate’s constant calm composure and poise helping to balance out the day-to-day stresses and intensity William’s role brings.

The source described the pair’s union as “old-fashioned” in the sense that traditionalism is a key reason why their marriage is successful. So despite a keen ultra-competitive streak, the couple still “come together as a team” at the end of the day.
