Queen Elizabeth II loves her grandaugter in law and has given Kate Middleton her seal of approval!
A courtier explained that the Queen Mum was giddy at Prince William and Kate's Royal Wedding.
She was practically skipping. Seeing her family full of joy but also seeing the public support and excitement touched her greatly.
She was very supportive of William and Kate leading up to the wedding and nothing could have reaffirmed more that they have the potential to achieve great things for the monarchy. The whole of Britain seemed to have turned up to wish them well.
Kate's willingness to learn the royal customs seems to help matters too!
A source says Queen Elizabeth has grown very fond of her due to the Duchess's humility.
The queen even invited Kate's parents to Ascot last year!
