The insider says that Kate “keeps her head down” and that she ultimately works towards the goal of becoming queen.
Speaking to Tatler magazine for their cover, the insider says that even those in the royal circle say they don’t really know her.
They said: ” In many ways, it’s hard to get a real feel for the real Duchess of Cambridge – if determined, she seems to project an aura of madness as part of her royal personality.
“When I approach the subject, I hear the same feelings from others, from royal initiates to figures in society:” I just don’t know who she is. ”
“A member of the young royal ensemble said,” I have spent a lot of time with Kate and she is impenetrable. There is nothing to love or hate. ‘ “
However, the friend claims that Kate has a “ruthless survival sequence,” which is why she is so well suited to life in the royal family.
They said, “She keeps her head down because the price of the queen is so great. She models herself on the queen and now speaks like the queen. “
In the interview, the friend also claims to know the reason for rumors of fallout between Kate and Meghan Markle in the run-up to the royal Sussex wedding in May 2018.
It has been reported that Kate, who had just given birth to Prince Louis, was in terms after an argument over a bridesmaid dress fitting for Princess Charlotte.
Insiders said last year that the bridesmaid dress was a “stressful” and very moving event.
A source told The Daily Telegraph: “Kate had just given birth to her third child, Prince Louis, and was feeling very emotional.”
The royal aides did not deny that the incident took place, one claiming that Meghan and Kate are “very different people”.
Speaking to Tatler, the boyfriend said, “It was a hot day and apparently there was an argument over whether the bridesmaids should wear tights or not.
“Kate, following the protocol, felt they should. Meghan didn’t want them to do it. “
The bridesmaids of marriage, including Princess Charlotte, wore no tights that day – suggesting that Meghan won the line.

The friend claims that Kate has “flawless manners.”
They continued, “In the palace, you hear many stories from staff saying that this or that is a nightmare and behaves badly, but you never hear about Kate.
“Kate keeps her staff, unlike Meghan. Doesn’t that say everything? “
