Kate Middleton's solo trip to Denmark stood out to royal experts for plenty of reasons, but Ingrid Seward was most taken by how much her actions resembled Princess Diana's.
"Kate has no sense of entitlement or grandeur. She is what she is and just wants to get on with it," Seward explained to the The Mirror. "There are similarities to the way Princess Diana did things all those years ago."
The late mother-of-two's visit to Norway in 1984 marked her first solo trip.
"She has just discovered she was pregnant for the second time but no announcement had been made. When Diana arrived in Norway, she found a note inside her suitcase written by her husband which read, 'We were so proud of you' and was signed 'Willie wombat and I.' (the nickname Charles and Diana gave to their son at the time)," the expert shared. "Maybe Kate too will have a note from William. I am certain that he is very proud of her."
Seward also commended Kate for how she confidently and passionately went about her duties while in the country, where she met with young students, discussed the importance of supporting children's mental health and chatted with Crown Princess Mary and Queen Margrethe.
The trip proved that the the brunette beauty will be more than capable when she and William take the throne.
"No one has any doubts about Kate’s ability to manage whatever she wants to do with grace and aplomb, she is more than a safe pair of hands. She is totally reliable and a true professional at what she does as both the Queen and Prince William are well aware," noted the expert. "Part of Kate’s magic is that she actually enjoys what she is doing. Whether it's talking to the professionals about the science behind infant child development or discussing more down to earth issues with their parents, she makes sure everyone feels included."
