Kate Middleton Status In The Royal Family More Important Than You Think, Kisses Queen On The Cheek Before Curtsying
There have been several allegations of Kate Middleton’s status in the royal family. As the wife of the third-in-line to the British throne, there has been great pressure put on the Duchess of Cambridge’s shoulder.
She has also been under the microscope since she started dating Prince William almost over 15 years ago.
The unfortunate happening between Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana was a learning curve for the royal family to better treat outsiders. Such was what happened with Kate Middleton.
In a recent engagement of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate Middleton attended the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, which Kate Middleton helped with.
The Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth, dropped by during the show's opening and was shown around personally by her grandson Prince William and Kate Middleton.
During her visit to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, it was noted that Kate Middleton kissed the Queen on the cheek before she curtsied.
This action somehow caught the press's attention since it was such an informal way of greeting the Queen of England and only shows how well respected and welcomed Kate Middleton is in the royal folds.
It is not a shock that royal members kiss the Queen on her cheeks but to do it first and then curtsy after is quite unheard of.
This truly was a signal that Queen Elizabeth has given a major blessings to Kate Middleton, who will become the Queen Consort one day when Prince William takes to the throne.
Queen Elizabeth was also seemingly very entertained with Kate and William’s personal tour during the show, especially when they arrived at the garden Kate helped create.
In the past few weeks, Prince William and Kate Middleton have also taken over several of the Queen’s engagements, a sign that the Queen is confident of the pair’s ability to lead.
The reigning sovereign is slowly easing back into her work life as it was for several months that the Queen and her husband, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, were out of the palace.
The pandemic has given the pair a substantial time to be together as it has been reported that Prince Philip and the Queen have been living apart from each other since the Duke of Edinburgh’s retirement.
Kate Middleton and Prince William are swamped with engagements after taking over numerous patronages since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s exit from the royal firm.
