Expert Claims Kate Middleton Treats Prince William Like a Fourth Child in Their Marriage
According to Tom Quinn, author of Gilded Youth: An Intimate History of Growing Up in the Royal Family, the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton is not without its imperfections. However, the couple has managed to maintain a strong and successful marriage while upholding their reputation and fulfilling their professional duties.
As Prince William is set to become the future monarch after King Charles III’s coronation, he and Kate Middleton have been diligently preparing for their roles from the very beginning. Despite the pressures and expectations placed upon them, they have become beloved and popular figures within the royal family. Here’s how Kate Middleton handles her relationship with Prince William in their long-term marriage.
Quinn reveals that Kate treats her husband in a similar manner as she does with their three children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. A source close to Quinn, who worked in Kensington Palace, claimed that Kate treats William like a fourth child due to his occasional tantrums. However, instead of resorting to destructive behavior, the couple engages in mild arguments where cushions are playfully thrown at each other. The conflicts are always kept under control.
Quinn suggests that the couple has adopted the mantra of Queen Elizabeth II, “Never complain, never explain,” which has been instrumental in their success. Prince William has taken after his grandmother in adopting a similar approach, while Kate Middleton excels at not complaining. This strategy has helped them navigate their marriage and public life.
The royal author also notes that Kate and William rarely complain, and even when they do, it is done in a measured and controlled manner. Their ability to handle conflicts with maturity and discretion has contributed to the stability of their relationship.
Despite the challenges they face as public figures and future leaders, Prince William and Kate Middleton have found a way to nurture their marriage while fulfilling their royal duties. Their commitment to each other and their shared values has been key to their enduring bond.
