Queen Elizabeth sets example to Catherine

Related

Britain's Duchess Catherine is looking to Queen Elizabeth as an ''example'' of how to work as a royal.

The 30-year-old beauty - who wed Prince William in a glittering ceremony at London's Westminster Abbey last year - is believed to get on well with the Queen and is learning how to be in the royal family by watching her.

Royal biographer Sally Bedell Smith told The Sunday Times: ''When the Queen and Philip took Kate to Leicester for the first jubilee visit outside London I was struck by the body language they had and how clearly fond of each other they are.

''I think she is looking to the Queen as an example - you can see in the way she comports herself with a certain discipline.''

Elizabeth is not the only member of the royal family Catherine enjoys spending time with - it was recently revealed she has also been meeting with her father-in-law Prince Charles to discuss cultural issues.

A source said: ''She and Prince Charles spend a lot of time together. They go on visits to the opera and art galleries; they share passions that neither William or his brother Harry share. They get on very well.

(Queen Elizabeth) has also made a lot of time for the duchess. They have a warm relationship as was evidenced when they went to Leicester.''
