Why Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton’s Relationship Is Unrepairable

Why Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton’s Relationship Is Unrepairable

The conflict between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton has been going on for years.

When the world first learned of Kate’s cancer diagnosis earlier this year, there was hope that she and Meghan would reconcile and focus on family unity.

But now it looks like reconciliation is still unlikely.

Reports that Meghan had reached out to Kate over her health battle have been confirmed.

But those close to the royal family say the gesture does not bring them any closer to burying the hatchet.

“Meghan Markle is supposedly remorseful. Well, you would hope so,” royal expert Hilary Fordwich told Fox News this week.

“He just goes around saying he doesn’t want any bad blood. Of course he wants and needs some kind of reconciliation,” Fordwich continued.

“(But) Meghan Markle still has a long way to go before Kate sees any benefits to the royal family or society as a result of reconciliation.”

Needless to say, Fordwich is not optimistic about Meghan’s chances of gaining Kate’s favour.

The duel of the duchesses continues

An anonymous source repeated Fordwich’s comments in a recent interview with In touch.

“She wants to make peace with Kate. She doesn’t want any bad blood between them,” the source said.

“Meghan’s friends say she regrets how things turned out and that she never meant any harm to Kate. Although she must realise she could have done things differently.

“Meghan went out of her way to care for Kate during this difficult time.”

There are different versions of events as to when exactly the hostility between Kate and Meghan began.

However, insiders agree that the climax came in the weeks before Meghan and Prince Harry’s wedding.

It was then that Kate and Meghan argued about the details of the preparations, including, as is widely known, the type of dresses the flower girls were to wear.

Is there any hope for peace?

“Even before the famous, tearful row over the flower girls’ dresses at Harry and Meghan’s wedding, relations between the two princesses were frosty,” King Charles’ biographer Christopher Andersen told Fox News.

Andersen said Meghan’s interview with Oprah and Harry’s memoir were the final straw for Kate.

“After Megxit, Kate did everything she could to reunite her brothers, Prince Harry and Prince William,” he said.

“But that proved impossible when the Sussexes let their royal imagination run wild during the Oprah interview and in Harry’s scintillating memoirs Reserve.”

There is no indication that the war between Meghan and Kate will end.

However, we are sure Meg still wishes Kate all the best in her battle with cancer.
