Kate Middleton will be eternally grateful to the " one person" she could "truly turn to" during her feud with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, says a royal expert.
The Duchess of Cambridge's brother James Middleton, 38 is reported to have acted as a close confidant in the long stand-off with the now-estranged royal couple.
At the worst points in the saga a blazing row during Princess Charlotte’s dress fitting for Meghan’s wedding is reported to have left Kate "in tears” — a claim which the Duchess of Sussex desperately attempted to reverse in an explosive interview with Oprah earlier this year.
Royal expert Neil Sean has now said on his YouTube channel that his "calm and relaxing influence" on the 39 year old was invaluable source of calm during the stormy period.
He said: "There was one person that she could truly turn to, confide in, and be assured that it would go no further.
"The person that Kate confided in to such a degree that he has become her rock, is none other than her brother, James Middleton.
"Now James has had a chequered past himself, he's had a few businesses that haven't taken off, but he's marched forward."
"He's been very open about his own personal struggles, he got married this year, and as you can see, he has a great affection for animals who he says do a lot to help and assist people with mental health issues.
He added that she also did seek solace in her husband Prince William, but understood that he had been "dealing with a lot" and didn't want to give him any additional stress.
James Middleton married girlfriend Alizée Thevenet in an intimate ceremony.
The couple met in London in 2018 and jetted off to Alizée’s native France to make it official.
Both Kate and William were at the ceremony alongside Pippa Middleton and her husband James Matthew.
