Could Duchess Kate and Prince William be any cooler? It appears that they can. Currently on a tour of New Zealand and Australia, the royal couple continues to show how classy and elegant they really are. The world has been fascinated by their every move since their union in 2011, and they have yet to disappoint. The tour Down Under is further showcasing that they are not only royalty, but also human!
From slipping in her heels to playing cricket in them, Kate proves that she can handle herself with grace no matter what the situation entails. Regardless of who you are or what you have, some things are simply out of your control. The striking thing about Kate and William is that they seem a lot like the rest of us, even though they live a highly privileged life. When Prince George, the couple’s infant son, became – let’s say assertive – in acquiring toys during his first public playdate, Kate did what any other mother would do. She did her best to put a stop to it by diverting his attention to her. Now, how many other parents can relate to that?
Here’s another one for you. The Duchess has made a name for herself in the way she approaches fashion. She can have her pick of the latest trends – and often does – but what’s more impressive is that she frequently chooses to recycle something that she’s already worn in public before. She’s even doing that on her current tour. You and I live that way all the time. Score! Despite her circumstances, Princess Kate is accessible and grounded. Can the same thing be said about any one of the Kardashian women? There are those who talk and those who act. Kate speaks volumes without ever saying a word. For example, the Duchess squelched the possibility of being pregnant with baby #2 with a simple sip of wine. No Twitter, Facebook, or press release necessary.
There’s even more to admire about the young royal. The sheepish, albeit victorious, look on her face when she beat William during a sailing race in Auckland was priceless. Kate’s humility towards people is what draws us in. We want to root for her, because she is proving to be someone worth rooting for! She and William are two of the best role models we’ve got these days, whether you’re young or old, British or not! Whom would you rather a child look up to: Miley Cyrus or Kate Middleton? Justin Bieber or Prince William? I already know my answer to that. And, despite being older than Kate, I find her inspiring. Her thoughtful actions, her kindness towards others, her love of family, and the constant smile on her face are things you cannot buy or teach. That’s what makes her a princess worth believing in.
