On many occasions, Kate Middleton has had some seriously adorable moments with kids. Whether the Princess of Wales is holding a baby or giving parenting advice, there’s almost always an awe-inducing scene. However, a commentator says these tug-at-the-heartstrings interactions, specifically a recent Kate video featuring a 3-year-old and a poppy pin, highlight something else; that the royal family would be in trouble without Kate.

During a Nov. 9 visit to Colham Manor Children’s Centre, Kate had a short conversation with Akeem, 3. It ended with the mother of three giving the boy her poppy pin.
According to royal commentator Daniela Elser, the exchange “might sound a bit dull,” (via New Zealand Herald). Although she wrote, it’s probably exactly what royal aides hope to see.
“The perfect alchemy of a member of the House of Windsor on sparkling, perfect form; the awesome power of social media and a very cute child thrown into the mix,” she said. “It was, quite simply, adorable and heart-melting.”
“But, once everyone has stopped making “awww …” sounds, let’s consider what this moment really drives home, and that is; how stuffed the royal family would be without Kate.”
‘Emotional response’ is important for royal family and Kate Middleton delivers, commentator explains
“Support for the monarchy is not just built on the public’s cool-headed intellectual assessment of the institution’s benefits to the national good but on an emotional response,” Elser said. What keeps the palace afloat is the adoration and affection they engender.”
Back to the Kate video. It showed she “can deliver this most precious commodity by the truckload.” Had Prince William married a different college girlfriend, Elser opined, chances are she wouldn’t “have that elusive, rare star quality that Kate does.”
“If Kate was not on the scene, if William has not chosen so well, the monarchy would be more than a bit f***ed,” the commentator said.

Elser also pointed out the video’s impromptu feel. A “small handful of smartphone-wielding parents” and Sky News’ Royal Correspondent, Rhiannon Mills, filmed Kate and Akeem’s chat.
