Since the birth of Lilibet Diana, Kate Middleton is reaching out to Meghan Markle. This birth will probably allow the duchesses to reconcile in the near future.
The arrival of a baby sweetens the deal. Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have never been particularly close, even less with the departure of the Sussexes in California. But since the birth of Lilibet Diana on June 4, things seem to be slowly returning to normal. A source told Us Weekly, “Kate is reaching out to Meghan a lot more since Lilibet was born. She’s sending notes and gifts and trying to build a relationship.” Small gestures that make a big difference.
The duchesses hadn’t been in touch for a while, according to another insider. The cause? The breakup between Prince Harry and Prince William. So since the arrival of this happy event in the royal family, “the company has asked staff members to reach out more to Harry and Meghan to get them to soften up a bit.” Kate Middleton has been given this task and knows how to do it. For example, at a royal engagement with first lady Dr. Jill Biden, Prince William‘s wife explained that she was “looking forward to meeting” the new Royal. A discreet nod to the main interested party.
Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle: tense relations
The relationship between the princes’ wives was apparently strained at the time the Sussexes announced their intention to retire from the Royal family in January 2020. After moving to California, the parents of Archie and Lilibet explained their side of the story to Oprah Winfrey.
During the interview, the former actress claimed that her complicated relationship with the Duchess of Cambridge was made worse by the British press. “If you love me, you don’t have to hate her. And if you love her, you don’t have to hate me,” she explained at the time. Although there was tension between the foursome, more efforts were made to resolve it.
