Kate Middleton is ‘playing a big hand’ in the ongoing remolding of the monarchy having found confidence after Megxit, a royal expert has claimed.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 39, is currently living at her Kensington Palace home with Prince William, 38, and their three children, Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three, having celebrated her tenth wedding anniversary with the Duke last week.
Sources have now revealed how the mother-of-three’s work has been ‘refocused’ in the past year since Prince Harry, 36, and Meghan Markle, 39, announced their plans to step back from life in the royal family.
Speaking to Vanity Fair’s Katie Nicholl, historian and author Sarah Gristwood said: ‘I’ll bet those courtiers who reputedly once sneered about ‘Waity Katy’ are the very ones bowing lowest now.
Kate Middleton, 39, is ‘playing a big hand’ in the ongoing remoulding of the monarchy having found confidence after Megxit, a royal expert has claimed
‘She looks like the person who’s going to have to play a big hand in the ongoing remoulding of the monarchy.’
It was around 2008 when the cruel tag ‘Waity Katie’ was aimed by some at William’s then long-time girlfriend.
However one palace aide said that since joining The Firm in 2010, the Duchess has become ‘very focused’ on her role.
In fact, despite the heartache of Megxit, sources said it has made Kate even more determined and confident in the past 18 months.
One palace aide also revealed how the Duchess has become ‘very focused’ on her role and wants to bring about ‘real, lasting change’ with her passion project on Early Years development
They said it has prompted her to want to bring about ‘real, lasting change’, in particular with her passion project on Early Years development.
They revealed: ‘The duchess is definitely doing things that are different and outside her comfort zone these days, and that’s because she feels confident doing them.
‘She’s very comfortable in her royal role and her family role. She’s a very hands-on mum.
‘They are a happy family and that has resulted in a quiet confidence about her.’

The comments come as Russel Myers said Prince William and Prince Charles will leave Prince Harry and Meghan to ‘sort things out on their own’ while they ‘unite in getting back to business.
The royal expert has said Prince William and his father, the Prince of Wales, 72, ‘want to draw a line under Harry and Meghan’ who have been a ‘distraction for the family.’
Speaking to talkRADIO about the Duke of Sussex and Meghan, who live with their son Archie, one, in a $14.7million home in Santa Barbara, California, the royal expert explained: ‘The rest of the Royal Family are very, very united in trying to get back to business.’
‘We have hardly seen them. They have popped up on Zoom calls here and there.’

‘But no one has done the real business of monarchy, which is getting out, being among the people and shining a light on different charities, and travelling the world and the Commonwealth.
He continued: ‘It’s part of getting Britain back on its feet. As far as Harry and Meghan are concerned, I think they will be left to try and sort things out on their own.’
It comes after radio host Kevin O’Sullivan commented: ‘There was this suggestion that Charles was all for forgive, forget, heal the rift – but apparently not.
‘If that is his state of mind, I think the British people will be behind him every step of the way. I think most people think Harry does not deserve to be forgiven.’

Russell went on to note how the Oprah Winfrey interview went down like a ‘lead balloon.’
During the bombshell interview, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said racism drove them out of Britain and claimed their son Archie was denied the title of prince because he is mixed-race.
Meghan also claimed that Kate Middleton left her in tears during a row over bridesmaid dresses and Prince Harry accused his father Prince Charles of refusing to take his calls when the pair moved to the US last year.
‘There will be quite a lot of dissatisfaction in the camp and it remains to be seen whether they will ever be brought back in,’ the royal expert continued.

‘I’m sure that Harry was a bit sheepish seeing the rest of his family at Prince Philip’s funeral.’
He added: ‘It was the first time he has spoken to many of them since that Oprah Winfrey interview where he accused them of all manner of things.’
‘He went back to America with his tail between his legs and who knows what will happen in the future.’
