Kate's 'built up resentment' towards Meghan after Queen's death

NewsKate's 'built up resentment' towards Meghan after Queen's death

Kate, the Princess of Wales has a “built up resentment” towards her sister-in-law Meghan Markle after the Queen’s funeral, reports claim. Both Kate and Meghan were told to stay behind while the rest of the royals travelled to Balmoral on the day the Queen died. Charles said it was “not appropriate” for them to attend, royal biographer Robert Johnson wrote in his new book ‘Our King’. The author claimed Kate “desperately” wanted to be there, leaving her with “resentment” towards Meghan, the Mirror reports.

Members of the Royal Family rushed to Balmoral in Scotland to be at the Queen’s side after it emerged she was bedridden on September 8.

Both Charles and Camilla were present alongside Princess Anne at the time of the Queen’s death.

They were later joined by Prince William, Prince Edward, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, Prince Andrew and lastly Prince Harry.

In his memoir, Prince Harry said he found out about his grandmother’s death from BBC News.

Writing in the book he said: “When the plane started to descend I saw that my phone lit up. It was a message from Meg: ‘Call me when you get this’.”

“I looked at the BBC website. My grandmother had died. My father was King.”

Mr Jobson said both brothers were told not to bring their wives.

He said: “Harry was insisting Meghan travel with him to Scotland as the Queen’s life ebbed away but the King said it was only for the children and grandchildren to be with the Queen.”

He added: “Privately, he wanted to say Meghan was not welcome but he couldn’t say that to Harry so he personally intervened and asked Kate to stay back so that it was fairer on Meghan.

“Kate deliberately stayed away but she desperately wanted to be there with the Queen in her last moments.

“That’s eaten Kate up and has built up resentment towards Meghan.”

The brothers and their wives once dubbed the “Fab Four” were seen together for the first time in more than two years as the royals mourned the Queen’s death.

Meghan and Harry stepped down as Senior Royals in March 2020 before moving to the US.

Since then reports of a rift between the brothers have heightened, particularly after the publication of Harry’s memoir.

In the book Harry gave details of a physical altercation with his brother, claiming William pushed him into a dog bowl.

The Coronation will be the first time Harry has come face-to-face with William since the book.

Harry returned to the UK last month to take part in a court case but the King and William were reportedly “too busy” for a meeting.
