When she is at her house with her children, she usually goes with very little makeup, just enough. Although she has a hairstyle, she wears her hair in a ponytail. In addition, her clothes are usually casual: sportswear or a dress and comfortable shoes.

She is a confident mother who strives to care for her children, that they arrive on time for their school commitments, and to fulfill all of her duties as a royal. The Duchess has commitments individually and with her husband, Prince William.

HER TOP PRIORITY

One of the things that matter most to the Duchess is that her children grow up as normal as possible. Therefore, children receive their reprimand when they deserve it and are not raised with an air of grandeur. She wants her children to keep their feet on the ground and not be cocky.

Contrary to the sophisticated air that she sports when she is in public, the Duchess in private is very straightforward and she prefers comfort. She lives the life that she promotes: she cares first for the welfare of her family and then comes all the other things in her life.

NECESSARY CHANGES

When the Duchess married Prince William, pressure from her to conform to protocol and her life within royalty made her nervous. However, she is much stronger than people expected and she soon assumed her role as a royal member for sure.

After her wedding, the queen granted her grandson a couple of years off from royal duties, so that he could enjoy his first years of marriage. In the same way that she had it when she married the Duke of Edinburgh.

CLEAN IMAGE

For years the press and the curious have searched and searched the Duchess's past to try to find something secret or obscure that is not yet known about her. However, all efforts have been futile.

Her life before marrying William did not have major inconveniences or juicy scandals that the tabloid press could exploit. She was a quiet and reserved young woman, who has earned the love and loyalty of her friends because of her kindness and simplicity.
