Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been warned Catherine, Princess of Wales, is ready to “fight fire with fire” if they level any more allegation against the Royal Family, with a source saying: “The gloves are off”.
The Sussexes, who were yesterday nominated for a Hollywood Critics Award (HCA) for their Netflix documentary Harry & Meghan, are currently believed to be exploring possibilities for future projects.
However, the insider suggested they would need to think very carefully before revealing more details about the reasons behind their decision to quit the UK for California in 2020, as they did in the six-part documentary series.
The source said Kate was “fiercely protective” of her family and “not afraid to fight fire with fire, having already broken the golden royal rule of ‘Never complain, never explain.'”
Meghan therefore needed to be “extremely careful” in future, they continued, not least as has been reported she follows Harry’s lead and pens a memoir about her experiences.
The insider told Closer magazine: “Kate won’t hesitate to keep sticking up for the royals as well as herself.
“She’s shown an incredible amount of tolerance and bitten her lip but even she can only be pushed so far and this latest revelation is seen as a clear message for Meghan to back off and watch what she says about Kate moving forward.
The insider continued: “The bottom line here is Kate isn’t afraid to take the gloves off and play dirty if she has to.
“It’s about self-preservation and not being walked all over.”
