Meghan Markle latest – Kate Middleton 'feared for Harry over Duchess' bizarre relationship with dad Thomas and siblings'

KATE Middleton was worried for Prince Harry when she learned about Meghan Markle's bizarre relationship with her family, it has been claimed.

Kate Middleton, 39, is understood to have expressed concerns to Harry after he brought Meghan to stay with them at their Norfolk home Amner Hall for Christmas in 2017 shortly after they announced their engagement.

Speaking to The Sun, Ingrid Seward, editor in chief of Majesty Magazine, claimed: 'She could not understand why Harry had never met his future father-in-law, nor why Meghan, who Harry assured was The One and "ticked all his boxes", appeared embarrassed about her family and unwilling to speak about them apart from her mother. "

    MEGHAN KNEW KATE WAS 'POWERLESS TO FIGHT BACK'

    Meghan Markle knew Kate Middleton was "powerless to fight back" after claiming the Duchess of Cambridge made her cry, it has been reported.

    A royal source said the claims made by the Duchess of Sussex during her bombshell Oprah interview have worsened the divide between the Sussexes and the Cambridges – particularly between Meghan and Prince William.

    A senior royal insider told the MailOnline: "Much has been made of the troubles between Kate and Meghan, and William and Harry – but perhaps the biggest strains now exist between William and Meghan.

    "First and foremost, William cannot countenance the way Meghan has treated his wife. He feels Kate tried at the beginning, but it was never enough.

    "Kate attempted to try and help Meghan understand the responsibilities of royal life, but her efforts were constantly misinterpreted."

    MEG & HARRY ARE ‘DESPERATE TO STAY RELEVANT’

    Russell Myers told talkRADIO: “For a couple that left for privacy, there is an extraordinary amount of stories surrounding their lives that do get leaked out. These find their way into the British press.

    “We understand that they’ve got a few friendly journalists that they deal with.They’ve cut out some of the press that they said they weren’t happy with their coverage.

    “It’s a very Hollywood way of doing things and that has been an issue for both Harry and Meghan. Getting the friendly press to just write about how amazing you are all the time doesn’t really work.

    “It’s a strange one because while they say they moved away for privacy, didn’t want to have anything to do with the British press. People are still talking about and my guess is they still want to be talked about because whilst signing big money deals, they’ve got to stay relevant.”

    WILLS WONDERED ABOUT MEGHAN’S ‘MOTIVATIONS’

    William allegedly told Harry in 2018 to take his relationship with the former actress slowly after he was first introduced to her at Kensington Palace.

    When Meghan married into the family, the Duke of Cambridge is said to have begun to question her intentions with Harry.

    “William soon began to wonder about some of Meghan’s traits and motivations,” the senior source told the Mail Online.

    “He was worried that at times she seemed to be more concerned about her personal progression or profile over the wider goals and aims of the Royal Family.

    “But he largely kept any reservations to himself as he desperately wanted her to be happy and appreciated the huge adjustment of entering the Royal Family.”

    The Sussexes left their royal roles in March of last year to start a new life in LA with their son Archie.

    Now a source has claimed that behind the scenes has been “a lot simpler” without her and Harry.

    They told The Daily Mirror: “One of the main issues with Harry and Meghan, when they were part of the working family, was their inability to understand how things worked.

    “It’s been a lot simpler without them kicking off over why they couldn’t just do what they wanted. Things are a lot calmer.”

    The source said: "Michelle has been giving Meghan and Harry guidance on a variety of issues from public and political perception, building charities and working within the Netflix family."

    While the arrangement is "informal" and on a "friendship" basis, the source says the Sussexes have spoken to the Obamas several times over the past few months.

    The Duchess was earlier rumoured to be considering a White House bid, as she possesses "all the qualities" required of a strong candidate – but would "struggle" with the scrutiny of politics, according to her biographer Tom Bower.

    EUGENIE ‘FELT HURT’ BY OPRAH INTERVIEW

    The Daily Telegraph’s Camilla Tominey has alleged that Eugenie and Beatrice have felt hurt at the actions of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in the past. 

    She claims the Sussexes took a swipe at the sisters on their personal website, Sussexroyal.com, last year, when they noted there was a precedent for “other titled members of the Royal Family to seek employment outside of the institution”.

    Both York sisters are employed, with Beatrice working for a tech start-up while Eugenie is a director at an art gallery, however, neither have lost use of the HRH status, unlike Harry and Meghan.
