Kate Middleton reportedly “sympathises” with her husband Prince William’s "upset and anger” following Prince Harry and Meghan’s Oprah interview.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s recent “tell-all” Oprah left viewers across the world shocked by several astonishing revelations. During the special, the couple spoke about life in the royal spotlight, with Meghan claiming that an unnamed member of the Royal Family made comments about her son Archie’s skin color before he was born. 

Whilst Prince Harry opened up on his relationship with his father and brother, revealing his belief that they were “trapped” in the royal institution - a claim that some sources have since said was not his "place to say"

Prince William has now broken his silence on his brother and sister-in-law's revelations. During a visit to a school with the Duchess of Cambridge, William stressed: “We are very much not a racist family.”

Buckingham Palace also issued an official statement in response to the interview that spoke of how the ‘issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning.’

It went on to state: ‘Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved family members.'

Meanwhile, reports emerged last week that suggested Prince Harry had now spoken to Prince Charles and Prince William, but these talks were said to be “not productive”.

Now a royal expert has claimed that Kate Middleton has “been there” for William and despite being a lover of peace, "sympathises" with his feelings. 

How has Kate Middleton supported Prince William?

As reported in OK! magazine, royal expert Katie Nicholl stated: “Kate has been there for William recently, especially after his conversations with Harry didn’t go too well.

“Kate has always remained loyal to William despite how close she was to Harry. Her loyalties are with her husband and their family.

“Even though she’d love peace and harmony, she sympathises with William’s upset and anger.”

Ms. Nicholl also shared how the birth of Pippa Middleton’s new baby has been wonderfully uplifting for the family during this challenging time.

“Pippa’s baby joy has been a welcome distraction for Kate after a difficult few weeks,” she explained. “It’s really put a smile back on her face.”
