Royal expert Valentine Low exclusively told Page Six that Kate, 41, is “tougher” than she lets on.
“Interestingly, behind the scenes, she’s a lot more steely, a lot tougher than we give her credit,” he said.
“You know, they think she’s slightly bland.”
Low said one example of the Princess of Wales’ steeliness occurred after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, which aired in March 2021.
Low said that Jean-Christophe Gray, Prince William’s newly appointed private secretary, came up with the memorable line, “recollections may vary” in the statement, implying that the Palace disagreed about what had happened.
“There were some people in other [royal] households, who felt it would antagonize Harry and Meghan and would go down badly and just keep the whole unpleasantness going,” Low explained.
