Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle’s friendship seemed doomed from the start. While Meghan’s recent lawsuit with British tabloids shows how the media was vicious towards her from the get-go, news outlets seemed likewise interested in spreading the idea that the two women were always feuding.
According to British high society magazine Tatler, which features a profile of Middleton in its July/August 2020 issue, trouble started brewing before Meghan’s wedding to Prince Harry. One of the biggest incidents was in 2018, only a few weeks before their nuptials, when Kate was supposedly seen in tears, leaving a dress fitting for her daughter, Charlotte, who was a young bridesmaid at Meghan’s wedding.
The disagreement, believe it or not, was all about whether the young bridesmaids should wear tights. A friend of the Cambridges’ told Tatler,
“It was a hot day and apparently there was a row over whether the bridesmaids should wear tights or not. Kate, following protocol, felt that they should. Meghan didn’t want them to.”
Meanwhile, the Daily Mail points out that at William and Kate’s wedding in April 2011, all of the young bridesmaids were wearing tights, but at Meghan’s wedding, they were not.
The Telegraph points out, though, that it was a difficult time for Kate, as she had just given birth to Prince Louis and was likely quite emotional. Despite this, it seems like the small detail with the bridesmaids’ outfits caused a long-lasting rupture. But was their friendship doomed from the start?
The issue around Charlotte’s tights at Markle’s wedding is indicative of a larger difference between Markle and Middleton. The two women appear to approach the world with strikingly different attitudes. Kate is consistently quiet, respectful and poised while Meghan embodies, according to one write-up in The Blast, quote, “a more confident, exertive, and no nonsense personality.”
This sharp difference between the two women was precisely what made Meghan’s arrival into royal life so difficult. According to Us Weekly, Meghan felt that Kate set a very high standard but also a very particular standard that Meghan simply couldn’t embody, which left her feeling out of the public’s good graces. An insider told the outlet,
“Meghan has this sense of isolation being in the U.K., subject to cruel British media. Her hands are tied and she isn’t allowed to defend herself. It has been very difficult.”
Not only that, but as Meghan’s relationship with Harry became more serious, there was unnecessary pressure on the two women to become very close right away. These stressors were around when Harry and Meghan were still expected to live in England and partake in the royal duties. Now that they’re gone, Kate and William are reportedly wiped out by the additional duties.
It was evident something was wrong when Markle and Prince Harry appeared at Westminster Abbey for the Commonwealth Day service on March 9th. When Middleton and Prince William entered, the body language became decidedly icy between the couples. Kate, especially, was hit hard by their decision to leave royal life. According to Vanity Fair, a source revealed,
“Possibly [Kate] was tired but she didn’t look overjoyed. To be honest I think Kate has taken it all badly […] [She] thinks what has happened is all very sad.”
Since Harry and Meghan decided to step back from royal life and move to California, Kate and William have had to pick up the slack. According to the Daily Mail, Kate is, quote, “furious about the larger workload.”
Since the pandemic began, Kate and William have been getting inventive, along with the rest of the world, by keeping up with meetings and appearances online. So, during the coronavirus, Kate has still had to maintain a public and appropriate persona. A source told the Daily Mail,
“Of course [Kate’s] smiling and dressing appropriately but she doesn’t want this. She feels exhausted and trapped.”
But royal sources tell the outlet that reports of Kate feeling exhausted are false and that she and William are handling the pandemic as well as anyone. We certainly hope so, but there’s no doubt losing Harry and Meghan must be a blow to them.
