Kate Middleton had quite a reaction when a dear fan gave her a big compliment.
While she was out in Wales earlier this month on June 4, Kate, 40, and Prince William, 39, paid a visit to Cardiff Castle alongside their children, Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 9, in honor of Queen Elizabeth‘s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
While out and about, the family spoke to fans outside the castle. In a heartfelt moment, a woman shook Kate’s hand and told her, “You’re going to be a brilliant Princess of Wales.”
To which Kate replied, “Oh, that’s very kind.” Gesturing towards William, she added, “I’m in good hands.”
The moment was captured on camera by Twitter user, Hellen3030, who tells the outlet, “The Cambridges are humble and a lovely family. I flew last minute from Miami to attend the Platinum Jubilee and decided to go to Cardiff the day before. I met wonderful people from all over the world wanting to meet them,” she continued.

“We had no idea they were bringing Prince George and Princess Charlotte until later on. Once we met the Cambridges, we were all mesmerized by them. I missed my train back to London and arrived late to the Platinum Party at the Palace, but it was all worth it!”
Kate, who received the title of the Duchess of Cambridge upon her wedding to William in 2011, is set to be known as the Princess of Wales (like her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, before her) when William takes the title of Prince of Wales after his father Prince Charles becomes King.
“Those who know her say there is a real core of strength, and she did set her mind to the job,” Sarah Gristwood, author of Elizabeth: The Queen and the Crown, previously told the outlet. “But at the same time, she’d have to be superhuman not to feel the pressure.”
Kate is expected to fulfill quite a big set of shoes.
“The future Queen is a role model to the U.K. but also to the world, which means all eyes are on you,” says royal etiquette expert Myka Meier, author of Modern Etiquette Made Easy. “The added pressure of having cameras everywhere to catch even the slightest eye movement makes everything she does a conscious effort. From the perfectly poised posture to the way she descends a staircase or gets out of a car—it is all carefully done.”
And like the Queen, Kate is very stoic when under pressure.
“Catherine is the sort of woman who will take on whatever she needs to,” a close source tells the outlet. “If she needs to step up to the plate, she does it—and she always has.”
