Kate Middleton feels 'threatened' by the arrival of 'gorgeous' Meghan Markle on the scene, says royal insider

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is feeling threatened by her sister-in-law and newly inducted member of the British royal family, the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, according to royal experts.

Royal expert Carole Malone appeared on Channel 5 programme 'Kate V Meghan: Princesses at War' and claimed that Kate has been feeling "put out" ever since Meghan married Prince Harry in May last year.

According to Carol, Kate's insecurity stems from the fact that before Meghan came along with her glamorous Hollywood persona, Kate was the one royal member who was stealing the show ever since she started dating Prince William.

She said, "I think Kate would very definitely be threatened by Meghan’s presence and her appearance on the royal scene." She added, "I do think if you had been the top dog, if you had been the young gorgeous girl that everyone had been photographing for the last two or three or four years. You might be a little bit put out when this gorgeous, American, Hollywood star arrives on the scene".

The royal expert went on to say that even though both Meghan and Kate are very different characters and come from very different backgrounds, that doesn't necessarily mean that they cannot get along well together. She described Kate on the show as a "quintessential English rose" due to her history of attending private schools and never being an "outspoken feminist in the way Meghan is."

Meghan, on the other hand, was described as someone who came from a totally different family, and is a "driven girl." Carole further said that due to the Duchess of Sussex's family being somewhat dysfunctional in some ways, with her parents being divorced, Meghan was forced to "strive for everything that she got."

This comes in the wake of rumors of a rift between Kate and Meghan, who is currently pregnant with her first child with Prince Harry. However, on Christmas, both Meghan and Kate put their best foot forward and were spotted smiling and chatting throughout their walk to the church service at Sandringham with the Queen and other royal family members in Norfolk.

It was recently reported that the pregnant Duchess, whose baby is due in Spring, could possibly make a cameo in the next season of NBC's law firm drama 'Suits.' The proceeds from the cameo, which could run into millions, would be donated to charity. The filming, of course, would have to be in the UK.

"We could be done in half a day or less," a senior production source said of the shoot.
