THE Duchess of Cambridge is “intensely loyal” to Prince William according to a royal commentator.
During the Royally Obsessed podcast Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie discussed the rift between Prince William and Prince Harry. Ms Fiorito stated that distance between the two brothers grew following Prince William suggesting that Prince Harry needed to take time to get to know Meghan Markle.
Ms Bowie said: “William called Meghan ‘this girl’ to Harry and it kind of undermined them.”
Ms Fiorito replied: “So, William told Harry don’t feel you have to rush this, take as much time as you need to get to know this girl and that was really what kind of ruffled Harry’s feathers.
“He felt that it was very cavalier about the woman he was head over heels in love.
“I think that really set off the distance.

“What I found interesting in Omid’s take was just that Kate was and is intensely loyal to Prince William.
“So, I can understand that if there was some sort of discord between the two then if there wasn’t a chance of them coming together as a friendship maybe they divided.”
Last week a royal historian stated that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex supporting the Queen “overshadowed” other members of the Royal Family.
Dr Kate Williams told Sky News that the Royal Family were unable to harness Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s star power.
Ms Williams said: “The Royal Family has a very strict hierarchy and what they would like to be the case is that the public attention goes to the more senior royals, not to the more junior royals.
“The simple fact is that you can’t direct public attention.
“People are more interested in what Prince Harry and Meghan have to say than other more senior royals such as the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.
“No matter what they do it does seem that Harry and Meghan get this greater attention.”

She continued: “The fact is that whatever they did to support the Queen would often overshadow other members of the Royal Family and that was seen as a problem.
“They have this huge star power.
“They had a smaller wedding than most siblings in the same position, Andrew had a huge wedding, Anne had a huge wedding.
“They had a small wedding but still the coverage of Harry and Meghan’s wedding even though it was smaller was still as big as William’s and Kate’s because there is a worldwide fascination with them.”
