Kate Middleton, the future Queen of England, joins some fine company in a line royal "ballbreakers" thanks to her incredible charity work.
Recently writing in her news.com.au column, royal commentator Daniela Elser suggested that the 41 year old mum-of-three is finally blending in as a working member of The Firm, driven to impact the lives of those less fortunate.
"Kate is not here to play around the edges of some charity work but to shake things up and to effect real, positive change in the UK.
"Having spent the first decade coming to grips with tiara wearing and not yawning in front of minor Albanian dignitaries at Buckingham Palace do's, Kate is now formulating a professional agenda of her own," she added.
Daniela went on to highlight Kate's commitment to positive youth development through the likes of the Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood, which she founded in 2021.
This particular initiative welcomes "more academic and overly qualified nerdish types than a Dungeons and Dragons convention", while the royal's latest project Shaping Up is less about "organic playdough" and much more interested in tackling homelessness, addiction and mental health issues.
"According to a number of reports, it was Kate who was instrumental in realising that the linchpin of the work that she, [husband Prince] William and then loyal foot soldier Prince Harry would do was within he area of mental health, leading to the formation of their wonderfully radical (for the royal family at the time) mental health organisation, Head’s Up in 2016," added the expert.
"In the years since then, coincidentally the same period during which she and William transitioned to full-time royal duties, she has, year on year, cranked up the seriousness and profile of her early years work."
It's also suggested in the column that Kate's appointment of Alison Corfield as her brand-new private secretary is further indication of her plan to make serious change.
Alison herself was the mind behind chef Jamie Oliver's free school meals campaign and carried a reputation for ball-breaking, straight-talking and making things happen.
Meanwhile, DJ Jax Jones (real name Timucin Lam) recently revealed that both Kate and her future-king hubbie stealthily organised meetings with him in secret in order to learn how to best connect with UK youngsters.
He told The Sun just last week: "Our relationship started at the Jubilee and we hung out at Buckingham Palace afterwards. We all got talking — they are super nice and super welcoming.
"To be asked to get involved [with Shaping Up] and be an ambassador is a real honour. They are really down to earth and they just want to do positive things."
