November 25, 2019 12:58

Many royals don’t see eye to eye but the divide between Prince William and his brother Harry has received the most scrutiny. But while their brotherly competition is only natural, their spouses, Kate Middleton, and Meghan Markle have been placed in precarious positions as people often wonder why they don’t get along.

Earlier in July, the relationship between the women came under scrutiny once again when they attended the Festival of Remembrance Service at Royal Albert Hall with their spouses.

Meghan Markle’s latest news, at least on the royal front, shows that she has trouble warming up to her sister in law, Kate Middleton.

Meghan Markle vs Kate Middleton’s division was a long time coming

While many royal fans would love Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle to get along, the truth is that they come from totally different worlds. According to a source that spoke to PEOPLE, it’s tough for Kate and Meghan to be friends since they come from different worlds.

Meghan is very aware that Kate will be Queen; their roles are very clear… Meghan doesn’t fit the mold, while Kate was groomed for this.

Before marrying into the royal family, the beloved Duchess of Sussex was an actress in her own right and aspects such as duties were not in any of her books compared to the Duchess of Cambridge.

Considering this and the fact that they are often pitted against each other, it becomes almost impossible for them to have an ideal relationship as sisters-in-law.

Furthermore, as wives, they must focus on their families, which means they are always expected to honor boundaries even when they might not want to.

Kate Middleton has helped Meghan Markle with advice

A bright side of their relationship is that while they are not best buddies, at least not yet, Kate and Meghan share correspondence and according to sources, she gives her advice too.

Between the two, Kate Middleton has been a royal for longer and before Meghan, she was the subject of scrutiny too. Express UK quoted royal expert Phil Dampier who said that Kate often reaches out to Meghan in attempts to make things better for her.

I’m told she has reached out to Meghan and spoken to her on the phone… Kate feels sorry for her and knows that Meghan is struggling.

The kind gesture proves that things are not that bad between Kate and Meghan and while their statuses keep them apart, there is still room for change. Do you want to see these two becoming the closest friends in the future? Most of us are looking forward to it.
