“Princess Kate Reportedly Irritated by Workload Comparisons within Royal Family”

Princess Kate, the Princess of Wales, reportedly finds the constant comparison of her work engagements to other members of the Royal Family “irritating,” according to a source. In 2023, she participated in 123 Royal Family engagements, but criticism arose regarding the perceived lower number compared to senior members like Princess Anne, who undertook 457 royal duties in support of her brother.

Despite external opinions, Princess Kate has chosen to focus on selected causes close to her heart while simultaneously raising three children. Her engagements range from participating in events like the ‘Dad Walk’ at “Dadvengers” in London, supporting new fathers, to inaugurating the new Children’s Day Surgery Unit at St Thomas’ Hospital.

The source highlighted that the official numbers don’t reflect the extensive planning and design work Princess Kate contributes to the public programs. The source stated, “Like her husband, she is deep in the reeds of the planning, something which isn’t reflected in the number of engagements undertaken each year. It’s irritating.”

As Princess Kate’s role in the monarchy expands, there are suggestions of a “birthday promotion” on her upcoming 42nd birthday on January 9. The potential promotion could involve King Charles appointing her as a Royal Lady of the Order of the Garter, the oldest and most senior Order of Chivalry in Britain. This move would symbolize her seniority within The Firm and would be a personal choice by the monarch, aligning her with other esteemed figures like Queen Camilla, Princess Anne, and Princess Alexandra.

Despite her commitment to royal duties, Princess Kate continues to prioritize her role as a mother to her three children, emphasizing the importance of balancing her personal and public responsibilities.
