Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton famously argued over Princess Charlotte's bridesmaid's dress.

"Being in the royal family is a lonely place and Kate’s got very few people now, especially after the Queen’s death, who she can go to and confide in," expert Jennie Bond told GB News. "Think back to when Diana and Fergie were always giggling and would help each other let off steam… Kate hasn’t got that."

The duchesses famously fought over Princess Charlotte's bridesmaid's dress, and Meghan branded Kate as "formal'' in Harry & Meghan.

"The fact that things didn’t work out with Meghan was a real blow because Prince Harry’s bride would have been another person stuck in the same situation," Bond continued.

Meghan Markle fled the U.K. in 2020.

Although Kate isn't able to chat with her American in-law, she fortunately has other connections.

"One reason Kate has made such a success of her royal role is because she has a strong inner circle – and it extends way beyond her parents and siblings," the author explained.

"Carole and Pippa have obviously been on hand during Kate’s recovery, I’m sure Carole must have been very worried about her daughter and has probably been clucking around like a mother hen," Bond continued. "But sometimes, your oldest friends – who’ve been with you through thick and thin – are just the ticket."

"Kate has also forged strong friendships with many of William’s crowd, and they will all have been offering practical help – particularly with the children – as William juggles his work commitments with his priority of caring for his wife and family," she added.
