Cape Town - Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge is reportedly Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s pillar of strength as she faces her on-going family drama.

The sisters-in-law seem to be warming up to each other and insiders say Kate is making an effort to support the newest member of the royal family as she battles a very public family spat, Express reports.

“Kate’s well aware of what Meghan is going through,” a source told Vanity Fair. “Her family have been dragged through the tabloids and she knows it’s not nice. She’s made a big effort to be kind to Meghan and look out for her.

“They speak on the phone and Kate makes a point of inviting Meghan over.”

Their budding friendship will likely be on display again when the two, with their hubbies Prince William and Prince Harry, attend the wedding of a close family friend, Charlie van Straubenzee, on 4 August, Hello magazine reports.
