Kate Middleton following in footsteps of Diana – ‘One gesture worth a thousand words’
Prince William’s wife shares strong traits with her late mother-in-law, something that became particularly visibly in a poignant gesture, according to a royal expert. The Duchess showed that “one gesture is worth a thousand words” last month while attending Sarah Everard’s vigil.
In a poignant gesture, Kate attended a memorial in South London for the marketing executive who was murdered last month.
During the unannounced appearance, she paid her respects and left flowers for the young woman at Clapham Common.
Royal biographer Andrew Morton commended the Duchess for letting her actions portray her emotions, like Diana did.
He told OK!: “She didn’t have to say a word, just turned up and laid her flowers and everyone can draw their own conclusions.
“That’s exactly how Diana did it – one gesture is worth a thousand words.
“It shows that Kate is someone who doesn’t have to speak out.”
He added: “She’s doing what Diana used to do, which is let her body language tell the story.”
