“The King has always had a close, warm and unique relationship with the princess,” said a source to the British newspaper, The Times. ”She has a great love and respect for him and his position. When they were in hospital together there was a lot of toddling down the corridor to spend time with her. He has been encouraging and supporting her throughout.”

“There is a very strong relationship between their majesties and the Waleses. They are very close, even more so at the moment,” continued the source.

The source revealed that both Charles and Kate overlapped in the hospital, visiting each other and making sure they felt support over their stay.
