Kate Middleton ‘is so lovely and friendly,’ University of Bath degree course graduate says


During her visit to the charity centre, whose patron she has been since 2012, on December 10, in Warminster, Wiltshire, the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, was praised by Martha Bache, one of the graduates from the Foundation and Honours degree programmes accredited by the University of Bath.

“She is so lovely and friendly. That is what we have to do as counselors – we give people a voice and some tools. And the fact is she can talk to us in the same way,” Bache, 30, said about the royal mother-of-two. “She’s incredibly warm – she’s a human being who inspires me. She shows empathy, the same empathy that I am aspiring to have.”

Bache talked with People about her struggled with addiction to prescription pills.

“I recognized I had a problem and wanted to do this course. I was interested to learn and help people and support people whatever the problem,” she told the magazine.

And there is nothing surprising here as people are amazed when they meet the royal couple and realize how grounded Kate and William are. Last month, Rachel Weisz opened up about Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s parents in an interview with Jimmy Fallon.

“They make you feel very special. They’re really good,” the actress, 45, said on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

During their royal engagement at an event hosted by mental health charity Mind in October, volunteer Claudia Denington talked with People magazine about the royal couple, saying that during their visit they were “really down-to-earth.”

In June, the Duchess, 33, was described by one of the staffers as being “incredibly down-to-earth, very gracious and extremely polite,” during her stop at an organic shop.

Kensington Palace shared some photos with Duchess Kate, who looked ravishing in a blue Emilia Wickstead dress during the event, during her stepping out at the centre.

Kate sported a shorter hair when showing up with her husband Prince William on Wednesday, December 9, at the ICAP Charity Day at London’s trading floor in order to help raise money for the charity.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, also attended the charity event the Autumn Gala Evening Dinner for Action on Addiction in 2014, when she was pregnant with Princess Charlotte.
