Kate Middleton made a touching comment about her husband Prince William, when a royal fan remarked, "You're going to be a brilliant Princess of Wales!"


Kate Middleton and Prince William are naturally quite private when it comes to their relationship, but it's clear they always step up to support each other whenever the occasion arises. 

A recent example was captured on camera by one royal fan at Cardiff Castle, during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations. A royal fan was filming the Duchess greeting onlookers, when a woman grasped Catherine's hand and told her, "You're going to be a brilliant Princess of Wales". To which the Duchess meaningfully replies, "I'm in good hands," while looking over at Prince William.

The sweet moment was captured on camera and the clip shared on Twitter by user @hellen3030. 

The Duchess of Cambridge was pictured looking radiant in a bright ensemble with Kate's red coat and earrings both from local designers and her coat from brand Eponine based in London. Kate Middleton's glossy hair was fashioned in a simple ponytail hairstyle, with natural makeup for an understated, yet polished, look.

Alongside the video, royal fan @hellen3030 captioned her Tweet, "At Cardiff Castle, I captured the moment when a lady told The Duchess of Cambridge ‘You’re going to be a brilliant Princess’ and she replied looking at Prince William ‘I’m in good hands’."

However, many also question whether Kate Middleton is a Princess already and whether she will hold that title in the future. 

The short answer is that Princess Catherine isn't the Duchess's official title currently, it is thought that when Prince William becomes the ruling monarch, Kate Middleton will follow in the footsteps of Duchess Camilla and be named the Queen Consort.
