Everything opposes them, so that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have been struggling to get along for several years. But on January 9, 2022, when the Duchess of Cambridge celebrated her 40th birthday, her Sussex counterpart took a step towards her, forgetting their past differences. Royal expert Christopher Andersen told US magazine Us Weekly that the Crown rebels called the mother of the family.
“They did a video call,” the expert reported, “they wished her a happy birthday. It was very private.” It must be said that Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry are far from social networks and therefore could not imitate the other members of the royal family of England who relayed public messages to celebrate the anniversary of Kate Middleton. A step towards reconciliation carried out in the most “great discretion.”
Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, a difficult agreement
Proof that the two duchesses are ready to make peace? If their new interactions could suggest it, the path to good understanding has been strewn with pitfalls for Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle. As recently as March 2021, the Suits alum told Oprah Winfrey that Prince William’s wife would have made him cry, denying an ongoing rumor that the tables were turned. The facts would have taken place before the royal wedding of the Sussexes, in May 2018.
Meghan Markle, singled out for harassment by former members of her staff, had also accused Kate Middleton and Camilla Parker-Bowles of having peddled lies against her. Obstacles that the two women would prefer to put aside while the monarchy is weakened first by the death of prince Philip then by the setbacks of prince Andrew.
