KATE, Duchess of Cambridge, has been hailed “Queen of people’s hearts” for her charitable work and hands-on personality.
Kate will likely have to wait for a couple more decades before becoming Queen consort. But royal fans can’t wait to see Kate’s coronation taking place when Prince William becomes the King of the country. And one claimed the Duchess of Cambridge has already won the nation with her smile, personality and work done since 2011, when she married the second-in-line to the throne. One Instagram user wrote under a picture of the royal couple published a few hours ago: “Kate is the Queen of people’s hearts”.
Kensington Palace has published on the social media platform a series of snaps depicting the eight skippers taking part in the charity regatta next week.
The first photograph shown represents Prince William and a waving and smiling Kate in Cutty Sark.
The pair visited London’s iconic neighborhood in May to unveil this year’s King’s Cup, for which eight teams will sail next Friday.
Every boat will represent one charity supported by Kate and William this year in a bid to shed a light on these organisations’ work, and today Kensington Palace has revealed who the ambassador of each charity will be.
Kensington Palace wrote on Instagram: “Just one week to go until The King’s Cup.

This historic trophy has been linked to the Royal Family for decades, as it was first presented by King George V at Cowes’ Royal Yacht Squadron in 1920.
The statement continued: “Their Royal Highnesses hope that The King’s Cup will become an annual event, bringing greater awareness to the wider benefits of sport, whilst also raising support and funds for the causes that The Duke and Duchess support.”
Other snaps shared by the royals to promote the charity regatta shows the ambassadors of each charity, including Prince Harry speaking to a young girl at Child Bereavement organisation.
But the picture that seems to have struck the most royal fans is the third one, showing Kate playing with a toddler as she smiles wide.
One Instagram user commented: “Such a natural smile Kate has.

“Can’t wait for her to be Queen!”
Another wrote: “She’ll make a wonderful Queen one day.”
And another added: “The third picture is simply enchanting. Who clearly adores squishy babies?!?”
A fourth said: “This is a fantastic initiative but I just have to say how much I admire the Duchess.

This regatta, taking place in Cowes, won’t mark the first time Kate and Williams have competed against each other.
The Duchess has already beaten her husband during the America’s Cup yachts in Auckland, New Zealand in 2014, the last time they went head-to-head.
And many royal fans seem to be rooting for her, with one writing: “Wonderful event! So many great charities being represented. Rooting for the Duchess!”
