The Duchess of Cambridge, 39, was praised for acting as a peacemaker between warring brothers Prince William and Prince Harry at the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral. Kate also demonstrated what has been seen as her deepening relationship with Prince Charles and the Queen.
The Duchess was spotted kissing her father-in-law the Prince of Wales, who was visibly distraught, on the cheek at one point.
And she wore a pearl choker necklace borrowed from Her Majesty.
The Mirror’s royal editor Russell Myers said Kate’s role as a “core member” of the Royal Family was “cemented” at Philip’s funeral.

“With the Duke and Duchess of Sussex out of the picture, and never likely to return, one would think this is their time.
“At one stage they may have thought that they were being over-burdened but in reality they have a clear run.
“They can work on the projects they want to and which they feel can make the most impact. But they can also carry on the work of the monarchy in their own way, upholding the values of those who came before them while making it relevant for a new generation.
“It’s going to be a very exciting time.”
