Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton have they ever been friends? In the book Finding Freedom, authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand scrutinize the life of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, from their love affair to the arrival of Meghan Markle in the British royal family. In a television interview with Good Morning America ahead of the release of his book, Omid Scobie talks about the relationship between Meghan and Kate. “These are two women who don’t have much in common. As a new arrival, and knowing that Kate was also new to the family before her, I think there are times when she does. knew what Meghan might be feeling or having, or needed a little more support from Kate, but that wasn’t the case when the moment came. “
Asked about the rumor that Meghan Markle would have burst into tears during her wedding dress fitting session, Omid Scobie assures us that “this is not far from the truth”.
A stalled relationship
Resigned to the idea that their relationship would remain at a standstill, Meghan Markle would not have suffered much. “That did not prevent her from sleeping”, explains the biographer again. “Their relationship did not advance much from the moment she became Harry’s girlfriend”, we can still read. “But they’re not at war either. There were some weird times, like the day their paths crossed at Kensington Palace (note: in 2017, at the start of Meghan and Harry’s relationship) and they were going both shopping on the same street, and Kate went there with her own Range Rover. “
If she had conquered the British people by entering the royal family, to the point of stealing the title from Kate Middleton of queen of fashion, since the Megxit, the situation is reversed. Now, Kate Middleton’s popularity continues to climb … as before the arrival of Meghan Markle.
