Meghan Markle may have played a crucial part in repairing the strained relationship between Prince Harry and Prince William. Royal commentator Emily Andrews noted that the royal feud was actually between Prince Harry and Prince William rather than Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex. She added that the strained relationship revolved around the speed at which Harry and Meghan became involved with one another.
The Royal expert told Yahoo’s The Royal Box: “People had said Kate and Meghan had fallen out, that wasn’t right it was the boys.
“They had fallen out I think over a number of things.
“They had fallen out over money, over status, and I think there is another reason I think is part of the reason they fell out.
“At the beginning, when Harry and Meghan were still dating, it became very obvious to William that Harry and Meghan were serious but the relationship was going very quickly.
“Harry does wear his heart on his sleeve and got very defensive of Meghan and took it completely the wrong way.
“He said to William something along the lines of ‘You are trying to destroy this relationship before it has even started’.
“I was told after the royal wedding that Harry and Meghan didn’t see Kate and William personally for six months and they live on the same site at Kensington Palace.
“Somebody told me it was actually Meghan who had tried to make peace between Harry and William.”
Rumours of an ongoing feud remain as royal experts continue to examine the way in which the two brothers interact now that Harry has become a father of his first son Archie.
The Duchess of Sussex has not formally announced how long she intends to take off work for her maternity leave and the public has seen very little of her since the birth of her first child.
UK law states women are entitled to take up to a year off work, although this depends on their employer and maternity pay package.
American-born Meghan might be more inclined to mirror US women who typically take three months of maternity leave.
But the Duchess is known for her rigorous work ethic and carried out her royal duties late into her pregnancy.
Commentators have suggested Meghan may choose a time period between the two although she is expected to make an appearance at the Trooping the Colour celebrations marking the Queen’s official birthday next week.
