The Most Disappointing Thing About Meghan Markle Marrying Into the Royal Family

When Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced that they were getting married, fans couldn’t have been happier. Prince Harry had been one of the most famous bachelors in the world for years, and everyone was ecstatic about the fact that he was finally settling down.

Over the past year or so, Duchess Meghan hasn’t exactly had the easiest time. She and Harry experienced one of the worst summers that they possibly could have imagined, with everything they said or did making headlines in a negative way. Their lives have been a PR nightmare lately, and they even admitted in a recent documentary that they haven’t been having the easiest time with royal life.

However, as upsetting as this may be, it is not the worst part of what is happening. So, what is the most disappointing thing about Meghan Markle marrying into the royal family?

The royal trio included Prince Harry

For a long time before meeting Markle, Prince Harry was the world’s most “famous third wheel.” He, Prince William, and Kate Middleton were known as the “royal trio,” often making appearances together when carrying out their royal duties.

Hello! reports that the three of them shared many good times together, including a visit to the set of Harry Potter at the Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, Hertfordshire. In addition to that, Prince Harry, Prince William, and Duchess Kate attended the 2012 Olympics, visited schools, and even attended movie premieres together over the years. 

Fans thought that Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton would become instant best friends

When Prince Harry and Markle announced that they were in a serious relationship, fans around the world were eagerly anticipating what was to come. It was thought by many people that Duchess Meghan and Duchess Kate would instantly become best friends and that the royal trio would become the royal four.

Even before the royal wedding, it was pretty evident that this wasn’t the road that everyone was on. There were rumors of Duchess Kate leaving a bridesmaid’s dress fitting in tears, and soon after Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry were officially married, the Cambridges and the Sussexes shocked everyone when they unexpectedly split their royal households

There were rampant rumors of a royal feud

For months on end, there were all sorts of rumors circulating about a supposed feud between Duchess Meghan and Duchess Kate. Things got so bad, in fact, that when Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry announced that they were moving to Windsor, fans jumped to the conclusion that it was because the two couples couldn’t stand to live in such close proximity to each other.

We soon found out that this wasn’t the case, and Glamour can report that all is fine between the royal sisters-in-law. However, although they may have not been feuding as we thought for such a long time, they are not as close as we had hoped they would become after Duchess Meghan married into the family.

So, what is the most disappointing thing about Duchess Meghan marrying into the royal family? It is the fact that fans really hoped that Duchess Meghan and Duchess Kate would become the next Prince Diana and Sarah Ferguson by having a strong friendship — and that didn’t happen. The two couples, although cordial, just don’t have the closeness that everyone thought they would.

Royal fans were hoping to see many pictures of everyone having good times together, and the children interacting, and that hasn’t happened so far. We can only hope that the Cambridges and the Sussexes are happy, and in due time, a strong relationship will form.
