Is Kate Middleton the Key to Fixing Prince William’s Relationship With Prince Harry?
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s participation in the documentary, Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, has stirred up a lot of drama in the royal family. While Queen Elizabeth deals with Prince Andrew’s disastrous interview about his ties to Jeffrey Epstein, inside sources claim that Kate Middleton is trying to patch things up with Harry and Meghan. But is Kate the key to mending Harry’s relationship with his older brother, Prince William?
Prince Harry confirms the feud rumors
Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, Kate Middleton, and Prince William have dealt with feud rumors for well over a year. They remained silent on the issue until Harry’s interview in the documentary, in which he revealed that his relationship with William has not always been great.
Although Prince Harry said that he still loves his brother dearly, he admitted that they are on much different paths. The comments alluded to earlier reports about how Harry is determined to forge his own way in the royal family — one reason he and Meghan moved out of Kensington Palace earlier this year.
To make things even more complicated, Meghan revealed that she has struggled with the constant media attention. The former actress confessed that she has been barely surviving behind the scenes, sparking rumors that the couple might leave the royal family altogether.
Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the royals were reportedly caught completely off-guard by the documentary, and with Queen Elizabeth dealing with Andrew’s mess, Kate Middleton has stepped up and is doing her best to make things right.
Kate Middleton tries to fix Prince William and Prince Harry’s relationship
According to E! Online, inside sources claim that Kate has been working behind the scenes to bridge the gap between William and Harry. Nobody wants to disappoint Queen Elizabeth, and it sounds like Kate is starting to work her magic.
“Behind the scenes, I’m told Kate is doing her best to bring everyone together and help Meghan,” Phil Dampier, an expert on the royal family, shared. “I’m told she has reached out to Meghan and spoken to her on the phone. Kate feels sorry for her and knows that Meghan is struggling.”
Kate Middleton can definitely relate to Meghan’s plight. The Duchess of Cambridge also struggled with media attention when she was dating William and has learned how to masterfully deal with the press over the years.
She also used to be super close to Harry, which could be how she will get the two brothers to start talking again. After all, their friendship is the reason Harry gave William their mother’s engagement ring when he proposed to Kate.
We can only hope that Kate succeeds in her mission, though it sounds like she has her work cut out.
Are Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle still feuding?
Aside from William and Harry, there have been rumors of a rift between Kate and Meghan. The feud reports have circulated for years, with some sources claiming that they do not get along behind closed doors.
Despite all of the rumors, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have always appeared happy together in public. If they are secretly fighting behind the scenes, they are doing an amazing job hiding it.
That said, things are not going the best for Meghan. In the documentary, the Duchess of Sussex admitted that life has been difficult the past two years, especially when it comes to dealing with the British tabloids.
Between the bad press and the strain on Harry’s relationship with William, Meghan admitted that she has been barely surviving at home. To make things even worse, Harry and Meghan recently confirmed that they will not be spending Christmas with the royal family this year.
The Sussexes skip Christmas at Sandringham
While the majority of the royals gather for Christmas at Sandringham later this month, Harry and Meghan will be spending the holiday with her mother, Doria Ragland, in Los Angeles.
Sources claim that Prince William and Kate Middleton were relieved when they found out about Harry and Meghan’s plans because they will not have to deal with all the drama.
For the Sussexes, skipping Christmas with Queen Elizabeth will give them a much-needed break from the royal family. It also gives them an opportunity to visit with her side of the family for a change.
An insider says that Meghan misses her mother a lot and is really looking forward to spending Christmas with her. Hopefully, the trip away will give Harry and Meghan time to recharge their batteries before they have to resume their royal duties.
Kate Middleton and Prince William have not confirmed that they are spending Christmas with Queen Elizabeth at Sandringham or not.
