Queen Elizabeth II and Kate Middleton have reportedly become allies over the years.

According to Daily Mail’s Bianca London, the Duchess of Cambridge no longer needs Prince William by her side as much because she has the Queen to give her support. In 2015, Middleton joined Queen Elizabeth in her first state banquet in honor of Chinese President Xi Jinping. During the event, London said that Middleton spoke confidently to the Queen and was the monarch’s perfect ally. The Queen and Middleton’s interaction was apparently a sign of a strong bond as they grew very close over the years.

Queen Elizabeth II was reportedly “very fond” of Middleton. But this wasn’t the only time that the Queen and Duchess of Cambridge joined forces as they promoted the monarchy. Here are some of Queen Elizabeth II and Middleton’s key moments together over the years.
