Kate Middleton Has Her Own Royal Squad and You Won’t Believe Who’s in It!
In 2011, the world witnessed an epic real-life fairytale wedding when Prince William married Kate Middleton. Their love gave hope to many people that happily-ever-after does exist in the real world. After all Kate’s journey from a commoner to an important member of the royal family (and even future queen) is nothing short of inspiring. But some royal fans are also curious how the Duchess is adjusting well to her duties and responsibilities as a noble.
Where does she get her emotional support in times when she’s stressed or overwhelmed? Does she have a trustworthy friend to confide her deepest darkest secrets in? It turns out Kate is still in touch with her old friends from university days. Let’s take a closer look at Kate’s royal entourage and see who’s supporting the Duchess behind the scenes.
Last January, the royal couple was photographed heading to a local church in Sandringham. There was nothing unusual about the Duke and Duchess’ appointment. However, the public was appalled to see some of Kate’s friends trailing behind them. It seems some of the Duchess’ confidants, Lady Laura Meade together with her husband James Meade as well as David and Emilia Jardine-Peterson were with the royal couple.
Lady Laura serves as Prince Louis‘ godmother, while her husband became the best man and delivered a heartfelt speech at William and Kate’s wedding. Meanwhile, Emilia is Prince George’s godmother and Kate’s closest confidant. Even when the Duke and Duchess were enjoying their winter vacation in Norfolk, the couple made sure to spend their first Sunday church service of the year with their close confidants.
Lady Laura and James Meade
Formerly known as Laura Marsham, Lady Laua Meade is the daughter of the 8th Earl of Romney. She wed James Meade in 2013 who’s also the best friend of Prince William. The Duke of Cambridge also returned the favor to become the best man for his best friend’s wedding. Laura’s husband, James, also became Princess Charlotte’s godfather.
James is the son of an Olympic three-day eventer, Richard Meade. He became friends with Prince William since the two attended the same college back in 2000. James and Laura live near the Anner Hall so that they can spend more time with William and Kate who have an official country home in Norfolk.
Emilia became Kate’s classmate while attending at Marlborough College and the pair has developed a tight-knit friendship ever since. She even accompanied Kate as they went on a holiday to Ibiza while the latter was mending her broken heart over her brief split with William in 2007.
Sophie also hails as one of the Duchess’ closest and most trusted friends, so much that Kate personally chose her to become Princess Charlotte’s godmother. She also lives close in Anmer Hall together with the Meade family.
Kate and Sophie have attended numerous events together in Norfolk including Prince Harry and Meghan‘s wedding. The best friends were also inseparable at Pippa Middleton’s royal wedding. Sophie has even been spotted vacationing with the royal family on many occasions. In 2016, she joined the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their skiing vacation.
