Surely everyone remembers the moment when it became known in 2016 that Prince Harry finally settled down. It was then that his new beloved Meghan Markle moved to the Islands, and fans of the monarchy dreamed of the partner of their red-haired favorite becoming friends with the rest of the family. William and Harry had always had a very close bond. Together with the chosen ones of the heart, according to their subjects, they could form a well-coordinated team. Couples were hailed as “The Fab Four” [wspaniała czwórka]. Unfortunately, the relationship between the son of Prince Charles and Diana Spencer with Meghan Markle from the very beginning aroused extreme emotions not only among the world’s media, but also among the Windsors themselves, who were skeptical about this relationship from the very beginning. Markle’s disadvantage was not only the fact that she was a divorcee, but also a series actress and blogger who never concealed her support for the Democrats. “You can date actresses, but not marry” – reportedly told Harry his grandfather, Prince Philip. William was of a similar opinion. It should be remembered that the heir to the throne dated Kate Middleton for a decade before deciding to gift her her famous mother’s ring. So he was worried by his younger brother’s rush to “Żeniaczka”. He sensed that it was a sign of trouble.
William was worried that his brother was getting involved in the relationship too quickly – when Harry started talking about an imminent marriage, he didn’t hesitate to tell him. »It all happens quite fast«
William said doubtfully to his brother. He couldn’t understand that Harry was considering marrying this still little known and not fully proven person just two years after they met. It seemed to be against his own rules.
William checked over the years whether Kate was fit for the role of the queen of the future. He did this, of course, for the sake of the monarchy. So Harry had a right to wonder if William really meant his personal happiness, or whether again – and as always – he was only thinking about the good of the Company.

Harry disobeyed, and the family had no choice but to accept the prince’s choice. Buckingham Palace went above and beyond to maintain the appearance of a perfect relationship between Meghan and the monarchy. Kate Middleton and her new sister-in-law made several official appearances together, and the joint photos were a sensation on the web each time. Broad smiles, friendly gestures – in retrospect it seems that it was only a game of appearances. The Duchesses have never been friends. Moreover, there was an unwritten conflict between them almost from the very beginning. Rivalry? It seems that Kate has had a certain situation at the royal court for years and Meghan would not be a threat to her. The work and dedication of the Duchess of Cambridge have resulted in the respect of the Queen and the public who adores her. Meanwhile, Meghan had to prove herself to win the favor of the people and to match William’s wife. Her behavior, however, had the opposite effect.
Just before the wedding of Meghan and Harry, the “Daily Mail” news of a brawl between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton. British journalists, citing “sources close to the Palace”, reported that a sharp exchange of views took place during the fitting of the bride’s dress and girls sleeping flowers. Meghan allegedly was against girls’ tights. Kate wanted everything to be as per protocol. It was said then that the Duchess of Cambridge left this meeting in tears. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Markle denied that … was the opposite.
It was a hard week before the wedding (…). A few days before the ceremony, she was nervous. It was about the dresses of girls who carried flowers. I cried, I was hurt. And then I thought, in the context of everything that was happening around the upcoming wedding, that there was no point in not doing the way they all wanted to. She apologized, sent me flowers and a note of apology.
When Winfrey asked why no one in the royal family had commented on the matter, Meghan only replied, “That’s a good question.” She also added that there was no confrontation between her and her sister-in-law. In saying this, the Duchess emphasized that she “does not want to discredit Kate in any way” and will not go into details of what William’s wife did. Meghan admitted, however, that the situation was a “turning point” in the deterioration of Sussex’s contacts with the rest of the family.
In fact, since the news of the first quarrel between William and Harry’s wives appeared, the media continued to follow the development of their relationship. These, however, went in the worse and worse direction. When, in the face of an obvious image crisis, the Duchess of Sussex demanded to hire a staff of PR specialists, according to the reports of The Times, Kate’s decision did not appeal to Kate. William’s wife was to blame Markle for unnecessarily spending family funds on additional advertising activities. The behavior of a’la “Hollywood star” disturbed Middleton, who reportedly did not fail to communicate it to her. Effect? Meghan and Harry moved out of Kensington Palace and settled in the renovated Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, at the taxpayer’s expense. We all know the rest of the story – a megxit happened, which resulted in the Sussex moving to the United States. Both Kate and Meghan and William and Harry stopped having any contact with each other. Then, a controversial interview of “fugitives” with Oprah Winfrey was broadcast, which hit the monarchy.
It was supposed to be emotional, shocking at times and completely honest, without taboos. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, despite the will to live in complete privacy, in March decided to give an interview on the river, which was broadcast on the American CBS channel. For the Sussexs, this was going to be the only conversation of this kind. At least that’s what the couple assured at the time. It was to be expected, therefore, that the conversation path would be directed towards the Windsor. Objective? Hitting the closest grandson of Her Majesty. It just got worse. Instead of the expected sympathy, Meghan and Harry’s popularity bars began to drop drastically. A storm broke out in the media, and just a day after the avalanche of accusations on the air, the prince tried to translate the words of his wife, who spoke of racism and a lack of understanding on the part of British family members.
It would seem that after the words spoken by the Sussexs, it would not be possible to save them from the monarchy, or rather the scraps that remained of it. It turns out, however, that anything is possible. As reported by the American media, the birth of little Lilibet Diana brought Meghan and Kate closer together. Moreover, after several years of misunderstandings, the sisters-in-law started talking to each other. There was also an idea that the foreign media called the “olive branch”, which Harry and his wife had to pull out.
According to US Weekly, the wives of William and Harry began talks on a joint project for Netflix, with which the Sussexs signed a multi-million contract last year. Thus, they have committed themselves to providing the platform with original content, including documentaries, films, series and programs for children. The partnership, called Archewell Productions, was one of the first to which the marriage agreed after resigning from high-ranking members of the royal family.
In addition to the documentary series “Heart of Invictus”, which will be executive produced by the Duke of Sussex, and the fairy tale “Pearl” [perła]that his wife will produce, the couple are planning to make a film about … the charity work of the Duchess of Cambridge. Apparently, Meghan and Kate are in the process of talking about the project, and their relationship can be considered more than correct. US Weekly provides:
They actually get on very well with each other. They have been in contact with each other recently.
She also adds that “the idea flatters Kate a lot, and the emotions between her and Meghan are nothing but positive.”
Let us remind you that in June this year. the Duchess of Cambridge was asked about little Lilibet Diana. It took place during a meeting with Jill Biden, who came to the UK with her husband for the G7 summit. Kate did not shy away from speaking about the little niece. With a smile on her lips, she replied:
I wish her all the best. I can’t wait to meet her.
Do you think this is the end of the argument between the younger generation of Windsor? We have the impression that the soap opera with the royal family in the lead role will still surprise us.
