THE DUCHESS of Cambridge appeared to do “very little, really” for a time after joining the Royal Family leading the Queen to comment that “Kate doesn’t do very much” according to a Royal expert.
Phil Dampier, who has been reporting on the Royal family for over 20 years, made the claim to Express.co.uk. He explained this was partly because Prince William was initially very protective of her, following what happened to his mother. Unlike Meghan, who had a whirlwind romance with Prince Harry, Kate was introduced into the Royal fold gradually over multiple years.
Mr Dampier explained: “Kate was William’s girlfriend for eight or nine years before they got engaged and got married.
“The Queen once remarked Kate doesn’t do very much so I think she had a fairly long entrance to the Royal family.”
Kate met Prince William in 2001 whilst they were both students at St Andrew’s University in Scotland.
She joined the Prince on her first official Royal engagement in 2010, when the couple visited a Teenage Cancer Trust event in Norfolk.
Mr Dampier directly links Kate’s gradual arrival into the Royal fold with what happened to Princess Diana.
