Princess Kate’s work with children ‘insight’ into future role as Queen | Royal | News
Kate, Princess of Wales, gave a glimpse into what her priorities will be when she eventually takes the helm alongside Prince William as King.
While attending the first-ever children’s picnic at the Chelsea Flower Show this week, the 41-year-old mother of three was surrounded by children who asked her questions about being a member of the Royal Family.
One student, 11-year-old Saron Fikremariam, revealed she had asked the royal about her future plans.
She said: “I asked [the Princess] what’s the first thing she is going to do when she becomes Queen, and she said she is going to help kids.”
Royal commentator Jennifer Newton, speaking on the Pod Save the King podcast, said this response gave “insight” into her future goals when she eventually takes to the throne as Queen Consort in the years to come.
Ms Newton added: “It does feel like quite a lot of her engagements…seem quite focused on children which we know is one of her key missions for royal life.”
While “helping kids” may be integral to her time as Queen Consort, it is a mission Kate is already undertaking as Princess.
Having spent the past few years “finding her voice”, according to People source, Kate embarked on what she described as her “life’s work” to support generations of youngsters at the beginning of 2023.
Along with The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood — which she first set up in 2021 — she launched the Shaping Us campaign and in January, she set out her five-year campaign to help shape the country’s understanding of supporting children.
This plan was in action this week as she carried out several engagements highlighting the importance of nurturing relationships throughout early childhood and beyond.
It seems that helping children is the favourite part of her current role as when one child at the Chelsea Flower Show asked about what life was like as a royal, she said: “You have to work hard, but you know the best thing about it is meeting kiddies like you.”
Kate, who shares George, Charlotte and Louis with William, said having three children of her own inspired her work.
During a speech in 2019, she said: “As a parent, I have learned just how important it is to foster our children’s development, in all areas, not just physical, as soon as they are born.”
Since the death of Queen Elizabeth, the Princess of Wales has taken on more senior responsibilities, having taken on a number of the former monarch’s patronages.
Similar to her “life’s work”, she has become the patron of the Action for Children charity. Additionally, Kate is now the patron of All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club as well as The Law Tennis Association.
An avid photographer, Kate is now the patron of the Royal Photographic Society, a role the late Queen took on in the Fifties, and often takes pictures of the Royal Family.
Since officially joining the royal fold in 2011 when she tied the knot with William, Kate sought to learn what she could from the Queen.
As one source told People in September 2019: “She is an adoring mother, and she is contributing publicly in the way we would want her to. You see it more and more. The young student has turned into our future queen.”
