Kate Middleton’s BFF In Mourning Over Father’s Suicide

Kate Middleton’s close friend, Astrid Harbord, is in mourning after it was revealed that her father committed suicide on Tuesday.

The pretty socialite has been tied to the royal family for some time, having been romantically linked to Prince Harry after his split from Chelsy Davy three years ago.

Astrid has remained close friends with the red-haired prince and is one of Kate Middleton’s inner circle, attending the Duchess of Cambridge’s hen party ahead of the Royal Wedding last year.

It is believed that her father, Charles Harbord, was depressed over money problems after being forced to sell his £760,000 home and move into a rented flat.

Astrid has spoken to members of the press, explaining that Charles was an “amazing father” but that her family are “not quite ready to talk publicly about him yet.”

An inquest was opened and adjourned in Dorchester.

Our thoughts are with Astrid and her family at this difficult time.
