According to a report, Princess Kate is likely to make a significant choice in the competition to succeed King Charles for a prominent position. The 41-year-old has been identified as a top candidate to become the commodore at the Royal Thames Yacht Club located in Knightsbridge. Past royal patrons of the club include Lord Mountbatten and Prince Philip. King Charles assumed the role following Prince Andrew's decision to step down from his positions due to his connections to Jeffrey Epstein.
The Duchess of Cornwall, well-known for her love of sailing, was considered a perfect match for the role. A senior club member told MailOnline that Kate would be an exceptional role model. However, the challenge lies in the fact that royal protocol requires her and the Royal Family to take the initiative. As a mother of three, she is recognized as an athletic member of the Firm.
Before marrying Prince William, Princess Kate participated in the Sisterhood Challenge rowing event. Last summer, she engaged in a catamaran race alongside Olympic sailor Sir Ben Ainslie in Plymouth. In 2019, both the Prince and Princess of Wales took Princess Charlotte and Prince George to the Isle of Wight for the King's Cup regatta. The 41-year-old holds more than 20 patronages, including notable ones such as the All England Tennis Club and SportsAid.
Last month, Princess Kate was seen in the royal box during one of her appearances at Wimbledon. On the second day of the prestigious tennis tournament, she was accompanied by the eight-time champion, Roger Federer. In an interview with The New York Times, the Swiss star shared his experience of sitting beside the future Queen. He expressed that it was enjoyable to sit next to Princess Catherine, whom he knows quite well. He mentioned that she is a passionate tennis enthusiast and also plays the sport herself.
