When Kate Middleton married Prince William in 2011, not only did she become his wife, but also future Queen.
While it might be far into the future, the Duchess is already training for her future role and has earned impressive Queen-in-waiting credentials.
Speaking on the show True Royalty’s Kate: The Making of a Future Queen, royal expert Katie Nicholl explained there are two main roles Kate will face as Queen.
“One is to produce heirs, which she has done,” Katie said, “and the other is to learn how to one day be Queen and that is very much what we are seeing.”
Since the nation went into lockdown in March, everyone – including the Royals – were forced to self-isolate.
The Queen spent that time at Windsor Castle out of the public eye, while Kate stepped into the spotlight, with her and Will regularly appearing in Zoom calls from their Norfolk home.
Kate has been taking on more royal duties of late, including an increase in public appearances post lockdown.
Kate has become a beacon of hope throughout the pandemic, time and again she made time to send video messages to the nation with words of support.
