Kate Middleton is reportedly being considered to be the head of Princess Diana's old army regiment.
People magazine reported that plans are in an "advanced" stage to make Kate honorary colonel of the Princess of Wales' Royal Regiment.
"A final decision will be made in a few weeks but the plan to head Diana's regiment is advanced. Kate does not want to be seen as a copycat of Diana but she likes to pay her tribute. She would take the role very seriously," an aide was quoted as saying to People.
The appointment will be an accolade to the late mother of her husband Prince William.
The PWRR was formed in 1992 with the incorporation of two historic infantry regiments, the Queen's and Royal Hampshires, and can draw its pedigree back to Elizabeth I.
Diana and Charles divorced, and she lost her HRH status, therefore, she had to quit her position as Colonel-in-Chief.
The PWR is also known as The Tigers and can boast 57 VCs. However, it has also been reported that Kate will accompany William and Prince Harry in a charity partnership with the Forces In Mind Trust to help ex-Service personnel who are finding it difficult to deal with civilian life.
Meanwhile, Kate is expected to attend the premiere of the film War Horse with Wills in London on Sunday.
