Prince Harry’s strong bond with Kate may have bothered Meghan Markle, according to a royal expert.
Meghan Markle “must have been jealous” of Princess Kate because of the strong bond she had with Prince Harry, a royal expert has claimed.
Relations between the Sussexes and the rest of the Royal Family remain tense as Harry and Meghan continue to live their own life in California.
The couple’s Netflix series, Harry’s memoir ‘Spare’, and their various interviews have seen them heavily criticise the Royal Family in recent years.
Things started to look difficult for the royal couple when reports emerged that Meghan and Kate had come to blows prior to the Sussexes’ wedding in 2018.
Ingrid Seward, a royal expert and editor of Majesty Magazine. told the Telegraph on Sunday that Meghan “must have been jealous” due to Harry and Kate’s strong bond.
Seward says Meghan was ‘jealous’ of Kate
She said: “Unfortunately, it points to Meghan, doesn’t it? Maybe Harry was a little in love with Kate.
“I don’t mean physically but mentally. Remember when it was just the three of them? He always longed for a sister, he told Diana that. Psychologically I think he just adored her and he was always there, at Kensington Palace, in their fridge, you know, ‘What’s for supper?’.
“I think that Meghan must have been incredibly envious and then jealous of Kate. I heard Meghan actually thought she was going to be a princess and live in Windsor Castle. Instead, there’s William and Kate with this beautiful house, while they are stuck in Nottingham Cottage which Harry used to call ‘my hovel’.”
Harry traveled back to the UK this week to see King Charles after his shock cancer diagnosis.
The meeting was seen as a chance of the Duke to build bridges with his father. Meghan stayed in California with children Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.

Tension remains palpable between Harry and William, however, as the brothers reportedly did not meet while Harry was in the UK.
Harry alleged in his memoir ‘Spare’ that William physically assaulted him during an argument in 2019.
He has also claimed that William’s press team was planting negative stories about Meghan in the press.
Harry added: “The saddest part of it, was this wedge created between myself and my brother so that he’s now on the institution side.”
