Kate Middleton is making sure to keep away from the drama amid the royal rift between King Charles, Prince William and Prince Harry.

The Princess of Wales, who is taking some time off from royal duties to convalesce from her cancer diagnosis, is emulating a royal member of the family and avoid petty rows, per royal historian Gareth Russell.

“I do think the Princess of Wales is very like the late Queen Mother,” Russell told The Sun, emphasising her tactics to deal with royal matters.

“The Queen Mother in her lifetime was an extraordinarily popular figure, even into the 1990s she was outpolling Diana, sometimes as the nation's favourite royal. She was hugely, hugely popular and part of the secret that she had was that she sees it as a marathon, not a sprint.”

Russell continued, “And I do think Kate has that very clear long-term vision of you don’t sweat the everyday. You plan five, 10, 15 years and you don't really let yourself get dragged into easily by the smaller details or the headlines every week.”

The historian also noted that Kate “ignores petty rows” in a similar way to the late Queen Mother, especially when it comes to the ongoing rift between Prince Harry.

Prince William is reportedly “furious” with Prince Harry for his unofficial royal tour. Other than that, the William and Harry have been estranged since the Duke of Sussex expressed his grievances with the royal family, particularly his elder brother.
