The Duchess of Cambridge is said to play the role of ‘trying to keep things together’ within the family.
And an insider says she could prove to be a more popular successor to the Queen than Charles and Camilla when the time comes.
The Royal Family have been hit by a rocky start to 2021 with a series of sensational claims from Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle.
In an interview with Oprah earlier this year, it was claimed there were ‘concerns’ about their son Archie’s skin color, but Meghan declined to name the Royal with whom she had the conversation.
Then further claims were made in a series of interviews Harry gave while in the United States.
In the documentary series The Me You Can’t See, Harry accused the royal family of “total neglect” and claimed that his father allowed him to “suffer” like a child in the face of the media.
The Queen was reportedly “deeply upset” by the company’s public searches – and she took them “very personally”.
In an interview with 60 Minutes Australia Vanity Fair, Royal Editor Katie Nichol said Kate Middleton was able to keep things together for the family.
Host Tom Steinfort said: “Kate’s position in the royal family is now so far away that many believe she is their greatest asset. “
Ms Nicholl replied: “I think Kate is the glue. In the same way that the Duke of Edinburgh has always been the one who would help solve family problems.
“He was the patriarch of the family. “
She added: “I see Kate stepping into this role. Trying to keep things together. “
She also discussed the line of succession and whether the monarchy should skip the next one, Prince Charles, when the time comes.
She said: “A lot of people think it would make more sense to skip a generation and let the crown go straight to William and Kate.
“Maybe they could turn out to be a more popular king and queen than Charles and Camilla.
“But the idea of breaking the constitution and that’s basically everything the Royal Family is built on is really something that’s not going to happen. “
