Queen ‘nurtures Will and Kate’s bond after learning from Diana, says Andrew Morton

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's solid marriage is one that is admired worldwide.

And in a new interview with royal biographer Andrew Morton, he explained that the Queen is also supportive of their relationship and has spent a lot of time "nurturing" it.

"The thing about Kate is the Queen was impressed she adored and loved William for himself, not for his title," he said.

"She spends a lot more time supporting and nurturing the relationship between William and Catherine than she did with Charles and Diana. It’s pretty clear she wasn’t going to make that mistake again.

"Everything that happened in [Kate and William’s] relationship was quite strategic, quite thought through, after a period of time. In the beginning, nobody in the royal household expected for a second that the university romance with Catherine and William would continue for any time after they graduated, like most college romances which disintegrate under the intense scrutiny of jobs and geography."

There's no denying Kate and William, who stepped out last week for the Top Gun premiere, are the future of our monarchy, and Andrew, author of new biography The Queen, explained that the head of the royal family has spent "a lot of time" with the Cambridges.

He continued: "I think she sees them very much as the future. She’s no fool – she knows Prince Charles is going to be an interregnum, like Edward VII, so the family that will carry the burden for the monarchy going forwards is the House of Cambridge."

The Queen will celebrate her Platinum Jubilee next month with a bank holiday weekend full of activities and tributes to Her Majesty planned.

Speaking of her greatest strength, Andrew said of our great Queen: "Her stoicism. She’s phlegmatic, she’s a woman of strong emotions but she keeps them in check because that’s what she’s been trained to do and that’s second nature to her.

"I think her finest hour was her speech she made in regards to Covid. It was her reminding the British people that they’d shown stoicism and resilience in the past and could do so again."
