After Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s rather brutal exit from the royal lifestyle, Kate Middleton had to shoulder the burden of all of Meghan’s former royal functions, leaving her “exhausted” and “trapped”, E! News revealed.
According to a close friend of Middleton, “Kate is furious at the increased workload. Sure, she smiles and dresses appropriately, but she doesn’t want that. “
“She feels exhausted and trapped. She works as hard as a top CEO, who has to be relocated all the time, without the benefits of borders and many vacations. “
Although the coronavirus has stopped all of its normal daily activities, the source revealed that these feelings have been manifesting for some time now.
In Markle’s absence, Middleton has made dozens of engagements in the past month.
“Kate understands that the only creed of the royal family is duty, duty, duty. Whereas with the Sussexes, there is constant uncertainty, “said the source.
The tension between Middleton and Markle dates back to her wedding day, when Kate wanted the bridesmaids to follow established protocol, but Markle did not.
“There was an incident during the rehearsal of the marriage. It was a hot day and apparently there was an argument over whether the bridesmaids should wear tights or not. Kate, following the protocol, felt they should. Meghan didn’t want it. “
