A source reportedly close to the royal mum told Tatler magazine that the Duchess was feeling “exhausted and trapped” after watching her brother-in-law Prince Harry and new wife Meghan Markle successfully sever their tied with royal duties and move to America.
“Kate is furious about the larger workload. Of course she’s smiling and dressing appropriately but she doesn’t want this,” the friend reportedly told the publication.
“She feels exhausted and trapped. She’s working as hard as a top CEO, who has to be wheeled out all the time, without the benefits of boundaries and plenty of holidays.”

Meanwhile, Kate and husband Prince William have been trying to keep busy while in UK lockdown. They have held many video conferences with UK citizens to keep spirits up, while keeping it real at home while struggling through home schooling their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlott and Prince Louis.
Over the Easter break, Kate revealed she had been continuing school work even during the holidays, to ensure Prince George and Princess Charlotte stayed in their regular routines.
“It gets a bit hectic, I’m not going to lie,” she shared in a BBC interview.
