Queen Elizabeth wants Catherine's help
Aug 31, 2012, 12:02 GMT
Britain's Queen Elizabeth has reportedly implored Duchess Catherine to help Prince Harry.
The 86-year-old monarch was said to be upset when her grandson was photographed naked during a game of strip billiards in Las Vegas and has turned to the duchess to help restore the royal family's image.
Daily Beast royal commentator Tom Sykes told In Touch: 'She is very serious about the royal family's responsibilities and Harry has blackened their name.
'The queen is turning to Kate to do some major damage control.'
Duchess Catherine and Harry share a close bond and insiders say she has tried to take him under her wing since marrying his brother Prince William in April 2011.
An insider said: 'Harry hasn't had a mother figure in his life for years but Kate has really taken him under her wing. They've grown very close and he's said many times she's the sister he's always wanted.
'She feels that it's her responsibility to guide him. She's trying very hard to be a good big sister to Harry.'
