Kate Middleton's love for Prince William for himself, rather than his title, impressed Queen Elizabeth II.

Kate has cemented her position as the royal who announced her candidature for the job and hasn't made a mistake since.

She decided to devote herself to the role for ten years before William married her.

The couple had to mourn the queen's death, and their presence at her funeral sent a strong message about dynasty and succession.

Kate has accepted her responsibilities and is part of a supportive team.

She is most likely a Princess of Wales who does not detract from her prince but rather forms a unit with him.

Kate occasionally shares a relatable anecdote about parenting and her children.

As a senior royal, one of her favourite causes is early childhood development.

She wears a tiara but also re-wears many of her clothes, including her gowns.
