London, Dec 6 (IANS) Prince William’s fiancee Kate Middleton is expected to play a prominent role in the Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012.
‘After her marriage in April (2011), Kate will really start to sort out her future role. The queen and Camilla will take an active interest and offer advice,’ femalefirst.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
‘The plan is for Kate to help pep up the Jubilee’s youthful and glamorous face, while also underlining the continuity of the monarchy.’
Although 28-year-old’s inclusion in the celebrations to mark the monarch’s 60-year reign was Queen Elizabeth’s idea, it is believed both William and Kate are delighted to have the opportunity to prove her credentials.
Kate has been criticised in the past for her lack of direction after she quit a job at fashion chain Jigsaw to work for her parents’ party planning company.
‘Kate is keen to dispel the image of her being workshy and William believes that he can make the public see her as he does: as a caring woman of substance,’ the source added.
