“Everyone I have spoken to confirms that Kate is a very warm person, but also very calm and very kind,” he said. “I think she’s very strong, but she’s very aware, very kind to the people who work for her. Rather than ordering people to do things, she asks them to do things.”

Quinn said Middleton provided a stable family life for William, who endured the tragedy of the loss of his mother, Princess Diana, in 1997. The prince later admitted that his mother’s death while he was n he was 15 years old had had a profound impact on his mental health.

But Middleton hasn’t always been hailed by the British press for being the ideal Queen Consort. Quinn pointed out that at the start of the couple’s courtship display, the tabloids were quick to highlight their middle-class past in their coverage.

Middleton’s father is a former British Airways officer and her mother a former flight attendant, far from her husband’s upbringing at Kensington Palace. During her intermittent relationship with William, Middleton was given the unflattering nickname “Waity Katie”, referring to the idea that she was supposedly waiting for the Duke of Cambridge to make her proposal.

“Kate was a perfect [companion] because she’s so calm and stable, and that’s what he needs, ”Quinn said. “I’m not saying she’s sort of a second mother, but there is an element to that. She is… a rock. It’s a bit of a cliché, but he’s someone who just doesn’t have a story all over the place. She is very calm, very rational. And I think that’s why the royals feel safe. “

“She is also doing something which is absolutely essential to be happy while being a member of the royal family,” he continued. “Whatever the press may say about you, you don’t complain or explain. And Kate is very good at that.”
