Meghan Markle reportedly stole the spotlight from Kate Middleton at a Heads Together gig

May 6, 2022

Perhaps people still remember the days when Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Prince William and Kate Middleton worked together as the royal Fab Four. But it’s been years since that group broke up, and now the Duchess of Sussex is reportedly stealing the soundbite from the heir-to-be during her performance for Heads Together.

Meghan Markle joined Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince Harry on stage as the fourth patron of the Royal Foundation in 2018. However, the former actress has been accused of stealing the spotlight from the Duchess of Cambridge when she spoke about women’s empowerment rather than their mental health.

Royal commentator Christine Ross said on Us Weekly’s show Royall Us (via express) that the Duke of Cambridge’s wife spearheaded the project. It was the result of her experiences and hard work, and it was very personal to her, knowing her brother James was suffering from clinical depression.

But when the former Suits star took the scene, she managed to change the story as she began to speak. “I don’t want to say I stole in an aggressive sense, but I stole the tone,” Ross said.

Headlines then turned to Meghan Markle and how he spoke out about female empowerment when it was supposed to be about Kate Middleton’s mental health project. This scene only showed the power struggle and the complicated dynamic between the four.

Since then, they have never been seen together in public again. Royal biographer Tina Brown added that Prince Harry’s wife took up most of the airtime during the Fab Four’s interview.

So, despite all the problems, is there still a chance to mend their relationship? Royal expert and biographer Ingrid Seward thinks the four’s relationships have endured a lot to ever fully recover.

If the four are ever to be together, it could take a terrible tragedy to bring them back together as a group. She told the Mirror’s royal podcast Save the Queen, via Marie Clairein 2020, that trying to mend family ties takes more effort than leaving it as it was.

However, she doubted that they could ever go back to the way they used to be. I really don’t think so, she added.

Ingrid believes their relationship is already broken, but if anything happens to Kate Middleton or Meghan Markle, it could bring the two princes back together. But as long as the wives and families of Prince Harry and Prince William are there, their relationship cannot be restored.
