Harry and Meghan officially confirmed their wish to leave the Royal Foundation on June 20. Was the rift between the two royal couples the reason for such a decision?

Meghan and Kate, apparently, didn’t see eye to eye

According to US Weekly, Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton had some creative differences ahead of the split. Even though the Palace tried to portray the news as “a natural progression,” the two royal women had opposite views on how to run the Royal Foundation.

Meghan, apparently, wished to be more involved in the process and was full of creative ideas, while Kate preferred to be “more hands off.”

Nonetheless, it was noted that there were no disagreements between the Duchesses. Rather, Meghan was trying to find a way to be more active in her role.

Before marrying the British Prince, the former actress wished to open her own charity with the main focus on girls and women's issues.

Her idea could be revived again as the Sussexes are no longer working together with the Camridges.
