Director Richard Curtis is best known for his beloved 2003 movie Love Actually, as well as classics like Four Weddings and a Funeral and Bridget Jones’s Diary. We’re thinking maybe Kate Middleton really loves those movies too, because for some reason she was hanging out with Curtis this week and discussing a new secret project.
According to the Daily Mail, the two of them met on Wednesday, September 11, during an unannounced private visit. The only thing reports revealed is that “the Cambridges are contributing to a project Curtis is working on.” Per the Daily Mail, this project is about mental health.
If that’s true, it makes sense that Curtis would want to get the Cambridges in the mix. They’ve shown their dedication to mental wellness a few times now, and in 2016 they kicked off the Heads Together project to support discussions and openness around mental health. Curtis himself has been an advocate and has spoken about the subject a few times.
Interestingly, if the Daily Mail sources are accurate, only Middleton met with Curtis. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is that maybe Curtis is making a movie and planning to put her in it. But this could be part of a larger evolution Middleton has been undergoing. People magazine recently spoke to several sources who talked about how Middleton is slowly but surely getting ready to be queen and confidently carrying out more responsibilities.
“She is an adoring mother, and she is contributing publicly in the way we would want her to. You see it more and more. The young student has turned into our future Queen,” a source said. Maybe her meeting with Curtis is just the latest example of how she’s coming into her own. Either way, we can’t wait to hear more about the project.
