Kate Middleton faces huge year ahead supporting Queen for jubilee in royal role

Kate Middleton is set for a huge year ahead, as she looks to cement herself in the role of a future Queen by the supporting the monarch during her Platinum Jubilee.

The Duchess of Cambridge's role is expected to become more prominent with the Cambridges possibly embarking on a major royal tour.

Kate kicks off the year by celebrating her own 40th birthday this weekend on Sunday, January 9.

A new photo of the royal is expected to be released, with a source telling the Mail on Sunday that celebrations will be “low-key”.

Royal astrologer Debbie Frank, who was a close friend of Princess Diana, has predicted that The Duchess of Cambridge is “ready to shine her light particularly bright” during the Platinum Jubilee year.

The official weekend of celebrations begins on Thursday, June 2, running until Sunday, Jun 5.

With Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepping down from their royal duties, and possibly not even making it to the UK for the special event, it is thought that Kate will play a very prominent role for her 95-year-old grandmother-in-law's big event.

The jubilee celebrations also falls in the same year when Prince William's Earthshot Prize awards ceremony takes place in America, which could spark a first royal tour for the couple for more than two years.

There are additional rumours of trips to a Commonwealth country such as Canada or Australia, The Mirror reports.

According to Russell Myers, speaking to The Mirror's Pod Save The Queen podcast, there will be something the Cambridges do as “a family, together”.

He said: “I can't imagine that William and Kate would want to leave the children at home for let's say 10 days to two weeks.

“So if they are to go on tour, it is a distinct possibility we might see them all together and the added benefit of it being the Platinum Jubilee year, when all focus will be on celebrating the Queen, I think it is good to have the Cambridges out there as a family as well.”

Kate ended 2021 in a far more prominent, media-friendly role than most royals. She even took to the piano during a special Christmas concert, alongside singer Tom Walker in the Chapter House of Westminster Abbey.
