Kate Middleton “saved” Prince William following his “dysfunctional upbringing”, a royal expert has claimed.
The Duchess of Cambridge has also dedicated her life to lifting his spirits. And it is claimed Kate has helped build William up as a husband and family man.
Appearing on True Royalty TV, Angela Levin claimed the Duke of Cambridge was “in a very difficult place” following his mother’s death.
Why was upbringing of Prince William ‘dysfunctional’?
William was just 15 when Princess Diana died in 1997.
He was also just a young boy when his parents’ marriage broke down in the early 1990s.
Kate Middleton’s whole life is to make him happy, I think.
But despite these family problems, Levin reckons Kate has been key to William’s healing over the years.
She noted a list of positive attributes Kate has brought to her husband’s life during a look back at the first decade of the couple’s marriage.
How Kate Middleton ‘saved’ Prince William
Levin reflected: “I think that Kate has helped save William.
“I think it was very difficult for him coming out of a dysfunctional family, losing his mum so young and I think he was in a very difficult place.”
She continued: “[Kate] has really encouraged him. Her whole life is to make him happy, I think. She found things that really make him feel important and worthy rather than just going to cut ribbons.”
Levin also suggested William has grown as a family man after spending time outside of his family bubble and with the Middletons.
The commentator added: “I think [Kate] has helped him to be a husband by introducing him to her own family a lot and spending time with a normal family and being a dad.”
Kate ‘helps William and Charles to mend relationship’
A few weeks ago it was claimed Kate has also helped repair the relationship between William and his father.
According to the MailOnline, Kate was responsible for organising a family portrait for Prince Charles’ 70th birthday.
The photo opportunity, which took place in 2018, came at a time when there were rumours of a rift among the royals.
Kate was also said to be behind moves to ensure the two royals heirs spent more time together last summer.
A royal insider said: “Prince Charles is giving William much more input. He realises that his own reign will be a shorter one than his son’s, and therefore it is crucial that William is involved in all long-term planning.”
“They have been spending more time together and are much more aligned. Both are more comfortable in their own skin – and with each other.”
