Kate Middleton snub: Body language shows job as mother ‘dominant’ over royal role

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have three children together, Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two.

In the past, Kate has spoken out on parenting and her family life.

Being a mother seems to take priority over her royal role, the expert suggested.

Kate may also be focused on taking a more traditional approach to her role in the Royal Family.


Judi continued: “Her roles as wife and mother seem dominant, unlike some of the royal women who excel in other careers.

“I’d imagine her focusing on the very traditional path of charity work but without any of the staunch campaigning or ground-breaking and often controversial paths taken before her.

“The royals have been in one crisis or another for two generations now and Kate should be the ideal influencer for calm and stability again.”

If Kate gets the title of Queen Consort, she will have the same social rank and status and the monarch.

“Her styling and her body language are impeccable and – in a world where royals, like celebrities, are chopped down to size on a regular basis – she appears able to avoid anything other than petty criticism.

“We see very little if any displays of emotions other than positive ones from her in public.

“With their touch rituals at a minimum, we are shown little if any glimpses into her relationship with William other than the happy, positive and loving traits.”

How did Kate Middleton become a royal?

Early life

Kate Middleton, or Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was born on 9 January 1982 at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading, England.

She was born to Michael and Carole Middleton, a former flight dispatcher and air hostess. The couple founded a party supplies company, Party Pieces, in 1987 – now estimated to be worth £30 million.

Kate has a younger sister Pippa Matthews, 34, and a younger brother James Middleton, 31.


Kate and her family moved to Amman, Jordan, in 1984, where the future Duchess was educated at an English-speaking nursery school.

After moving back to Berkshire the family sent Kate to private school, St Andrews School. She went on to briefly study at Downe House before moving onto Marlborough College where she boarded.

For university the young Kate attended the University of St Andrews in Fife, Scotland. Here she was awarded an undergraduate MA (2:1 Hons) in history of art.

Relationship with Prince William

Kate met Prince William when they were both studying at St Andrews, and both living in St Salvator’s Hall. Famously, William reportedly took a fancy to Kate after she wore a see-through dress during a fashion show.

In 2003 the couple began dating and lived together during their second year of university.

The couple split in April 2007, however, in October they were back together.


Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his late mother Princess Diana’s engagement ring in October 2010. The couple were holidaying in Kenya at the time.

On 29 April 2011 they married at Westminster Abbey with a whopping 26 million watching the event live.

Kate wore an Alexander McQueen dress worth a reported £250,000 on the big day.

Kate assumed the title “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge” and also became the Duchess of Cambridge on the day.
