Royal expert Duncan Larcombe also spoke about the Queen and the Duchess of Cambridge's "fantastic relationship" previously. According to him, their bond is so tight that the future queen consort has a direct line to Her Majesty if she wants to talk to her.
"Kate strikes that balance between bowing to her as head of the royal family in public but being able to check in with her as the great-grandmother to her children," Larcombe said per Express, adding that Middleton has "her own direct line to speak to the Queen."
An unnamed source also supported Larcombe and Sean's statement. Middleton has reportedly gotten close to the 95-year-old monarch when they moved closer to her.
"They developed a deeper friendship after she and [Prince] William moved from Anmer Hall, Norfolk, to Kensington Palace, which is within walking distance of Buckingham Palace," the anonymous insider added.
A recent report claimed that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are planning to move to Windsor to be near Queen Elizabeth.
