Kate using Prince George, Charlotte and Louis in clever ploy to give fans what they want

788

KATE, THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE, has used her children in a clever ploy to give the public what they want, it has been claimed.

The source said: “For years, the battles around privacy and paparazzi intrusion were all-consuming.

“William wanted to know, could we build them a credible plan allowing them a family life while slowly increasing the profile of official life?

“It took years to get there, but the success of that plan allowed him to be confident and content in his role.

“He’s not worried about his kids’ privacy any more and he has been able to be the kind of dad he wants to be.”

Elsewhere in her piece in the Times, Ms Nikkhah revealed the Duke of Cambridge was not ready to dedicate to royal duties but he is now in a different position.

According to Ms Nikkhah, William’s attitude towards the media has changed and he “understands” the power it has.

But the expert said Kate’s “groundedness” has been the “critical anchor”.

She quoted a friend of the Duke as saying: “Marriage maketh the man.

And Ms Nikkhah said Kate played a key role in increasing their children’s public appearances.

Ms Nikkhah said: “The children’s birthdays are marked with photographs — often taken by the Duchess of Cambridge — and there has been a noticeable increase in their public appearances of late.

“While not ‘officially’ staged, William was happy to let George and Charlotte be photographed at their first Aston Villa match with Mum and Dad in 2019.

“Pandemic set pieces have shown the family clapping for the NHS on the steps of Anmer Hall, their Norfolk home, and, before Christmas, their first red-carpet appearance together for an evening at the panto with key workers and their children.”

Another friend to the Cambridges said the couple have a “solid relationship” and Kate gives William “confidence”.

One said: “They’ve got a solid relationship and she gives him confidence.

“There is no jealousy, no friction, they are happy for each other’s successes.”

Ms Nikkhah also said William takes “pride” in Kate’s “growing confidence on the public stage”.

“Catherine’s groundedness has been the critical anchor.

“And where his relationship with the media was once all fury and frustration, he now understands using the power of modern media, so the public feel they’re getting enough access.”

This comes following Meghan Markle and Harry’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey where they made several bombshell accusations about their time in the Firm.

William has been the only member of the Firm to respond in person to racism allegations and reassured the public the Royal Family “is not racist”.
