IT HAS BEEN revealed Prince William broke tradition by making a promise to his wife, Kate, during their engagement - but Prince Harry has not had to make a similar promise to Meghan Markle.
During their engagement, William promised his then-fiancée that she would not have to leave her family behind after she married into the Windsors.
After seven years of marriage, the Duke of Cambridge has kept his promise.
Vanity Fair writer Katie Nicholl explained the close relationship to the Middletons on the documentary “Kate Middleton: Working Class to Windsor”.
She said: “Once you married into the Royal Family, you became a Windsor and that was that.
“When William asked Kate to marry him, he made it very clear that she wouldn’t have to leave her family behind her once she married into his family.
“He promised her that they’d always stay a part of the family and they have done.
“Whether it’s joining the Queen at Ascot or being on an important barge within the Queen’s fleet at the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, they’ve been there.”
Kate’s entire family was at Harry and Meghan’s wedding in May of this year which was interpreted as a sign that the Middleton’s have become a part of the larger family.
In May 2017, Pippa Middleton married James Matthews and allowed for Harry to bring is now wife Meghan with him to the reception in the evening.
However, it is believed that only Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland will be close to the Royal Family.
