Kate Middleton News: Princess Diana Reportedly Advised The Duchess On Protocol | Royal | News

Princess Diana and Kate would have enjoyed each other’s company, according to confidante and healer of the late Princess of Wales, Simone Simmons. Had she been alive to meet her firstborn’s wife, Diana would also have shown her the ropes and advice on how to navigate the cabinet, the insider added.

She would have advised Kate in particular how to behave in matters of royal protocol, believes the confidant.

Ms Simmons told the Daily Mail: “Diana would have loved Kate because she is down to earth and understands William deeply.

“When they look at each other, it seems like a million words pass between them.

“I’m sure Diana and Kate would have been good friends.

“I can see them dating, laughing and enjoying each other’s company.

“Like William, Kate has a great sense of humor.

“She reportedly explained that it is not always easy to get along with the royal family and that when it comes to protocols, she should do what she thinks is right and what is expected of her.

“I believe that’s what Kate did.”

Ms Simmons became friends with Princess Diana after they met at The Hale Clinic for alternative medicine.

Diana, who would have turned 60 in July 2021, died in a car crash in Paris in 1997.

Prince William met Kate at St Andrews University in 2001 and reportedly started dating her a few months later after developing a strong friendship with her.

Kate and Prince William are making sure their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, grow up knowing the late Princess of Wales.


Appearing in Diana’s 2017 documentary, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy, the Duke of Cambridge said he wanted his children to “know who she was and that she existed.”

He described how he “constantly” told them about “Granny Diana” at bedtime.

It lets them know that there are “two grandmothers in their life,” William said at the time.

He added: “We now have more pictures of her in the house and we are talking about her a bit.”

Prince William’s words about Diana have clearly already had an impact on his two oldest children.

On Mother’s Day last year, Kensington Palace shared cards created by George and Charlotte for their ‘Granny Diana’.

On her card, Princess Charlotte drew a colorful heart surrounded by adorable stickers on pink paper and wrote: “Dear Granny Diana,

“Thinking of you for Mother’s Day. I love you very much. Daddy misses you.”

The princess signed her card writing: “Much love Charlotte”.

Likewise, Prince George wrote another message on a sheet of green paper.

It read: “Dear Grandmother Diana, Happy Mother’s Day.

“I love you very much and always think of you.

“Send much love from George.”
