Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton wants it all, and we can’t blame her! After welcoming her third child, Prince Louis, nearly a year ago, Kate, 37, is still trying to find balance between tending to her royal duties and being the best mom to her kids — Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Louis — that she can be.

[Prince] William and the children mean everything to Kate, so she’s determined to create a healthy balance between her personal life and her future role,” a source recently told Us Weekly. “It’s taken a long time to get to where she is today, but she’s ready.”

We’re sure that Kate can no doubt do it all and, when the time comes for William, 36, to take the throne, she will be more than ready to “take on more senior duties.”

“She’ll continue to pursue her passions, which she’ll balance with being a mother to her children and being queen,” the source added. Since Queen Elizabeth won’t be the Queen of England forever, she has apparently been preparing Kate to take her position when the time is right.

“She’s really taken Kate under her wing,” royal expert Rebecca Long explained to Us Weekly recently. “The two of them will often spend hours discussing royal life and the future of the monarchy.”

With Queen Elizabeth’s help, Kate will surely get better at juggling her work and home life. Then, when she’s ready, she’ll rule over England like a true queen does.

“Kate’s been taking on new responsibilities little by little over the last few years, so it won’t be a shock when the time comes,” Rebecca continued. “William and Kate are the favorite royals to take the crown in many generations, so the people of the U.K. are very excited about it.” We are too!
