Kate Middleton was reportedly furious after the palace mistakenly called her Archie’s mom.
Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle share the same taste in fashion and are about the same age. When Markle joined the royal family both earned their respective followers and critics.
According to reports, Middleton tried to help her sister-in-law. However, the former Suits star was difficult.
Kate Middleton livid for being called Archie’s mom
Kate Middleton and Prince William are already parents to three kids. When the palace announced the birth of Archie, it mistakenly listed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as the newborn’s parents.
A source told New Idea that Middleton was livid about the mistake. At the time, there were already rumors that the Cambridges and Sussexes had a falling-out.
“Kate is absolutely furious,” a palace insider said.
“She feels humiliated. As if things weren’t bad enough between Kate and Meghan, now she’s had to go through the drama of being called Archie’s mum and going through the mess of having it all fixed.”
The mistake allegedly sparked a heated argument between the fab four with Middleton in tears. Apparently, the Duchess of Cambridge was very unhappy with the PR blunder. So, she took her frustrations to Prince Harry and Markle.
Markle allegedly made Middleton cry
Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle’s rocky relationship started during Princess Charlotte’s dress fitting for the latter’s wedding. Prince Harry’s wife allegedly made Middleton cry.
According to royal expert Leslie Carroll, Middleton was still hormonal and sensitive. It should be noted that she just delivered Prince Louis at the time.
Meanwhile, Markle was overwhelmed with all the things that had to be done for her wedding. So, it was possible that she snapped because she had so much on her plate.
Unfortunately, the same incident happened again on Archie’s baptism.
According to insiders, Markle warned Middleton to not steal her thunder. Meghan Markle’s warning surprised Middleton.
Middleton understood that Markle was emotional especially during the rehearsal. However, her words were still not easy to accept for Prince William’s wife.
“She tried to keep it in but ended up leaving the rehearsal in tears and Prince William had to comfort her. It was awful,” the source said.
Prince William and Prince Harry’s relationship
Aside from Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle’s alleged feud, their husbands were also not on good terms. Prince Harry distanced himself from the Cambridges after he married Markle.
In March, Prince William noticeably snubbed his younger brother and Markle during the Commonwealth Day service. According to royal expert Phil Dampier, there was a “definite rift and iciness.”
He added that the royal princes’ relationship got worse. Since they are living apart, it might take time for them to mend fences.
