The Duchess has an unlikely helper to help her raise her baby Diana's way: Camilla
For years she’s been painted as the wicked witch of the Royal family – the ‘third person’ in Charles and Diana’s marriage.
So it’ll come as a surprise that Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, has become Kate Middleton’s closest ally as she prepares for Baby Cambridge – particularly as Kate’s determined to raise the baby Princess Diana’s way.
In a Now exclusive, we can reveal that Kate, 30, even sees Camilla, 65, as her ‘second mum’.
‘Kate’s been turning to her for advice and for a good laugh, too,’ says our royal source.
‘Camilla’s the life and soul of the party inside the Palace and Kate relies on her a lot, especially now she’s pregnant.’
Kate’s asked Camilla, who has two children and five grandchildren, for her support.
Their close relationship is a relief to Charles – and signals just how much Wills has accepted his stepmum.
