8 Times Kate Middleton Proved She’s a Queen in the Making
1. The duchess shared the most personal aspects of her life with the public, including the birth of her children
One significant sacrifice that comes with being a royal is privacy.
As the future queen consort, the Duchess of Cambridge allows the public to share intimate moments and milestones that most people would usually reserve for family.
For example, Kate Middleton posed for photographers on the Lindo Wing steps just hours after giving birth to Prince George in 2013, Princess Charlotte in 2015, and Prince Louis in 2018.
She spoke about the experience on the “Happy Mum, Happy Baby” podcast last year, describing the first photo call with baby George as “slightly terrifying.”
“Everyone had been so supportive,” the duchess said, “and both William and I were conscious that this was something that everyone was excited about, and we are hugely grateful for the support that the public has shown us, and actually for us to share that joy and appreciation with the public was equally important.”
