Kate, 38, became an auntie for a third time last week after her sister Pippa Middleton, 37, gave birth to her second child, Grace Elizabeth Jane. Little Grace is Kate’s first niece as she already has two nephews – Pippa’s first born, Arthur and Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son, Archie.
Royal expert Katie Nicholl says the new arrival has “put a smile back” on Kate’s face following a “difficult few weeks”.
The Royal Family was rocked earlier this month following the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Kate found herself embroiled in the Megxit spat after Meghan brought up their now infamous row during a bridesmaid’s dress fitting.
The health of Prince Philip, 99, has also been a major concern for the family, after the Duke of Edinburgh spent a month in hospital following treatment on an existing heart condition.
Speaking to OK! Magazine, Ms Nicholl said: “Pippa’s baby joy has been a welcome distraction for Kate after a difficult few weeks.
“It’s really put a smile back on her face.”
Kate, a mother-of-three, was dragged into Meghan and Harry’s attack on the Palace during their tell-all interview with Oprah.
The Duchess of Sussex claimed Kate made her cry during a dress fitting in the lead up to her wedding to Harry in 2018 – contrary to previous reports which had the altercation the other way round.
Meghan told Oprah that Kate had apologised and gave her flowers with a note attached.
Meghan said: “It was a really hard week of the wedding, and she was upset about something, but she owned it, and she apologised.
“And she brought me flowers and a note apologising and she did what I would do if I knew that I hurt someone. To just take accountability for it.”
The royal author explained the news of Pippa’s baby has helped to provide a return to “normality” for Kate and Prince William.
Ms Nicholl also gave an insight into how close the royals are to William’s in-laws Carole, 66, and Michael Middleton, 71.
Ms Nicholl said: “It’s a real sense of normality amid any chaos. William has always loved spending time with all the Middletons as it’s his escapism.
“He’s close to Carole and Michael and always insisted the royal family treat them well, which the Queen has done. She welcomed them with open arms.”
Pippa and her husband James Matthews, 45, welcomed their new born into the world on Monday, March 15.

Ms Nicholl explained Pippa gave a special nod to her sister Kate and mother Carole, by giving her new born the same middle name, Elizabeth.
The royal author said: “Family is everything to Kate and she is so close to Pippa.
“Pippa giving Grace the same middle name as Kate and Carole will be such a touching tribute and mean so much to them.”
