In a previously unseen video from Prince William and Kate Middleton's trip to Wales during Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee weekend, Kate opened up about her future as the Princess of Wales.

During their walkabout in Cardiff, Wales, a royal fan tells Kate, "You’re going to make a brilliant Princess of Wales." Kate replies, "That’s very kind. I’m in good hands," gesturing to her husband Prince William.

Upon Charles's marriage to Diana in 1981, Diana became Princess of Wales. However, Charles's second wife, Camilla, does not choose to use the Princess of Wales title due to the popular association with Diana—instead, she goes by the title of Duchess of Cornwall. However, it is widely expected Kate will use the title Princess of Wales when Charles becomes King.

Throughout her tenure in the royal family, Kate has paid tribute to her late mother-in-law. She inherited some of Diana's jewelry, and frequently wears Diana's jewels on royal engagements. Recently, she wore Princess Diana's sapphire and diamond earrings to Trooping the Colour. Before Diana's tragic death, she wrote a "letter of wishes" that stated: " I would like you to allocate all my jewellery to the share to be held by my sons, so that their wives may, in due course, have it or use it. I leave the exact division of the jewellery to your discretion."

Kate has also channeled Diana's fashion frequently throughout the years, intentionally wearing outfits that recall famous looks of the late princess.
