Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton Failed To Become Friends: Here’s Why!
Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton at first seemed fated to become the best of friends.
And royal family outsiders initially agreed, pointing to everything the two had in common.
But rather than become BFFs (Best Friends Forever), Meghan and Kate failed to form even a single bond.
Find out what went wrong below!
Here’s Why Outsiders Wanted Kate And Meghan To Become BFFs
From the perspective of royal family observers, many reasons existed for Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle to become best friends forever.
For instance, Kate’s background includes attending the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, where she studied art history.
And prior to tying the knot with Prince William, Kate worked in the retail and marketing world as well as doing charity work.
Meghan also attended a university, choosing Northwestern.
And just like Middleton, Markle both worked and got involved in charity work prior to tying the knot with Prince Harry.
Because of those shared backgrounds, outsiders thought Kate could help Meghan assimilate smoothly into the royal family.
For instance, some assumed Middleton would teach Markle royal protocol and educate her about The Firm, as the royal family is known.
But sadly, those assumptions all proved wrong.
Why Didn’t Meghan Markle And Kate Middleton Bond?
As for the rumors about a feud involving Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, some thought Prince William should shoulder some of the blame.
William allegedly tried to persuade Harry to wait before wedding.
But Harry reportedly felt anger rather than appreciation at his big brother’s recommendations to get to know Meghan more prior to tying the knot.
So did William share his views with Kate and persuade her NOT to bond with Meghan?
We don’t know the answer.
But we do know that royal author Andrew Morton points to an unexpected reason for Kate to avoid a friendship with Meghan, per Good To Know.
Travel back to September 2018, the month and year when Kate Middleton revealed her third pregnancy.
That announcement occurred only a few months prior to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry revealed their engagement.
And that timing proved fatal to a friendship between Kate and Meghan, claims Morton.
Kate Middleton’s Third Pregnancy Fated Feud With Meghan Markle?!
The royal author believes that Kate understandably focused on her third pregnancy.
Challenged with health concerns, Middleton reportedly could spare no energy or interest for Meghan.
As a result, Kate may have appeared cold and stand-offish to Markle.
And that alleged appearance reportedly caused Prince Harry’s now-wife to assume that Middleton disliked her.
Add in reports that Meghan made Kate cry at one point, followed by rumors that it was Middleton who made Markle weep, and the rumored feud got fueled.
In addition, Middleton and Prince William welcomed their third baby, little Prince Louis, into the world mere weeks prior to Markle’s and Harry’s wedding day.
Did all the emotions around her pregnancy cause Kate to avoid bonding with Meghan?
Royal author Andrew Morton says “yes.”
