Even though Prince William isn't King just yet, his wife, Kate Middleton, is looking forward to taking on more responsibilities as Queen Consort.
William, 39 — who shares Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3, with Kate — isn't in charge just yet, but he has some plans in motion.
"William accepts that being in the spotlight is part of the job, and is fine with it," explained the source. "He takes his future role as King and seriously and sees at as a great honor and privilege to be in his position. The Monarchy and his family will always come first."
Meanwhile, the mom-of-three will have no problem adjusting to her new role. "The Queen very much regards Catherine as ... a safe pair of hands," expert Joe Little shared with Us Weekly. "She’s been a member of the royal family for 10 years now. I think given that all that’s going on in the past few years in the royal family in terms of the fallouts ... the Queen has great trust in Kate."
"Kate has found her own niche within the royal family," he continued. "And she focuses on things that mean a great deal to her that she feels that she can give something to the charity ... in a great way."
