Kate Middleton's uncle has said she is "trying to mediate" and "bring peace" to the Royal family following Prince Harry's recent interviews.
Gary Goldsmith, 56, is the brother of Kate's mother Carole and has described his 39 year old niece as a "brilliant arbiter and peacemaker" who is doing "everything she can" to help her husband Prince William and his brother Prince Harry.
He also said Harry, 36, who has shocked the public with his remarks about his family, needs to "get a grip" and stop his "self-indulgent episode" before there is "no common ground or relationship to rebuild."
Recruitment consultant Gary said everybody has been left "astonished" by Harry's interviews, in which he has accused members of the Royal family of being "racist" and "neglecting" him and wife Meghan Markle.
He told Closer magazine: "If you want an easy life, work it out privately and have a conversation respectfully. Don't air it in public, it's really hurtful.
"The harsh truth – in my opinion – is that if Harry doesn't get a grip and stop this self-indulgent episode, there will soon be no common ground or relationship to rebuild.
"But if anyone can bring peace to the royals, Kate can. Kate is a brilliant arbiter and peacemaker.
"Every bone in her body is about making friends and doing the best she can… she's trying to mediate."
Kate's uncle's comments come days after an expert observed that she is the "glue" holding the Royal family together.
Royal expert Katie Nicholl spoke to 60 Minutes Australia and explained why she sees Kate as the royal family's "greatest asset".

She said: "The royal family realise they have a really important key player here and they're bringing her centre stage."
Referring to The late Duke of Edinburgh, the royal expert continued: "He was the patriarch of the family. I see Kate stepping into that role. Trying to keep things together."
The royal expert continued to speculate over whether Prince Charles and Camilla will take the crown after the Queen, or if the monarchy would skip them and go straight to William and Kate.
Katie said: "A lot of people think it would make more sense to skip a generation and let the crown move straight to William and Kate. Possibly they might prove a more popular King and Queen than Charles and Camilla."
She continued: "But the idea of breaking constitution and that is essentially everything the Royal Family is built upon is really something that's not going to happen. William and Kate are perfect vehicle for good PR."
She also claimed that we've "seen a different side to the royals" and that Kate and William have been "more real and relatable."
