Do you think kate relishes her public role? By that I mean do you reckon she enjoys her engagements and charity work or is she simply just doing what is expected of her?

I think that a first she was just going with the flow and as she put it just trying to support William. I don’t think she was necessarily dispassionate about the work, but it was a huge change. She was basically working in an office and then became a public figure overnight. For example, if cameras were to follow me at work, they’d find me with my feet up on the dashboard of my car right now. That would be a massive change. I think she came across nervous about saying the wrong thing or stepping in the wrong place.

Since she chose her patronages, I think that has really changed. Those were her choices and you can see that in engagements like hospices and the art room. I can’t say whether or not she enjoys the process of being filmed and photographed on engagements but I do believe that she’s got a passion for the causes and really wants to help. From all the quotes I’ve read, she always does her homework and shows genuine interest. Speaking from experience, the more I’m interested in something at work, the more reading I do on it.

I see George as a real turning point. There’s more of an authoritative air about her and as much as I love WK engagements, I think her solo ones really give her a chance to shine. So I am looking forward to Malta.

That was an unnecessarily long answer but to sum up, I don’t think anyone will ever know if she’s really enjoying it, but if she’s not, she certainly gives the impression she is, and that’s the important thing when royalty meets the public.

That clutch looks bigger than I thought…I always thought it’d be too small to hold much so I figured Kate must’ve used an Emmy clutch today.
