Kate Middleton is undoubtedly one of the most admired members of the royal family today. For the nine long years that she has been a royal, however, many royal followers have admitted having discovered some shocking things about the Duchess of Cambridge.

Kate Middleton and Prince William's royal wedding in 2009 was one of the most-watched events in history, having had billions of spectators watching worldwide. Many looked forward to Kate being a new addition to the royal family and to discovering what she could offer to the table, considering her background.

She Adopted To Royal Life With Ease

According to some royal followers, the most shocking thing they have discovered about Kate was her ability to transition to royal life so seamlessly, as if she was actually born a royal. “That she wasn’t born royal. She has settled into her role as Duchess, wife, and mom with such beauty, grace, and charisma,” one royal fan commented on Quora.

“She does her job wonderfully and graciously as the wife of the heir,” another royal follower noted. “Obviously intelligent, well-educated, but all the public sees is what she allows,” she added.

Shes Good At Locking Out The Media

One royal follower also noted how good Kate has been at locking out the media, making people see only the things she wants them to see. “Who she is at home, what makes her laugh, what makes her lose her temper, what keeps her up worrying at night, none of that has ever leaked,” another fan noted. “She keeps it behind a bland, charming façade.”

She Performs Her Duties Without Any Added Drama

Some royal followers also find it shocking that Kate is able to do her job in the royal family without any drama. “Nothing, and I think that’s kind of the point with her, because she works steadily on her charities, brings up her family and represents the Queen. All with no fuss or drama,” answered another fan when asked about the thing she finds most shocking about Kate.

She Handles Her Relationship With Meghan Well 

One fan also noted that it’s shocking how Kate has been tolerant toward Meghan, whose attitude has been in the rumor mill since she married into the royal family. “How tolerant she’s been towards Meghan,” the fan noted. “However, she does seem to be very close to Harry and it’s probably for his sake she’s tolerating her,” the fan added.
