Kate Middleton: Duchess of Cambridge more ‘conservative’ in Royal Family


Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is a senior member of the Royal Family. Since marrying Prince William, she has become a popular royal in her own right. How has she changed in the family?

“She has perhaps become less ‘old fashioned’ and more modern and elegant.”

Kate has chosen more modern looks and shown her thrifty side by wearing some outfits more than once.

“She has also moved from ‘country labels’ to fashion forward brands like Roksanda Ilincic,” Milda added.

“What I respect about Kate is that she doesn’t mind wearing things twice and she also teams high street with designer.

DON’T MISS

“She still has a love of Zara and makes things, like the £9.99 skirt she wore to Bradford last month, look like they might have cost £900.”

As Kate often appears confident in her style choices some royal enthusiasts may be shocked to realise her she has become more conservative.

The expert explained: “Before her engagement to William she wore a lot of tweed, specifically tweed suits.

“There is a famous photo of her seated outside Blenheim Palace in a tweed skirt and matching jacket.

“This is probably because even if she is buying from the high street she is more than likely having things tailored so they fit for her.

“It isn’t just about what she is choosing or the type of clothing, you can see a natural confidence within Kate and passion for what she is doing.

“Therefore her outfit choices are more confident and she is wearing them better.”

While Kate’s clothing has changed, how she carries out royal duties also seems to have been positively impacted.

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.

Education

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.

Wedding

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 become the Duchess of Cambridge on the day.
