It has only been a few weeks since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their stunning exit from the royal family, and Kate Middleton is reportedly having a difficult time adjusting to the changes.
Kate had a busy schedule to begin with and has been forced to take on more responsibilities now that Harry and Meghan are out of the mix. While Megxit has clearly had a direct impact on Kate’s life, what did she tell her children about Harry and Meghan’s decision?
Meghan and Harry’s decision to step down as senior members of the royal family has rocked the monarchy to its core. While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex look to live a quieter life with their son, Archie Harrison, in Canada, the rest of the royals are going to have to pick up the slack.
Kate has become accustomed to a busy schedule over the years, but sources claim that she is having a tough time adjusting to her new responsibilities.
According to She Knows, Kate Middleton has been suffering from anxiety in the wake of Megxit. The added stress has also made it difficult for the Duchess of Cambridge to sleep, which has only added more issues to her plate.
“Kate’s in a panic and has been having bouts of anxiety,” the source stated. “She barely has time to rest, and when she does try to sleep, her mind is constantly racing.”
The insider added that Kate is now working over 18 hours a day. Her busy work schedule has also added stress to her children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. With Kate expected to keep up the work, she is reportedly worried about finding time for her kids.
To add even more anxiety to her life, Kate also misses Harry. The two shared a close bond and the idea that she will not see him for most of the year is contributing to her sleepless nights.
When she was first dating Prince William, Kate and Harry grew close. Harry liked Kate so much that he even gave William their mother, Princess Diana’s, old engagement ring when he proposed.
But Kate’s relationship with Harry changed once he started dating Meghan. There were a lot of rumors about a growing feud between the couples, and a source now says that Kate is worried that she will never be close to Harry again.
