As the wife of heir to the throne Prince William, Kate Middleton will eventually become queen – and she already knows exactly what will be at the top of her list of priorities.
London – At the coronation of King Charles III (74) and Queen Camilla (75), Prince William (40) and Princess Kate (41) were able to familiarize themselves up close with the ceremony in which they will one day play the leading roles. Heir to the throne, William, will become King of the United Kingdom when Charles dies, unless his father abdicates in favor of his firstborn at some point during his lifetime.

Kate Middleton will then – just like Camilla – become queen, presumably she will then bear the title Queen Catherine, since Catherine is her first name. After more than 20 years at Prince William's side, Princess Kate has already been able to come to terms with this idea in peace. So it is not surprising that the Princess of Wales already knows exactly which topics will be particularly close to her heart as queen.
At London's famous Chelsea Flower Show, Kate Middleton got up close and personal with children from several primary schools who could hardly believe their luck. The Princess of Wales was approachable and had no fear of contact – some children were even allowed to free Kate's hair from a few leaves that had flown in. In addition, Princess Kate was bombarded by the kids with questions, which the wife of the heir to the throne patiently answered. Eleven-year-old Saron Fikremariam told The Mirror: "I asked her what she would do first when she became queen." Kate's answer came as if shot from a pistol.
She said she was going to help children.

Kate Middleton's life is all about children
It is no secret that children play the leading role in the life of the mother of three, both privately and in her role as a member of the British royal family. Kate and William's sons Prince George (9) and Prince Louis (5) and their daughter Princess Charlotte (8) are their pride and joy. This year also saw the launch of Princess Kate's heart project, the "Shaping Us" campaign, which aims to raise awareness of how important the first years of life are for a child's later development.

So it is obvious that Kate Middleton would like to devote herself primarily to the promotion of children as queen in the near or distant future. However, the Princess of Wales did not want to withhold the fact that life as a royal is not always like a fairy tale from her spellbound young listeners at the Chelsea Flower Show. "You have to work hard," says Kate, especially when you're in the spotlight as a future queen like her. Tensions arose with the current queen at the coronation – an angry Kate Middleton refused to curtsy in front of Queen Camilla. Sources used: mirror.co.uk
