Why Kate Middleton Is Mortified By Meghan Markle
Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have never been the closest of sisters-in-law, if an US Weekly source is to be believed. Revealing that Kate and Meghan allegedly haven’t spoken in a year, the palace insider partially blamed their drift on their respective husbands, Prince William and Prince Harry.
Although William and Harry were reportedly attempting to their own broken relations earlier in 2021, the US Weekly source said in March that things were just as frosty. “Harry and William have communicated sparingly over the last year, but none of their communications have been friendly in quite some time,” the source elaborated, adding, “There is real animosity that the brothers have toward one another, and that has spilled over to Meghan and Kate’s relationship, making it very hard for them to be friends or even friendly.”
A week following Meghan and Harry’s March 7, 2021 Oprah Winfrey interview, reports have surfaced that Kate is not just being distant, but closer to downright angry with the Duchess of Sussex. Read on for the details behind her reaction to the ex-senior royals’ primetime sit-down.
Kate Middleton thought her beef with Meghan Markle was water under the bridge
In an interview with OK! Magazine (via the Daily Mail), royal expert Katie Nicholl claimed Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton was “mortified” by sister-in-law Meghan Markle’s claim in her March 2021 Oprah Winfrey interview that Kate made her cry prior to her 2018 nuptials. Via Harper’s Bazaar, the Duchess of Sussex’s exact words were: “A few days before the wedding, she was upset about something pertaining to… flower girl dresses. And it made me cry.” Meghan’s revelation was itself a clarification of widespread rumors that she was the one who elicited tears from Kate amidst a fight.
Meghan did volunteer to Oprah that Kate “owned it… and she brought me flowers and a note apologizing,” and added that “she did what I would do if I knew that I hurt someone, to just take accountability for it.” Kate allegedly still took less-than-kindly to Meghan spilling the beans over this incident in the first place. According to Nicholl, the Duchess deemed the years-old affair settled, especially given that “Kate is not in a position to respond and Meghan and Harry know that.”
According to Meghan herself — when shown a photo of her and Kate laughing at Wimbledon together — “nothing is what it looks like” in regards to the pair’s relationship. Ouch — seems like things will be frigid for a while between the two duchesses.
