Relations between the Sussexes and Cambridges have remained tense since Harry and Meghan’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year. The Duke and Duchess of Sussexes’ sit-down with the US chat show host had an “unexpected” impact on Kate and William, according to royal correspondent Camilla Tominey.
Writing for the Telegraph, she said: “It seems an unexpected consequence of the family conflict has been to help William and Kate find equilibrium in their own marriage.
“What started out as an uneven match between a blue-blooded prince and his ‘plus one’ has now blossomed into a two-peas-in-a-pod kind of partnership.”
Ms Tominey added how William has supported Kate through her time in the Royal Family.
The Duchess of Cambridge has been described as the Royal Family’s “glue” amid all the drama.

“In their masks it was impossible to know what was said, but somehow Kate managed to defuse a deeply tense and difficult moment.”
It came after Harry told Oprah that William is “trapped” in the Royal Family.
He said: “My father and my brother, they are trapped.
“They don’t get to leave. And I have huge compassion for that.”
Harry added that he is on a “different path” to William and “the relationship is space at the moment. And, you know, time heals all things, hopefully”.
