Kate, Princess of Wales, was overheard giving a romantic explanation on why she’ll succeed in her new role. The royal, who was previously titled the Duchess of Cambridge, recently became the Princess of Wales following the death of Queen Elizabeth II. In a clip shared on Twitter by user @hellen3030, Kate can be seen meeting and greeting a crowd at Cardiff Castle. One member of the crowd, shaking Kate’s hand, told her that she will make a great Princess of Wales.
Gesturing towards her husband, Prince William, the royal replied: “That’s very kind of you. I’m in good hands.”
The visit took place in June during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend, before the couple had inherited the Prince and Princess of Wales titles.
They visited the Welsh city alongside their two older children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
After receiving their new titles, a royal source said the couple are “focussed on deepening the trust and respect of the people of Wales over time.”
They added: “The Prince and Princess of Wales will approach their roles in the modest and humble way they’ve approached their work previously.
“The new Princess of Wales appreciates the history associated with this role but will understandably want to look to the future as she creates her own path.”
The last person to hold the Princess of Wales title was the late Princess Diana.
Kate and William hold a special connection to Wales, as it is where the couple lived as newlyweds and first-time parents.

When the official period of royal mourning ended on Tuesday, the couple paid a visit to both Holyhead and Swansea. On a visit to St Thomas Church in Swansea, Kate spoke to people about the cost of living crisis, describing the situation as “desperate”.
The couple continued to live in North Wales after they announced their engagement in 2010, still living there for the birth of their first child George in July 2013.
The church, which operates as a community hub including a foodbank and facilities for homeless people, is also home to the Swansea Baby Basics scheme which distributes essentials for vulnerable mothers across the city. Kate and William met with volunteers at the hub as well as some members of the public outside.
Earlier in the day, the couple visited RNLI Holyhead Lifeboat Station, where they met crew, volunteers, and people who have been helped by the charity. The Prince of Wales watched as his wife the Princess of Wales was presented with a posy of flowers by four-year-old Theo Crompton at the start of their visit.
