Kate Middleton received praises from the Grenadier Guards as they lobby for the royal to become their new colonel. The report first emerged in The Sunday Times after a senior source in the infantry regiment talked about the matter, according to Hello! magazine.

As stated, "they would all love it to be Kate," adding that they "admire the way she has fitted in and behaved." It is, also, pointed out that the Duchess of Cambridge, "never seems to put a foot wrong."

The publication, later on, said that if the future Queen Consort becomes the new Colonel of the Grenadier Guards, it would be historic. In its 366-year history, only one female royal was appointed for the position, and that is Queen Elizabeth II.

The British Monarch first became the Colonel of the Grenadier Guards in 1942. She recently took over the honorary role again when Prince Andrew returned it to her amid the lawsuit he is facing.

The Duke of York received the position from Prince Philip in 2017. The late royal was the colonel of one of the senior infantry regiments of the British Army for more than four decades until he retired.

Reports asserted that the Queen and the regiment decide the appointment of the role.

Following all the speculations, though, no official word has come to light, and Kate Middleton seemingly maintains her silence about the matter.

Prince Andrew lost all the military titles he held across the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and Canada nearly two weeks ago. In an official statement from the palace, it stated that he had returned the honorary roles, as well as his royal patronages, back to Queen Elizabeth II.

CBS News, then, reported that the British Monarchy would redistribute what the Duke of York had returned to other members of the British Royal Family, which includes Kate Middleton. Moreover, he will no longer use the HRH style in any official capacity.

The announcement came after a judge ruled against his camp's motion to dismiss the charges made by Virginia Giuffre against him. The case will, later on, move to trial when the two parties fail to settle.

Meanwhile, if Queen Elizabeth II and the regiment decide to officially appoint Kate Middleton as the new Colonel of the Grenadier Guards, it will be an addition to her titles and roles in the British Monarchy. To date, she holds three honorary military appointments across the United Kingdom and Canada.

The Duchess of Cambridge received her first military role as a Canadian Ranger in 2011. She obtained another in 2015 as an Honorary Air Commandant of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets.

In mid-2021, she was appointed as a Lady Sponsor of HMS Glasgow.
