In the documentary The Queen at 90, the Queen’s daughter-in-law, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, said: “She needs to stand out for people to be able to say ‘I saw the Queen.'”
“Don’t forget that when she turns up somewhere, the crowds are two, three, four, 10, 15 deep, and someone wants to be able to say they saw a bit of the Queen’s hat as she went past," Sophie added.
Reports surfaced earlier this week that the Duchess of Cambridge has been making enquiries into hiring her own public relations team in London to help her grab back the spotlight from sister-in-law Kate Middleton, sources told the Straight Shuter, Naughty but Nice podcast.
“Kate fought hard to get to where she is, and she isn’t about to give up without a fight,” noted one insider. “She likes Meghan, but she knows that she is going to have to step up her game to compete and is looking at different options.”
“Kate wants to create her own team, people that she hires and doesn’t share with anyone else in the family,” continued the source, who also added that Kate no longer wants to do her own hair and make-up and is looking to hire a ‘glam team’ and stylists to give her look an overhaul.
