Camilla’s ‘warning to Kate Middleton over relationship with Prince William’

The two have grown close over the years

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, reportedly once gave Kate Middleton some marriage advice.

Camilla and Kate have grown closer in recent years, and it seems behind the scenes Camilla has kept an eye on the Duchess of Cambridge.

In 2020, it was claimed that Camilla had offered some advice that would help Prince William and Kate’s relationship stay the long course.

Her advice holds weight to it considering the Duchess of Cornwall has been in a relationship with Prince Charles for decades.

According to royal author Robert Lacey, Camilla’s handy tip for Kate was to make sure her life follows the way William leads his.
