Kate Middleton’s first solo interview will be aired for the first time ever this Sunday, and the Duchess will be opening up about a very special subject indeed.
The Duchess of Cambridge was interviewed as part of an ITV programme with the working title ‘The Queen At Ninety’ which will celebrate The Queen’s life and reign, as the monarch prepares to mark her 90th birthday in April.
Kate’s last interview on camera was on the day her engagement to Prince William was announced in 2010. The then 28-year-old was a little shy showing off her ring and sitting in front of the camera, and Prince William did most of the talking, but in this latest interview Kate will face the camera alone for her first ever solo interview.
The now mother-of-two was most animated on camera chatting about her love of family, and so she is sure to share her high opinion of the Queen, and hopefully a few fun anecdotes, during her solo interview for the two-hour programme. Alongside the Duchess of Cambridge, other family members including the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and Prince William, were also interviewed.
As she approaches her milestone birthday, the Queen is expected to hand over some of her many patronages to other members of the royal family. In a bid to cut back on her royal duties and slow down her work schedule as she reaches 90, Prince William, Prince Harry, and the Duchess of Cambridge will all be honoured by the Queen in becoming patrons of some of her charities and sporting institutions.
Due to her love of tennis, the Duchess is expected to become patron of the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club, which hosts Wimbledon every year, and where Kate has often been spotted as a keen spectator.
There will be national celebrations to mark the Queen’s 90th both when she was born on April 21st, and in June for her ‘official’ birthday.
