KEY POINTS

  • Kate Middleton has kept calm and continued working hard amidst the controversies that the royal family faced lately
  • The Duchess of Cambridge, reportedly, helped Prince William gain self-confidence
  • Kate Middleton is, allegedly, suffering secretly behind all the mandatory smiles she displayed during public engagements

There is no denying that Kate Middleton is considered as one of the most popular senior members of the royal family. Aside from Princess Diana and Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Cambridge also had her fair share of challenges being the wife of an heir to the throne. Despite all the predicaments she has been facing since tying the knot with Prince William, the mother of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis has remained strong and resilient.

Recently, You Magazine reported that Kate has become a pillar of strength for the royal family amidst the alleged involvement of Prince Andrew in the Jeffrey Epstein scandal, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s shocking royal exit. The South Africa-based publication shared that Kate Middleton has remained calm and showed kindness and compassion while everything around her seems to fall apart.

Kate, reportedly, has been very busy since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their decision to step down from being senior royals and stay away from the limelight to live a private life in North America. The mom of three even helped Prince William host his first solo state occasion with African leaders at the Buckingham Palace. Kate even joined her better half at the recently concluded British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards ceremony in London.

“It seems right now Kate can do no wrong. She’s been credited with helping her husband gain a newfound confidence as he shoulders more royal responsibility,” Jane Vorster wrote in her report. “Naturally shy, William has sometimes struggled to embrace the public aspects of his role, but having Kate at his side seems to help,” she went on.

However, Woman’s Day New Zealand claimed that Kate Middleton has been feeling so much pressure after the controversial “Megxit," which rocked the entire monarchy. The entertainment news outlet stated that Kate has been “secretly suffering” behind those mandatory smiles. Insiders even claimed that the cracks are starting to become more visible as the increased stress takes its toll on the hardworking duchess.

“She’s in a panic and has been having bouts of anxiety. She barely has time to rest and when she does try to sleep, her mind is constantly racing,” a source told the magazine. “She’s already stretched pretty thin and now she’s really worried about how she’ll juggle the extra workload on top of her family life,” it continued. The same source stated Kate Middleton has been worried that her increased workload will take her away from her kids.

Kate Middleton has yet to comment on these reports.
