Kate Middleton praised for stepping in for Queen on emotional Remembrance Day

Kate Middleton was praised by a royal author for putting on a brave face for Remembrance Day in the absence of the Queen.

The 95-year-old monarch was unable to attend the service on Sunday (November 14) due to a sprained back and is understood to have been heartbroken to have missed being there in person.

A body language expert said The Duchess of Cambridge appeared to be the "Alpha female" when she stood on the balcony at the Cenotaph with other members of the Royal Family.

Angela Levin, the author of Harry: Conversations with the Prince, has weighed in and praised Kate, as well as Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and Sophie, Countess of Wessex for their conduct.

She told GB News: "You couldn't have asked for more wonderful women up there on the balcony.

"I think they're all dedicated to the monarchy, they work tremendously hard, they don't try and gain fame for themselves.

"I think they put themselves into keeping the monarchy going and working as hard as they can for the Queen.

"I think we're jolly lucky to have three women like that and they shine above those who don't have the same views."

The royal author said the Queen regarded the Remembrance service as "'the most important engagement of the year" and her absence was a "dark cloud".

Discussing the Queen's injury, she said: "We don't know how concerned we should be because spraining your back could happen to anybody at any time.

"It can last a long time and it would be very uncomfortable to travel by car from Windsor to London and be very uncomfortable to stand for a long time."

As the author pointed out, members of the Royal Family looked especially solemn as they remembered the fallen soldiers without the Queen overseeing the ceremony.
