William and Kate avoid pitfall that made Charles ‘feel low’ and overshadowed Diana


PRINCE WILLIAM and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, have avoided the pitfall of jealousy which plagued relations between Charles and Diana, according to royal insiders.

“Now, if you’re a man like my husband, a proud man, you mind about that if you hear it every day for four weeks,” she said.

“And you feel low about it, instead of feeling happy and sharing it.”

She added she did not feel “flattered” by the coverage, “because with the media attention came a lot of jealousy; a great deal of complicated situations arose because of that.”

It is a fate that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have seemingly avoided, as they cement a marriage “based on friendship” and where each “enjoys the other’s successes.”

“They’ve got a solid relationship and she gives him confidence,” one friend who attended the couple’s 2011 wedding told The Times.

“This is a marriage based on friendship.”
