Kate Middleton is one of the most admired women in the whole world. Apart from her beauty and grace, many people are fascinated at how well she has adjusted to the royal life, and how her every action influences young women all over the world.
Indeed, many people can take a few cues from the Duchess of Cambridge as there are several life and career lessons that we can all learn from her. As she grows further into her role as the wife of the future King of England, it is expected that the public will see more from her as she continues to inspire men and women all over the world.
Here are some of the life and career lessons that we can learn from Kate Middleton.
Stay cool in the face of controversy
Back in 2012, a British tabloid published a few photos of the Duchess sunbathing topless while frolicking in France with Prince William. This happened while the couple was on a royal tour of South East Asia, and according to E! Online, the Prince reportedly had a difficult time staying cheerful during their tour. However, he and the Duchess managed to stay classy throughout the ordeal, and she managed to keep her composure while the scandal was ongoing.
In one’s personal life or at work, it’s inevitable that there will be someone who will gleefully remind you of the time when you made a huge mistake. The best thing to do is to stay calm and collected, and remind yourself that this will blow over in just a few days.
Ignore the haters
Kate Middleton has been endlessly criticized for her fashion sense, her hair, her behavior, and her decision to take on less royal duties to raise her family. However, she remains adamant about her choices, which makes her a very refreshing addition to the royal family.
People will always find reasons to criticize you, but as Eleanor Roosevelt said, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” Ignore the haters and be an original, while remaining kind, sincere, and gracious to everyone around you.
Look your best at all times
Whenever Kate Middleton is seen in public, she makes it a point to be well-dressed and flawlessly groomed. While being presentable is mandatory for every member of the royal family, one doesn’t need to be a prince or princess to know that looking polished and put-together is a must to be taken seriously. Moreover, simply taking the time to be appropriately dressed and groomed will make you feel better about yourself.
