Kate Middleton and her now-husband Prince William met in college, as many couples do. He fell in love with her, says behavioral expert Judi James, because of her beautiful smile. And, of course, her poise, which helps her get through royal duties that might drive other people into fits of complaining. But that smile is something special, reports NOW magazine. Sure, she has straight, super-white teeth, framed by dimples and round, rosy cheeks. But her smile is natural, warm, and long-lasting. Those are all attributes a royal wife needs.
Was Prince William looking for a future queen as early as collegeÂ—"at university', the Britons say? Of course he was. And he found her in Kate Middleton. The smile was his best clue that she had what it takes. "Kate's smile and her ability to hold it is a major asset," James said in an interview. "Normally it's impossible to hold a genuine smile for 10 minutes straight." The expert says she has tried this herself, and failed. Most people would not know that interesting fact, but odds are Prince William does, since he has been paraded in front of crowds since he was a baby. And most likely he was reminded to smile.
Remember the little bridesmaid at the Royal Wedding, looking glum, as if she'd rather get back to her video game? You never see that look on Kate Middleton. Duchess Catherine, says James, "never looks miserable when she appears at official engagements." Nor does she have that fake, get-me-out-of-here grin. Her poise, her charmÂ—and that gorgeous smileÂ—will see the duchess through.
