Kate Middleton News: Duchess outshines Camilla Parker Bowles as royal outings collide | Royal | New
On Tuesday, Kate took part in various outdoor activities and a boat trip, while Camilla joined Prince Charles in Aberdeen. However, the Duchess of Cambridge sent royal fans into a frenzy with a jaw-dropping image of the Lake District, while Camilla’s royal outing went under the radar.
On September 21, Kate was in the Lake District where she participated in various outdoor activities.
Photos showed the royal recall at Cathedral Quarry in Little Langdale, Cumbria, with a group of Air Cadets.
During the visit, she took a boat trip with two of the “Children of Windermere,” a group of 300 Holocaust survivors who came to the Lake District in 1945.
The children stayed for a period of convalescence following their experiences in the concentration camps and ghettos of Nazi-occupied Europe at Wray Castle.
Meanwhile, Camilla and Charles visited the redeveloped Aberdeen Art Gallery at Schoolhill.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have played a central role in the royal family throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
Prince William and Kate are now among the most popular members of the Royal Family, with YouGov making them the second and third most popular members of The Firm respectively, behind only Queen Elizabeth II.
In contrast, Charles was the seventh most popular monarch, with Camilla the tenth.
YouGov polled 1667 from August 27-29 and found 64% thought Kate highly, compared to Camilla’s 36%.

After a 2017 poll found that Britons would rather Kate and William become the next monarchs, Camilla is reportedly furious if her husband, who is heir to the throne, relinquishes his birthright.
A royal source told Women’s Day in 2017: “Camilla told Charles to stand up and fight.
“She is furious and told him it was her destiny to be on the throne.
“Camilla is furious that William could potentially take the throne – and firmly points her finger at poor Kate.”

According to Daily Express royal correspondent Richard Palmer, there were tensions at the palace at the time as Charles tried to implement changes towards becoming king.
Mr Palmer said: “Tensions are mounting between staff as the monarchy prepares to live without the Queen.
“As courtiers oversee a gradual handover to Prince Charles and his sons, some courtiers have found their noses disjointed amid tensions over the pace of change.
“This is a slightly jarring change, contrary to the long held view that the monarchy is somehow modeled after the design of a Marmite pot: it changes drastically over the years but so gradually that the change is irreplaceable.”
This comes from the fact that royal expert Duncan Larcombe suggested that Kate had her own direct line to speak to Her Majesty.
He said OK! Magazine: “Kate has her own hotline to speak to the Queen and she calls her to watch her and give her news about the children.
“She always relies on her for advice. Kate is believed to be the one who taught the Queen how to use Zoom and it’s very nice, so she can see her great-grandchildren and stay connected.
“Kate and the Queen have a fantastic relationship. Kate finds that balance between bowing to her as the head of the royal family in public but being able to see her as the great-grandmother of her children.
