On Monday Kate Middleton attended one of the oldest royal traditions - the Order of the Garter - after making her debut at the event back in 2008 when she and Prince William were dating.

The outing came days after the royal couple attended an engagement in Cardiff for the Platinum Jubilee and footage surfacing of the Duchess of Cambridge responding to a comment from an admirer who suggested she'd make a great 'Princess of Wales'.

In a clip, shared by Twitter user @hellen3030, a royal watcher shared the aforementioned sentiment about Middleton's future as a princess, before the Duchess of Cambridge directed towards her husband and replied: 'That's very kind of you. I'm in good hands.'

Middleton was seemingly commending her husband, who she married in Westminster Abbey in 2011.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are due to inherit new titles when the former's father Prince Charles becomes King.

Prince William is expected to inherit his father's title, becoming the Duke of Cornwall when in England and the Duke of Rothesay when in Scotland, with Middleton taking the same titles as Duchess of Cornwall and of Rothesay, respectively.

People have speculated that William could also become Prince of Wales one day, though this title isn't hereditary, rather bestowed at the discretion of the Sovereign.

Middleton and Prince William were joined by their eldest children, Prince George, eight and Princess Charlotte, seven, for their first official outing in Wales amid rehearsals for the Platinum Jubilee Celebration Concert earlier this month.

As for the Order of the Garter service, when Middleton attended as Prince William's girlfriend 14 years ago, it signified that she had been welcomed into the royal family.

She later attended less than two months after her royal wedding, when she and Prince William rode in a carriage as newlyweds.

In March, the parents-of-three, who received their dukedom as a gift from the Queen following their marriage, reacted to a woman who addressed them casually during a trip to Wales (where they first lived as newlyweds).

During their trip to mark St. David's Day, Nicky Hurst of Country Fare Wholefoods and Fine Cheeses accidentally called them 'Will' and 'Kate' when they stopped by the cheese stand at popular Abergavenny Market.

'I wasn't sure what they'd be like and what to call them in terms of their titles,' Hurst later told People. Discussing the couple's response, she recalled: 'They were really relaxed.'

Hurst described the Cambridges as 'lovely', adding: 'They're so down-to-earth, an amazing couple. They will make a fantastic King and Queen — and Prince and Princess of Wales.'

Middleton and Prince William began dating in the Noughties while studying at the University of St. Andrews, before becoming engaged in 2010.

The Duke proposed with his mother Princess Diana's oval blue sapphire ring at the foothills of Mount Kenya.
