Ttechnically, Kate Middleton is now the new Princess of Wales like the late Princess Diana was in her hour. This is the new title that King Charles III bestowed upon her and his eldest son, who is the new Prince of Wales. A title that goes to the direct person who is next in the line of succession for the British Crown.
Part of the younger generation of Royal fans who didn’t have a full experience of Princess Diana’s mystique are the ones willing to strip her from her monk and give it to Kate. She was known as the ‘People’s Princess’ due to how relatable and approachable she was with everybody. Kate Middleton doesn’t seem as approachable as Princess Diana was in her day, but the fans are still determined to grant her the moniker.
Who named Diana the ‘People’s Princess’?
Back in the late ’90s, former minister Tony Blair paid tribute to Princess Diana right after her tragic passing from a car crash. He was the one who dubbed her as the ‘People’s Princess‘. This same unofficial title is getting thrown around easily by fans who perhaps don’t understand the significance of it.
On the day Prince William and Kate visited Sandringham to look at all the Queen‘s floral tributes, the Royal fans started calling her that on social media. But their reasons might be different than the reasons Princess Diana was called by that moniker. It’s not even a contest between the two.
Fans started pointing that Princess Catherine’s class, elegance, beauty and devotion to duty all rolled into one. But they are missing the part where Middleton appears approachable to everybody. But what do you think? Do you agree with this moniker passing from Princess Diana row Kate Middleton?
