William will struggle to forgive Meghan Markle for attack on wife, say sources: 'Kate is powerless to fight back'
Sources close to the royals claim that although Kate might have forgiven Meghan for making the bombshell claims, William won't be able to do so quite easily
Amid a subtle reunion between brothers Prince William and Prince Harry at their grandfather's funeral, reports are still around about how William will struggle to forgive Harry's wife Meghan Markle. The sole reason behind this reluctance happens to be the way Meghan allegedly treated William's wife, Kate Middleton, reveal sources.
The 38-year-old Duke of Cambridge is allegedly upset with his sister-in-law after she publicly attacked his wife during her tell-all CBS interview with Oprah Winfrey. In the interview watched by over 17 million people since it was first broadcast in the US on March 7, Meghan, 39, clarified that British media's claims of her making the Duchess of Cambridge cry were false, and the incident had actually happened the other way round. Meghan alleged that it was Kate who had made her cry over disagreements surrounding the flower girl dress that Kate's daughter Charlotte was going to be wearing at Meghan and Harry's royal wedding on May 19, 2018.
Tabloids had reported at the time that Kate was "left sobbing" after the argument between the two duchesses but Meghan claimed in her interview that "the reverse happened". Meghan claimed she was the one who was left crying for a few days ahead of her wedding to Harry, 37, and refused to elaborate on the matter further as it wouldn't be fair on Kate. She however mentioned that the incident "wasn't a confrontation" and Kate had apologized to her since. But sources close to the royals told Daily Mail that although Kate might have forgiven her for making the bombshell claims, William won't be able to do so quite easily.
"First and foremost, William cannot countenance the way Meghan has treated his wife," a royal insider told the outlet. "Kate attempted to try and help Meghan understand the responsibilities of royal life, but her efforts were constantly misinterpreted. But to name Kate so publicly during the Oprah interview as the person who made her cry was beyond the pale. Meghan would have been acutely aware that Kate is powerless to fight back."
The Mirror reports that William also allegedly had reservations about Meghan from the beginning and had suggested his brother to not "rush the relationship." He was also allegedly worried that the former actress was more concerned about her own profile, rather than the family's wider goals as royals. When the Queen had approved of a decision banning Meghan from borrowing royal items like Princess Diana's jewels, William had reportedly supported the move.
The brothers saw each other for the first time at Prince Philip's funeral since the infamous Megxit where Harry and Meghan stepped down from their roles as senior royals and moved across the pond with their son Archie. The April 17 funeral saw William and Harry chatting in private with Kate by their side once the St George's Chapel service was over. Meghan couldn't make it to the funeral after doctor's recommendations as she's expected to give birth to the couple's second child — a girl — this summer.
