Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton's feud is risking the future of British monarchy, feel royal experts
Meghan and Prince Harry, who are currently expecting their first child in spring next year, are expected to attend Christmas celebrations at Sandringham with Prince William and Kate
A royal commentator has explained how the rumors of a royal feud between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton can prove to be utterly disastrous for the British monarchy in the long run.
According to Phil Dampier, who has written several books on the monarchy, if the rift between Meghan and Kate is not resolved soon, it could be seriously “damaging” for the famous family.
“I think it would be dreadful and very, very damaging for the monarchy if there was some major rift that they weren’t able to heal and which was to carry on for years to come. I think that would be absolutely devastating for the Royal Family and devastating for the future of the monarchy,” he said.
The royal commentator, alluding to the rumored rift between the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex, said: “I think there’s something in the stories. Possibly they had a bit of a tiff before the wedding. I don’t think one ought to blow it up too much out of proportion because obviously any bride before their wedding is nervous and all families have small tiffs.”
Meghan and Prince Harry, who are currently expecting their first child in spring next year, are expected to attend Christmas celebrations at Sandringham with Prince William and Kate, as well as the Queen, it was revealed recently.
And according to Phil, this would be the best time for the couples to sort out their issues. He said: “This Christmas, if they are locked in the same house for a few days, would be the ideal time to bury the hatchet.”
News of the devastation to the monarchy because of the Royals' feud comes after there were reports suggesting growing tension between the Cambridges and Sussexes, but Kensington Palace has denied any rumors of a feud. Real or not, effects of the royal feud have already started to show a little, for the internet has clearly divided itself into Team Meghan and Team Kate.
Some of them favored Meghan by stating that she was right to speak her mind even if it meant taking a stand against royal aides. "This just shows that Meghan is a hard-working, conscientious, and professional woman committed to her work. And this also shows that those royal aides are super lazy, whiny, and inept. Anyone complaining about someone's work ethic is a loser. I'm #TeamMeghan," wrote one.
But team Kate was not far behind as people were quick to point out that Kate knew how to present herself with grace and confidence. "I’m #teamkate She’s eloquent, well-mannered, beautiful and British. Meghan Markle will bring terrible division to the Royal family. She’s a troublemaking, ruthless social climber who drops those close to her the minute she decides she doesn’t need them," wrote a supporter of the Duchess of Cambridge.
