New details about the ongoing rift between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton have been revealed, shedding light on the tensions between the two duchesses. According to insiders, Meghan felt she had more right to speak than Kate and was resentful of the preferential treatment received by the Middleton family.
Tensions at a Mental Health Event
The reported tensions between Meghan and Kate came to a head at a mental health awareness event in 2018, where the two royal couples were present. Meghan, who saw herself as a self-made woman with her own career, allegedly felt that she had more to contribute and teach the royal family about charity.
Perceived Superior Treatment
Meghan reportedly believed that Kate and her parents received superior treatment and felt sidelined in favor of William and Kate, who are now the Prince and Princess of Wales. The Duchess of Sussex felt that she and Prince Harry were not given the same level of importance and recognition.
Awkward and Frosty Interactions
The report also suggests that Meghan and Kate struggled to get along, with their interactions being described as "awkward" and "frosty." There were tensions over accommodation as well, with William and Kate living in a larger residence at Kensington Palace while Harry and Meghan resided in a more modest cottage.
Controversy Surrounding New Book
The claims come amidst controversy over a new book by Omid Scobie, who is considered to be "Meghan's Cheerleader." The book, titled "Endgame," has sparked a "royal racist" furore, with allegations of racism within the royal family. Both Kate and Prince Charles have been implicated in the claims made in the book.
Harry and Meghan have denied accusing anyone in the royal family of racism, but have suggested that there was "unconscious bias." The book also touches upon the strained relationship between Harry and William, with Scobie labeling William as "heartless."
As the feud between Meghan and Kate continues to make headlines, it remains to be seen how the relationship between the two duchesses will evolve in the future.
