Kate Middleton has given Prince William the things his family could not, an expert has said.
Having now been together for 12 years, the story of Wills and Kate is one beloved by the nation since their meeting at St Andrews University.
According to former BBC royal correspondent Jennie Bond, their sweet relationship is owed to their tight connection – especially when it is contrasted to the often hectic and traumatic life Wills grew up in.

Kate how now been in the future king’s life for longer than his mother Diana was, and Jennie reckons that the Middleton family has provided him with so much of of what he missed out on.
Speaking toOK! , she explained: "There is no doubt that Kate has given William everything that was lacking in his own family life: a loving, deep partnership, founded on friendship, passion, and mutual respect, plus a broader, settled and happy relationship with his in-laws.
"Michael and Carole Middleton welcomed William into their home and treated him like one of the family. He can relax with them, trust them, and be himself in a way he can do with only a very few others."
Jennie added: "William is much closer to his father these days, but I think it’s the women in his life who have helped make him the man he is. His grandmother, the late Queen, was there for him – as he said – through the happiest and saddest times of his life.
"His mother’s influence is still very much evident in the relaxed and informal way he interacts with people, and in his determination to help people less well off than himself, in particular, the homeless.

"It was, of course, Diana, who first showed her sons the plight of homeless people. Now, William has said that he wants his own children to be fully aware of how privileged they are and how other people may sometimes need a little help.”
She continued: "And then there is Catherine’s influence: they have known one another now for more than 20 years – longer than William knew his own mother – and she has won not only his deep love, but his respect.
"He might feel a little aggrieved when he is cut out of pictures at events they both attend, but he is proud of his wife for the way she has made such a success of the role that came with marrying him."
