Royal biographer Tina Brown claims the future of the Firm rests on the “slim shoulders” of the Duchess of Cambridge. Ms Brown believes that, if Kate was to make an exit from the Firm – much like her sister-in-law Meghan Markle – it would have disastrous consequences for the Royal Family.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down from their roles as senior royals in 2020.
The move, dubbed Megxit, saw Prince Harry and his wife relocate and the pair now reside in the US with their two children Archie, two, and Lilibet, who turns one in June.
The former Vanity Fair editor claims that, if mother-of-three Kate exited the Firm, it would “crumble at the moment without her”.
The author of ‘The Palace Papers: Inside The House Of Windsor – The Truth And The Turmoil’ said in an interview: “If for any reason, she thought like Meghan, ‘I’m out of here, I can do much better,’ it would be a disaster.”
Ms Brown went on to praise the Duchess of Cambridge for her dedication to her royal duties, claiming that other women may not have coped as well as she has with the demands of the job.
The royal author said: “It would, I think, crumble at the moment without her because she’s the only modern, beautiful woman who’s well-educated, substantial in herself, who’s actually wanting to commit herself to the rigours of this institution. Not many young women could do that.”
Kate’s life of service began over a decade ago, following her marriage to Prince William.
