When Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was growing up in a typical family of five, there is no way she could have predicted the amazing twists and turns that her future would take. Kate was what is known as a “commoner,” coming from a family that has no ties to royalty, and chances are, she only imagined herself admiring Prince William from afar and looking at the royal palaces and castles from the outside, just like the rest of us.
However, when Kate went off to college at the University of Saint Andrews in Scotland, she caught the eye of Britain’s future king after walking in a charity fashion show wearing a now-iconic sheer dress. Although Kate was dating someone else when she first met Prince William, his persistence definitely paid off.
The two of them began a years-long relationship before finally getting married in 2011, officially making her the Duchess of Cambridge and also the future queen consort. There is no doubt that she is the perfect addition to the royal family, so let’s talk about how Kate has floored Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip with this 1 trait.
Some background on Kate
Kate is the oldest of three children and spent most of her life in The Village of Bucklebury in Berkshire, England. It is well-known that she has a love for sports and outdoor activities, something that she and Prince William have bonded over.
During the course of their relationship, Prince William and Kate went through not one, but two high-profile breakups, leading many people to wonder if they would ever get married and causing the news media to nickname the future duchess “Waity Katie.” Luckily, however, the wait came to an end in 2010, when, according to Hello! Magazine, Prince William presented his girlfriend with the diamond and sapphire engagement ring that once belonged to his mother, Princess Diana.
Finally, a royal wedding was in the works. The two of them got married in April 2011, and since then, Kate has more than proved that she is excellent at carrying out her duties as a royal.
Kate’s future role
Not everyone grows up to be one of the most famous women in the world, but for Kate, that is exactly what happened. She currently holds the title of Duchess of Cambridge, but as most people are well aware, that will one day change.
Kate is in the unique position of being married to Prince William, who is in the direct line of succession, and upon the death of Prince Charles, will become the King. Although Kate won’t be a ruling monarch, she will be a queen consort, and we have to say that we think she is absolutely perfect for that role.
Cafe Mom reports that when the day comes, Kate will enjoy a variety of new privileges, such as living at Buckingham Palace, having access to the Crown Jewels, and traveling the world even more than she does now.

Looks like Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip got all that they ever could have hoped for and more when their grandson, who will one day take the throne, married someone as perfect as Middleton.
