Kate Middleton is taking over the title from Queen Elizabeth II, according to one outlet.
Kate Middleton is destined to be a queen but only when Prince William takes over the kingship from his father, Prince Charles. But one tabloid published a report claiming that the Duchess of Cambridge is the new queen. Gossip Cop examined the report and here’s what it found.
Kate Middleton is the new queen rumors
Woman’s Day published a report a year ago claiming that Queen Elizabeth II had changed the line of succession. It quoted a bogus insider claiming that Her Majesty informed Prince Charles that there was a shake up in the line of succession.
The insider added that the monarch didn’t believe in Prince Charles. Her Majesty allegedly knew that the monarchy’s future lies on Prince William and Kate Middleton. So, the Queen reportedly told the Prince of Wales to step aside for his son and daughter-in-law.
Woman’s Day added that Queen Elizabeth doubted Prince Charles’ ability to run the family, so she wanted to skip the Prince of Wales.

Gossip Cop refuted the report because the claim that Prince William and Kate Middleton are reigning after her is not true. Her Majesty is the longest-reining monarch because that’s how the law of succession was in place before she was born. The Queen promised to serve until her last breath.
But the Queen doesn’t have the authority to pick her successor. And by law, Prince Charles is the legal heir to the throne.
Gossip Cop already dismissed the report last year and its verdict remains the same after 365 days – it’s false.
Also, the tabloids have a reputation of publishing false reports. The same magazine alleged that Prince William and Kate Middleton were flying to Los Angeles to confront Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Gossip Cop also investigated the report and corrected the bogus narrative. The outlet has learned that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex never took the said trip.
Kate Middleton praised for class and elegance
Meanwhile, Kate Middleton has been praised for her attitude. She is one of the most popular royals because of her classy act and her being a regal. Many royal fans also praised the way Middleton handle her responsibilities and duties as a royal.
“I also admire her commitment because I can imagine how it must be difficult to embrace such duties and a public life,” one source said.
