    A royal expert has claimed that Kate Middleton has the power to “genuinely change millions of lives” in her role as the Princess of Wales.

    Daniela Esler, a royal writer for Australian news outlet news.com.au, said in a comment piece that the princess’ work in gathering experts to understand children’s development between pregnancy and the age of five was “ambitious and progressive”.

    It is “the sort of forward-thinking that has the power to genuinely change millions of lives in the future”, she added.

    She said Kate’s work comes from the idea that supporting families in the “crucial” time before school can dramatically reduce rates of mental illness, addiction and homelessness in the future.

    Elser said she recognised that Kate’s work isn't going to be glamorous and said: “There are no short-term, made-for-the-cameras PR wins, and all those preschool photo ops guarantee the inevitably of getting finger paint on one’s favourite McQueen trousers."

    Despite this, the Princess of Wales said that the work that Kate and her husband, Prince William, are doing were “no small potatoes”.

    As a royal, Kate is patron to more than 20 charities and military organisations, including several children’s hospitals and mental health charities.

    Elser's comments come as tributes have poured in for Queen Elizabeth II's most mischievous friend, who sadly passed away last week.

    Lady Rupert Nevill, 97, was known as 'Micky' by close friends (including Her Majesty) and helped the monarch go incognito in public from time to time.

    Born Camilla Wallop, she was the daughter of the 9th Earl of Portsmouth and had known the Queen since they were kids.
