As Prince William is still dealing with the fallout of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's interview, his wife, Kate Middleton, has been his rock during this tough time.
Journalist Penny Junor also commended the mom-of-three for adjusting to the royal family over the years, explaining that she's "not on an ego trip" and "has not been turned by celebrity."
"[Kate's] not over the top, not 'me, me, me' at all. I think she's absolutely coming into her prime now — she’s confident, she’s competent, and you don’t get the impression that she’s waiting for cameras to be there and it’s all a publicity stunt," Junor said.
In the meantime, the brunette beauty is adamant on making sure that her brood doesn't fall apart after the tell-all made headlines. “The interview was particularly difficult for Kate to digest, but she’s pulled herself together and is staying strong for the royal family and her children,” an insider told Us Weekly. “Kate’s an extremely protective mother and while she’s all about open communication, George, Charlotte and Louis are still young.”
“Kate is definitely strong enough to get through this,” the source continued. “She has a lead by example attitude, so it’s important for her to be a good role model to them. George and Charlotte are back at school, but she’s been spending her evenings with them. The children always brighten up her day, and she always says that when she goes through a difficult time, having her family there always helps. She feels so blessed to have her kids and a loving family.”
Now, it seems like Kate may never repair their relationship with Meghan and Harry. "There is no trust after what Meghan did," a source told The Royal Observer, referring to when the former actress claimed Kate made her cry before her 2018 wedding while speaking to Oprah Winfrey.
"It is clear that Meghan shares private conversations with reporters and TV personalities, which makes it very hard to move forward. Kate would pick up the phone in a second if she thought it would help, but having another private call leaked to the press isn’t going to help anyone,” the source added.
