Royal commentator Katie Nicholl told Channel 5 that there was noticeable tension between the Cambridges and the Sussexes during the 2020 Commonwealth Service. She added that the Duchess of Cambridge was obviously ignoring Meghan Markle and Prince Harry during the royal engagement.
Ms Nicholl said: “I was sitting behind William and Kate and Meghan and Harry, a few rows back at that service.
“There was absolutely tension between the two couples.
“While Kate turned around to speak to Edward and Sophie Wessex, she just did not acknowledge Meghan and Harry at all.
“That was very obvious.”
Kate Middleton and Prince William have been married since 2011
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s final royal engagement was the Commonwealth Service
Channel 5 stated that Finding Freedom notes that after flying back to Canada following the Commonwealth Service, Meghan Marke “at that point couldn’t imagine wanting to set foot back into anything royal again”.
In January, Katie Nicholl told True Royalty TV that Prince William will reconcile with Prince Harry for the “greater good” of the monarchy.
Ms Nicholl stated that the brother’s relationship had come under strain in 2020 but that tensions seemed to have eased.
The royal commentator added that there is still a big distance between the Cambridges and Sussexes but they will come together for the Royal Family.
Ms Nicholl said: “I want to make it clear that this friendship or relationship is not what it once was.
“It has come under unbearable strain.
“This time last year they weren’t talking to each other.
“William was so angry with Harry that he did not even go to that lunch ahead of the Sandringham summit.

“That is how bad things were but then you fast forward a year and look at now, they spent the holiday season in touch and presents were exchanged.
“But there is an ocean between them, there is a big time difference and there is a distance between them still.”
The royal commentator added: “Absolutely, there are still things to overcome.
“I think they all realise for the greater good and particularly after last year you do have to move on in life.”
