Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Sophie, the Countess of Wessex allegedly “tried their best” to reach out to Meghan Markle when the new royal struggled to adapt. Commentator Rachel Bowie claimed that Kate and Sophie however were “rebuffed” when they tried to support the Duchess of Sussex. Meghan herself admitted to having been struggling with the pressure of her royal life shortly before she and Prince Harry announced plans to step back in 2020.

The Royally Obsesses host said: “I think the context in this was Kate and Sophie had really tried their best, according to a source, to reach out to Meghan, apparently, she was struggling so much in 2019 and they were rebuffed.

“So according to a source… it’s just a rehashing of what we kind of had already heard, I think.”

Both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex claimed in their infamous Oprah Winfrey interview last year they had received no support from the Royal Family when they flagged their issues with Palace aides.

Meghan Markle also reignited speculation about an alleged rift with Kate when she alleged the Duchess of Cambridge had made her cry in the run-up to the wedding.

Reports following the wedding had claimed the newly-minted royal had been the one to make Kate emotional over Princess Charlotte’s flower girl dress.

Prince William is reportedly still furious with Meghan over the remarks she made over Kate on the Oprah Winfrey show.

The Duke’s “head was all over the place” after Meghan accused Kate of making her cry over the infamous dress.

In her chat with Oprah Winfrey, she said: “A few days before the wedding, she was upset about something pertaining – yes, the issue was correct – about flower girl dresses, and it made me cry, and it really hurt my feelings.

“Everyone in the institution knew it wasn’t true.

“I am not sharing that piece about Kate to be in any way disparaging about her. I would hope that she would want that to be corrected.”

Meghan claimed that the incident was a major turning point and she has forgiven Kate referring to her as a “good person.”

She further added: “And she brought me flowers and a note, apologising. And she did what I would do if I knew that I hurt someone, right, to just take accountability for it.”

They said: “Everything with Harry and Meghan has been hugely stressful.

“But if anything, it’s pulled [her and William] closer together.

“She was upset about it because [William] was so upset. Seeing her husband so distraught was tough.”
