The feud between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and the British royal family has sparked widespread curiosity and intrigue. Former BBC royal correspondent Jennie Bond recently gave her perspective on the matter with the British tabloid OK! magazine, claiming that Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, may be unwilling to restore the poor relationship.
According to Jennie Bond, Kate Middleton has been severely touched by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's behaviour since they stepped down from royal duties. She stated that their actions "hurt and insulted" Kate to the point where she has "closed her mind" to the possibility of reconciliation. Bond went on to say that Kate, who comes from a close-knit and happy family, finds it difficult to understand how family members may become estranged.
Kate's initial optimism for reconciliation is illuminated by Bond's statement. Following Prince Philip's burial, Kate was seen conversing with Harry and pushing William to do the same. However, Bond claimed that these attempts were ultimately fruitless. "In fact, William and Harry had a blazing row right after the funeral," she said. There comes a point when you just have to understand that happy families aren't for everyone."
Kate Middleton and Prince William, according to Jennie Bond, make a strong and cohesive team. They have decided to recognize that the schism with Prince Harry is unlikely to be mended anytime soon. According to Bond, their firm position indicates their determination to go on with their lives.
Katie Nicholl, another royal expert, added to the collapse of the bond amongst the so-called "Fab Four." She emphasized how Harry's "snide remarks" about Kate in his biography, "Spare," played a key role in the breakdown of their relationship. This deviation from the royal family's habit of keeping familial affairs private had a significant influence, according to Nicholl.
Nicholl commented, "While Kate and Harry used to be very, very close, there's been a complete breakdown of that relationship." She speculated that Kate's reaction was one of tremendous disappointment, hurt, and betrayal rather than fury. Kate had no opportunity to defend herself against Harry's remarks in his book. “There is a severe lack of trust, and they don’t want the conversation repeated to anyone,” royal expert Kinsey Schofield said on Fox News on September 7.
Nicholl went on to say that Prince William was "very angry" at his younger brother for dragging Kate into the controversy. Kate, who had previously served as a peacekeeper, had a frightening experience when she was drawn into the public feud. This turn of events enraged William, who was determined to keep the family together.
