Kate Middleton Is Terrified About Queen Elizabeth’s Declining Health

Kate Middleton

Oh, I just feel for Kate Middleton with this one. It’s never easy trying to get along with your in-laws and even though the Duchess has done her best to try and please Queen Elizabeth any way that she can, it looks like she is about to face her biggest test when it comes to the Queen and her place in the royal family.

Apparently, Queen Elizabeth’s days are numbered which has got Kate Middleton not only worried for her health, but super stressed as well. At 88-years-old, the Queen knows she won’t be around forever which means Kate has to start stepping up her game, BIG time.

According to the Globe Magazine, Queen Elizabeth recently briefed Kate on her ailing health, leaving it to her as the sole female public figure of the monarchy (because let’s face it, when is the last time we’ve seen Camilla Parker Bowles make any worthy headlines?). The news has gotten Kate so stressed, that she’s said to be drained by all of the changes that are going to be made soon, now that the Queen is cutting back on her responsibilities.  An insider said:

Queen Elizabeth called Kate before the World War I Memorial Event at The Tower of London earlier this month and confessed that her health has deteriorated even more. Apparently, the Queen’s medical team has once again suggested that she cut back her royal duties due to her failing health. Instead of public appearances the queen has been ordered to rest her failing body and it’s a decision that she has made peace with. 

That makes sense since it seems like the Duchess, along with Princes William and Harry, is making most of the royal family’s public appearances these days, right? Still, it’s never easy losing a family member. Even with their differences, at the end of the day Queen Elizabeth is still Prince William’s grandmother and an important person in her life.

So, with all the criticism Kate’s so far gotten for being a “Dull Duchess,” it looks like she’s really going to have to prove herself now that the Queen is slowly leaving the picture. I mean, both her husband and her 1-year-old son are the future Kings of England. If that doesn’t put on the pressure to perform, than I don’t know what will!

Do you think Kate needs to step up her game when it comes to her duties in the royal palace?

When she married William she knew that she
Would be in the public eye. If she doesn't want to be in the public eye then divorce William. They really should have lived there for awhile before they
Spent all of that money. Kate remember you were a commoner 4 years ago.
