PRINCE William's relationship with the Queen has grown stronger as he helped Her Majesty navigate The Firm through a period of turbulence.
William visited the United Arab Emirates on behalf of the Queen to pass on her condolences following the death of the country’s ruler Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
As such, Royal expert Robert Jobson said William’s relationship with his grandmother has “improved” as their views have become “more aligned”.
Writing for the Evening Standard, Mr Jobson said: “She [the Queen] has helped, too, to guide William through his formative years and has proved a great role model for the future king.
“Since Philip’s passing, the Queen has turned to Charles and William more and more.
“Indeed, both helped her navigate their way through the Harry debacle, as well as Prince Andrew’s removal from public life following the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.”

Theresa May’s ex-adviser warns Charles is ‘in danger of becoming too political’
Theresa May’s former adviser, Nick Timothy, wrote in the Telegraph: “As we contemplate that change, the spectre of politics haunts the monarchy.
“For expectations are changing. Where once members of the Royal Family could remain reserved, distant, even aloof, today they are expected to emote and opine.
“Just as businesses, charities and other institutions are pressured to comment on just about everything, and bring about social change through adherence to disputed political beliefs and theories, so will the monarchy.
“And regardless of public pressure, some royals will want to do so.”

Philip’s fury at Sussexes over Megxit demands
The Sussexes choices and demands around Megxit led Prince Philip to exclaim, “What the hell are they playing at?”, a royal author has claimed.

“Later, Prince Philip’s indignant response to the couple’s declaration of independence was: ‘What the hell are they playing at?’”
