Although in the beginning doubts were expressed about the success of this high-profile commoner/royal union, Prince William and Catherine have proved skeptics wrong. The royal continue to be happily married unlike the doomed union of the formers parents Prince Charles and late Lady Diana.
The secret to this practically perfect union between commoner Kate Middleton and the future British King, Prince William is in their pragmatic life in private. Royal analysts opine that the Duchess of Cambridge, the down-to-earth Catherine makes hubby William feel like a ‘normal’ person keeping him grounded always.
The duo met as students at St Andrews University and after an intense eight-year long courtship, married last year. Their wedding as royal watchers know was a grand affair watched by two billion people globally; however despite the grandeur of Prince William’s position, it is Kate’s “ordinariness” that he really “craves” desperately.
It is this ‘normal’ quality in Duchess Kate that floors Prince William every-time and keeps him hooked to her and will hopefully do for a lifetime. Being born with a golden spoon, he has had his upbringing in palaces and surrounded by aides and protection officers. For him, sensible Kate is like a breath of fresh air, who gives him the normal life he has always desired.
A source told People: “She brings a sense of ordinariness that William has always craved. Kate makes recipes learned from her mother.” It is true that to the outside world they are not openly affectionate in public probably keeping in mind their position.
However, a friend of the couple discloses that there should be no mistake about their absolute love and commitment for each other, who in private are the “touchy feely” kind. Friends revealed: "There is nothing contrived about [their romance]."
Most royal watchers must have seen that rare display of open emotion at the London Olympic Games when seeing Sir Chris Hoy win the historic sixth gold medal in the velodrome, a jubilant Kate hugged her husband and an equally ecstatic William scooped her off the ground. In this context the insider claimed: "They are [touchy] like that in private – completely.” No doubt the duo is the favorite of almost everyone.
The only thing missing in this fairytale romance is a little cherubic baby. Apparently, now it is on the ‘top of their agenda.’ With the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and Olympics out of the way, Wills and Kate finally have time to make a baby. In fact they are said to already have a plan in place.
A member of the royal couple’s social circle told Life & Style magazine: “William and Kate are putting all their effort into having a baby … They would love to be expecting by the end of the year,” he added. It was only due to their hectic royal obligations that they had to postpone their efforts to begin a family sooner.
The conscientious couple didn’t want anything to take away from the grandeur of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee or the London Olympic Games. Now that most of those royal duties are out of the way, the couple intermittently takes time out to go to their beach cottage in Anglesey away from the prying public gaze.
“She just wants to hide away in Wales — out of the glare and the spotlight — and get on with producing the future king or queen of England,” the insider revealed. Well, nearly everyone is keeping their fingers crossed for terrific news of the royal replica of Wills and Kate in the near future.
