Once again, Kate Middleton is proving to be a real asset to the monarchy. While speculation continues as to whether Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did inform Queen Elizabeth II of their decision to name their daughter Lilibet, according to The Mirror, it was actually Kate Middleton who found out before anyone else, through the Duke of Sussex. The latter then reportedly revealed the information to the crown.
A family diplomat
This news confirms the relationship of trust between Harry and his sister-in-law, at a time when the monarchy is fraught with tensions. A quasi-indispensable link for a Firm shaken by the Megxit and the latest Sussex confidences.
Like Prince Philip, Kate Middleton has become, over the months, the monarchy's secret weapon, playing the role of mediator and pacifist among her own people. The future queen and her husband have taken on their new responsibilities after the death of the Duke of Edinburgh and the departure of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from the British royal family.
Kate Middleton: becoming essential
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's move to the US after the Megxit, as well as Prince Philip's passing has worried many. The reason? Most wondered how the crown would now honour their many public commitments. But that was without the precious help of the Cambridges.
Indeed, since the beginning of 2021, Kate Middleton and Prince William have carried out no less than 174 missions, 81 more than in 2019,back when life was not disrupted by the health crisis. In addition, Kate Middleton is perfectly honouring the military patronage handed down by Prince Philip in 2015. An important role for the young woman, who intends to prepare herself as best she can for the throne.
