The pair have often been spotted laughing and joking together at royal engagements and are known to share the same sense of humour.

However, their closeness runs far deeper than just good banter, and Kate is reported to have fast established herself as a rock within the family since she joined a decade ago.

When Kate and William announced their engagement back in 2011, the Duchess was quick to mention her excitement about her then future in laws, saying that Charles had been "very, very welcoming and very friendly" to her.

While the future King said at the time that he was "thrilled" and "delighted" about the news of the forthcoming nuptials and his son’s proposal.

In the years following the marriage, Kate appeared to integrate seamlessly into the royal family and her relationship with her father in law continues to flourish.

It’s also been reported that Kate has proven to be the perfect mediator between father and son when they haven’t always agreed on everything.

Body language expert Judi James has previously studied photos of the family together and observes the effect Kate seems to have on the pair.

It’s believed that the Mum of three has played an important role in keeping the family on good terms during tougher times.

Judi told the Express: "There have been rumours that William and his father haven't always seen eye to eye.

"But with Kate present the mood between the two men does seem to lighten.

"While the two men point and laugh open-mouthed to suggest there’s some kind of banter going on between them, Kate’s polite attention to Charles and her appreciative smiles as he chuckles suggests she might have mended a few bridges between them over the years."

The 39 year old was recently seen comforting Charles as they both attended the funeral of his father, Prince Philip.

Judi added: "At his father’s funeral, as he was visibly moved by grief and even tearful at times, it was Kate who was spotted placing a comforting arm around Charles’s shoulders.

"It was a very tactile and spontaneous gesture of open affection that seemed surprising at the time.

"Both Kate and her father-in-law are known for their rather politely formal body language displays at the bigger royal occasions and neither are overly tactile.”
