Kate heartbreak: ‘Lonely’ Duchess devastated as she loses another ‘important ally’ – Express

KATE, the Duchess of Cambridge suffered a major setback after it was revealed that she may be losing an “incredibly valuable” confidant in the Royal Family.

The Queen’s grandson Peter Phillips and his wife Autumn have announced that they are separating after 12 years of marriage. Royal commentator Angela Mollard spoke to New Idea’s Zoe Burrell on the Royals podcast abut the tumultuous situation surrounding the divorce. Ms Mollard noted that the Duchess of Cambridge, who is known to be “quite good friends” with Mrs Phillips may be impacted hard by losing an “ally”.

She told listeners: “We’ve often seen their kids playing together, we’ve seen them at polo together.

“You’ve got those balcony scenes where Isla and Savannah, and I think it’s Savannah that has her hand over George’s mouth.

“Kate was really good friends with Autumn.

“In fact, she went to Autumn’s wedding as one of her first official engagements on her own in 2008 because Prince William was in Kenya.”

Ms Mollard continued: “He was away, they weren’t engaged at this stage, the wedding was at Windsor Castle.

“She sort of represented the couple and has been really good friends with Autumn ever since.

“It’s very hard for someone like Kate. You’ve got your own direct family and then you’ve got friends who you would trust, and I don’t imagine there’d be many of them.

“You have to know that anything you say doesn’t get passed on.”

The royal commentator added: “The special creed within the Royal Family of non-disclosure means that speaking to someone like Autumn with more depth is refreshing.

“They have so many shallow conversations every day, they have to speak so generically about everything, she has to think about what she’s saying all the time.

“For Kate, properly talking to someone like Autumn must be incredibly valuable.”

Ms Mollard also said: “I know she has a sister and a mum but most of us have more than a couple of people we can confide in.

“You have to just hope that that relationship doesn’t change.

“Being in the Royal Family at times must be incredible lonely, to have allies is very important.”

In addition to the Phillips family, it was revealed that Lord Snowdon, Princess Margaret’s son, and his wife Serena had been living separate lives for many months.

The Queen’s nephew announced that he and Serena are officially divorcing too and that it is amicable.
