Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle’s first meeting is something that still puzzles royal fans.
Surprisingly, when Meghan met Harry’s older brother Prince William, Kate didn’t show up as she had no interest in knowing who Harry was dating.
Royal authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Duran wrote in Find freedom, “Meghan was disappointed that she hadn’t been able to meet Kate… But having gotten along so well with Harry’s brother, she didn’t think much about it. ”
Meghan’s first meeting with Kate came months later, when she got the chance to talk to her for a ‘brief’ moment.
“Kate apparently hadn’t shown much interest” in finding out who Harry’s girlfriend was, the authors wrote.
However, it wasn’t because Kate had something personal against Meghan, “The Duchess is an extremely guarded person. ”
The Duchess of Cambridge travels in a small circle, the authors wrote, and is careful not to let in new people.
Her friends now “are for the most part the same as she had on her wedding day,” the authors wrote.
Meghan gave Kate a little late birthday present that “helped break the ice, as did Meghan’s cooing about Charlotte, then twenty months old,” Scobie and Durand wrote. “The meeting ended with Kate letting Meghan know that she was always welcome to contact her if she needed anything. ”
However, Kate believed that there was nothing in common between her and Meghan, “other than the fact that they lived in Kensington Palace”.
