Reconciliation Between Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle Won’t Happen Unless This Happens
British Royal family news reveals since the early days of Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle’s relationship, the tabloids and royal fans have speculated about the degree of friendship existing between the royal ladies. Kate and Meghan, along with their husbands William and Harry, were dubbed the “fab four”.
Two years after Harry and Meghan’s 2018 wedding, the couple decided to step down as senior working members of the royal family. Before the couple’s tumultuous exit from royal life in 2020, rumors of a rift between the Cambridges and the Sussexes had been in circulation.
Omid Scobie Claims that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle Follow Their “Husbands’ Lead”
Royal expert Stewart Pearce recently claimed that the Cambridges and the Sussexes are working on their relationship via video calls and Zoom conversations. But Omid Scobie, a co-author of the biography Finding Freedom, is of the mind that the news of their reunion is all just “wishful thinking”.
“I think it’s wishful thinking when we see people say that Meghan and Kate are going to work on a Netflix project together or they’re talking on the phone,” Scobie recently told ET, in the wake of the release of Finding Freedom’s paperback version, which featured a brand new epilogue from one of Meghan’s close friends who blamed the monarchy for ignoring Harry and Meghan’s mental health calls.
Scobie went on to explain that Kate and Meghan tend to follow their husband’s lead and that there would be little hope of the pair fixing their relationship as long as the relationship between their husbands remains strained. He also added that the Duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex are unlikely to come together in order to find a way to fix the strained relationship between their husbands.
“I even read a story about how they’re Zooming whilst making cakes or something, quite recently.”
“Unfortunately, they follow the lead set by the brothers. The brothers aren’t talking, there really isn’t much communication between either side altogether,” he added.
“Although there was never really a feud between the duchesses, there was some distance. They were never able to get as close as possible.”
Royal Writer Insists that the Cambridge and Sussex Rift was Inevitable
Omid Scobie further highlighted the reasons why the “fab four” disbanding was always inevitable in his interview with the media outlet.
“The Fab Four was always destined to fail because neither of them were equals,” he explained. “These weren’t four family members all on the same level, carrying out work together. It was kind of a Diana Ross and the Supremes situation.”
“They wanted to do just as much as the Cambridges. They wanted to be just as front and center as William and Kate were and, of course, public appetite was there for it, but the institution is very quick to remind you that you are in that position,” he said.
“Harry is number six in line to the throne and must always remember that as he carries out that work. It means that he can never overshadow his brother.”
