凯特王妃哈里王子_China Daily

Whispering conspiratorially in her ear on stage at the Queen’s 90th birthday street party. A good-natured tease about her skyscraper heels that might have got stuck in a grille as they walked up the aisle in St Paul’s for a thanksgiving service for the Monarch.


And not forgetting the chat that reduced her to teeth-flashing, eye-crinkling giggles as they sat together during the same service, while Prince William stared blankly in the other direction.



It’s becoming rather hard to ignore how well Prince Harry gets on with the Duchess of Cambridge. Whether it’s at the London Olympics, weddings, Trooping the Colour or even sombre events like the World War I centenary commemorations in Belgium in 2014, Harry and Kate can often be seen side-by-side.

Harry is, of course, a joker, and likes to give humorous asides during some public events, like his grandfather. And Kate is a polite, responsive soul, not one to ignore others’ attempts to make her laugh. Regardless, the closeness of their relationship is all too apparent.


Harry has plenty of female friends — including cousins Zara, Beatrice and Eugenie — but he is probably closer to Kate than any other woman on the planet.


While cheeky online commentators have suggested there’s a flirtation going on, one source insists: ‘That’s not it, although he does have a knack of making women, including Kate, feel good about themselves, commenting on what they are wearing, for example.



‘But as Harry once said, Kate is like the big sister he never had’. Even, occasionally, a mother figure.


‘While William and Harry get on with Camilla and are delighted to see their father happy, they don’t really confide in her,’ said one source. ‘She can’t replace their mother, and wouldn’t expect to.’

And so, into the emotional vacuum Diana left behind for both her sons, stepped Kate. She has been both a trusted counsel and something of a partner in crime for the persistently single Harry.


Theirs is a genuine friendship, founded on nights spent in front of Game Of Thrones boxsets and companionable suppers. From giving him cookery lessons to offering sensible romantic advice, Kate has become Harry’s lynchpin.


So what does Kate find so appealing about Harry? A willingness to lark around, for one thing — something the usually serious William isn’t often seen doing.


‘Kate has quite a different relationship with Harry than she has with William,’ says the royal insider. ‘Harry appeals to her sillier side because he is carefree, footloose and loves banter. He finds things funny about people and says so.



‘William, partly because of his position, partly because of his character, plays it safe like his father, whereas Harry is free and easy, with a “let’s have the whole bottle” sort of attitude. Kate also adores the way Harry plays with her children — he is very good with them, a charming big kid and silly uncle.’


Unlike most vigorous, fun-loving young people, a single Prince — and, indeed, a future Queen — have to be careful whom they trust. And, alongside William, Kate is as safe as it can be for Harry, and vice versa. Their friendship has a history that extends through Harry’s adult life.


Kate started dating William in 2003, after meeting him at the University of St Andrews. Soon after, she met Harry.


He was still a teenager, about to leave Eton, and was deciding what to do with his life. After an extended gap year, when he travelled to Australia and Lesotho, he finally went to Sandhurst in 2005.



According to a source at St Andrews: ‘From the earliest days, Kate always maintained an open-door policy to Prince Harry.


‘While they were students she always made him feel welcome at the four-bedroom cottage they rented on distant royal cousin Henry Cheape’s estate, Strathtyrum, just outside St Andrews. The three also spent weekends together at the cottage, Tam-na-Ghar, on the Balmoral estate.’


Another insider said: ‘Cynics — the sort that said she deliberately swapped Edinburgh University for St Andrews when she found out William was going there — might say she knew that getting on with Harry was key to her relationship with William.
