However, there was one person, who wasn’t particularly happy about their union and it was William’s grandmother. The Queen believed that Kate was not a good match for her grandson because she had no proper job and no personal ‘identity.’

But as it turned out, Her Majesty had more concerns than just that. Apparently, she wasn’t pleased with the lifestyle Middleton was leading.

Disapproving royal

A royal biographer Kate Nicholl believes that the Queen harshly criticized Kate for her lifestyle that she led before marrying William, which made the future Duchess very upset.

Her Majesty thought that it is inappropriate for the future royal to frivolously display their wealth. At that time, Kate shared a flat in an expensive part of London with her younger sister, Pippa.

The Middleton sisters liked to go clubbing and holidaying to the Caribbean, which earned Kate the nickname ‘Queen of Mustique'.

Nicholl claimed:

If Kate was not with William at Balmoral then the couple were skiing or holidaying on Mustique. Britain was now in recession and such frivolous displays of wealth were unpalatable to the Queen.

Kate had to swallow the Queen’s remark and, as history shows, the royal wedding happened anyway. With time, Her Majesty warmed up to her new daughter-in-law. Moreover, the monarch grew to love one particular quality that Kate has – her strong family values.

This character trait along with the fact that the Duchess never tries to gather extra attention, in the sovereign’s eyes will make Kate a good queen in the future.
