Kate Middleton Accidentally Shared Her Most Used Emojis and They Are Super Revealing

2020 has brought some unprecedented changes to everyone across the globe. Even the British royal family has had to adjust to the new restrictions that the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has placed on us as a society. With Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles isolated, for the most part, Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, have stepped in to fill in the gap.

Now that Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex have left their royal roles for a new life in California, the Cambridges have taken on more royal duties, headlining virtual and in-person events.

Kate, in particular, has stepped forward to play a major role as the future Queen Consort. However, a recent glimpse at her phone shows that she might not be as reserved as everyone might assume.

A glimpse into Kate Middleton’s personality

While Meghan and the late Princess Diana were thrust into their royal roles, Kate has been able to take her time and adjust to life in the spotlight. She dated Prince William for nearly 10 years before they wed. Also, even after their wedding and having Prince George, Kate was able to take on limited engagements.

Though she has a much more intensive schedule now, Kate is just now being more vocal. Royal author Victoria Murphy explained to Yahoo UK,

I’ve always thought that Kate has more in common personality-wise with the Queen; not an extrovert, but quietly self-assured with a love of the outdoors and the ability to compartmentalize. I think she still remains more of a team player than a leader though and perhaps more of a listener than a talker, but I think these qualities are well-suited to her current and future role.

Kate Middleton has a very traditional approach to royal life

Since she has followed in Queen Elizabeth’s footsteps in many ways, Kate has learned a very traditional approach to royal life. Royal commentator Rupert Bell explained via Express, “In a way, Kate is a traditional, English rose as it were.”

Though they aren’t “old-fashioned” in any way, Kate and William’s approach to their royal roles will help keep them solid for years to come. “They have different roles, but they come together as a team,” a royal insider explained to People. “They are a great double act. People make much of William giving the big speeches, but Kate is there too, asking questions of presidents and their wives. These things are easier when they are side-by-side.”

Kate Middleton’s most used emojis reveal who she really is

Still, there are certain aspects of Kate’s personality that she reserves for her close friends and loved ones. During a video call to discuss her “Early Years” project, Kate accidentally flashed her iPhone on camera, showcasing her recently-used emojis.

According to She Knows, the emojis included cucumber and pineapple, the “woman exhausted” emoji, which looks like a woman bowing. Still, most interesting, it looks like the duchess often uses the cursing emoji, which is the red emoji with the bleeped out mouth.

It seems that though Kate maintains a picture of poise in public, she’s human with genuine feelings who isn’t afraid to express herself behind closed doors.
