Kate Middleton was ‘greatly trusted’ by Queen – she was ‘regarded as safe pair of hands’


Kate Middleton has become the Princess of Wales following Queen Elizabeth II passing last Thursday. Joe Little, Managing Editor of Majesty Magazine, spoke to Royally Us podcast earlier this year about the relationship the former monarch had with the Duchess of Cambridge and Cornwall and how she believed she was a “safe pair of hands” to pass the royal responsibilities onto. 

When discussing what the Queen really thought of Kate, Joe said: “It’s specualtion and conjecture, but you would think the Queen very much regarded Kate as a safe pair of hands, she’s been a member of the Royal Family for 10 years now. 

“But she was very much on the scene for quite a few years prior to that because, as well documented, Kate and William were living together, which in itself was quite revolutionary. 

“I think given all that’s gone on in the Royal Family over the past few years; the supposed fall outs, the Duke of York and the death of the Duke of Edingburgh, the Queen had great trust in Kate. 

“[It was] only a few years ago, she gave her the Royal Family Order – it’s something that’s only given to the female members of the Royal Family who have been around for quite some time and are deemed to be of great support to the Queen. So not every female member of the Royal Family has got it, but Kate has,” he added.

“I think a lot of lessons were learned from there. 

“Kate was very gradual, she appeared very occasionally, for the first few years, she was really William’s wife rather than a working member of the Royal Family. 

“She was then selective in the duties she took on and the charities she was associated with, and we now see her permforming to a very high standard with the charities that mean so much to her. 

“Kate has found her own niche within the Royal Family, she focused on things that mean a great deal to her and she feels she can give something to the charities, rather than just cover lots of charities but not in a great way,” he added.

In August 2020, an unnamed source told Us Weekly that the Queen was a mentor to Kate. 

“Her Majesty [saw] the Cambridges as the future of the monarchy and trusted Kate and William’s judgment implicitly,” the source said. 

“Kate asked for advice about speeches she was due to make, whom she can depend on most within the palace and protocol dos and don’ts. 

“The Queen was more than happy to impart her wisdom—she was proud to be Catherine’s go-to adviser about royal life,” they added. 

It is now believed that Sophie, Countess of Wessex will be a “critical sounding board” for Kate in the coming years. 

Sophie, who has been described as “loyal and trustworthy” will be a “tremendous support” to those now supporting the new monarch. 

Sophie and her husband Prince Edward have shouldered more responsibility within the Firm in recent years, particularly followingPrince Andrew’s withdrawal from public duty and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepping back from being senior working royals.
