    a bit confused with this sentence

    I've read an article about Kate Middleton, and here is a sentence I'm a bit confused with:
    "She comes from a close-knit family, and maybe that's part of what we're seeing in her self-confidence," says Fowler. "She seems to know who she is. She's really quite a together girl after being under such scrutiny in the past few years."

    Dose the underlined part mean that Middleton's self-confidence comes from the fact she's close to her family?

    Many thanks.

    Middleton's self-confidence comes partly from the fact she's close to her family.
