Royal commentator Omid Scobie said that the Duchess of Cambridge’s, 38, has “truly played a more confident role” in The Firm in recent months when she launched her Early Years work that will be a “lifelong project” for the royal woman.
Speak about the heir podcast, he said Kate’s voice grew louder as she gained confidence in her position within the royal family.
He said: “I think there were times when it felt like she wasn’t doing much … and we are now at a point where I think she really realizes the impact she can have if she uses her platform wisely. ”

In the past month, Kate has traveled through the UK to highlight her five major questions about the Under-Fives survey, which aimed to initiate a conversation about creating the best basis for children to thrive.
Omid explained: “[The survey] Kate has really seen a more confident role, we have seen her quietly, in recent months, picking up a little steam. “
The royal expert further said that the duchess now realized the impact when she used her platform, and explained that there were times when it felt like Kate was “not doing much”.
He went on: ‘And this work with the early years, which is a lifelong project for her, she plans to continue with this at least for the next decade.
The royal expert revealed that Kate’s work on early childhood had helped her “step into a more confident role” within The Firm (photo, at the launch of her Early Years survey in January)
“Focusing on the impact of childhood experiences and the perspective of the parents, the perception of the child and the perspective of the caregiver, it is really something important to her.”
The five major questions about The Under-Fives attracted more than 200,000 responses after the launch in January.
The one-month online survey conducted by Ipsos Mori on behalf of Kate’s Royal Foundation is considered the largest survey of its kind and the data will guide the Duchess’s future work.
The Duchess spoke extensively about her survey, while this week she appeared on the Happy Mum Happy Baby podcast by Giovanna Fletcher and said that the project has been “a decent journey” and that she is “excited to talk about it more publicly” .

She said: ‘Since we got married and investigate this, it has become a huge passion – going out and listening to what drives people and also things that unite and struggle with what people face in the early days.
“When you meet people who are struggling with abuse, homelessness and things like that, you are really moved by some of the challenges that people face and it is heartbreaking to hear.
“The more you look at everyone’s experiences, the more many of them go back to the earliest years of a person’s life, and you hear that time and again throughout the nation and the world.
‘You hear the sad reality that actually what experiences you have in childhood have a lifelong impact on your future health and happiness.
The duchess has become passionate about the development in the early years since she has welcomed her own three children (depicted on Trooping the Color with Prince William, Prince Louis, Prince George and Princess Charlotte)
‘I suppose that really aroused my interest to dig deep [into early years]. I have talked to doctors, charities and tried to find out what can be done to prevent social challenges. ”
It comes after royal expert Camilla Tominey claimed that Kate “raised her game” and came out of Prince William’s shadow after Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle’s, 38, decided to step down from their role as senior royals.
Camilla, who appeared this morning this morning, said, “The pressure is really on the Duchess of Cambridge to move the royal family to the future.”
