Moments That Showed What Kind of Queen Kate Middleton Will Be


Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, has enamored the world with her grace, beauty and fashion since she and Prince William became engaged to be married.

She has been considered to be a prominent member of the royal family. In fact, in 2012, Time Magazine included the Duchess of Cambridge in their “Time 100” list that highlights the world’s most influential people.

With her husband second in line for the throne, she may have the opportunity to apply her grace and class as Queen of the United Kingdom someday.

Since today is her birthday, we just wanted to take some time to reflect on past moments that show exactly what kind of queen she will be.

Her Selfless Works for Countless Charities:

In summer 2017, Kate shocked people across the world with a new, chic haircut. Noticeably shorter than before, people wondered if there was more reason behind the fashionable decision.

Later, in January 2018, a royal source revealed that the Duchess of Cambridge had, in fact, donated her long locks to a children’s charity called Little Princess Trust: a charity that provides high-quality wigs made of real hair to children going through chemotherapy and other radiation treatments.

Kate shared her idea to donate her hair with her hairdresser who agreed and helped her make the donation anonymous.

This small donation shows that Kate is humble about her generous heart.

When She Stopped Everything To Help a Sick Child:

On Jan. 16, 2018, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the city of Coventry, located just over 100 miles northwest of London. Hundreds of schoolchildren excitedly gathered in hopes of getting a glimpse of the royal couple.

As Kate passed one small boy in particular, her motherly instincts kicked in when she saw that his face was rather pale; the cold and excitement of the day had affected him.

She stopped and asked the 10-year-old student from Corpus Christi primary school if he was okay. After speaking with him for a few moments, the Duchess asked one of her bodyguards to bring a paper bag to the little boy just in case he got sick.

“It was lovely of her,” said Carole Flynn, a learning mentor from the primary school. “She really took time with him. You can tell she is a mom and has got that caring side.”

This sweet moment can maybe be best summed up by 9-year-old Mia Ramin who also saw the Duke and Duchess that day.

“They didn’t seem like people who are too busy for other people,” Mia said. “She seemed really nice.”

Her Honesty About Motherhood and Mental Health:

The world has watched as the Duchess of Cambridge gracefully loves her three young children from the beginning and, somehow, seems to do so with such elegance and poise.

It’s hard to imagine that Kate could ever struggle with parenting woes like the rest of us, but in fact, she admitted that she felt the common challenges of motherhood in March 2017.

In a speech introducing a Best Beginnings’ “Out of the Blue” series, a series that hoped to reduce the stigma around mental health that come with parenthood, Kate said that motherhood “is full of complex emotions of joy, exhaustion, love and worry, all mixed together.”

Even though Kate recognized that she has more resources and support than most women, she still experienced a “lack of confidence” and “feelings of ignorance” while learning how to take care of her two children at the time.

She then encouraged struggling parents to reach out for help and emphasized that asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness, but instead is “a real sign of strength.”

Her involvement with Best Beginnings and her vulnerable speech in 2017 shows how she cares for the mental health of fellow parents and isn’t afraid of sharing her own story in order to empower them to ask for the help they need.

As if these moments weren’t enough to show that Kate will make an amazing Queen someday, here are just a few more reasons we all adore the Duchess of Cambridge.
