Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle were supposed to be good friends. In any case, all observers of the life of the British royal court thought so. The prerequisites for this, it seemed, are obvious: both ladies are "alien", not of royal blood - who else, if not them, support each other in this still somewhat alien world for them.
But something went wrong. Keith and Meghan turned out to be too different, court experts say in a documentary titled "When the Middletons Met the Monarchy," filmed by Channel 5.
“When Megan came to the royal family, everyone was sure that she and Kate would become best friends - after all, they both came from outside. But it turned out that they are very different women,”said court expert Claudia Joseph.
Another expert on the royal family, Richard Kai, admits: the ladies couldn't stand each other. “In this situation, Kate has become something of a collateral damage. He and Megan could not find a common language in any way. And their relationship was not at all as straightforward as most Britons thought, "Kai says in an interview with Express.
Another specialist in the British court, Marlene Koenig, believes that this state of affairs arose due to Markle's mistake.
“I think there are many skeletons in the closet on both sides in this story, and we will hardly ever know the whole truth. But one thing I'm pretty sure about: Meghan, like a newcomer to the palace, had to take the first step. She continued to say in all interviews that it was Kate who did not communicate with her. I think - if you are new at work or somewhere else, you need to go to a more experienced one. Say: "Hello, let's talk? I would like to know where I got married …" ", - said Koenig.
Experts believe: Markle was most tormented by the fact that her voice in the royal family is not heard. Some also disagree with Marlene Koenig. In their opinion, Meghan could have expected that the more experienced in the "integration" into the royal family, Kate, would share her secrets with her. But she did not wait - and decided to leave, taking her prince with her.
