Well, a body language expert has been analyzing Kate to try and shed some light on this.
The British Royal Family is one of most famous families in the world.

But, of the many members of the British family...

Prince William is the elder son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana.

William began accompanying his parents on official visits at an early age.
via: Getty ImagesIn 1983, he accompanied them on a tour to Australia and New Zealand, a decision made by his mom, Diana. At the time, the move was considered to be unconventional because the first- and second-in-line to the throne would be traveling together, and because of William's young age.
Diana wanted him and his younger brother Harry to have more experiences than are usual for royal children.

William was educated at 4 schools in the UK and studied for a degree at the University of St Andrews.

But, on 31 August 1997, tragedy struck.

Diana was taken to the nearby Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The exact cause of the crash has long been up for debate, with some questioning the sobriety of the driver, and others blaming the irresponsible driving of paparazzi photographers.
William and Harry were left without their mother.

William and Kate have long been royal favorites.Following their lavish, and highly documented royal wedding in 2011, Wills and Kate were thrown into the media spotlight, and we still can't get enough of them.
They met while studying at university.
Though their relationship was on and off for years...
via: Getty ImagesThey clearly couldn't stay away from each other, and their engagement was announced in 2010, 9 years after they first met.
And, ever since, we have followed them as their own little family grew.In July 2013, Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge was born, becoming the third in line to the throne of Great Britain. Kate emerged from St. Mary's hospital in London in a blue polka dot dress, which many saw as a fitting tribute to Princess Diana, who wore a similar spotty attire herself some thirty-one years earlier.
Princess Charlotte followed shortly after.

The princess has actually made royal history.

Before the Succession to the Crown Act 2013...
Traditionally, Prince Louis would have overtaken Charlotte in the line to the throne.

So, as you can see...

They make a truly adorable family.
via: Getty ImagesAnd this week, royal fans have gotten a glimpse into what kind of a mom Kate Middleton it, thanks to a body language expert.
Patti Wood, body language expert and author, revealed some details on what Kate is like as a mom.
She began by saying this:
via: Getty Images"Every time we see Kate out with her children, it's apparent that they're always her priority."
To start off with, her eyes are always on her kids, instead of the cameras.
via: Getty Images"Instead of paying attention to the cameras or reporters, Kate is communicating to her children that this moment is about their family more than anything," says Wood.
This apparently has an even deeper meaning.
via: Getty Images"It's a way of creating a special memory despite the pomp and circumstance."
Kate also doesn't let being in the public eye affect her playful nature when it comes to her kids.
via: Getty ImagesIt seems she's a fun mom at heart. "Oftentimes, you'll catch Kate and William with big, toothy grins and open mouths. These contagious smiles indicate spontaneous joy," says Wood.
She'll often bend down to her kids level...
via: Getty ImagesThis is apparently a way of staying in tune with her children's emotions. "She's constantly scanning to make sure they're okay," Blanca Cobb, another body language expert explained.
via: Getty Images"It's as if she's taking an emotional temperature reading to make sure that everything is alright."
Usually, Kate is holding at least 1 of her children.
via: Getty Images"What's notable is that Kate's hands are usually loosely wrapped around her children's legs," revealed Wood. This embrace apparently indicates that she's trusting of her children.
While many of these behaviors are common for mothers, Woods points out that they are rarer for someone in the public eye like Kate.
via: Getty Images"Time and time again, Kate proves that her focus is on her children—not anyone else," she explained. "She's never tugging at her children or walking ahead of them."
She also had something to say about William and Kate's parenting as a whole.
via: Getty Images"Little things, like walking in the same plane, show there's a balance of power between the couple. "By doing this, the couple gives their children the opportunity to view the world on a greater scale."
Kate and William are clearly in sync with their children.
via: Getty Images"It's obvious that Kate, her husband, and her children are in sync because they reflect each other's facial expressions," says Cobb. So, there you have it! For more on the Duchess, scroll on to read about the latest revelation from her wedding...
