Kate Middleton is set to become a Queen Consort should Prince William finally take over the throne from Prince Charles. The Duchess of Cambridge has caught the hearts of many not only because of her beauty but also due to her classy personality and undeniable love for sports.
While many people look up to her, Kate Middleton has also faced numerous issues such as her alleged spat with Meghan Markle over Princess Charlotte’s dress during the Sussex wedding in 2018. The wife of Prince Harry, in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, confirmed that Kate got upset and it made her cry. The former Suits actress made it clear, however, that Kate apologized to her even before she and Harry departed the U.K.
Now, recent reports suggested that Kate Middleton “reached out” to Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice to talk about her taking over the role of Prince Andrew in the Grenadier Guards. Keep on reading to know more details.
Kate Middleton Talked With Princess Eugenie And Princess Beatrice About Prince Andrew’s Role?
Royal expert Neil Sean, as per Express UK, claimed that Kate Middleton did reach out to the daughters of Sarah Ferguson to talk about Prince Andrew’s role in the Grenadier Guards.
Talking on his official YouTube channel, Neil shared:
"She is mulling it over and there are good reasons why. She doesn't really want to be seen hurting anyone's feelings and she had a very lengthy chat with someone very close to Prince Andrew because he does appear that the world is kicking him while he's down. There's nothing more embarrassing than bumping into family members like Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie at an official function knowing that you've taken a post of which their father truly enjoyed being part of. What I am told is that she reached out to Eugenie and Beatrice and asked their thoughts. She has the support of Prince William but is she does take it, she will be making history."
At the moment, Queen Elizabeth holds the role of Colonel, which Prince Andrew vacated amid the investigations of his alleged involvement with the Jeffrey Epstein scandal. Her Majesty is projected to make new appointments in the coming days.
An unnamed senior source in the Guards, reportedly, said to The Sunday Times:
“From straw polling through the ranks, they would all love it to be Kate. We all admire the way she has fitted in and behaved. She never seems to put a foot wrong. The name of the new colonel was due to have been announced and it wasn’t the Duchess of Cambridge. That it wasn’t announced means they’ve been thinking about it again.”

To recall, Buckingham Palace released a statement earlier this month, announcing that all of Prince Andrew’s Royal patronages and affiliations have been returned to Queen Elizabeth. The statement read:
"With The Queen's approval and agreement, The Duke of York’s military affiliations and Royal patronages have been returned to The Queen. The Duke of York will continue not to undertake any public duties and is defending this case as a private citizen."
Us Weekly correspondents Christine Ross and Christina Garibaldi discussed how Kate Middleton may sport a military uniform if she is confirmed to take on Prince Andrew’s previous role.

Talking on Royally Us, Christine shared:
"They have gone as far as to request it unofficially. It will be really interesting to see if Kate steps into this role. It is a military role, but it is slightly more ceremonial. We might even see her in a military uniform, which we have seen from other members of the Royal Family, like Princess Anne and Prince William. They have special ceremonial uniforms for the work Kate would do for them. It would be a fantastic role for her and it sounds like they are really keen to have her."
Kate Middleton, Princess Eugenie, and Princess Beatrice have yet to comment on the claims about them having a “lengthy” chat about Prince Andrew’s former role. So, devoted supporters of the royal family should take all these unverified reports lightly until everything is proven true and correct.

Kate Middleton Warned Over Quandaries Of Being Queen Consort?
Meanwhile, King George VI, per another Express UK report, indirectly warned Kate Middleton and Camilla Parker-Bowles over the tough life of being a consort. The former King of the United Kingdom allegedly projected the difficulty that Prince Philip was to face after taking the consort role after tying the knot with the then-Princess Elizabeth.
The late king reportedly claimed that the job of being a consort “is much harder” than being a king. An unidentified guest reportedly heard King George VI say:
"I wonder if Philip knows what he is taking one. One day Lilibet will be queen and he will be consort. That’s much harder than being a king, but I think he’s the man for the job."
In present times, Prince Charles is Queen Elizabeth’s heir apparent, which means Camilla Parker-Bowles would soon be a Queen consort. Should the Prince of Wales decide to abdicate and let Prince William take over the throne, Kate will eventually be known as Queen consort as well.
