Kate Middleton has ‘ruthless survival streak’ which makes her ‘well suited’ for royal life


KATE MIDDLETON has “ruthless survival streak” which makes her “well suited” for life as a members of the Royal Family, according to sources.

A source told Tatler magazine last year: “In the palace, you hear numerous stories of the staff saying so-and-so is a nightmare and behaves badly but you never hear that about Kate.

“It’s why she is so well suited. She keeps her head down because the prize of being Queen is so great.

“She models herself on the Queen and now speaks like the Queen.”

Last month, the Cambridges celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary.

Ms Junor told the Times: “She has got such poise and elegance and she’s not in competition with William.

“She doesn’t seem to be seeking fame. Everything about her is measured.

“She’s a grown-up. She seems to care a lot about everything she’s put her name to.”

Kate and William met while studying at St. Andrew’s University in Scotland between 2001 and 2005.

In 2007, the couple took a break from each other for a few months.

Later in 2010, when the couple announced their engagement in an interview, William said: “We were both very young, it was at university.

“We were both finding ourselves as such and being different characters and stuff.

“It was very much trying to find our own way and we were growing up, it was a bit of space and a bit of things like that and it worked out for the better.”

Since their royal wedding, the Cambridges had three children together – Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three.
