Prince Harry and Prince William's feud intensified when the Duke of Sussex began dating Meghan Markle. The Prince of Wales questioned the strength of their romance early into their relationship, leaving Harry offended.
William later noted that there would be "a host of difficulties I could expect if I hooked up with an ‘American actress.’”
However, the veteran thinks William “always managed to make” the Suits star's job “sound like a ‘convicted felon.’”
In the docuseries Harry & Meghan, the duke shared that his loved ones were initially fond of his then-girlfriend.
“I remember my family first meeting her and being incredibly impressed,” Harry said. “Some of them didn’t quite know what to do with themselves. Because, I think, they were surprised. They were surprised that a ginger could land such a beautiful woman and such an intelligent woman.”
"There’s the family, and then there’s the people that are running the institution. Those are two separate things," she explained. "And it’s important to be able to compartmentalize that, because the Queen, for example, has always been wonderful to me."
"I mean, we had one of our first joint engagements together," she added.
"I think, a lot of it, that was fed into by the media," the mom-of-two shared. "And I would hope that she would have wanted that corrected, and maybe in the same way that the Palace wouldn’t let anybody else."
Meghan alleged that the palace wouldn't allow Kate to address any of the rumors surrounding their dynamic.
"Negate it, they wouldn’t let her, because she’s a good person," she added. "And I think so much of what I have seen play out is this idea of polarity, where if you love me, you don’t have to hate her. And if you love her, you don’t need to hate me."
"I’ve always worked. I’ve always valued independence," Meghan confessed. "I’ve always been outspoken, especially about women’s rights. I mean, that’s the sad irony of the last four years . . . is I’ve advocated for so long for women to use their voice, and then I was silent."
