Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, has often received praise from royal watchers for the reserved and dignified approach she takes to her duties as the wife of a future king. However, the Duchess of Cambridge has not been immune to accusations from some quarters of being too “robotic” or lacking in personality. A Channel 5 Documentary ‘Royal Traditions’ has now provided an insight into Kate’s true personality from those who know her best.

Royal expert Emily Andrews told the programme producers that the Duchess of Cambridge “has a wicked sense of humour” but feels the need to keep it under wraps.

Ms Andrews said: “I get to see them privately at royal drink receptions.

“She has actually got a wicked sense of humour.

“But I don’t think that Kate feels that she can ever let that show publically because that is not what is really expected of her as the wife of a future monarch.”

It comes as another royal commentator said Kate has been “terrified of doing anything controversial” throughout her years on the royal frontline.

Biographer Ingrid Seward has dismissed claims that Kate is “boring”, and instead suggested she is just “terrified” of any public backlash.

Ms Seward explained: “Some think she needs a little more personality but I think she is terrified.

Kate first started dating her now-husband Prince William in 2003, but they did not wed until 2011.

The former press secretary to the Queen, Dickie Arbiter also said the heightened use of social media has increased caution among the royals.

He said: “Anything you do can be instantly reported on and pictured uploaded so you have to be very careful; any body movement can be misconstrued, a cough is bronchitis, a sneeze is flu, a scratch is scurvy.

“There is a very great danger, particularly amongst the royals.

“They have to be very careful of what they do, what they say, where they are and how they do it because it can get reported on very quickly, it can very quickly go viral.”

However, this royal wariness of being criticised in public is not a new concern.

Ms Seward added that Prince Charles, for example, was “extremely nervous” during Princess Diana’s funeral procession back in 1997.

He allegedly feared that he would be a target as “public enemy number one” after his ex-wife died in a car crash — the heir thought many blamed him for the failure of his marriage.
