Washington, Feb 1 (ANI): Prince William's choice of wife reportedly has the complete approval of the Queen.
The marriage between the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has drawn many comparisons to that of William's mother, Princess Diana and his father, Prince Charles; a marriage that ended in tragedy with divorce in 1996 and Diana's death in 1997.
However, the Queen appears to have embraced the new addition to her family, Kate.
According to one courtier, at the wedding "she was practically skipping. Seeing her family full of joy but also seeing the public support and excitement touched her greatly."
"She was very supportive of William and Kate leading up to the wedding... and nothing could have reaffirmed more that they have the potential to achieve great things for the monarchy," Contactmusic quoted the source as telling the Mirror.
"The whole of Britain seemed to have turned up to wish them well," the source said.
Although the Duchess of Cambridge had little experience of royal life prior to the marriage, her willingness to learn appears to have kept her on the right side of the Queen.
"She is humble and keen to learn and the Queen likes that. She has grown very fond of her and recognizes the impact she is having on the public," another source said.
The Queen appears to have made an effort to get to know the Duchess' parents too, inviting them to Ascot as her guests last year. (ANI)
