Though the royal family is still embroiled in controversy, many believe that Kate Middleton will be the one to solve the brood's plethora of problems.
In a recent poll by YouGov, 76 percent of the public stated that she'll "definitely" or "probably" make for a great queen when the time comes.
The mom-of-three has also been playing peacekeeper between Prince Harry and the rest of the royal family — most notably, at Prince Philip's April 17 funeral.
Royal expert Kate Nicholl noted that Harry and Prince William "were very tense as they walked into that chapel. However, "as they came out of it, you could see some tension diffused," she said. "And I think that was largely down to the Duchess of Cambridge, who made a point of speaking to Harry and when she did that, you can see them visibly relax."
"It's always been my understanding that behind the scenes, Kate has tried very hard to forge a rapprochement and act as a peacemaker between William and Harry. She loves Harry. She says that she is the sister that he never had," Nicholl continued. "She has been heartbroken to see them fall out, and I think she is one of the few people, one of the few family members who would actually be able to push the brothers together, which she did in a very subtle way, but was very effective."
"She is seen as a safe pair of hands in troubled times," author Claudia Jones stated to Vogue.
As another man put it: "They say cometh the hour, cometh the man. But in the Royal Family's case, it’s a woman," biographer Brian Hoey shared. "Thank God for Kate — she is the rock the monarchy will depend on."
Kate has also stood up for the royal family — but in a subtle way.
Instead of speaking about Harry and Meghan Markle's shocking interview, the royal has been letting the public get a better glimpse at her and William's family life through various social media posts to prove they're a normal, relatable family.
"Kate, it seems, isn’t going to allow herself, William or her children to get walked over," comedian Jenny Eclair wrote in a column for The Independent. "She is fighting back, hence the charming, 'we’re so ordinary despite being royal' birthday snaps of Prince Louis’s third birthday."
