    The Cambridges are undoubtedly the most talked-about family in the world, and following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s exit from the royal family, it’s hardly surprising that Prince William and Kate Middleton are making even more news.

    It was the pandemic and subsequent lockdown that really elevated the Cambridge couple however, with Kate and Wills stepping into the forefront, opening up about homeschooling their children, applauding NHS workers on their doorstep with neighbours and making sweet phone calls to NHS staff to boost morale.

    The Duchess of Cambridge has made news in particular, from Kate’s parenting style to her classic book collection, revealed from the sneak peek she gave into her office.

    It’s Kate’s relationship with Prince William that made headlines recently however, with a royal expert explaining how based on their lockdown activity, the Duchess is clearly the boss in their relationship.

    Royal expert Angela Mollard was talking on the ROYALS podcast about Prince William and Kate Middleton’s Zoom video calls with key workers, something that the couple have been praised for, showing their relatable side.

    Opening up about the call, Angela Mollard explained how Kate ‘led the conversation’ rather than her husband, stating: ‘I love how Kate took charge on the call, introducing both of them. It gave you an insight into what she must be like at home.’

    Going on to call the Duchess of Cambridge ‘supremely organised’, Angela continued: ‘I think she’s the boss in the relationship. She sort of led the conversation, but in a nice way.’

    These two!
