Kate Middleton had been quite close to her brother-in-law Prince Harry during the initial days of her marriage, before things went downhill in the royal family.
The Duke of Susse**x, who was the best man at Prince William and Kates 2011 nuptials had famously made his new sister-in-law cry by delivering a heartfelt and touching best man speech.
Katie Nicholl wrote in her book, Harry: Life, Loss and Love, that Harrys touching speech left the Duchess of Cambridge in tears.
It was affectionate, warm, and funny and touched William deeply. And when he said the couples decade-long romance was his inspiration Kate shed a tear, wrote Nicholl.
At one point, Harry is said to have called William the perfect brother and said he loved Kate like a sister.’
Before the two brothers drifted apart, they were inseparable as Harry was the best man and ring bearer for William.
