Everyone knows that Prince William will one day be the King of England. But, when it comes to his home life with Kate Middleton, the couple have a strong partnership and they work together as a team.
An insider recently told People magazine that William and Kate have different roles in their marriage, but they come together as a team and are “a great double act.”
“They take care of themselves but in a different way”, explains the source. “Some people might say it’s an old-fashioned marriage, but it seems to be working.”
The main royal source said the partnership between the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was evident during their recent royal tour of Pakistan. The insider explained that William made a lot of speeches during big speeches, but Kate is always there by his side. And, she asks questions of presidents and their wives.
“These things are easier when side by side,” said the insider.
They added that the Foreign Office, which is where all of the royal family’s travel decisions are made when members of Queen Elizabeth’s family travel on behalf of the Commonwealth, thinks that William and Kate together are a ” huge asset ”. And, they also believe that the public perception of the couple is “strong”.
After their successful trip to Pakistan, the source indicates that William and Kate will make two overseas tours in 2020.
Prince William still has a few years before becoming king. Her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, is 93 years old and apparently has no plans to retire anytime soon. And his father, Prince Charles, is 71 years old and is the heir to the throne.
Despite his parents’ divorce when he was a young child and the tragic loss of his mother when he was only 15 years old, William had a growing family and support system. And, since he started dating Kate in 2003, he has also had the support of his family, including his parents Carole and Michael Middleton.
However, William was treated for his role as monarch from the day of his birth. And, royal historian Robert Lacey says that William is “better placed and better grounded” than other monarchs in recent history, even his father.
