Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton would never have been friends outside of the formality


Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, is no longer a senior member of the royal family, following her dramatic exit from the royal inner circle earlier this spring. Meghan – with her husband Prince Harry and their toddler son Archie Harrison – lives in California as they plan their next steps.

Now that Meghan and Prince Harry have moved away from their old lives, sources are coming out, revealing details about what really happened during Meghan’s time in the fold. According to a new book, Meghan’s relationship with Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was very different from what has been reported in the media.

The royal couples have been nicknamed “the Fab Four”

When Meghan first met Prince Harry’s family, reports were positive. There were claims that Meghan got along very well with Kate and that she had formed a special bond with Queen Elizabeth, Prince Harry’s grandmother.

As the days passed, the royal family began to incorporate Meghan into more of their day-to-day activities, proving not only that Prince Harry was serious about his future with the actress, but that Meghan was determined to make her own mark at the within the family.

After Meghan and Prince Harry tied the knot in May 2018, they began working on special projects with Prince William and Kate, including their charity, The Royal Foundation. The media even dubbed the two couples “the Fab Four”.

Unfortunately, the partnership was short-lived, and not only after their union, the ‘Fab Four’ disbanded as Prince Harry and Meghan took to the skies to work on various charities.

The rumor of the rivalry between Meghan and Kate

Around the time the couples stopped working together, rumors started that Meghan and Kate were embroiled in a feud. Various tabloid reports have claimed that Kate’s more subdued and calm personality clashes with Meghan’s more stubborn attitude.

Other reports said Meghan and Kate had done what they could to avoid being in the same room, and even that their feud caused friction between other members of the royal family.

Over the months, it became clear that there had never been a real feud between Meghan and Kate. Not only have the two women been spotted attending events together, new sources have said the real issue lies between Prince William and Prince Harry.

It seemed the media were bent on portraying Meghan and Kate as bitter rivals no matter what.

These days Prince Harry and Meghan are focused on their own work and haven’t seen the rest of the Royal Family in months except for video calls. Still, a new book claims the distance between couples isn’t due to real negativity, but simply a lack of real closeness between Kate and Meghan. The source says that far from being friendly, even bitter rivals, the two women have never gone beyond “the distant politeness of their first meeting.”

In light of this new information, it looks like the two women attending events together could have been their way of trying to move their relationship forward. Maybe they tried to cultivate a real friendship, but couldn’t find enough commonalities to make a real connection. After all, their life experiences couldn’t have been more different, and forging friendships rarely works. Still, there is no indication that Meghan and Kate have bad will towards each other – more than likely, they are handling the situation like mature adults.
