Did Meghan Markle secretly slight Kate Middleton during her time in the UK? One tabloid claims the Duchess of Sussex offended her sister-in-law during the Jubilee celebrations. Let’s take a closer look at this rumor.
Meghan Markle’s ‘Passive Aggressive’ Behavior
This week, New Idea reports Kate Middleton was devastated when Prince Harry jetted back to the states without sitting down with her and Prince William. “Kate’s so upset. She really hoped that Harry could have stayed in London longer so they could all spend time together,” a royal insider spills. But sources say her warm wishes didn’t quite extend to Meghan Markle. Apparently, the Duchess of Cambridge did everything in her power to avoid her sister-in-law during the celebrations.
The article goes on to insist that Harry and Markle weren’t impressed by the royals’ behavior. The insider says the Sussexes expected a “warmer welcome,” so they didn’t feel invited to stick around any longer. But a “body language expert” tells the tabloid that Markle was the one sending out the most negative energy.
“Catherine remained very neutral throughout the [Service of Thanksgiving],” the expert notes. “But Meghan made a strong passive-aggressive [move] by turning her head away as Catherine walked past which was disrespectful and childish.”
Meghan Markle Dashed ‘Happy Reunion’?
If Meghan Markle really made a “strong passive-aggressive move” towards Kate Middleton during the widely-broadcasted Thanksgiving service, we would have heard about it by now from countless other sources.
There were cameras over every inch of the church, but it doesn’t seem like any of the major broadcasts caught the moment that this “body-language expert” is so indignant about. So, either it didn’t happen, or the moment was so subtle that no other celebrity gossip magazine even noticed.
We’re also skeptical of this claim that Kate Middleton was devastated to hear of Harry’s swift return to the States. According to other gossip sites, the door was open for the Cambridges during the Sussexes’ trip. Some outlets are even reporting that Harry and Markle were the ones upset after Prince William and Middleton allegedly failed to make an appearance at Lilibet’s first birthday party.
Nevertheless, even these whispers are just hearsay. The only ones that truly know how the Sussexes and Cambridges are getting along are in those families. And since we know neither side is letting any information slip to a random tabloid, we’re comfortable dismissing this report entirely.
The Magazine On The Sussexes
Of course, we know better than to trust New Idea on these matters. Not long ago, the outlet reported Meghan Markle was furious with Prince William after he extended an olive branch.
Then the magazine claimed Prince Charles was offering the Sussexes a $100 million mansion if they moved back to the UK. And more recently, the publication claimed Harry’s family was reaching out to him, begging him to stop his wife. Obviously, New Idea isn’t really tuned into the personal lives of the British royal family.
