Kate Middleton is feeling the pressure after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepped down from their royal titles. She has been left to take over the inlaws’ responsibilities. In case anyone thought being a royal was just about wearing crowns and ordering around servants, they are certainly mistaken. According to Perez Hilton, one of Kate and Prince William’s new responsibilities is taking over The Royal Foundation which helps those suffering from mental health issues and reaches out to help charities.
A source revealed to Us Weekly that Kate’s mental health is suffering due to feeling overwhelmed about all her new responsibilities.
“Kate’s in a panic and has been having bouts of anxiety. She barely has time to rest, and when she does try to sleep, her mind is constantly racing,” the source confessed to the outlet.
“She’s already stretched pretty thin, and now she’s really worried about how she’ll juggle the extra workload on top of her family life,” the source added.
As far as Kate’s relationship with Meghan, the source explains, “They couldn’t be further apart.”
Prince William is feeling more confident about his new duties.
“William knows he will have a lot more work this year and is happy to perform whatever duties the Queen asks of him. But he is determined that won’t be to the detriment of his charity work. Since his brother Harry and Meghan left the Foundation last year, the work it does has been very much in the model of how both William and Kate want it to be,” a source told The Sun.
“The pair of them personally drive the agenda for the Foundation’s work, attend meetings and have a huge input. Kate is front and centre now where in the past she didn’t have as much of an input. They are very ambitious about what they want to achieve. Performing their royal duties remains incredibly important to them and it always will. But the Foundation is where their passion lies and where they believe they can have a huge impact in 2020,” the source continued.
“Put simply he wants to help bring about a crusade on the issue and feels incredibly passionate about it. Delivering on those aims and ambitions are important to him and he has already drawn up a hectic timetable with his team within the Foundation. Two of the biggest areas are around mental health and supporting those who work in the emergency services.”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry plan to start their own foundation and produce documentaries that raise awareness around injustices.
