Will Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton Become Best Friends After All?

Kate Middleton has been a fixture Prince William’s life since her college days. When the two finally married in 2011, it seemed that her popularity went through the roof.

Fast forward a few years, and suddenly Prince Harry was involved in a serious relationship with American actress Meghan Markle, putting the world on ring watch. It wasn’t long before we were watching live coverage of one of the most amazing royal weddings to date. It seemed that Meghan was about to begin living the ultimate fairy tale, marrying a prince, living in a palace, and being a member of one of the most famous families in the world.

In addition, most of us thought Meghan and Kate would become inseparable, bonding over royal life and spending their free time together. While this didn’t happen at first, there is still time. So, will Kate and Meghan become best friends after all?

Rumors of a royal feud

For the past year, we have heard so many rumors of a feud between the two duchesses that it is becoming difficult to even keep track. There have been countless explanations as to why there may be tension between Meghan and Kate, with some saying the more reserved Duchess of Cambridge couldn’t handle her new sister-in-law’s strong personality, and others going so far as to say they weren’t even on speaking terms.

Things got so bad, in fact, that reports came out the real feud was actually between Harry and William, and that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were moving to Windsor since the two couples couldn’t bear to live in close proximity to each other. Luckily, these rumors are beginning to die down, as Meghan and Kate have been seen interacting and getting along just fine.

Did Meghan’s celebrity status get in the way?

As we all know, Meghan was famous long before she met Prince Harry. Kate, on the other hand, was known as a “commoner,” having come from a hardworking family and meeting William at the University of St. Andrews. Some people may have felt that Meghan’s status as a celebrity caused some problems between the two, at least at first.

As time has passed, we can see that this is certainly not the case, since Kate is not the type of person to be jealous of anyone.

Different personalities

Just like everyone in the entire world, Meghan and Kate have different personalities. Meghan is outspoken and has strong beliefs. She also has a close circle of celebrity friends, most of whom we saw attending her New York City baby shower a few months ago.

Kate, by comparison, is much quieter than Harry’s wife. As a future queen, she knows that she is being watched a little more closely, and must behave in a certain way, never going against what royal life dictates. Meghan is a well-known bender of the rules.

Can the two become best friends after all?

Now that Meghan has officially entered the world of motherhood, she and Kate have something wonderful to bond over. The birth of baby Archie Harrison has the potential to bring the two duchesses closer together, and chances are, they will be talking more and spending more time together.

Kate even paid Meghan a visit at Frogmore Cottage shortly before she gave birth, proving that their relationship is getting even stronger.

Perhaps Meghan and Kate’s friendship will be able to reach new levels, and although they may not become best friends as everyone had hoped for, they will get closer as time moves forward.
