Kate Middleton working to ‘pacify’ Meghan Markle and simmer tensions after Lili’s birth


KATE MIDDLETON is working to try and “pacify” Meghan Markle and help simmer tensions between the Cambridges and Sussexes after the birth of baby Lili, a relationship expert told Express.co.uk.

The couple have spoken out about their experience in the Royal Family, airing their dirty laundry in public, which has not gone down well at the Palace.

Meghan’s friend Gayle King said Harry and William spoke after the Oprah Winfrey interview but it was “unproductive”.

They have since seen each other at Prince Philip’s funeral and at the unveiling of the Princess Diana statue in the Sunken Gardens of Kensington Palace, but it was unclear if much progress had been made in ending the feud.

However, reports emerged last month that Kate was “reaching out” to Meghan after the birth of Lili.

A source told US Weekly: “Kate has been reaching out to Meghan a lot more since [Lili] was born.

“She’s sending [notes and] gifts and trying to build up a relationship.

“The Firm has been instructing staffers to reach out more to Harry and Meghan to get them to soften a bit.”

She said: “For the last month I haven’t seen anything new and negative come up from Harry and Meghan after Lili’s birth and I think Kate is making amends and trying to pacify Meghan.

“Because I actually believe Meghan came in with a lot of passion to do good work and she had really good intentions and I think there is huge disappointment on the part of Harry and Meghan, because they did try and they really did want to do good for the Royal Family.

“So do I believe there is hope for reconciliation? Absolutely.”

Ms Wunder added that the birth of a child within a family can represent a “fresh start”, which may be happening here.

She added that Kate, who is from a very stable, loving, normal middle-class family, she had a fantastic basis with which to forge these bonds

She said: “I think the birth of a child always represents a fresh start and an opportunity for a new beginning.

“And I think Kate comes from a very stable, loving family and she understands that this isn’t about ego, this is about understanding that ‘we are a family’.

“And so I think it’s amazing that she makes this first step towards Meghan, who I am sure also feels happy that she is being reached out to.”

The 95-year-old monarch will be marking 70 years on the throne in 2022 with huge events in London and many across the country.

Ms Wunder told Express.co.uk that the Queen’s actions are “most important” as she is the head of the family, and indeed the nation.

She said this gesture shows that she is “loving and kind and welcoming”.
