Even though Prince Harry has gotten close with Orlando Bloom since they live in the same neighborhood, Meghan Markle is apparently still pissed off about a remark Katy Perry made years ago.
"Orlando is very sympathetic towards Harry and Meghan and does reach out if he ever sees anything suspicious in the neighborhood," a source said, adding that "Meghan is keenly aware of a comment that Katy Perry made in 2018 about her wedding dress and is notorious for holding a grudge."
"While the comment wasn't meant to be hurtful, Meghan felt under siege at that time and was overwhelmed by arguments with staff, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Thomas Markle. I would not expect to see Meghan and Katy carpooling to PTA meetings anytime in the future!" the insider divulged. "Harry is sincerely grateful to anyone that is proactive in protecting his family, The Duke of Sussex and Orlando fit more into the acquaintance category than friends."
In 2018, the singer previously spoke out about Meghan's wedding to Harry. “I would have done one more fitting. I’m never not going to tell the truth! One more fitting, but I love you. Kate, Kate, Kate won, Kate won!” she said.
She continued, “I’m so happy for them, and, you know, I don’t know them from Adam, but it’s amazing what she’s doing with all this, her humanitarian efforts. You know, the fact that she’s a proud feminist, I love all that. I support her as another woman and love her and wish them both well.”
As The Royal Observer previously reported, Harry revealed that he and Bloom bonded over their children and what it's like to grow up in the spotlight.
"Just two days ago, Orlando Bloom sent me a message — because he's just down the road and we sort of keep in contact because of the paparazzi — he sent me a photograph which his security got of this long-haired guy with a beanie on, with his ear pods in, with his massive camera lying in the back of his 4x4 truck," he said on Dax Shepard's podcast in May 2021. "A woman driving who did the peace sign sitting there as a distraction, and he is laid down in the back of this truck taking photographs of them out with their kid and whoever else is in that area."
