Real reason the Queen ‘was impressed’ by Kate Middleton ‘revealed’

Kate married into the Royal Family in 2011

The Queen was “impressed” by Kate Middleton because she loved Prince William “for himself, not for his title”, a royal expert has claimed in latest news.

The monarch, 96, shares a close bond with both her grandson William and his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge.

However, according to a royal author, Her Majesty was “impressed” by Kate’s attitude towards William.

“She spends a lot more time supporting and nurturing the relationship between William and Catherine than she did with Charles and Diana. It’s pretty clear she wasn’t going to make that mistake again.”

Elsewhere, in his new book, Mr Morton shared a sweet detail about the Queen from William and Kate’s wedding day.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge married at Westminster Abbey in 2011.

Mr Morton claimed the big day left Her Majesty “practically skipping” and she saw it as an “important milestone” for the monarchy.

In an extract from the book The Queen, published by the Daily Mirror, the author said: “The Queen was positively playful on the day of her grandson’s nuptials, ‘practically skipping’ according to one observer, absolutely thrilled at the way the public had reacted to the royal newlyweds.”
