Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle: Do The Two Royals Click?

Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle: Do The Two Royals Click?

The British royal family has always been a subject of fascination, and the dynamics between its members are endlessly dissected. Among the most scrutinized relationships? That of Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex.

When Meghan Markle joined the royal fold after her marriage to Prince Harry in 2018, expectations were high.

The world watched as she and Kate Middleton, already established as the future Queen Consort, navigated their roles. But insiders reveal that their connection was never as warm as the public hoped.

"It’s something that I could see," Seward told Fox News Digital. "Kate, Harry and [Prince] William were a really close-knit trio. … They all got on really well. And Harry was constantly around at Kensington Palace having supper with them, borrowing things from their fridge."

"Every time he had a new girlfriend, the first person that would meet her would be Kate," Seward said. "And then Meghan came into the mix, and it was disruptive. It wasn’t like the other girlfriends. There [wasn’t] that warm feeling. I think it started on the wrong foot."

"Kate wanted to like Meghan, but it didn’t work out that way," Seward added.

One pivotal moment stands out: Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress during Meghan’s wedding. Rumors swirled that the two duchesses clashed over the choice of dress. While some reports suggested tears were shed, others downplayed the incident. But it left a lingering impression.

Seward previously told The Telegraph that "maybe Harry was a little in love with Kate."

"I don’t mean physically, but mentally," she told the outlet. "He always longed for a sister; he told [his mother, Princess] Diana that. Psychologically, I think he just adored her, and he was always there, at Kensington Palace, in their fridge, you know, ‘What’s for supper?’

"I think that Meghan must have been incredibly envious and then jealous of Kate," Seward said. "I heard Meghan actually thought she was going to be a princess and live in Windsor Castle. Instead, there’s William and Kate with this beautiful house, while they are stuck in Nottingham Cottage, which Harry used to call ‘my hovel.’"

As Meghan and Harry stepped back from royal duties, the rift between the couples deepened. Kate, ever loyal to tradition, remained committed to her role. Meghan, outspoken and passionate, sought a different path. Their contrasting approaches fueled speculation and headlines.

In their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan and Harry laid bare their struggles within the monarchy. While Kate wasn’t directly implicated, the interview cast a shadow over the entire family. Kate’s silence spoke volumes, adhering to the royal mantra: “Never complain, never explain.”

When Queen Elizabeth II passed away, the “Fab Four” reunited for the funeral. Kate and Meghan exchanged polite nods, but the warmth was absent. The world wondered: Could they ever bridge the gap?

"Meghan Markle and the Princess of Wales will never be friends," Schofield said. "Prince Harry solidified that with the publication of his memoir, ‘Spare,’ although Meghan Markle originally crossed the line with the … complaints disguised as being the bigger person via the Oprah Winfrey interview. Despite the betrayal, Harry will always have a place in Catherine’s heart because she … knew a very different Harry."

"There is no love lost with Meghan Markle," Schofield added.
