Kate Middleton - Divine Duchess

A lesser woman trying to juggle the challenges of being a royal and a mother of three would wilt in the face of infidelity rumors. But it’s all in a day’s work for Kate

Kate Middleton is showing her true colors, and they’re fabulous. She and William, in one of their first appearances as a family since Louis’ birth 14 months ago, looked relaxed in parenting mode at Trooping the Colour, the queen’s annual birthday parade. As they waved from the balcony with their three little ones, Kate noticed baby Louis sucking his thumb and gently intervened before returning her attention to the lively procession.

It was a sweet moment, and palace insiders tell us that these days, it’s completely in character for the Duchess of Cambridge, who balances motherhood, marriage and royal engagements with ease and grace. Behind the scenes, however, sources say it’s not quite as easy as it looks. “Kate still finds these huge public events overwhelming,” a palace insider confides. “She’s always been naturally shy — truth be told, she envies sister-in-law Meghan’s ease in front of crowds — but she impresses everyone with her ability to paste a huge smile on her face. She knows she has a responsibility to be front and center, given that one day these events will be in honor of her husband. It’s something she’ll have to work at for the rest of her life.”
