The undemocratic monarchy only exists because that's what public opinion currently indicated Britons want. However, support for the Royals is strong amongst older people but significantly less with younger people. This is why it's so important for the Royal Family to modernise and broaden it's appeal amongst younger people otherwise we will get to a point when public opinion is in favour of scrapping them. Kate offers nothing new to the family and is just a continuation of the status quo which may be ok for a nonagenarian monarch but offers nothing new or interesting to younger generations. Can anyone think of anything of worth that Kate has done? Going on an official trip to the Royal Ballet or presenting a trophy at Wimbledon Tennis doesn't count.
