The first part of the controversial Harry & Meghan documentary series about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has arrived and seems to show that the relationship between the former actress and Kate Middleton is not exactly friendly. Rumor has it that the two duchesses have a strained relationship. Now does the Suits star prove that’s true?
In the first part of the six-part documentary series, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle gave an insight into their first meeting with Prince William and Kate Middleton. The Duchess of Sussex first met the Prince and Princess of Wales at a dinner when she and the Duke of Sussex were still together and from then on she quickly saw what it was like to be a royal.
Royal pundit Sarah Hewson analyzed the show’s first three episodes and claimed the mother-of-two’s relationship with the Duchess of Cornwall wasn’t exactly portrayed kindly from the start.
She told Times Radio via expressthat the American star stressed how formal royal life is after describing her first meeting with the Cornwalls. In the second episode of Harry & Meghan, she revealed that she wore ripped jeans and even bared her feet when they came to dinner.
And as someone who’s always loved hugging, Meghan Markle didn’t know that many Brits are uncomfortable doing it. From then on, she quickly understood that the formality of the royals on the outside was also carried on the inside.
She admitted she expected royal etiquette to be at the door once the job was done. So she found it surprising that it was retained on both sides.
In hindsight, she just thought it was funny because she had learned so much. I’m so glad I didn’t do that back then because I was able to just be authentically myself without so much preparation,” she said.
Rumors of a feud between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton surfaced in 2018. The two are said to have fallen out in the run-up to Meghan’s royal wedding with Prince Harry.
Sources claimed Meghan Markle had Kate Middleton in tears after their argument over the bridesmaids’ tights. In a controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021, the Los Angeles native revealed the argument was a turning point in her royal experience.
She stressed that the incident did not happen and described it as difficult and a starting point for change. Meghan Markle revealed the reverse happened and it was Kate Middleton who upset her, but things were quickly resolved when the latter apologized.
