Kate, Princess of Wales has been lauded by a royal commentator for “pulling off the biggest royal coup” since the Stuarts ascended to the throne in 1603.
This week the Princess carried out a number of engagements drawing attention to her work with children and her dedication to improving early years development, from attending the first ever Children’s Picnic at the Chelsea Flower Show to raising awareness of the experiences of kinship carers, carers who raise the children of close friends or family members and are often not recognised for their hard work and sacrifices.
Royal commentator Daniela Elser wrote: “Kate is not just nailing the dress code but the actual job too.
“Not content to apathetically open things and practise the traditional royal art of ribbon cutting (well, at least not any more), in the last couple of years she has pulled off the biggest royal coup since the Stuarts got to have a go on the throne.
“The Royal Foundation Centre For Early Childhood might sound like some sort of touchy feely kiddie initiative that is high on crayon funding and low on intellectual heft, but its fundamental aim is to tackle homelessness, addiction and mental health in the next generation.
“In the last few months alone, Kate has corralled CEOs from nine global companies for a business task force, launched a UK-wide advertising campaign and found the time to pen an op-ed piece for the Financial Times, the go-to newspaper of presidents, plutocrats and powerbrokers from Belgravia to Bangkok.
“Someone has really been hiding not only their light but a helluva lot of ambition under her designer bushel.
“So, Kate: Strength to strength, nailing it, gold stars all around.”
