In over a decade as a senior royal, Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, has transformed herself from a college sweetheart of the crown Prince to a princess ready to sit on the throne.


Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is quickly hitting the ground as a senior royal, with high expectations of her after a slow start to life in the palace.

For the early stages of her romance with the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, the Duchess was said not to have left the Queen impressed as one fit to be her tag.

In over a decade in the palace, the Duchess has geared up to the challenge of being Prince William's future queen and looks comfortable in her skin.

Part of being comfortable in her skin includes living like a simple mom who goes about her mom duty without much glamour or protocol.


A source close to the Duchess revealed that she keeps a low maintenance routine in her daily life. She is either in her gym clothes or rocking a dress and sneakers, looking like every other mom.

She carries the energy of a mom with three kids and holds the attitude of a normal parent with a job, although a different kind of job.

The mother of three recalled being confused on what would be a befitting present for the British monarch.


With Prince Harry and Meghan Markle out of the picture, Duchess Kate has risen quickly and changed the narrative about herself. From a quiet, low-key royal to a mom and a senior royal capable of the task ahead.

The mother of three has quickly spread her wings in areas like early childhood education and mental health awareness, showing she has what it takes to continue the royal line of influence.


During the early stages of the pandemic, the royal family dealt with internal situations such as Prince Harry's exit as a senior member, Prince Charles' COVID-19 diagnosis, and the Queen being shipped away to Windsor Castle as a precaution.

It was at that moment that Prince William and the Duchess stood up for a country in need. The couple experienced an increase in their social media following as fans began to find their pages more entertaining and exciting.


The Duchess had found her way to their hearts. The Duchess also carries the task of homeschooling her children and catering to the needs of the public. A friend of Middleton noted that the Duchess is no pushover and is confident as a mom.

According to reports, the Duchess is keen on ensuring that her children enjoy a normal childhood outside the pressure of the spotlight that might deny them the thrills of childhood.


The Duchess adds spice to the royal family with her simple way of life, an attribute that makes the royal family seem closer to the people. According to reports, the Queen is most impressed by that.

Just like everyone, the Duchess was once in the dark about what to gift the Queen on her first Christmas as a senior royal. The mother of three recalled being confused on what would be a befitting present for the British monarch.

Thinking of going old fashion, the Duchess decided to make her granny's chutney recipes, which surprisingly became a hit.

Fans of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be on the lookout for bonding moments with the royals that seem to have found a way to connect with them.
