Along with being a fashion icon and proud mama, it seems Kate Middleton is also known for being the British Royal family’s unofficial “peacemaker” — all because of something she did early on in her relationship with Prince William.

In her newly-updated biography Camilla, royal author Angela Levin claims that Kate got her unofficial title of “peacemaker” by doing these two things: easing tensions with William and King Charles, along with making an effort to be buddies with Camilla.

Kate reportedly did both of these things by planning bonding time with the King and Queen without William, and by interacting about their shared love of the arts.

Levin wrote, per DailyMail, “Fortunately, time helped improve Camilla’s relationship with senior Royals, including Prince William, largely thanks to the Princess of Wales, who is a peacemaker. Catherine has a love of the arts, which William doesn’t particularly share, and she often goes both privately and publicly with the Queen Consort and King Charles to see exhibitions.”

Levin added that Kate and Camilla bonded over their belief that “supporting their husbands is a priority.”

Because of this hard work, Kate ended up being reportedly able to smooth the animosity between Camilla and her stepson William, therefore helping William’s bond with his father.

While there have been quite a few reports of Camila seeing Kate as “too common” for William towards the beginning of the relationship, it seems that didn’t deter Kate from making the family happy!
