What Will Kate Middleton’s Relationship Be With Baby Sussex?

The birth of Baby Sussex is just around the corner and the anticipation is building! With recent rumors of a royal feud between Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, many fans don’t know exactly how close the sisters-in-law are. When we also take into consideration that Meghan and Prince Harry are planning to move away from London to their new home at Frogmore cottage, it leaves us wondering what sort of a relationship Kate will have with the new royal baby.

She is a great mom to her own three small children, and a wonderful aunt to Arthur, the son of her sister, Pippa Middleton Matthews. With the arrival of Baby Sussex growing closer each day, we are thinking carefully about what Kate’s relationship will be with the newest addition to the royal family.

Are Kate and Meghan close?

No one really knows for sure! For months, it was thought the reason Meghan and Harry decided to move 40 miles outside of London was because of the strained relationship between the two duchesses. When they were seen warmly greeting each other with a kiss on the cheek at Westminster Abbey, those rumors seemed to go by the wayside. Also, it is being said that Kate is hosting a second baby shower for Meghan, so perhaps the two are pretty close after all.

What about Kate’s relationship with Harry?

Kate and Harry have always been adorably close. Ever since the Duchess of Cambridge joined the royal family, she and her brother-in-law have often been photographed laughing and joking around, proving that they are the best of friends. It was even thought at one time that Harry tends to go to Kate when he needs to talk or needs advice about something in his life, and he thinks of her as the big sister he never had. How cute is that?

Is Meghan close with the Cambridge children?

While we haven’t seen many pictures of the Duchess of Sussex interacting with the kids of Prince William and Kate, that certainly does not mean she does not have an excellent relationship with them. Little Prince George and Princess Charlotte served as members of the bridal party for Meghan and Harry’s wedding, and Meghan was seen attending the christening of Prince Louis looking genuinely happy. The public may not know whether or not the children call her “Auntie Meghan,” but it seems as if she adores them nonetheless!

What will Kate Middleton’s relationship be with Baby Sussex?

Chances are, Kate will have a wonderful relationship with the new royal baby. As the wife of a future king, she has always been somewhat reserved, so it only makes sense that she hasn’t spoken publicly about her excitement. However, when Meghan and Harry announced their engagement, she did make a statement when asked regarding her happiness for the couple. Kate is great with children and has very strong family values, so we can expect that while she is calm on the outside, on the inside, she is bursting with excitement.

Will the Cambridge children be close with their new cousin?

They most certainly will! Prince Louis and Baby Sussex have the added advantage of being close in age, so they will be growing up and sharing quite a few experiences together. George and Charlotte will likely adore their new cousin, and spend as much time with him or her as possible. It is wonderful for the children of the royal family to have each other to grow up with and lean on for support and advice. We can expect that as the years go by, they will not only be cousins and playmates but close friends as well!
