Another hellish week passed for the British royal family after Queen Elizabeth II stripped all the titles of her favorite son, Prince Andrew. Sources close to the family say the monarchy is counting on one person who could save the family’s reputation in the midst of a sea of ongoing scandals. Yes, you guess, that person is the future queen, the Duchess of Cambridge.
“Kate is exactly what Queen needs in these turbulent royal times. It’s no exaggeration to say that the future of Windsor lies in her hands.” Patrick Jephson, Princess Diana’s former chief of staff, told The Post exclusively.
To this situation, we can add the tensions over Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after they decided to start a life away from the royal family and accused her senior member of questioning the skin color of their son Archie.
Reportedly, the entire team of advisors is focused on shaping Kate to restore the family’s reputation.
The Duchess of Cambridge celebrated her 40th birthday, and in Paolo Roversi’s photographs taken on the occasion, she wears a cult sapphire and diamond engagement ring that belonged to her late mother’s late mother, Diana, as well as Collingwood Pearl ex-Princess of Wales earrings.
“Kate and William’s decision to continue involving Diana in the opening of the new royal chapter is a very sensible one,” Bethan Holt, fashion director of the British Daily Telegraph, told The Post, adding “It is very wise of Kate to keep the memory of her “. The Duchess of Cambridge has worn the aforementioned earrings on a number of other occasions in recent years.
“The monarchy is a long game and, unlike business, politics or media fame, the royal one is lifelong and its time horizons are endless,” Jephson said. “Catherine has mastered that long game and it is a very significant achievement. She is needed more than ever for the family’s reputation and not only because of the scandal, but also because she and William are much more popular than the next king, Prince Charles, and his second wife Camille. “
It remains to be seen how Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, will be received when Charles becomes king and Kate receives the title of Princess of Wales, just as Diana once did. It can also be assumed that the goal is to highlight the differences between Kate and her sister-in-law Meghan Markle.
Recall, Kate officially entered the royal life by marrying William on April 29, 2011. The couple now has three children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte and 3-year-old Prince Louis. Sarah Burton, creative director of Alexander McQueen, was responsible for her wedding dress, and The Post claims she also helped design birthday portraits.
Photographer Roversi, who often worked with Burton, was selected for the job after meeting Kate at Kensington Palace in November. Roversi told the Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera that William and the children helped make the final decisions about the selection of the photos, adding: “Initially, the duchess was worried. Photographers catch her every day, but she’s not used to posing. “.
