Is Kim Kardashian Trying to Become Friends With Prince Harry and Meghan Markle?

Kim Kardashian has a lot of celebrity friends and contacts. After all, she began attracting attention in the early 2000s as a friend of socialite Paris Hilton.

Nowadays, she has been a public figure for over 10 years and knows all kinds of influential people around the world. It seems that Kardashian, the queen of reality TV, might also be looking to add some royalty into her contact list: There have been reports that she wants to become friends with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Recently, Kardashian shared her opinions on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. She praised them for their dedication to humanitarian causes even amidst all the negative news that they have been receiving.

“I think that everyone makes their own choices and decisions,” Kardashian said. “And I think that, like I said, no one’s gonna be perfect. I’m not, they’re not. I don’t know who is. I still love and value the fact they bring such attention to such important movements that need to happen and things that they’re really passionate about. They’re still changing the world.”

A few months ago, there were reports that Kardashian was trying to become friends with Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan. Allegedly, the reality TV star tried to get close to the royal couple by buying something nice for their newborn baby: Archie. She picked out some diamonds for Archie and a few designer clothing items.

A source shared: “The royal baby’s a perfect time for her to remind Meghan – and Harry – that she and Kanye are sincere, thoughtful people and she’s looking to stand out from all the other celebrities with something truly impressive.”

“Kim is convinced she and Meghan will be best friends one day,” the insider continued. “It’s very much a long-term project and she’s chipping away to impress her when the opportunities arise.”

It has not been revealed what the Sussexes’ reaction was to Kardashian’s gifts, but some insiders reported that Kardashian was also upset when Markle gave birth because Archie overshadowed Kardashian’s child, Psalm, who was born a few days after Archie.

In any case, it’s not clear whether Kardashian is still trying to befriend the Sussexes or not, but she seems to still have a positive view of them.

Is it possible for Kim Kardashian and the Sussexes to become close?

Prince Harry and Markle are not that estranged from the celebrity world. Markle used to be a Hollywood actress and she still has close ties to some celebrity friends, such as Priyanka Chopra, George Clooney, and Serena Williams. When Rihanna moved to London, there were reports that Markle and the singer started hanging out more.

Back in July, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex also went to the premiere of The Lion King, where the couple seemed to get on well with Beyonce and Jay-Z.

Prince Harry and Markle seem friendly with a lot of famous American celebrities, so it’s likely that they would not be opposed to being friends with reality stars like Kardashian and her husband, Kanye West.

A friendship between the two couples would also make a lot of sense since they have many things to bond over. There are not that many people who understand what it is like to live in the public eye and receive criticism constantly, though both couples have experienced this.

Moreover, Markle and Kardashian also have more in common than people think. Both women are working to make the world a better place. Markle focuses a lot of her charity work on women’s empowerment and sustainability. Meanwhile, Kardashian is studying law to help with criminal justice reform.
