KATE Middleton is following in Prince Philip's footsteps and "doesn't try to outshine William" but "still has a lot to say", an expert has claimed.
Speaking to People magazine, royal author Penny Juror drew comparisons between Kate Middleton and Prince Philip's roles in the Royal Family.
Explaining how Kate works together with Prince William, Penny said: "She's never trying to outshine him in any way.
"I think that Kate is a bit like Prince Philip supporting the Queen.
"She doesn't outshine William but still has a lot to say herself."
When the UK went into lockdown, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge conducted various royal engagements together via Zoom – including when they praised mental health workers for the work they'd been doing during the coronavirus crisis.
Most recently, Kate chose to support a local garden centre for her first public appearance since lockdown.
Although Penny Juror says Kate "still has a lot to say for herself", royal author Sarah Gristwood claims the couple's marriage is in some ways as traditional as The Queen and Prince Philip's.
She told the publication: "In one sense [Kate] and William's was a modern royal marriage, in that it was a love match.
"But in another it has been old-fashioned. She mostly appears as a supportive figure to her husband."
The couple first met at the University of St Andrews in 2001 before tying the knot in 2011.
