Kate Middleton, 39, has been in the Royal Family since 2011 when she married Prince William. In her years as a working royal, she has made many appearances, including virtual ones over the past year. The couple shared their latest video on their social media last night.
In her speech, the royal appeared very professional and took her time to express her words.
The Duchess attended one of the best private boarding schools in the country which could mean that her posh accent was shaped through her education.
However the expert added that her speech is evident that she has had a dialect coach.
Anna added: “Kate’s accent is Heightened RP – Received Pronunciation, which is the Queen’s English.
Anna said: She flows through the words in her usual clipped accent but arguably missing the usual ‘sunny’ tone she usually has.
“Kate was rumoured to have had a dialect and elocution coach when she first became a member of the Royal Family and this is reflected in her perfectly placed vowels and consonants.
“When we work with students we veer away from neutralising accents – we like to embrace all natural accents but rather, teach our acting students about placement and diaphragmatic breathing.
“Speaking with direction and decision is the best way to sound confident in what you are saying.”
Voice artist Nicola Redman also explained to Express.co.uk that Kate puts emphasis on specific words to get her point across.
The expert explained: “I think they’re both very well versed in addressing the public now and that certainly comes across here. They portray that very classic ‘keep calm and carry on’ royal vibe here with a little nod to the empathy they have for the people they’re addressing, which feels appropriate for their positions.
“The younger royals are known for coming across as a little more accessibly vocally than the generations above them.
“William certainly, is a very practised speaker and manages to sound conversational whilst he delivers his lines in this video.
“Kate has a few moments where she put a definite stress on specific words like ‘front line’ and ‘very different’ and ’work tirelessly’.
“It helps to shape her specific message and guide us as the listener to hear what she feels is important for us to hear.”
The expert shared that it is hard to say whether the couple may have had voice training but says that many people in public positions tend to receive help.
She added: “There is definitely a feeling from this that they have been taken through how to pace their delivery for the medium as they speak with a really consistent rhythm, making it nice and easy for us to follow them.”
