Kate Middleton is adding mediator to her royal resume.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 39, will act as a “peacemaker” of sorts to help Prince William and Prince Harry put on a “unified” front for the Queen at Prince Philip’s funeral over the weekend, the Daily Telegraph reported on Tuesday.
The princes have not seen each other in over a year since Harry and his wife Meghan Markle stepped down as senior royals. While tensions are high in the royal family, the publication reported that it is believed Middleton is ready to step in if necessary to help the brothers as she is close with both of the boys.
“They know it is not about them on Saturday – it is about honoring their grandfather’s memory and supporting their grandmother,” a royal source told the publication. “I would be extremely surprised if that wasn’t front and center of both their minds. They will be keen to spend time together as a family, in the same time zone for once.”
Another source added, “The entire focus is on the Queen. No exceptions. A family unified.”
