The Duchess of Cambridge has ‘been there’ for her husband and ‘sympathises with his upset and anger’ over Meghan and Harry’s interview claims, according to a royal expert.
Vanity Fair’s royal editor Katie Nicholl told OK magazine: ‘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.’
She added the birth of Pippa Middleton’s daughter Grace has been a huge source of joy.
‘Pippa’s baby joy has been a welcome distraction for Kate after a difficult few weeks,’ Katie said. ‘It’s really put a smile back on her face.’
While Kate has stepped up support for William, he is also reportedly being ‘protective’ over his wife after she was dragged into the Oprah interview drama.

Meghan claimed the duchess made her cry in a run up to the royal wedding, a revelation which insiders say left Kate feeling ‘mortified’.
The couple made a number of shocking allegations about the Royal Family during the two-hour CBS special, including that one unidentified member had concerns about how dark their son Archie’s skin would be when he was born.
Meghan told Oprah she had suicidal feelings after moving to England – but allegedly was told she could not get help.
Meanwhile, Harry claimed his brother and dad are ‘trapped’ in the Royal Family, adding that a ‘lack of support and understanding’ had led to his decision to leave.

Last week CBS presenter Gayle King said she had spoken to the Sussexes who told her that Harry had talked to his brother and father after the interview but the conversation was ‘not productive’.
Ms King, 66, told CBS This Morning: ‘Well I’m not trying to break news, but I did actually call them to see how they were feeling, and it’s true, Harry has talked to his brother and he has talked to his father too.
‘The word I was given was that those conversations were not productive. But they are glad that they have at least started a conversation.’
Prince William spoke out against the interview last week, telling a member of the press the royals are ‘very much not a racist family’.
