THE QUEEN adores Kate Middleton as Her Majesty can see that the Duchess ‘loved William for himself, not for his title’, a royal expert has said.
Royal biographer, Andrew Morton, has said the monarch also spends time nurturing and supporting the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s relationship.
Speaking to OK! magazine, Mr Morton said: “The thing about Kate is the Queen was impressed she adored and loved William for himself, not for his title.
“She spends a lot more time supporting and nurturing the relationship between William and Catherine than she did with Charles and Diana. It’s pretty clear she wasn’t going to make that mistake again.
“Everything that happened in [Kate and William’s] relationship was quite strategic, quite thought through, after a period of time. In the beginning, nobody in the royal household expected for a second that the university romance with Catherine and William would continue for any time after they graduated, like most college romances which disintegrate under the intense scrutiny of jobs and geography.”
