Kate Middleton’s video explained
Kate Middleton did not intend to shade Camilla even if she appeared to be doing so. In fact, the two royals were actually laughing. Middleton made a side-way glance to silently tell Camilla to stop from laughing.
Those who watched the coverage of the royal wedding agreed that Camilla and Middleton were talking and silently laughing. Some even questioned why they were acting that way when the preacher wasn’t funny at all.
Twitter users’ reaction to Kate Middleton giving Camilla a side-eye
Middleton’s video received mixed reactions from Twitter users. Some defended Middleton because they understood that the two were only trying to contain their laugher.
“They shared a knowing smile about the American preacher. He overdid it!! They were all trying to contain the laughter,” one commented.

Kate and Camila had just laughed at the preacher,and she was trying to not make it obviously by just looking at her with her eyes, after the laugh!

Meanwhile, others questioned the two royals for laughing during the ceremony. One said that the preacher was very passionate and not funny.
One user explained that Reverent Michael Curry’s animated speech was too loud and long for the British Royals.
He said beautiful words, but was getting too loud and passionate for the British Royals. He should had kept it short imo, he took a lot of time from the wedding and people stopped following. My national tv cut many times to comment things in studio while he was talking.

Kate Middleton and Camilla Parker Bowles share an amazing relationship
Even if Middleton and Camilla are not often seen together, the two have a great relationship. In fact, according to royal biographer Marcia Moody in her 2013 book Kate: A Biography, Camilla could make Middleton cry with laughter.
Also, Camilla made an effort before Middleton became an official member of the royal family. She invited Middleton for lunch with some of their friends. Their lunch date lasted for three hours and the group was laughing and joking the whole time.
