Kate Middleton has been praised for being “loyal” to her staff, and will take time to listen to junior members of staff, according to insiders.
This follows claims that Meghan Markle is “difficult and demanding” with her team, and will bombard them with messages at 5 a.m.
A royal insider told The Mail on Sunday’s You magazine that the Duchess of Cambridge, 37, is a reasonable boss.
They said: “She takes the time to listen to ideas from the most junior members in her team.
“Afterwards they’ll say, ‘Wow, she knows my name. She asked me what I thought’. She is also loyal and ‘if you make a mistake will back you regardless’.”
The source added: “She is very clear on her priorities and that values that guide how she lives and works. It’s about treating other people well to get the best out of them.”
Duchess Meghan was previously branded "Duchess Difficult" by Palace insiders after her demands become too much for aides, according to reports.
It came after the Sun revealed how the Duchess of Cambridge told Duchess Meghan not to berate members of her team after she "b—cked" a member of staff.
The row, which has been denied by the Palace, came after we revealed Duchess Meghan made Duchess Kate cry over Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid’s dress.
And the Mail on Sunday previously said that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ignored his PR’s advice on taking a private jet to the Google climate change summit in Sicily in July.
The Mail on Sunday reported: "Aides warned Harry against taking a private flight to Sicily to attend a Google climate change conference.
"The Prince ignored the guidance and got on the plane. ‘It came back to bite him – badly,’ a source said."
Just a week after the Google summit, the couple flew by private jet to celebrate Duchess Meghan's 38th birthday in Ibiza, and then to holiday at Elton John's £15 million south of France mansion with baby Archie, now four months.
It seems Kate Middleton is more prepared than ever for her future role as Queen Consort, after friends claim she's "reinvented her style.”
Once upon a time, public speaking would be "nerve-wracking" for Kate, but now, according to friends, the Duchess has become more confident, stylish and self-assured.
A pal added: “Kate’s view is that Queen, country and family come first. She is very clear on her priorities and the values that guide how she lives and works.”
Duchess Kate's "quiet transformation" could be in part thanks to her close relationship with her grandmother-in-law, the Queen.
Earlier this year, the Duchess was made a Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order, which is the highest rank equivalent of a Knight.
Awards in the Royal Victorian Order are bestowed personally by the Queen for services to the Sovereign.
Duchess Kate and Her Maj are said to share a very close relationship, and the award is thought to highlight Duchess Kate's important work as a member of the royal family.
"She is now more open with what she wants to say, and funnily enough, she is more relaxed as well," a friend told People.
"She is an adoring mother, and she is contributing publicly in the way we would want her to,” adds an insider.
“You see it more and more. The young student has turned into our future Queen.”
The Duchess also showed her compassionate side by embracing and dancing with locals.
