The Duchess of Cambridge and future Queen of England, Kate Middleton, celebrates her 40th birthday this Sunday, at the peak of her popularity and with an increasingly important role within the British royal family. Born Catherine Middleton and nicknamed Kate, this former art student, commoner, entered the UK's most watched family in 2011. For many, the wife of Prince William, eldest son of the heir to the throne, today symbolizes the future of the monarchy. . With brown hair and an always impeccable appearance, Kate always complies with her official commitments with a smile, sending an image of confidence at a difficult time for a monarchy that has no choice but to close ranks in the face of scandals and various divisions.

Recently, she once again pleased her fans and an ever-enthusiastic press during a Christmas concert at Westminster Abbey, broadcast on television and dedicated to those who worked during the coronavirus pandemic. The Duchess of Cambridge accompanied singer Tom Walker on piano, who performed her song "For These Who Can't Be Here"Both Kate Middleton and her husband, Guillermo, who will turn 40 in June, have gained visibility since the health crisis began, holding videoconferences with health workers or recounting their confined life with their children Jorge, Carlota and Luis - in a great country house - and the ups and downs of homeschooling.

As restrictions have been eased and Queen Elizabeth II, 95, has reduced activities in her schedule, the couple has multiplied official appearances, from the world premiere of the new installment of the James Bond saga to the COP26 climate summit. Kate has also become more involved in her favorite topics, such as childhood and, together with Guillermo, mental health and environmental protection.

AN IMPERTURBABLE CHARACTER The former private marriage secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, cited between her virtues the fact that she has her feet on the ground and her imperturbable character. "She takes the time to talk to people," Lowther-Pinkerton explained to The Times, comparing her to the mother of Queen Elizabeth II, a symbol of British resistance during World War II: "When something has to be done, she does it".

At the dawn of her relationship with William, at the Scottish University of Saint Andrews, Kate's social origins, who grew up in a middle-class family, gave much to talk about, as well as her ability to integrate into the world of royalty. , full of traditions and conventions. But she, in public at least, has given the impression of adapting perfectly to her obligations related to her role in the Royal Family, unlike her sister-in-law Meghan, little liked by the tabloids and quite unpopular with the public. British. With Kate Middleton, the media has been quite benevolent, especially since Meghan and her husband, Prince Harry, popularly known as Harry, decided to leave the royal family and move to the United States.

Some blame the difference in the treatment given by the media to Kate and Meghan to a disdain for those who take it easy, something that goes against British phlegm. And yet, Kate has also been criticized, especially for her irreproachable appearance. The writer Hilary Mantel even went so far as to compare her to a "window display mannequin, without personality."However, Kate is seen, within the Royal Family, as someone who can be counted on in a delicate moment, between the explosive confidences of Enrique and Meghan and the accusations of sexual assault leveled against the second son of the sovereign, Prince Andrew.

In the midst of the storm, the Royal Family has closed ranks around a few members. And like Guillermo, his father, Prince Charles, has grown in importance, preparing to succeed his mother. More in The World Elizabeth II, the black chronicle of her II Annus Horribilis Morata's last emotional farewell to the boy to whom he dedicated the goal against Sweden: "Your star will travel with me wherever I go" Given the age of Prince Charles (73 years) and his low popularity, many commentators suggest that his reign will be more of a transition before the arrival of William and Kate to the throne. "They will surely give the monarchy, after such old monarchs, a sense of modernity that is probably necessary to help its continuity," explained specialist Robert Jobson.
