The public must maintain the perception that royalty is nigh immortal, royal expert says.
Kate Middleton is currently grappling with the immense pressure to uphold the image of unwavering strength and resilience amidst her battle with cancer. The demands placed on her by the royal monarchy are a stark reminder that members of the royal family are expected to be almost immortal in their public persona, standing tall and strong regardless of personal struggles.

The expectation stems from the impressive longevity of previous royals. Queen Elizabeth II lived to be 96, Prince Philip reached 99, and the Queen Mother enjoyed her favorite gin and Dubonnets until her passing at the age of 101. These precedents have set a high bar for resilience and fortitude within the royal family.

Royal expert and biographer Christopher Andersen emphasized the critical importance of this unyielding image, explaining to OK!: “The simple truth is that the royal family cannot be whittled down to a precious few without the risk of having it grind to a halt altogether. For over 70 years, the Windsors had longevity on their side-almost to a ridiculous extent.”

Royalty is no country for the weak
Andersen highlighted that the current generation of royals, particularly Prince William and Kate Middleton, are under immense scrutiny to maintain a solid public image. The demand is clear: they must not show weakness in the face of criticism, leaked stories, and personal challenges, including Kate’s illness.

“If either of them starts to wobble, the whole thing can come crashing down. At the moment, Kate is at her most vulnerable. The ground beneath Kate is shifting in major ways. Only time can tell if she can stand strong,” Andersen noted.

Despite her battle with cancer and undergoing chemotherapy, Kate has remained dedicated to her royal duties. She has candidly shared her journey, acknowledging that she has “good days and bad days” and is committed to taking it one day at a time.

Kate stands firm against all odds
Whenever possible, the Princess of Wales makes public appearances, fulfilling her responsibilities as a member of the Royal Family. During events like the Trooping the Colour ceremony, she has shown that she will stand when she can and sit when necessary, balancing her health needs with her royal obligations.

Kate Middleton’s situation serves as a poignant reminder that, despite the superhuman expectations placed on royals, they are human beings facing significant health issues. She continues to fight her battle with dignity and grace, determined to do what her body allows her to while representing the Royal Family.
