Prince William and Kate Middleton ‘primed to lead monarchy and see it evolve’

A royal insider has claimed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are the perfect pair to 'help them both navigate royal life for a decade' and 'seeing the institution evolve'.

Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, William and Kate's former private secretary, said that the couple provide great balance and support to one another to see William through as the future king.

Lowther-Pinkerton told PEOPLE Royals: "They are bringing to the party different means of achieving the whole.

"He has the experience of knowing where the institution sits and seeing it evolve.

"The Duchess brings this pragmatic awareness of what it's like to be from a decent, down-to-earth family."

The former staffer goes on to say how they're engaging with a range of different issue that The Firm has not always tussled with.

"They are playing a really important role in finding a point of connection for a different range of subjects that the family hasn't always connected with," says Lowther-Pinkerton.

As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are no longer working royals, a lot more attention has landed on the Cambridges to be the "modern face of the institution," a palace insider suggested.

Prince William and Kate Middleton are reportedly being given a “higher” royal role than Prince Charles and Camilla enjoyed, a royal expert has claimed.

The Prince of Wales is reportedly keen to tighten The Firm’s ranks once he comes to power and implement a “slimmed down” monarchy.

He wants to assemble a team of senior royals to cut costs, it has been claimed.

Others have anticipated a much greater role for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Royal writer Andrew Lownie, author of Traitor King: The Scandalous Exile of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, believes Will will have greater responsibilities than his dad did.

He told Express.co.uk: “We’re in a period of what can be called a soft regency, in effect the Queen is standing back, not doing many roles.

“The roles that she is doing are being accompanied by Prince Charles, everyone is being prepared for Charles and Camilla.

“As a result, William and Kate, who seem to be very popular, are stepping into the position that Charles and Camilla had.

The author also praised the Queen’s response to the departure of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from the Royal Family.

He said the younger generation of royals like William and Kate had returned some of the monarchy’s positive sheen.

Mr Lownie added: “They’ve stepped up to the mark and saved it, if they hadn’t been up to the job then we would have been in real trouble.

“But fortunately they did correct the ship of state and we’re fine now.”
