With more and more social engagements in her kitty, the Duchess of Cambridge is gaining in confidence and carrying out her official duties with amazing aplomb. Yesterday, as she walked side-by-side the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh as part of the Royals’ first official Diamond Jubilee UK tour to Leicester, the young Duchess looked the very picture of poise and radiance.
However, what the world probably does not know is that behind’s warm smile is hidden her deep anguish. The Duchess of Cambridge is said to have admitted to missing her better half of nearly one year, Prince William, “terribly.” Don’t believe this … well then read this disclosure.
This is what the 30-year-old, madly in love brunette disclosed to a bystander, Laura Murphy at Leicester. It is a well known fact that the Duke of Cambridge is presently on tour of duty as a search-and-rescue pilot in the South Atlantic. Kate Middleton's comments about her husband came after she had attended a church service along with the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh.
A well-wisher Laura Murphy, 30 who was standing amongst the crowds outside Leicester Cathedral to meet the royals, managed to speak to Kate and asked her "How's William?" To which the Duchess replied straight-forwardly "he's fine - I'm missing him terribly." Probably, she just could not stop herself from adding that last bit about Prince William.
By the way, this is not the first time that Kate has bemoaned about how much she misses her husband Prince William when they are away from each other. In February, New Magazine had reported that Kate had blurted her heart out to a navy pilot’s wife telling her: “I don’t know how you manage. I miss William so much when he goes away… He went once for four weeks and I missed him so much.”
However, even if the royal couple is almost 8,000 miles away from each-other, in no way seem to have dampened the couple's romantic ardour one bit, on Valentine’s Day. Kate had then let out shyly in public that her husband had sent her a lovely card along-with a bouquet of lovely flowers.
Meanwhile in Leicester the Duchess also told Murphy that she was “being well looked after” in her husband's absence. According to Murphy the Duchess ‘was really smiley. Really happy.' The Duchess said Murphy, than shook her hand and finding it damp told her she was cold. To which Murphy replied that she had been waiting there for the royals since 9 am.
The Queen of England with her husband and Duchess Catherine landed in Leicester by train; touring De Montford University after which they visited the city’s famed Cathedral for the first time. Every where the royals went there were cheering crowds greeting them and waving union flags at them.
