The Duchess’ biographer, Claudia Joseph says that Kate’s “relatable” nature and her preference for wearing affordable clothes has helped get her into the Queen’s good books.
“She’s very much the girl next door, from how she dresses to how she behaves and interacts with people on engagements,” said Joseph.
“She is likeable and relatable and that has made her very popular.”
Claudia added that 2019 has been “Kate’s year”, with a number of successful engagements and her first ever TV interview.
