I guess it started when I watched the wedding. I don’t know about the rest of the world, but in Britain, it was all over the TV and I was like “Mum, Mum, we have to watch it!” and so we did and it was amazing and I guess that’s where it all started. And the thing that stood out to me most was her composure throughout the whole thing. Obviously she must have been absolutely terrified. I think most people are usually pretty nervous on their wedding day, but imagine having millions of people watching! I kept trying to imagine how she must’ve been feeling and honestly, I don’t think I could’ve done it. But the whole thing went perfectly and she totally held her own, which shows how strong she is. That’s one of the main things that I love about her. Even with all the immense pressure she’s under, she still manages to stay calm and smile and she’s also stayed very level headed. She didn’t let her sudden rise to fame change her at all. I think she has a very strong sense of self and she stays true to herself. She doesn’t let other peoples opinions and criticisms get to her or affect what she does. She works hard, and as long as she knows that, it doesn’t matter what other people think. And honestly it makes me sad that people think she doesn’t work hard enough. You can tell that she genuinely cares about the people she meets and wants to help them and make a difference in their lives, and she does. Everyone who meets her always talks about how kind and humble she is. She’s one of those people who can literally hold a conversation with anyone, even hundreds of people lined up in a street, who she has never met before. And she always asks if they’re okay and she really engages with them, asking about their lives and stuff. And she always makes them feel comfortable talking to her, even though she’s royalty, people have said how down to earth she is. And she’s also pretty good at handling awkward situations and has a great sense of humour too, which is good.
Honestly, I could talk for hours about this woman. She’s just so beautiful and strong and funny and kind and adorable and she’s just really really special to me.
