Kate Middleton is determined to make a difference in early childhood development. Prince William's wife has devoted her work to this sector. One correspondent advised her to get political for her cause.

Kate Middleton Should Get Political Like Meghan Markle, Prince Harry?

The Princess of Wales announced earlier this year that she had just launched her new project, Shaping Us, an awareness campaign dedicated to shedding light on the importance of early childhood.


Jack Royston, Newsweek's Chief Royal Correspondent based in London, urged the royal to get political with her campaign despite the risks of being criticized by the public.

"Is it maybe time for Kate to possibly just start taking a few measured risks?" Royston said in the Jan. 31 episode of The Royal Report podcast.

"So, what can she actually do?" he continued. "I thought about it and in the end I just kind of thought: 'You know what, maybe she does actually just need to get political.'"

"We always say royals shouldn’t be political, where Harry and Meghan have done it and been criticized for it. Other royals have tried to do it, they’ve been criticized in the past. And maybe she would be criticized but maybe, just maybe, if this is—as Kensington Palace leads us to believe—truly her life’s work where she wants to make a difference, maybe she just needs to do it and take the criticism."

Kate Middleton Will Get Stuck Due To Limited Funding?

Finding Freedom co-author Omid Scobie also weighed in on the possibilities of Kate Middleton promoting Shaping Us without political support in an article for Yahoo News UK. For him, the Duchess of Cambridge "will no doubt find herself stuck" because she has "few options" to fund the campaign.

"If anything, Shaping Us exposes the ineffectiveness that the royal family’s charity work can have. Because it is almost impossible to make an impact in this field, or even usher in the smallest of change, without considering all the social factors that have an impact on early development."

Scobie believed that the campaign won't be effective without "stepping into policy or politics," which is "the one thing Kate can't do as a working member of the royal family."

Is it necessary for Kate Middleton to go political to make a difference in her Shaping Us project?
