Kate Middleton ‘leader of the family’ at Wimbledon with William ‘over-awed’

The Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton, has staked her claim as “leader of the family” with her actions during Wimbledon, an expert has claimed.

Kate was seen taking a leading role throughout the final few days of the stellar tennis tournament, from being spotted parenting her two children in the Royal box, to helping with the winner's presentations for the men's and women's finals.

And according to a top behavioural analyst, the way she handled herself shows that she is ready to become the “leader” of the Royal Family.

Speaking to The Mirror, Judi James said that Kate showed herself to be the “true Queen of Wimbledon” as she was seen “stepping up into her very high profile regal leadership and hosting role”.

She said: “She was very much the leader of her small family group too, hosting and coaching Charlotte and George while William stepped back to gaze on proudly using body language like a ‘fig leaf’ hand clasp barrier in front of the torso that made him look a little like an over-awed child himself.

“It looked like ‘bring your children to work’ day for Kate, who hosted with an impressive firmness, introducing Charlotte and George by name to the players and staff she was meeting and indulging in some lengthy explanations and instructions to her son and daughter that suggested she is now taking a huge role in preparing them for royal life.

“William took a more low-key role but when he did chat to the children he received flatteringly intense signals of attention and affection from Kate, who seemed determined to bring him into the group via smiles and eye attention rituals of encouragement.”

This was not Kate's first trip to Wimbledon, but it was her first leading role at the tournament.

In previous years, Prince William has been the one to take the leading role, but he took a step back at this year's event.
