Kate Middleton doesnt feel overwhelmed as Princess of Wales but incredibly confident

Kate Middleton dazzled as she attended her first State Banquet since becoming Princess of Wales. She dazzled in diamonds at the event at Buckingham Palace in honour of the South African President Cyril Ramaphosa.

And following this appearance alongside her husband Prince William, royal expert Katie Nicholl gave her take on how Kate carried herself and remarked that she "doesn't feel overwhelmed" but "incredibly confident" as she steps out in her new role.

"She’s not letting anything overshadow or overwhelm the Princess of Wales that she wants to be. I think that’s very much to her credit and her confidence," Katie explained.

"You know, she’s been with William now for the best part of two decades and she has a lot of royal experience under her belt. I don’t think she’d find an event like the state dinner overwhelming. She will appreciate the importance of the event and she’s certainly taken on a more prominent role as the Princess of Wales. “

The author, who wrote The New Royals, added, “I think the fact that Kate and William were there to officially greet President Ramaphosa to bring him to Horseguards Parade was a real sign to the world their importance and power as Prince and Princess of Wales. I think she wears that very well.

"She doesn’t seem overwhelmed, she seems incredibly confident. I think she’s well equipped. All of this training has paid off. She can take it in her stride.”

And Kate has had great preparation in becoming our future queen from William's late grandmother and our beloved Queen.

“I think it’s very apparent in the way Kate conducts herself and how she carries herself in royal engagements that she’s been well prepared," Katie added.

"A lot of it comes down to her own innate confidence but there isn’t a princess training manual and the success of being a princess comes from experience and mentoring.

“She had a wonderful mentor in William but I think she also had a phenomenal mentor in the Queen."

Kate wore a white embellished Jenny Packham gown for the occasion with a regal diamond tiara, which belonged to her late mother-in-law Princess Diana. The Prince of Wales followed the white tie dress code with his tux.

Both Queen Consort Camilla and Kate wore jewels inherited from our late Queen for the dinner.
