Kate Middleton has helped Prince William become "more relatable" and is his "most trusted adviser," a royal biographer has claimed.
In new book "William at 40," which will be published on 9th June, Robert Jobson credits the Duchess of Cambridge for the positive influence she's had on husband Prince William – who will be celebrating his 40th birthday on 21st June.
Speaking of how the mother-of-three stepped up to royal duties during the Covid-19 pandemic, Jobson writes: "As crisis followed crisis, smiling Catherine hasn’t put a foot wrong."
He goes on to explain how as the nation was forced into lockdown, the Duchess took on extra engagements and made public appearances virtually – and also publicly, as soon as they were allowed.
The royal commentator notes: "With Catherine at his side, the prince seems more assured, their chemistry clear for all to see."
"Every step of the way, Catherine has put duty first."

Jobson – who explores the complex character of the man who will one day reign as King William V throughout the book – also describes how Kate's "confidence has grown" over time.
Offering an example, he refers to the moment the 40-year-old gave an unprecedented insight into her personal life while speaking to the Happy Mum Happy Baby podcast hosted by Giovanna Fletcher.

During the exchange, the royal, who described herself as a 'hands-on-mum', revealed that she constantly battles "mummy guilt" as she juggles motherhood and work.
Speaking on the topic in January last year, she commented: "Anyone who doesn't as a mother is actually lying."

"Even this morning, coming to the nursery visit here – George and Charlotte were like 'Mummy how could you possibly not be dropping us off as school this morning?' It's a constant challenge."
And according to the royal commentator, beneath Kate's "soft smile," there's "a tigress, passionate about her husband and a modern woman who will fight tooth and nail for her family."
He continues: "Her influence over William, whose presentation in the past used to be somewhat stiff and a little nervy, has helped him become more relatable, to be more himself.
With Catherine at his side, the prince seems more assured, their chemistry clear for all to see
"His sense of humour and warmth is now visible."
Jobson adds that Kate "never wants to let the side down" and always "pays close attention to detail."
"Not only is she William’s most trusted adviser, she is
someone who puts family and duty above all else," he writes.
