Meghan reached out to Kate for “secret talks”
Media reports suggesting that Meghan and Harry “snubbed” Kate and Prince William by refusing to introduce them to Lilibet a week after birth come amid claims that Meghan reached out to Kate Middleton for “secret talks” following a backlash against Harry.
Harry sparked a backlash from royal fans following recent media appearances in which he attacked members of the Royal Family, including the Queen and Prince Charles.
A source reportedly revealed that Meghan was so worried about the backlash following Harry’s attack against the Royal Family in his Apple TV+ docuseries, The Me You Can’s See, that she reached out to Kate for “secret talks” to heal the rift between them.
Kate did not want to hold “secret talks” with Meghan
However, the source revealed that while Kate wanted peace, she was unwilling to hold “secret talks” out of fear that “anything she said could be used against her.”
But the Duchess of Cambridge reportedly advised Meghan and Harry to stop publicly attacking the Royal Family.
The report that Meghan reached out to Kate came after royal expert Arthur Edwards said the rift between Meghan and Kate may be “too deep and raw to heal.”More: Kate Middleton, Lilibet Diana, Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, Prince William
