Speaking on behalf of Betfair Casino, Darren Stanton said William has developed as an “empath and as a communicator”.

Part of that is thanks to his marriage to Kate, Mr Stanton insisted.

Mr Stanton continued: “Kate has had a lot to do with building William’s confidence…

“…especially during Royal engagements and meeting other civil dignitaries.

“Of course, becoming a father has given William a great deal of inner peace and tranquility and boosted his confidence in himself.”

Meanwhile, Mr Stanton said Kate’s willingness when it comes to royal duties has had a “big influence” on her husband.

He said: “Kate, herself, is quietly confident and she is happy to attend events on her own without William as much as she is alongside him.

“She’s built her relationships with other members of the senior Royal family…

“…and her willingness when it comes to her Royal duties appears to have had a big influence on the way that William now thinks.”

“…whether it’s Royalty, a public figure, politician or member of the public – a trait his mother Diana was known for and one Kate has continuously shown.
