How Duchess Kate is preparing to become the future Queen

How Duchess Kate is preparing to become the future Queen

She’s the future Queen consort of England, and the Duchess of Cambridge is preparing for the coveted role by taking on new responsibilities.

While the 37-year-old won’t be taking up the role anytime soon, there are rumours circulating that the Queen plans to abdicate the throne and hand over the position to Prince Charles, who will then become King.

If that occurs, Prince William will then become the Prince of Wales, marking his journey towards the head of the monarch as King. The Duchess will then be known as Queen Catherine.

“Kate’s been taking on new responsibilities little by little over the last few years, so it won’t be a shock when the time comes,” said royal expert Rebecca Long to Us Weekly.

“William and Kate are the favourite royals to take the crown in many generations, so the people of the UK are very excited about it.”

Kate accompanied the Queen at King’s College in London for the first time last month.

“She’s really taken Kate under her wing,” another insider said to the publication.

“The two of them will often spend hours discussing royal life and the future of the monarchy.”

And while Kate is working on her skills as a future Queen, Prince William is also undertaking training to prepare him for when he becomes King.

He is gearing up to acquire his father’s estate and has been regularly attending financial meetings as he discusses the management of assets within the royal family.
