Apparently, drama was rumbling between the Duchesses long before Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s life-altering decision was made.
Per an Us Weekly insider, the 38-year-old and Kate Middleton have been at odds for the past several months:
“They barely speak.”
Understandably, the Duchess of Cambridge is probably a bit miffed at her in-laws for choosing to announce their intentions for the New Year on the day prior to her birthday, but even more so because the royal fam was reportedly “blindsided” by the proclamation and had no idea it was even happening in the first place.
However, that doesn’t exactly explain why they allegedly haven’t been speaking for months!
Something to do with the Sussexes skipping out on the holidays at Sandringham, perhaps? Or maybe one of their old feuds reignited? Whatever it is, the Suits alum is reportedly feeling “confident” and is “leading the charge” for her family of three from Canada, where she currently is with baby Archie Harrison.
After what we imagine was a grueling meeting on Monday between Queen Elizabeth II, Harry, Prince William, and Prince Charles, Her Majesty released an official statement regarding some of the future logistics:
“Today my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson and his family. My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family. Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working Members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family. Harry and Meghan have made clear that they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives. It has therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the UK. These are complex matters for my family to resolve, and there is some more work to be done, but I have asked for final decisions to be reached in the coming days.”
While there’s definitely still more to be hammered out, it seems like it was a productive conversation toward a copacetic understanding for everyone. Let’s just hope they’re able to find a decision everyone is okay with.
