KATE, the Duchess of Cambridge, has been “carefully studying” senior royals to prepare herself to become Queen, a royal commentator has claimed. The Duchess of Cambridge, 40, is set to become Queen consort when Prince William inherits the throne but royal experts have shed light on how Kate will shake up the monarchy. In the Channel 5 documentary Kate: Our Queen in Waiting, royal expert Katie Nicholl explained how Kate will modernise the future of the Royal Family.
Ms Nicholl said: “She’s bringing a modern touch to the role but respecting all the traditions that come with being a future Queen.” Narrator David Riley added: “We’ll discover how she’s carefully studied senior royals, taken advice on fashion and media and slowly brought her values to the forefront.”
It comes as Kate is set to make history if she becomes the Grenadier Guards’ new colonel.
The Duchess may receive a promotion comes after the previous colonel, Prince Andrew, was stripped of all his military affiliations and royal patronages earlier this month. Us Weekly Correspondent Christina Garibaldi mentioned the potential “history-making” role on the Royally Us programme.
Co-host Christine Ross said the Grenadier Guards are “really keen to have her” and have “gone as far as to request it unofficially”. Ms Garibaldi said: “There are some reports that Duchess Kate may be getting a new title, new colonel of the Grenadier Guards.
“She would make history if this happens because she would be the first female appointed colonel of the Grenadier Guards and she would replace Prince Andrew. Ms Ross responded: “It would be incredible. It sounds like they are really keen to have her represent them.
“They have gone as far as to request it unofficially. It will be really interesting to see if Kate steps into this role. “It is a military role, but it is slightly more ceremonial.
