In April it will be a decade since the Duchess of Cambridge’s spectacular royal wedding, which saw her tie the knot with Prince William. Royal author Duncan Larcombe claimed the monarch is likely to be making plans to mark the milestone, adding that she has a “fantastic relationship” with her daughter-in-law.
Former royal editor Mr Larcombe told OK! magazine: “It’s highly likely she’ll be planning a special secret something to honour Kate’s 10 years in the Royal Family – something she can do to mark it.
“Kate and the Queen have a fantastic relationship.
“Kate strikes that balance between bowing to her as head of the Royal Family in public but being able to check in with her as the great-grandmother to her children.”
The royal author added that Kate has been giving the Queen regular updates on Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis during the pandemic.
Mr Larcombe said: “Kate has her own direct line to speak to the Queen and she calls her to check in on her and give her updates on the children.
“She always leans on her for advice.
“It’s believed Kate was the one to teach the Queen how to use Zoom and that’s been lovely, so she can see her great-grandkids and stay connected.”
In 2019, the Queen marked Kate’s eighth royal anniversary by appointing her a Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order – a huge honour.
