We've seen a lot of the Duchess of Cambridge's marriage with Prince William, and obsessed over Prince Harry's romance with Meghan Markle, but we don't know much about Kate and Harry's relationship as in-laws. However, the Prince's new interview with Newsweek sheds light on his and the Duchess' close bond.

An excerpt from the feature reads:

There was no filling the hole left by Diana's death, and Harry seemed to be growing up without someone emotionally available he could lean on. Kate has helped fill some of that gap. When she and William got engaged, Harry called her the big sister he never had. He often pops into their apartment at Kensington Palace, where she cooks him a meal—roast chicken is reportedly a particular favorite.

Both in-laws live in Kensington Palace in central London, according to Newsweek, but Harry, 32, lives in a two-bedroom cottage on the grounds while Kate and William, both 35, live in a 22-room apartment in the palace itself. The proximity makes it easy for the two to bond and for Harry to play uncle to Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Apparently their downtime together often includes Game of Thrones binges, too.

"Harry appeals to her sillier side because he is carefree, footloose and loves banter. He finds things funny about people and says so," source told Daily Mail last year. "Kate also adores the way Harry plays with her children—he is very good with them, a charming big kid and silly uncle."

Kate was always reportedly welcoming to Harry, even when she and William were still dating as students at St. Andrews University. Now, they and the Duke of Cambridge often carry out royal duties together, like helming Heads Together, their joint campaign on raising awareness on mental health.

Take a look at their sweet moments through the years below.
