Even though Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall will be Queen Consort one day, it seems like the public will look to Kate Middleton instead.
“The position of Consort is a trusted royal role and has been carried out in the past by Queen Mary and the Queen Mother," David Riley, who was featured on Channel 5's Kate: Our Queen in Waiting, said. “As the next spouse of a Monarch, Camilla will also be known as Queen Consort."
“It’s an interesting point that people will look to Kate before Camilla,” Russell Myers, the royal editor for The Mirror, added. “The interest has gathered at such a pace with William and Kate that people do see them as the next custodians."
It's no surprise that the 40-year-old is so well liked, as she is down to earth and lovable.
In the future, we "will see Kate become the most publicly prominent female in the royal family," commentator Dan Wootton claimed, adding that Kate and Prince William will follow in the footsteps of his parents.
"What will happen is that when the couple go on visits abroad it will be more like what Charles and Diana did, where they each branch out and do more engagements on their own. They'll go to the same country, but she'll go her way and he'll go his," a source told the reporter.
Recently, the mom-of-three embarked on a solo royal tour to Denmark, and it looked like she excelled at her royal duties.
"Kate loves a challenge and arriving in Copenhagen on her own without the support of William might have been a little testing, but Kate will take it all in her well-shod stride," expert Ingrid Seward said. "She is confident and she is also passionate about her subject and is determined to make a success of the opportunity to take the work of her childhood foundation international. 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."
