Over the years, Kate Middleton has become one of the most-watched women in the world—and now, she's reportedly being more "strategic" about peeling back some layers and sharing more about her personal life. During an October 10 appearance with her husband Prince William on BBC Radio 1's Going Home, the Princess of Wales revealed her favorite emojis. Ahem: "The heart with the crying emoji [and] the hysterical laughing [one] when things have gone wrong." She also teased William about whose turn it was to cook dinner that night. Royals—they're just like us!

An anonymous source revealed to Us Weekly that "Kate feels the spotlight more than ever since the queen's passing" and wants to modernize her image.


"She’s in a new phase of her life, and she wants her image and actions to reflect that. Kate used to portray the perfect, feminine wife, mother, and caregiver. Now she wants to be seen as a powerful and kind humanitarian leader," the insider added.

As for the ~chill vibes~ in her wardrobe lately—like swapping fancy dresses for skinny jeans and power suits—the source said that after Queen Elizabeth II's death, "Kate spoke with her team and people she works with, including stylists." According to the source, Kate's team wants to focus on her relatability and "play up" her ability to connect with people.

"Kate wants people to see her as a strong leader, someone who's capable of taking the title of queen into a new generation," the insider continued. "She's been wearing pants, more casual shirts, and less high-priced clothing, and she's ditching the long dresses and heels for more accessible pieces."

New clothes mean a new era is upon us, and honestly? We're loving this new vibe for Princess Kate.
