She's supposedly happily married with two kids of her own, so you would think that Kate Middleton wouldn't be so worried about what her brother-in-law Prince Harry is doing or who he's seeing these days. Yet, that's not the case as there's a new report that says the Duchess is allegedly so close to Prince Harry that she weighs in on his dating life...and is not a fan of his choice in women.
In a new report by the Daily Mail on Friday, sources close to the royal family say that the Duchess is very much involved with Prince Harry's personal life so much so that she's very judgmental about the women he dates and is even picky with the things she likes and things she doesn't like with each girlfriend.
One source close to Kensington Palace dished, "Like the Queen, she wouldn't state her point of view, more ask questions,. If she didn't think his former girlfriends such as party-loving Chelsy Davy or actress Cressida Bonas were real runners, it would be because she knows more than anyone what marriage into 'The Firm' actually entails...Both Kate and Camilla have been working through their contacts books to look at prospectives for Harry. Discretion is key. Candidates must also be athletic, love animals, retain high levels of stamina, be reasonably well educated if not fiercely academic, have no unguarded 'mouthy' moments, be fun-loving, able to travel effortlessly and have no medical problems. A tall order in one girl!"
It seems the Duchess finds Prince Harry hilarious (as he's not as serious as her hubby Prince William) and he (according the the Daily Mail's source) "appeals to her sillier side because he is carefree, footloose and loves banter. He finds things funny about people and says so.
The insider added, "With one off-the-cuff remark Harry can defuse any row. And he hasn't got the attention span for Palace and family politics although he shares their dread of the Press. But he is no grudge bearer - quick to anger, quick to defuse - where William can be obstinate to the point of lunacy."
Prince William and Kate Middleton have been married since 2011 while Prince Harry has insisted that he's been single for the last year.
