Thee Queen Mother ‘would have approved of Kate Middleton’ because she is ‘the real deal,’ a royal expert has claimed.

Former BBC royal correspondent Jennie Bond says The Duchess of Cambridge, 40, is ‘shaping up to be to be the perfect future Queen’.

Speaking to OK! Jennie explained how The Queen Mother, who died aged 101 in 2002, would have approved of her great-grandson’s wife as she is ‘gracious, elegant, committed and dutiful’. 

She explained:  ‘Everyone who spoke to the Queen Mother would say that she gave you the time of day. I say the same about Kate.

Jennie Bond explained how The Queen Mother (pictured in 1990),  who died aged 101 in 2002, would have approved of her great-grandson’s wife as she is ‘gracious, elegant, committed and dutiful’.

‘She gives the impression of being fully engaged and committed to any conversation or engagement, and the Queen Mother was notorious for that. She was so notorious for it, in fact, that she was late for everything!’

Jennie added that Kate and William are similar and that they ‘connect with young people in a way that’s vital for the success and future of the crown’ and have ‘nailed monarchy cool’. 

Jennie’s comments come as The Duchess of Cambridge was praised as  ‘confident’ yet ‘assertive’ during her recent Caribbean tour with Prince William, with experts saying  as she ’emerged as a future Queen’ with as ‘much talent for firm, calm leadership as the current one’.

William and Kate’s charm offensive mark the Queen ‘s Platinum Jubilee has been beset with controversy and helped reignite for republican calls in Jamaica for complete independence from Britain.

However throughout the tour, body language expert Judi James said the mother-of-three had appeared as a Queen-in-waiting.

Judi explained: ‘William and Kate’s professional and emotional double-act has probably never looked stronger than it does on this tour and it is a testament to both of them that Kate’s signals of power and signs of leadership have been revealed openly and with what looks like a welcome response from her husband.’

Speaking to FEMAIL, the expert explained how the Duchess has taken the lead on the international trip, proving herself to be ‘much more than a mere consort’ to the Duke, 39.

Judi explained: ‘It would be hard to over-emphasise the version of Kate we have been seeing during this royal tour and how vital her impact is going to be on the dynamic of the Firm in the future.

‘The ‘Waitey Katie’ tag has taken a long time to shrug off, as have the suggestions that Kate is bland and rather passive. 

‘Kate has been a slow mover in terms of royal profile and positioning, adopting a cautious, ‘steady as she goes’ approach to her role, avoiding change and drama, rather than rocking the royal boat but the body language of both Kate and William on this tour appears to show how they both finally recognise that she can now be launched as her fun, daring, extrovert and even seriously flirtatious self.

‘Like everything about Kate, the signs have been relatively subtle but here’s what we are now being informed via non-verbal signals about the woman who will one day be Queen.’
