Kate Middleton was upset with the claims that she resents her royal duties because, contrary to the report, she is more than happy to step up.
Kate Middleton has been part of the royal family for nine years. She also received criticisms from the press like her sister-in-law Meghan Markle but not as harsh. But things turned worse with Tatler’s report last week.
Kate Middleton was upset about the inaccurate report from Tatler
Tatler published a report last week announcing that Kate Middleton would be gracing its July-August cover. However, things went awry after the publication quoted unnamed sources claiming that the Duchess of Cambridge was feeling “exhausted” and “trapped.”
Another source spoke with Variety and defended Middleton. The insider denied the claims that Middleton was complaining about her duties. In fact, on the contrary, Middleton was more than happy to step up.
“It’s the suggestion that she resents her duty and hard work which has upset her,” says a source.
“She takes her role very seriously and has been working harder than ever. The idea she feels trapped and exhausted simply isn’t the case.”
Duchess of Cambridge’s views on her job
Kate Middleton dated Prince William for almost a decade before they tied the knot. She was already briefed about the kind of life waiting for her as a royal before she became an official member of the Firm.
The insider said, Middleton is enjoying her stride from the beginning. She has already found her purpose in the monarchy and is looking forward to returning to her job.
“She has really been enjoying the early years work and has found her stride and purpose,” a source who closely works with the duchess said.
“She sees this work as a life-long commitment and she has worked really hard on this campaign.”
Other claims on Tatler
An insider told Tatler that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle fought ahead of the latter’s royal wedding due to a pair of tights. A so-called source claimed that the two duchesses couldn’t agree if the bridesmaids should wear tights or not.
“It was a hot day and apparently there was a row over whether the bridesmaids should wear tights or not. Kate, following protocol, felt that they should. Meghan didn’t want them to,” the source said.
The Cambridges took legal actions
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge sent Tatler legal letters demanding it to remove the online report. Kensington Palace also released a statement about the issue, saying that it contained “a swathe of inaccuracies.”
However, Tatler stood its ground. The publication confirmed that it received a letter from Prince William and Kate Middleton’s lawyers but said that “it has no merit,” The Mail on Sunday reported.
