Posting Happy Family Photos On Social Media Is Kate Middleton's Way Of 'Fighting Back' Against Prince Harry's Claims
Kate Middleton believes a picture is worth a thousand words.
Since Prince Harry aired out his accusations against the royal family, the brood has yet to retaliate, other than Prince William stating "we are very much not a racist family."
But comedian Jenny Eclair notes that the Duchess of Cambridge has been going out of her way to prove to the public that she and her brood are as happy and relatable as ever.

"Kate, it seems, isn’t going to allow herself, William or her children to get walked over," she 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."
The mom-of-three and Prince William also tried to prove their normalcy in their 10th wedding anniversary tribute, in which a video captured the pair and their kids exploring the great outdoors and making s'mores over a rustic campfire.
Just a few days later, the couple released a new photo of smiling 6-year-old Princess Charlotte for her birthday.

It's no surprise that Kate is defending her family, as royal expert Katie Nicholl told U.K.'s OK! magazine that she's "the silent power behind William, the linchpin that keeps everything together."
"Meanwhile, on the other side of the pond, Meghan and Harry missed out on a golden photo opportunity by posting an official second birthday shot of Archie, with his back to the camera in a slightly dreary sepia-tinted photo," Eclair pointed out. "I’m sorry, but right now, whoever is dealing with press for the Cambridges is playing a blinder."
Despite not showing Archie's face in the snap, his parents marked his big day by asking for donations for COVID-19 vaccines in lieu of presents.
Of course, the tot still received plenty of gifts from family and friends.
"They’re staying local in Montecito and are having a pool day and BBQ in their luscious garden," a source spilled to Closer a few days before his May 6 bash. "They’re spoiling him with gifts, books, a toy car, jigsaw puzzles [and] a children’s cooking kit."
