Making amends? In March, Meghan Markle threw her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, under the bus when she claimed the mom-of-three made her cry before her wedding to Prince Harry. Now, it looks like the former actress is trying to get back on Kate's good side.
"Meghan's fearful of losing her title, and the repercussions of Harry's statements about the Royals in his recent Apple TV+ documentary with Oprah Winfrey," a source told heat magazine.
"She's secretly reached out to Kate, as she knows that the only hope they can have of smoothing things over with the family is to get Kate on their side," the insider added. "Kate would rather stay out of any 'secret talks,' as she fears anything she says could be used against her. But she wants peace and civility, especially seeing how much pain this caused William, Charles and the Queen. Her only words of wisdom for Meghan and Harry are to stop once and for all with the public outbursts."
Before their tell-all aired, Kate was hopeful that Meghan and Harry would make their way back into the fold.
"I have been reliably informed she was even telling her friends before the Oprah interview that she did not think it was too late to ‘pull them back in,'" royal expert Camilla Tominey wrote in Stella magazine.
Despite Meghan portraying Kate in a negative light, the latter's uncle believes she may be able to fix things between Harry and Prince William.
"If you want an easy life, work it out privately and have a conversation respectfully. Don't air it in public, it's really hurtful," Kate's uncle Gary Goldsmith told Closer magazine. "The harsh truth — in my opinion — is that if Harry doesn't get a grip and stop this self-indulgent episode, there will soon be no common ground or relationship to rebuild."
"But if anyone can bring peace to the royals, Kate can. Kate is a brilliant arbiter and peacemaker. Every bone in her body is about making friends and doing the best she can ... she's trying to mediate," Goldsmith added.
