Fans Are Obsessed With Kate Middleton’s Unpolished Look in This Never-Before-Seen Photo
Amid Megxit, and the older generation of royals going into isolation amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has stepped up to the plate. Along with Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge has become one of the main faces of the British royal family. From Zoom calls to showcasing her appreciation for the National Health Service (NHS), Kate has tackled her more centered role effortlessly.
In fact, there has been a great deal of talk about how the duchess has stepped up to the plate in recent years. Early on in her marriage to Prince William, the duchess was lambasted for not doing enough and not having enough ambition. However, after seeing her sister-in-law, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex take on a tireless schedule from the beginning, it seems that the duchess’ approach to royal life has come into focus.
Now, royal fans are delighting in a never-before-seen laidback photo of the duchess, proving she’s just as approachable as ever.
Kate Middleton has had time to master her approach to royal life
Though she was dubbed “Waity Katy” since she and Prince William dated for nearly a decade before getting married, the prince gifted his wife with the chance to ease into life as a royal. The late Princess Diana and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex did not have this luxury.
“She knows the importance of the institution and her role to play,” an insider told People. “She knows that being a member of the royal family is a bit like having a contract, you sign on the dotted line and you deliver Kate is in her element right now, she’s really stuck at it and persevered with what she believes in.”
Kate Middleton is extremely low maintenance
These days, the Duchess of Cambridge is focused on early childhood development and education. But fans don’t just adore her for her love of children. They also admire her because she is low maintenance when it comes to approaching royal life.
“She applies her own makeup (which she is never seen without) before engagements, using Bobbi Brown soft-brown eyebrow pencil on her shaped brows and gel liner for her kohl-rimmed eyes,” royal expert Katie Nicholl told Vanity Fair. “She occasionally visits the Peter Jones department-store cosmetics counter, where she chats with the sales assistants and tries out the latest products.”
In fact, a recent photo of Kate shows just how low-key she can be, even when she’s in the spotlight.

Recently, the Duchess of Cambridge shared a never-before-seen photo of herself preparing for the 2019 Chelsea Flower Show on Instagram. Though the show was unfortunately canceled this year due to the pandemic, Kate is encouraging people to explore the great outdoors while social distancing.
“In recent years I have focussed much of my work on the early years, and how instrumental they are for outcomes later in life,” the duchess revealed last year. “I believe that spending time outdoors when we are young can play a role in laying the foundations for children to become happy, healthy adults.”
In the photo, the duchess is wearing muddy jeans, a creased shirt, gloves, and a mussed ponytail. Fans cannot get over the duchess’ laid back look. One fan wrote, “Future Queen doing everything right! <3.” Another commented, “Only the duchess can make gardening look so regal, honestly.” A third fan said, “Lovely! Kate hs really blossomed into her role.”
