It comes as the Duke and Duchess prepare to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary later this week.
Thursday will mark 10 years since Kate Middleton married into the royal family at Westminster Abbey, watched by millions across the globe.
It is a crucial time for the couple as they step up to support the Queen following the death of her husband Prince Philip earlier this month after 73 years of marriage.
Royal biographer Phil Dampier told FEMAIL last week that the Duchess shares Her Majesty’s ‘tolerance and pragmatism’ and is ‘maturing rapidly’ as her 10th wedding anniversary approaches.
He said that following the Duke of Edinburgh’s death, Kate is set to take on more responsibility within the firm.
He said: ‘She has picked up many of the Queen’s qualities of tolerance and pragmatism, not overreacting to situations but trying to decide what is best in the long run.
‘Like the Queen she doesn’t hold grudges or seek revenge.’
He added: ‘Kate realises that the Queen needs her and William more than ever and she will do all she can to support her.’
