The father of fashion designer Alice Temperley has said the Duchess of Cambridge will not suffer a similar fate to the late Princess Diana because she “has everything going for her”.

The 31-year-old royal, who is currently expecting her first child with husband Prince William, has been a huge media target since marrying into the royal family in 2011, but unlike Prince William’s mother, she is able to deal with it because she has such a strong family around her.

Julian Temperley, whose daughter’s dresses have been worn by Kate, told the Daily Telegraph: “She has everything going for her, and everything Diana didn’t.

“She’s got her mother, her brother, sister, father. Diana didn’t have her family support, even at the beginning, and she was 10 years younger than Kate.”

Princess Diana - who was killed in a Paris car crash in August 1997 - struggled to cope with the press invasion into her life when she married Prince Charles in 1981, which got worse when the couple separated in 1995.
