Kate Middleton discusses the “art of walkabouts” and her early struggles as a member of the Royal Family.
Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, opened out about a habit that has been ridiculed by members of the Royal family.
The Duchess of Cambridge discussed the “craft of walkabouts” – and her personal struggles – in the 2016 ITV documentary Our Queen At Ninety.
Kate had her first television interview since her engagement to Prince William in 2011.
“Walkabouts are a true art,” the Duchess of Cambridge, 39, added.
“Everyone in the family teases me about chatting for much too long.
“I believe I still need to learn a little bit more and pick up a few more tips.”
Kate’s concern about being too “chatty” wasn’t the only one she had when she joined The Firm.
She didn’t know what to get the Queen for Christmas her first year at Sandringham.
She decided to make a homemade gift for the queen, who is 95 years old.
“I thought to myself, ‘I’ll create her something.'” Which could have turned out disastrously,” Kate told ITV.
She decided to create a homemade chutney for the Queen using her grandmother’s recipe.
“I was a little concerned about it, but the next day I found it on the table.
“I believe such a little gesture went such a long way for me, and I’ve observed she’s done it on a number of occasions, and I think it just shows her thoughtfulness and concern in looking after everyone,” she says.
While studying at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met 20 years ago.
In their student housing, the pair resided just a few doors apart from each other.
They married in Westminster Abbey in 2011 after several years of courting.
They have three children since then: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
