Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, 39, has flourished as a working royal since joining the Firm a decade ago. However, despite the Duchess’s growing confidence, she is unlikely to bring about any dramatic changes to the Royal Family in future, a body language expert has claimed.
Since marrying Prince William, 39, in 2011, the Duchess of Cambridge has settled into life in the royal bubble and ramped up her public profile in recent years with a growing number of solo projects and diplomatic engagements.
The future Queen Consort is considered a safe pair of hands and has shone in the wake of Megxit winning Britons’ hearts with the huge number of engagements she has carried out during the pandemic.
Despite her growing influence, the “pitch-perfect” Duchess is not a royal renegade, according to a body language expert who has examined recent photos of Kate.
Body language expert and author Judi James analysed five pictures of Kate taken since the start of the year and shared her insights.
Kate’s influence is limited despite her the fact she “has never put a foot wrong,” Judi claimed.
The expert told Express.co.uk: “Kate has always been a pitch-perfect royal, although the rather wary and rather protective approach of her husband has meant she has appeared slightly one-dimensional in the past, never putting a foot wrong but never revealing different aspects of her personality either.
“For the past couple of years though and especially since lockdowns started, we have been able to meet Kate properly as an independent royal; future Queen and of course wife and mother.”
The confidence Kate has shown at recent engagements will be a huge comfort to her husband and future king William, Judi claimed.
She explained: “If William was worried about the extra exposure and the increased interest in his wife he clearly didn’t need to.
“Her appearances as a campaigner in her own right; as a royal host by herself, and even as a very influential royal within the Firm have all revealed her traits of confidence and inner resolve.”
Since the start of the year, Kate has launched a huge solo project setting up a new research centre to look into the impact of early years education, a cause close to her heart.

The Duchess seems to have transformed into a “leader” having previously been “a follower”, the analyst explained.
Judi said: “Kate is now appearing as a leader rather than a careful follower and although she will probably never be someone to challenge or instigate change in the Royal Family, her current profile must be one of the reasons that William looks so much more relaxed and proud when they appear together in public.”
Kate and William both had a busy weekend of sports engagements due to their ties to Wimbledon and English football.
As patron of Wimbledon tennis tournament, Kate attended yesterday’s men’s final with her father Michael Middleton after going to the women’s finals with William on Saturday.
William is head of the FA, and on Sunday evening attended the England vs Italy Euro 2020 final at Wembley with Kate and their eldest child Prince George, seven.

The Duke of Cambridge condemned racist attacks on some members of the England squad following yesterday’s game in a strongly-worded statement.
William said: “I am sickened by the racist abuse aimed at England players after last night’s match. It is totally unacceptable that players have to endure this abhorrent behaviour. It must stop now and all those involved should be held accountable. W”
