Queen Can’t Stop Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle’s Rift; Prince Charles To Blame
Queen Elizabeth II won’t be able to stop Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle’s rift.
Prince Charles’ royal biographer Tom Bower appeared on “Good Morning Britain” and spoke about the alleged rift involving the Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex. According to him, Her Majesty won’t be able to stop the row between Prince William and Prince Harry due to her age. He also blamed Prince Charles for firing the person who could have helped stop the issue.
“The problem really is, in the system, that there’s never been in the Palace someone who’s really intelligent, who’s respected. Someone who can step forward and say look Meghan, this is the way you might have done it in Hollywood, but here in London we do it this way,” Bower said.
“The Queen’s a bit too old, and the trouble is the one person who could have done it would have been the Queen’s private secretary, a man called Christopher Geidt,” he continued. “But he was fired by Charles because he was too good and too clever, and interfered at times when it was necessary.”
Susanna Reid interjected that there’s no other member in the royal family who is as independent, determined, articulate and strong as Markle. Bower didn’t agree with it.
“The problem with this argument that you’re putting forward is she’s living in a goldfish bowl,” Bower responded. “You wrote that she deserved privacy, she doesn’t, she’s on public display. When you’re on public display 24/7, there’s a certain way of behaving.”
According to an insider, Middleton and Markle’s row has been on for a year already. It reportedly began when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge invited the Duke and Duchess of Sussex last Christmas. Markle was judged “downright rude” upon arrival. Middleton reportedly talked to her, but she didn’t take it well.
“Kate had a quiet word with Meghan. It escalated rapidly after Meghan complained to Harry that she had been ‘told off,’” the insider said.
“He took her side, while William defended Kate, who was five months pregnant with Louis and certainly didn’t want this sort of confrontation.”
A number of royal experts strongly believe that there’s tension among the fab four. However, the palace denied that Middleton scolded Markle for berating one of her staff.
