While the Duke of Sussex has openly spoken about strained relationships with members of the royal family, he has shared a close bond with sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, over the years.

The pair have known each other since they were teenagers with Kate having met Harry's brother, Prince William, while they were studying at the University of St Andrews.

As a royal girlfriend, she joined her future husband William on family holidays with Prince Charles and Harry. And at the Order of the Garter ceremony in Windsor in 2008, Harry made sure that Kate felt at ease at such a public outing by making her laugh.

When William and Kate announced their engagement in 2010, Harry was delighted for the pair, telling German newspaper Bild: "I've always wanted a sister and now I've got one. I've known Kate for years, and it's fantastic that she is becoming part of the family."

When the Cambridges and Prince Harry shared a joint household, they would often carry out engagements together. One of our favourite events was when William, Kate and Harry visited the Harry Potter film set at Warner Bros. Studios in 2013. The trio laughed as they played with wands during their tour.

The Duchess was also pregnant with her eldest child, Prince George, at the time, and Harry has previously spoken about his love for his nephews, George and Prince Louis, and niece, Princess Charlotte, telling The Daily Mail: "They are the most amazing things ever."

We wonder what Harry said to his sister-in-law to make her giggle so much on the balcony of Buckingham Palace as they attended Trooping the Colour in 2014. The pair often share a carriage in the procession, usually with the Duchess of Cornwall, and in recent years, Harry's wife Meghan Markle has joined them.
