While Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will give an exclusive interview to Oprah Winfrey on March 7, the British royal family seems to be preparing for the worst. An interview that could upset the fragile balance struck between the Fab Four and definitively drive away Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, who are so different.
Decidedly, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are full of surprises. After the announcement of a second pregnancy for the Duchess of Sussex, the couple exiled in the United States is about to give an exclusive interview to American television, facing Oprah Winfrey.
A future interview that is already making the Firm, which does not appreciate unpacking in public, break out in a cold sweat. An interview that Prince William and Kate Middleton, who have been striving for months to modernize and revitalize the monarchy, view with a particularly negative eye. Negative criticism of the Windsor family cannot be tolerated.
The interview could also deal a fatal blow to the precarious balance that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle seemed to have found at a distance. Now thousands of miles apart, the two duchesses were in a cordial… agreement. The contact was not broken, to facilitate the relations between the two brothers William and Harry, and not to break the bond between the little cousins, Archie on one side and George, Charlotte and Louis on the other.
By the end of 2020, the two couples seemed to have warmly reconnected, exchanging conversations about Zoom and Christmas gifts through delivery people. But this very fragile relationship could quickly shatter, and remind the two duchesses how much their styles are contrary.
The American interview with the Sussex, a new subject of discord?
Meghan Markle, too free, too independent, has always contrasted with a Kate Middleton determined to be a model duchess. For months, they were forced to share the poster. In public, the facade smiles could not indefinitely hide private quarrels. Jealousies, low blows, disappointments, the two women never managed to get along.
They did not receive the same education, were not promised the same fate. The unexpected departure of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, in the midst of a health crisis, deeply shocked the Cambridge couple. Since then, the relationship has been like a dotted line.
After the confidences contained in the biography Finding freedom, which had exacerbated a little more the tensions between Princes William and Harry, is the couple of Sussex about to make new shocking revelations and cause scandal? If so, won’t Kate Middleton and Prince William, perhaps a little less forgiving than Queen Elizabeth II, draw a definitive line under Sussex? Tension seems to have already risen a notch: unlike the Queen, the Cambridge couple did not openly congratulate Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, who have just announced the arrival of a new royal baby …
