Since Meghan Markle became a part of British royalty, a series of problems with her father Thomas Markle and her half-sister Samantha appear one after another. However, you shouldn’t think that she is the only one with family problems.

It turns out that the family life of Kate Middleton, who has always tried to avoid controversy, isn’t as perfect as we previously thought. Her great-aunt Alice Tomlinson passed away on April 5, and Prince William's wife didn’t even appear at the funeral. What is the reason? Even though she was the sister of Kate's grandfather, Ronald Goldsmith, she didn’t know her very well.

According to The Daily Express, Alice and Ronald had a very harsh fight in 1978 and have never spoken since.

Although the reason for the argument is unknown, there is no doubt that it must have been very serious to stop communicating. This family break made the Goldsmiths’ children and grandchildren limited from the rest of the family, not even attending the royal wedding in 2011.

According to the same source, a few years ago, a relative revealed that Alice was going to watch Kate and William’s wedding on TV. It has also been said that she thought a lot about her brother and was glad to know that someone of such humble origin would have a queen for a daughter in the not-too-distant future.

The Duchess of Cambridge has never spoken about it. She didn’t even publish an obituary on the official social networks of Kensington Palace. Alice Tomlinson was 107 years old and was Kate's oldest living relative. Regardless of what had happened between the families, we hope you found your peace, Alice.
