Kate Middleton seen as ‘safe pair of hands’ and is ‘keeping Royals together’
Kate Middleton is seen as a "safe pair of hands" and is "holding the Royal family together", a royal expert has claimed.
Her status has been boosted by her reported role as peacemaker between her husband Prince William and brother-in-law Prince Harry following the death of Prince Philip.
Claudia Joseph, author of Kate: Making of a Princess, told Vogue: "She is seen as a safe pair of hands in troubled times."
Last month marked William and Kate's 10th wedding anniversary, and it was also the date when the Duchess of Cambridge officially joined The Firm.
In a recent YouGov survey, 76% of responders said she would "definitely" or "probably" make a good queen someday.
Kate also routinely ranks in the top three most popular royals, falling behind only the Queen or, on occasion, her husband.
Her role in the aftermath of Philip's funeral was praised as she was able to manage a temporary peace between warring brothers William and Harry in their first face to face meeting in more than a year.
After the funeral service at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, she drew her brother-in-law into a seemingly cheerful conversation.
As they walked back from the chapel she fell back, allowing the siblings to talk privately.
Relations between the Cambridges and Sussexes have been tense since Harry and his wife Meghan Markle quit as working royals.
This was further worsened by their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.
It featured a string of allegations and accusations, including that someone in the Royal family was concerned about the skin tone of Harry and Meghan's son Archie.
Kate is said to be a firm defender of William's family, and one commentator claiming the Duchess is "fighting back" following the explosive interview.
Jenny Eclair said: "Kate, it seems, isn’t going to allow herself, William or her children to get walked over.
"She is fighting back, hence the charming, 'we’re so ordinary despite being royal' birthday snaps of Prince Louis’s third birthday."
