Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge’s “kind gesture” was rejected by Meghan Markle as the distance between the Cambridges and the Sussexes persists, an American journalist claimed.

“I had no clue about that but it didn’t surprise me I thought of course Kate did that so sweet.”

Christopher Andersen, an author, and an American journalist said: “Yeah! She’s very kind person, I mean you always get this from people who have encountered her, worked with her, know her, she’s kind and she gets a bum rap as kind as being a kind of a cold fish.

“I think people think she’s so controlled and frankly, a lot of women have told me they consider it to be awfully thin but she has this little tight group of people around her.

“Maybe, a half dozen people at the most, and she doesn’t let people in that much but I think when Lili was born she could connect with Meghan in that way as well.

He added: “Unfortunately nobody in the royal family has met her yet.”

A Royal insider told US Weekly: “Kate has been reaching out to Meghan a lot more since [Lilibet] 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.”

The pair had been dogged by persistent rumours of a rift but it later emerged their husbands had been the one experiencing some tension between themselves.

An insider explained: “They were never that close, but the reason they’re not speaking is because of the rift between Prince Harry and Prince William.

“Harry and William have communicated sparingly over the last year, but none of their communications have been friendly in quite some time.

“There is real animosity that the brothers have toward one another, and that has spilled over to Meghan and Kate’s relationship, making it very hard for them to be friends or even friendly.”

The Sussexes settled in California shortly after announcing they would step down from their official roles.

Prince Harry has returned to the UK on two occasions since but Meghan Markle has yet to return to the country.
