Kate changed Prince William’s mindset about being future king – impressing the Queen

KATE has changed Prince William’s mindset about one day becoming king, according to a royal expert.

The Duchess of Cambridge has helped her “daunted” husband feel “more positive” about his future role, royal author Katie Nicholl claimed. She added that Kate has shown she has the “qualities to be a good queen”.

Ms Nicholl also said the monarch was happy for her grandson to marry for love – as the couple prepare to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary this year.

The royal expert told OK! magazine: “I don’t think Kate’s background was ever an issue for the Queen.

“The only thing she would have cared about is Kate had the qualities to be a good queen.

“And from early on as a royal, she has shown that.

“She never complains, she’s devoted to her duties and she’s a fantastic partner for William.

“She makes William happy and she’s made him feel more positive about his future as a king – something he was previously daunted by.”

Ms Nicholl also told how the Queen has welcomed all of the Middleton family into the royal fold.

She said: “The Queen knew how close not only Kate but William was to the Middletons and how important it was to keep them close, make them feel included.

“Kate’s parents, Carole and Michael, have been invited to the monarch’s carriage parade at Ascot and they and sister Pippa joined the Thames boat pageant for the Diamond Jubilee.

“Those moments will have been carefully thought out to show how welcome the Middletons are.

“It will have meant so much to Kate and William.”

William and Kate tied the knot a decade ago in a spectacular ceremony.

The pair met when they were students at the University of St Andrews.

Kate is said to have caught William’s eye when she walked down the catwalk in a see-through dress at a charity fashion show in 2002.

They announced their engagement in November 2010.

Westminster Abbey was filled with 2,000 guests to see the future king marry Kate less than six months later.

The bride wore a lace gown designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, while the groom was dressed in the red tunic of the Irish Guards.

Nearly 25 million people in the UK watched the live televised ceremony, with the worldwide TV audience estimated to be two billion.

One million people lined the procession route as the newlyweds took an open-topped carriage from the abbey to Buckingham Palace after the service.

William and Kate are now parents to Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and two-year-old Prince Louis.
