Duchess Kate ‘feels sorry for Meghan,’ Kate is trying to ‘bring the couples together’

British Royals are seen at the Wimbledon Championships Day 12

I’m really glad that we’ve gotten away from the “battle of the duchesses,” which is what was happening this time last year. The British tabloids were doing the most to convince people that the Duchess of Cambridge loathed the Duchess of Sussex and that Meghan was making Kate cry on the reg, and you know, other stuff. While Kate has certainly benefited from the smear campaign against Meghan – Kate can truly “do no wrong” these days, according to the British tabs – I really don’t think Kate’s fingerprints are all over the smear campaign. Yes, Kate is passive aggressive at times, but mostly Kate and Meghan seems to view each other as what they are: work colleagues and sisters-in-law who make the effort with each other for holidays and special occasions. So… considering Meghan is going through a hellish time with the media and the palace courtiers, do you think Kate has offered Meghan any kind of support behind the scenes?

The Duchess of Cambridge is said to be doing her best to draw a line under any past “difficulties” between Prince William and Prince Harry. According to royal author Phil Dampier, Kate Middleton is reportedly trying to “bring the couples together” after “feeling sorry for Meghan”.

Speaking to the Express, he said: “Behind the scenes I’m told Kate is doing her best to bring everyone together and help Meghan. None of them want to let the Queen down so Kate is trying to patch things up in private. I’m told she has reached out to Meghan and spoken to her on the phone. Kate feels sorry for her and knows that Meghan is struggling.”

Kate “feels sorry for Meghan.” I mean… I feel sorry for Meghan too, she’s being racially abused and smeared and now she’s being gaslighted. But it feels icky to say that Kate feels sorry for Meghan, like… Kate pities poor, wayward Meghan, who can’t do anything right. In Touch Weekly had another version of this, only in this version, Kate comes across as more of a heartless B.

Duchess Kate Middleton is trying not to get roped into any of the drama involving her brother-in-law, Prince Harry, and his wife, Duchess Meghan Markle, a source told In Touch exclusively. “To some extent, Kate does feel sorry for Meghan,” the insider claimed. “She has a good heart and isn’t the kind of person to say, ‘You’ve brought it upon yourself,’ but for the most part she’s keeping herself out of the situation. Kate has enough on her plate looking after three kids and fulfilling royal duties. She barely has a moment to herself and tries to avoid drama and conflict at all costs.”

“Harry and Meghan are putting on a brave face, but [truth be told] they’ve been struggling since the documentary aired,” the insider noted. “But they were also struggling beforehand. While Harry has no regrets about doing it, the ongoing backlash is wearing them both down.” The source said the couple is “supporting each other through this tough time, but it’s not always easy. Aside from Harry, Meghan’s leaning on [her mother] Doria and her closest friends for advice. She FaceTimes Doria every day. Her mom is one of the few people she can rely on and trust.”

[From In Touch Weekly]

Kate isn’t going to tell Meghan that she brought this on herself. Huh. How did Meghan bring this on herself? By being so… American, biracial and divorced, one would assume. For daring to fall in love. For daring to have a work ethic. For daring to be more interesting than the “golden [white] couple.”

Anyway, the Remembrance Day events are happening this weekend. My guess is that once again, Kate and Meghan will do the heavy lifting of making nice for the cameras, and William and Harry will stand off to the side looking grumpy.

    This fairy tale about Kate playing the great white savior of Meghan is 🙄

    • Lisa says:

      My thoughts exactly. But not surprised by the narrative they are trying to push at all.

    • swirlmamad says:

      Just gross.

    • Oh No says:

      I can just picture Kate playing Mariah Carey’s Hero on loop as she shops for ‘Hang In There’ posters to send to Meghan.

      Real inspiration that one.

      But on a serious note, if she had any sense she would tell he team to put an end the these stories because they don’t make her look good at all

      • Kristina says:

        So, what is Camilla doing? The Queen? Charles?

      • Becks1 says:

        Can people stop with the “what is the queen doing” comments? It has been said on here multiple times that the Queen, Charles, etc should all be doing more, and that the queen probably could have stopped most of these attacks ages ago if she had wanted to.

        This article is about Kate and how she is saving the family. It’s okay to say that Kate should be helping Meghan and publicly offering support. That does not mean that other family members don’t have to do the same.

      • Oh No says:

        Absolutely nothing. But they do actually put in the work and have a work history.

        And the tabloids aren’t rewriting history as vigorously for them as they are with Kate.

        Next on channel 9 news, The Duchess of Cambridge manages to walk in a straight line while breathing through both nostrils. England will never have a finer Queen Regent…

        It’s silly.

      • Nic919 says:

        Camilla is one of the few royals who has publicly said positive things about Meghan in public and did so when the engagement was first announced. Besides she’s not the one spinning white saviour articles about herself in the media. Until she does that, bringing her in is simply deflection from what Kate hasn’t done to support Meghan publicly.

      • Kristina says:

        Fair enough, @Becks1. That’s true. I just wish so many of these ridiculous tabloid narratives would switch. So much piling on all the time of their same old storylines.

      • Becks1 says:

        @Kristina I can see that. There is such emphasis on the Cambridge vs Sussex “feud” and there should be more discussion about what the Queen should be doing here. If she can ride to church with Andrew, she can damn well make a public show of support for her grandson.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        I have always felt for some gut reason that we do not know everything. The smearing of the Sussexes makes the whole BRF look bad in the long run. There has to be a reason why QEII and Chucky have done and said nothing. The only reason I can come up with is Andrew but the Andrew excuse does not cut quite enough bait for me to believe his problems are the only reason.

      • PrincessK says:

        It is difficult to know how much power Kate actually wields behind the Palace walls.

    • Chelle says:

      Come on now. Don’t be like that. Your comments are overly dramatic and unfair to Kate. After all, if she can heal Broken Britain, then surely she can save Meghan too. As a Meghan fan, I’d think you’d think she was deserving of that. OMG, sometimes you just can’t win on this site😂.

    • Lorelei says:

      The way the first one is worded is so gross. It makes it clear that Kate is doing…whatever she’s doing not because she genuinely cares about Meghan, but because “no one wants to let the Queen down.” What a pathetic family.

      I know it’s the Sun, so grain of salt, but still.

    • Abena Asantewaa says:

      Why believe this RR; Phil Dampier, from The Express, another vile tabloid, that has been relentless in their smear and lies, both in print and online. Why is Kate becoming aware now, of all the hate Meghan is facing? The MPs letter has put them all to shame, and once again, like the Smart Works Capsule, this same editor is trying to .make it about perfect Kate, and being a knight in shinning amour. Phil Dampier is a big Meghan hater from the Express who lies often, he is just doing a whole lot of toadying for The Cambridges.

      • bamaborn says:

        Exactly, Abena! Like I said earlier, look for queenie and Charles to stick finger in air for temp interpertation and act accordingly.

    • Lucy De Blois says:

      I’m sure she is very sorry! It doesn’t affect her, her family or her status. Why she would bother? I feel the hand and the glove of William on that and I suppose Kate knows pretty well that she has to dance his music or to find another ball. Each time I read and analize the informations about this nasty business, I’m more and more sure that Wiliiam is trying hard to push the brother, not under the bus, but out of the family. For good. I’m also more and more sure his ego isn’t taking the blow of Harry’s popularity: that’s the big problem; while the baby brother played the buffon on wild parties and appearing here and there on ceremonies, everything was just fine. No rift. As soon as he started showing his more mature side, the skies fell. No thanks, too much obvious. He’s not the first one of this type I meet. I saw that story before played too many times.

  2. Rapunzel says:

    And according to the Fail, Kate is “advising” Meg to “learn from her mistakes ”

    Eye. Roll.

    The tabs are now setting up a scenario whereby they stop attacking the Sussexes and say that it’s because the Cambridges taught them to behave properly.

    • undergalaxy says:

      Imagine being a clever capable woman and some muppet who can barely get through a meeting without laughing like a hyena and seems to have trouble wearing a dress AND a slip together thinking they can advise you.

      Meghan must be gritting her teeth.

    • Noodle says:

      Don’t forget to also to “move on.” Hand to God, I hate when people tell others to “move on,” especially when moving on is what’s in the best interest of the one saying it. “Your pain makes me uncomfortable; move on.” Get out here with that…

      • Nic919 says:

        A white person telling a person of colour to “move on” from racism and xenophobia is not a good look at all. Kate needs to get some non white people advising her on PR stat because this comes off way worse than not saying anything at all.

    • Silas says:

      It’s Phil Dampier’s angle in these stories.

      But also here is the problem with getting in bed with the tabloid press. How do Will and Kate get a better message out about showing support behind the scenes. First they have to let go of their condescension and defensiveness but if the tabloid press feels criticized, the embigening will stop. The tabloid press is as invested in putting down the Sussexes but now the public is paying attention to how the family behaves.

  3. Digital Unicorn says:

    I read this yesterday and my eyes rolled out the door at the passive aggressive snark aimed at Meghan via her being pitied by the great and perfect white future Consort. In an effort to yet again paint Kate as some sort of saint they’ve made her look bad – claiming to pity someone while jumping around on the bandwagon that’s attacking them is not a good look. Either the Cambridges fail to see how bad this looks on them or the press have way too much evidence on William and Rose Who?

    I have a feeling that William and Harry will be made to make like they are best buddies for those remembrance appearances. The cats out the bag that they’ve had a falling out.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      ” the press have way too much evidence on William and Rose Who?”

      This is exactly my theory as to why Bill Normal Cambridge is acting the way he is acting because nothing else makes any sense. I really wish Lady Colin Campbell (who is well connected) would write a book about this whole disgusting mess and blow the lid off.

      • Devon says:

        It’s just as likely that William is just an asshole. He’s known for being jealous and petty and has thrown Harry under the bus in the media way before the Rose scandal happened. I think that is just making excuses for William and Kate being terrible.

      • Abena Asantewaa says:

        Lady Colin Campbell, has been brainwashed by P Morgan, so has also always made disparaging remarks about Meghan, concerning her father.

    • yinyang says:

      @Digital Unicorn I really hope we don’t see Meghan smiling and acting uneffected by what’s been going on. I know she feels she has to put on a strong face for the monarchy and blah blah blah, but she really doesn’t, she needs to be true to herself, Archie and Harry first and foremost.

  4. Seraphina says:

    When will the Church of England canonize Kate. All the good deeds and alms and charity work. And now focusing on her sister in law. Will she be known as St. Kate the great Chutney maker? 🤣

  5. DaisySharp says:

    Who knows what she’s really thinking, I take this kind of thing with a grain of salt. But, the women having to try and make peace is very common. I’ve seen it in my immediate family, but I’ve also seen it where the two SIL’s don’t try and make peace, and in fact, maybe a bit of the opposite, and guess what? That gets really explosive. I knew it was the brothers right away last year, because I see my own brothers. we don’t have the headlines, or a bi-racial scapegoat, but boy do we have a lot of drama and misery.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      It is a tale as old as time from palaces to your average home, the women do the emotional work to smooth things over. This is just another element “Wife work”, the SIL hard at work to make everything right between the boys ie: two grown men acting like fools.

    • ADS says:

      “…we don’t have the headlines, or a bi-racial scapegoat…”

      Ouch, I really felt that one. I genuinely feel like the royals thank goddess every day for their “biracial scapegoat” which they sacrifice at the alter of the tabloids so as to get away with their lazy ways, turnip toffgates and paedophilic tendencies….

      • Noodle says:

        I’ve always heard the comment (in other contexts, like workplaces) “They eat their young” and “Eat or be eaten,” but in this situation, it truly is a case of scapegoating (and not in the Lori Loughlin definition of the word). Gah. Imagine being biracial and smart and driven and having that portrayed as somehow more evil than Paedophilia. (My spellcheck doesn’t like the English spelling and I don’t care; I’m sticking with it).

    • KKC says:

      Totally agreed. I don’t think there’s a universe where Meghan and Kate are best friends (aside from their unfortunate taste in men, what do they have in common?) but it’s pretty clear to me they are constantly doing the PR labor here whether it’s sitting together at Wimbledon or walking together for the church/remembrance rollouts while William and Harry throw royal mantrums.

      And I will say this re: the tension Lainey alluded too between them in the whirlwind dating year for Harry and Meghan, that I honestly don’t know if I’d immediately roll out the red carpet in that circumstance either. Particularly considering the 10 year hazing Kate got and the fizzle out of Cressida/constant return to Chelsea (to say nothing of the rumors of a brief Ellie Goulding fling), I can understand mis-judging the nature of their relationship before the engagement/wedding/baby. My (adult) brother has a similar spotty dating history wherein he and his high school ex inevitably get back together for a few months at a time every few years or so, and I’m very sure I’d side eye the hell out of any whirlwind anything from him given that situation.

  6. Pineapple says:

    Oh, thank gosh for angelic Duchess Kate. Blerg. Where was angelic Duchess Kate when her sister-in-law was being racially smeared in the press? Oh right, no where to be found.

  7. Hikaru says:

    Maybe Billy boy should try sorting out this mess himself instead of hiding behind his wife’s skirt?

  8. Bella DuPont says:

    Nah, I think Kate is a heartless b-tch.

    The way she (and future, Future King William) have taken advantage of the Sussexes woes has been disgusting to watch. Basking in their scandals and even helping to fuel some of them (staged budget flights)…..

    It’s been incredibly revealing.

    • undergalaxy says:

      And Carole’s behind the scenes having a meltdown trying to play this properly.

      • Bella DuPont says:

        In my view, Carole is the real mastermind behind this. She didn’t go from air hostess to future mother of the queen (fair play Carole! 👍), without being able to spot and ruthlessly neutralize potential threats before they even know they are threats.

      • morrigan01 says:

        @undergalaxy @Bella DuPont you both have said what I was coming here to say: that I too think Carole is the real source/person behind this PR. Because, IMO, Kate actually isn’t savvy enough when it come to the press to try and spin anything, even doing it in such a bad and transparent way. Remember, it was *Carole* that went and made nice/friends with the press, particularly the Daily Mail. She thinks she’s helping Kate and her image with BS like this because she’s so aggressively trying to keep her daughter’s position and image secure.

        IMO, Kate isn’t ruthless, she’s a doormat. She was made one by her mother who is the ultimate Stage Mother, and also by William who is like his father in that he doesn’t want his wife outshining him. So she basically just goes along with whatever either of them want her to do or be. Do I feel sorry for her? Kinda, but not really given that she’s happy to benefit from it all too.

      • PrincessK says:

        I think there could be a Carole Middleton angle to this. She knows how to use the press for her family and advancement. Imagine the uproar should Doria give a long interview to the press like Carole did recently.

    • Chelle says:

      I get the thing about taking advantage while your opponent is down and flat on his/her back. However, W/K (or their people) have been stupid, shallow, too revealing and ham-fisted with the attempts to position themselves as salt of the earth and doing God’s work. Of course, that stuff plays to a certain audience but Harry and now Meghan have both separately and together brought a much more diverse and broader audience to the table who will call BS on the so-called Mother Earth and protective big brother vaudevillian acts that the Cambridges stage.

      Everyone knows this is personal and that it’s between the brothers. Due to primogeniture William (and Kate) will walk away with the lion’s share with just about everything the BRF has to offer, e.g., the duchy, the properties and the crown. So, why is he essentially scuffling in the streets with his little brother over what basically amounts to crumbs? Cause it’s personal. Someone has deeply insulted someone’s pride or dignity. There is no patching over that one. As a matter of fact, if they were American, I’d say someone was going to blow over thanksgiving dinner and that there would be a fist fight in the living room—punch bowls over turning, furniture moving, grandma pissed off, kids screaming and someone saying “I told you he was going to blow.”😂

      • Nic919 says:

        William has always been the one to control things, as he does with Kate and as he did when Harry was on his own. Now that Harry has Meghan’s support he is comfortable in doing his own thing and William doesn’t like it. And because the heir to the heir has been able to do what he wants basically since birth (Diana confirmed he was treated differently from Harry overall) he doesn’t understand the pushback. William is not very different from Dump in how they were spoiled and indulged from day one without any real consequences.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        Plus William is like his father in that he doesn’t like being overshadowed and is reportedly very competitive with his own family over press attention. William is driving a lot of this from a place of petty jealously, Kate is as usual does whatever he does.

      • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

        I think it’s a combo of being the heir apparent, he’s used to having Harry to throw under the bus to cover his a$$, and a HUGE part of it is that once William lost the “pretty boy” status, along with most of his hair, he became very jealous of Harry’s continuing popularity and looks.

        Also, Harry having his “big” projects (Invictus, Sentabale, the project with Oprah, etc) really make William look like a total do-nothing.

      • PrincessK says:

        I don’t think money is the issue, although William’s future position will mean that people like Sophie, Zara, Beatrice and Eugenie might suck up to him to improve their future well being.

        The main issue is that William needs to be a popular Prince ….probably why he has adopted football as a pet project.

    • Mego says:

      I’m with you Bella, the Cambridges are not nice people and I’d go so far as to say machiavellian. I can’t help but think KP is colluding with the press around this smear campaign. Those tiara and making Kate cry stories didn’t come out of nowhere.

      • Lurkmode says:

        I think the tiara story came from Andrew and it doesn’t make sense because 1) why would the Queen show Meghan a selection of tiaras to choose from, then say “No, not that one” and 2) how would Meghan know which tiaras the Queen had to begin with? But ANDREW would know and the story boils down to “a REAL princess got the tiara, not this fake one.”

        The story both Harry & Meghan have said is the Queen showed them a selection and they picked out the tiara together. So when Andrew spins a story of Meghan threw a tantrum over the tiara, he’s calling Harry a liar too.

        Making Kate cry? Kate was probably crying at a grain of salt falling on the floor …she had just given birth to Louis.

        Kate’s mother does the dirty work while Kate reaps the benefits.

    • Devon says:

      Yeah, if Kate wasn’t heartless she would have done something publicly by now. When complete strangers exhibit more sympathy and public support than your sister-in-law, you know sister-in-law is an asshole.

      • Chelle says:

        Or that she won’t publicly (privately?) risk the wrath of her husband.

        I need to say this before I say the next thing: I am a Meghan supporter. I have never related to Kate. I think where she may be the right woman for William she’s not the right woman for the “job”.

        Now, other than human decency or good PR, why should Kate publicly/privately support Meghan and by extension Harry and Meghan? What does she personally get out of it? Absolutely nothing.

        Most of us have been watching W/K since the dating years, and some have even been watching long before that. Based on the public record, when has Kate shown or exihibited on a continous basis that she is altruistic, compassionate or emphathetic? I’m not saying she’s heartless. There isn’t an upside or a downside for her personally. Big blue is on her finger and she’s locked it down with three babies. The Middletons are in the house!

        Why suffer the wrath of William? That type of energy is better served in phasing women out and pruning rose bushes from the garden.

  9. L84Tea says:

    I read the article yesterday online and about puked over how many times they used the phrase “she feels sorry for her”. Like, Meg is a grown adult and she doesn’t need her craptastic sister in law’s pity.

    I am very salty over this ridiculous article…

    • Bookworm says:

      Meghan woefully shared that not many people ask if she’s ok. So if Kate is reaching out with support, that’s what Meghan wanted. I don’t know how that’s translating to “pity” other than for people who despise Kate no matter what she does.

      • Silas says:

        Concern and pity are not the same.

        And Kate’s apparently doing this while being very busy and wanting to stay out of all the drama. So where is the concern?

        If this is a leak and not Phil Dampier being a troll, the Cambridges need better pr people. Kate comes off as a condescending ahole.

      • swirlmamad says:

        It’s the way it’s being phrased. I know this should all be taken with a grain of salt, but to say that Kate “feels sorry for her”, Meghan needs to “move on” and basically to own up to her “mistakes” (what mistakes?!??), this is absolutely being couched as 100% pity and not sympathy/empathy in the slightest.

      • L84Tea says:

        Exactly Silas. Its the condescention that is grossing me out.

      • Sass says:

        For someone a with the name bookworm you don’t really have great reading comprehension, how pathetically ironic.

        Offering support is not the same thing as expressing pity. “Kate feels sorry for Meghan” is literally what pity is. Asking someone if they’re okay is concern. I hope you understand now.

  10. undergalaxy says:

    Kate couldn’t bring two curtains together.

  11. Toot says:

    Don’t believe this crap about Kate supposedly now reaching out. These royal insiders are just trying to big up Kate as usual

  12. Guest says:

    Omg this is so cringeworthy now. It’s nice that the great white rose of England will help the biracial american. 🙄

  13. Sassy says:

    It went from the Cambridges are distancing themselves from them to white savior Kate coming to save Meghan.

  14. Kyle says:

    This is as offensive as it gets. The white savior pities the poor biracial lesser.

    • Mego says:

      It is, especially since in truth, the biracial is far greater. An intelligent, kind hearted, hard working person who I respect and admire.

  15. TheOriginalMia says:

    Kate isn’t going to rock her boat by bucking William now. Not over an outsider. Kate will do what she’s always done. Show up at Remembrance, smile, wave and look solemn. But bridge the gap between Harry and William? Yeah, that’s not happening. Reach out to Meghan in solidarity? Nah.

    Meghan doesn’t need FFQC to save her. She can save herself. She’s a blank woman. It’s what we do.

    • S808 says:

      I don’t even think Kate breathes without William’s approval, no way is she gonna go out of her way to help H&M. After that budget flight fiasco the thought of either of them being “concerned” and trying to “help” sounds like joke to me.

      • KKC says:

        Totally agreed on the toxic dynamics of those two, but I do wonder if the wedding/children/Queen’s award for basically “putting up with Williams’ dumb ass” has given her a more even footing for the first time, and it’s playing out in the Rosie Turnip Toff drama.

    • PrincessK says:

      Kate can rock the boat if she wishes, she has three kids and is in a powerful position. William needs to look good and power has shifted to Kate but even for her it all comes with a heavy price. You cannot buy true love.

  16. Nic919 says:

    These articles are just so bad. If Kate truly supported Meghan in all this she would have said something publicly instead of these half ass comments made indirectly by the media, kind of like the 72 MPs who don’t know meghan and aren’t related to her in anyway. It’s not a great look to remain silent while total strangers express support for your sister in law. It would have been better to have kept on being absolutely silent instead of this obtuse behind the scenes media response.

  17. S808 says:

    “Kate is doing her best to bring everyone together and help Meghan.” Is she finally in the business of helping people? Broken Britain would like word. KP is truly spinning in circles.

  18. Guest2.0 says:

    As if any of these tabloid rags know what’s happening behind the scenes. More fan fiction to sell newspapers and generate clicks. And of course, the great white savior must be shown as helping and guiding the wayward American biracial duchess.

    • Rogue says:

      I agree Guest. I think this is tabloids keeping the storyline going and projecting. Dampier is a Chelsy stan who loves the white saviour narrative-he was the one that had that Sun article that Meghan owed her SmartSet launch success to Kate.

      Also saw he had comment that Kate&William would be devastated if Harry&Meghan left the royal family. Whether that’s true or not think that’s also projecting royal commentators thoughts- they haven’t been this busy in years.

      I see that people like him keep pleading for them to drop the war against the press (I.e the lawsuits). Media folks must be very concerned about these lawsuits, that’s why they are largely ignoring the MPs letter.

      • Lorelei says:

        Exactly. As soon as I saw the source was Phil Dampier, I knew not to take a word of it seriously.

        And I think that if M&H did leave, W&K would only be “devastated” because it would make them look so bad.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        Bill and Cathy (especially Cathy) will look bad when the Daily Fail turns on her once again.

        Bill and Cathy WILL BE devastated. Bill will throw Cathy under the bus to protect himself.

  19. The Sun and In Touch… if only we could get confirmation from the Enquirer we would know this is all true!!!

    I’d buy that it’s on the women to make nice though, not because of this in depth reporting but because it’s always our job to fix the men acting like children.

  20. Beli says:

    The line about Kate being too busy with royal duties to get involved cracked me up!

    Kate won’t rock the boat. If William doesn’t want to step in and support the Sussexes, there’s no way Kate will. And she really seems to be enjoying the sainthood that had been bestowed on her recently.

    • My3cents says:

      Right, my eyes rolled so hard….barley has time for herself!
      Of course now that she is peace convoy to the UN, and doing the school run.

    • Becks1 says:

      I think your second paragraph hits the nail on the head. Kate may like Meghan, she seems to love Harry, and I’m sure she does feel bad about the way the press is treating Meghan. But, she’s not going to do anything to publicly offer support (besides Wimbledon) without William’s approval.

      And she definitely enjoys her newfound sainthood, even if she has nothing to do with the smear campaign.

    • Cerys says:

      Exactly. If Kate has reached out to Meghan, it will only be because William has given his consent. It will then look like the saintly, perfect Cambridges have tried to help the difficult Sussexes. If it goes well, great, but if not, then it will all be H&M’s fault but either way, Team Cambridge will look good.

    • Lexa says:

      I actually think it’s much more likely Kate was more focused on her brother’s mental health crisis/being pregnant/her young children to focus on what Meghan was going through. It also wouldn’t surprise me if she didn’t have a ton of sympathy initially as she probably saw the press hazing as being more in line with her own treatment than it was—a sort of unsympathetic “it’s all part of the gig” mentality.

      I’m not sure I believe this exact story (though we have heard about her reaching out before—she’s the one who supposedly brought them flowers after Harry came over and yelled at them about not being more welcoming to Meghan in front of Meghan) but I do think, for all of her faults, Kate is very family oriented and would be the one to care about the brothers’ relationship falling apart, maybe even more than the brothers.

      • Nic919 says:

        That’s a very generous assessment, but even if it was accurate, this current round of PR is not helpful and shows a huge blind spot. Especially when total strangers have no problem showing public support and she has yet to do that, but still wants to claim that she is supporting her. You can’t have it both ways. Either show public support or stay quiet. Taking credit for support that no one has actually seen doesn’t come off as sincere.

    • bamaborn says:

      Been grinning like a Cheshire cat for a while now. Except the Rose Who episode, of course.

  21. Originaltessa says:

    I think Kate and Harry genuinely get along and like each other. William seems like a complete ass, frankly, and I’m sure Kate has some regret for how it’s all going down. She seems nice? Like she wouldn’t like confrontation and just wants everyone to get along. But is she actively helping Meghan? Really doesn’t seem like it. Walking together or going to an event together once in a blue blue moon doesn’t help Meghan. Kate and William need to stop the courtiers and leakers, and need to protect their family. But they aren’t. William might even be feeding it.

  22. Onlyashes85 says:

    It’s great timing that these stories were simmering yesterday about Kate playing peacemaker. And then the news about the 72 MP’s supporting Meg dropped. Like a bomb.

    On one hand we have either tabs building themselves a new narrative/storyline in all this to prop up the Cambridges, with Kate doing “the most.” Not sure if I think these were leaks or crumbs from KP or not. But still. Anything to make it appear that the Sussexes need to be brought to heel and that the future future king and Queen are the ones to do it.

    And then we have 72 MP’s from different political persuasions coming together to ACTUALLY support Meg. Because this *really* isn’t that complicated or outrageous or hard to show some public support to someone whose been taking it on the chin for the last few years.

    I mean. The timing is delicious.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      It is and the fact that MPs have come straight to Meghan’s defence while her own SIL has the Fail put out these ‘I feel sorry for her but am just too busy to get involved’ really really makes the DoLittles look bad.

      And lets not forget that most of these embiggening stories are coming from the Fail, a rag that Mummy has connections with – connections that date back to the dating years.

      • Beli says:

        Fantastic point. Those MPs, many of whom are also mother’s, who have never been under as much pressure and the target of as much bile as they are now, managed to do something.

        Saying that Kate hasn’t the time is insulting to everyone involved, including Kate.

      • Lorelei says:

        One of the MPs just spoke on camera and her remarks were wonderful:


      • Onlyashes85 says:

        Very true, @ DU. It shows, in my view, that KP did not see this letter of support coming. By comparison, these articles make the Cambridge’s “actions” seem so insufficient. Which, they are. And we already know why.

    • Guest2.0 says:

      @Lorelei. Thanks for sharing that clip. Holly Lynch is awesome and her comments were on point.

    • Onlyashes85 says:

      @Lorelei – I love what she said. Keep talking, Holly!

  23. Valiantly Varnished says:

    She feels so sorry for her but has felt no need to refute ANY of the stories that pit them against each other. They can spare me this white savior BS. All of this serves Kate perfectly. She gets to be the perfect white princess while continuing to be lazy and do the bare minimum.

  24. Becks1 says:

    LMAO at “barely has a moment to herself.”

    Anyway, the tone to these articles is gross and patronizing.

  25. Cidy says:

    I didnt get the “saint Kate” vibe from this story. Historically she and Harry have always gotten along and I never believed the beef was between the women. I dont think shes doing any saintly work or going out of her way, but I can see her reaching out to Meg. I dont think they would have any bad blood between them.

    While Kate didnt get the racist angle (obviously) she has also been dragged through the press before, not to this extent but I think that it’s something her and Meg could bond over. I think they have a lot to learn from each other, they both have husbands who want to fake normalcy in the most abnormal lifestyle ever, they can build and bond from that and I hope they do. I hope to see them do more events together because quite frankly both of them are more interesting than their respective partners, the blood royals are like watching paint dry, they need their drama and partners to seem interesting.

    Really the problem has been, and always will be Will and Harry.

  26. P says:

    Omg, I dont know how Kate manages 3 kids and royal duties! She must be some kind of super woman.
    All moms do that and more, without rich husbands, nannies, and working 8 hours a day, everyday.

  27. MellyMel says:

    Oh here comes the White Savior to fix everything! This makes me want to gag.

  28. My3cents says:

    Kate UN Peace convoy to the rescue! Too bad she wasn’t around in WWII.

  29. Britt says:

    These Tabloids are shaking. That letter from the MP’s got them shook because now she has political support and I’m sure even more from other politicians and celebs that we don’t know about. This story is phony and this is just the mail’s way of saying, “ Its not personal but we got papers to sell but don’t worry it won’t last for long”. If anything, they’re making Kate look horrible with these white savior complex stories. Enough already.

  30. MsIam says:

    This is so stupid. I still believe that a lot of the negativity is coming from the Cambridge/Middleton camp. Whether they instruct the courtiers to leak or they egg it on, their hands are all over this. So I don’t believe St. Kate is coming to the rescue for anybody, let alone Meghan. I think it’s just more of the canonization of “the perfect future, future kween!”b.s. Notice how there is not one word of condemnation of how the press has treated Meghan, only that Kate will “reach out, maybe even make a phone call!”

  31. STRIPE says:

    I think this, like everything reported with the BRF, is probably half true.

    The press is nice to KM now but we all remember that they were not great to her for a while. I’m sure she feels for Megan in that respect. Clearly they are not super close so she may not be willing to get into the fray with her in-laws and the entire palace infrastructure about it.

    I just think so often we and the British press paint things in the BRF so black and white when really like EVERY family in the world, relationship dynamics are extremely complicated- maybe even more so in the BRF due to the power structure and media spotlight.

    • Lady D says:

      She doesn’t have to get into any fray. She just has to go out for lunch with Meghan. Go Halloween costume shopping together. Meet for a swim once a week with the kids. Take a yoga class together. Share a gd umbrella. It’s not hard, show support without having to say a word to the media. It’s yet to happen. Maybe Kate just didn’t have the time in the past two years for a ladies lunch?

      • STRIPE says:

        I think those things would be “the fray” in this case. Obviously Will and Harry are in a rift. Maybe Kate and Meghan haven’t built that strong of a bond that it would be worth it for Kate to step in, period, given the situation.

        All I’m saying is nothing is black and white when families are involved. People have their own reasons for doing things and I have found that often they are much less nefarious than it seems.

      • Nic919 says:

        If she doesn’t feel she wants to step into the fray, that’s her decision. But she can’t then tell the press she is being supportive. And while the In Touch story may be bs, Dampier is more closely linked to KP so until they speak out and say Dampier doesn’t speak for her, then we have to assume she approved this. They certainly can shut down stories about botox and hair extensions, so there is no reason they can’t clear this up.

  32. Sunshine says:

    I hope Meghan does not attend. Or at least sit with the public. It is the public that has her back. Not that family. She needs to start boycotting these things pretending that these people give a damn about her.

    • Cerys says:

      The Remembrance Day ceremonies are mandatory for all senior royals and should not be about family issues. Meghan would never be forgiven by the press and the majority of UK citizens if she chose to sit elsewhere to make a point.

    • Nic919 says:

      Remembrance Day ceremonies are huge in the UK and if Meghan skipped it she would never be forgiven. Supporting the military in the UK is a big deal and one of the few times Kate was criticized more openly after she was married was when she skipped the St Patrick Day military event to get her hair done and “not create expectations of annual attendance”. Meghan is better off attending the ceremony because she’s already winning at this point. The BRF have egg on their face with this public MP support.

      • Becks1 says:

        Yeah, Meghan is definitely going to attend the Remembrance Day ceremony, and she will stand with the royal family. Skipping it is not an option and frankly, given Harry’s stance on the military and veterans, I don’t think its something she would even consider.

      • Noodle says:

        Moreso, I think Meghan would never dream of NOT attending. She fulfills expectations of her, and would not skip such an important event as a protest. She has too much integrity for that.

    • Elisa says:

      My conclusion from all the recent developments around the BRF is: the Firm comes first, family second (exception: TQ protecting Andrew).
      So if Meghan (or Kate or any of them) tries to make a point by sitting somewhere else or even boycotting events etc.,… hmmm, I’m actually curious what would happen. IMO this person would be treated like an outcast by the Firm.

  33. Jen says:

    These comments about drama have the Middleton’s fingerprints all over them. Vanity Fair published that too. So you know it’s royal approved.

    What is so sad is BP, CH, and Kensington have no clue they are losing the PR game for the most part. Sure there is a large majority of crustiest. They learned nothing from Diana.

  34. Bohemian Angel says:

    OH FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! I am soooo fed up with all this!

    What with the great white saint Kate and Brexit, the UK is an utter shit hole because of all this white nationalism nonsense. The Cambridges are only sending their minions out with these shite stories to make themselves look good, esp with the Archbishop of Canterbury and the MPs coming out in support of Meghan.
    I’m so fed up with the ‘royals’ and really hope the black commonwealth countries are looking at all of this and decide they don’t need to involve themselves with this useless ‘club’ that Queenie so loves #abolishthemonarchy
    They don’t like us black folk so why should we align ourselves with them. Let them do commonwealth 2 for the white countries that they so wanted to do anyway!

    • Jan says:

      You could always be in my situation which is infinitely worse. In a country with a complete Cheeto colored racist jackass literally running the country into the ground.

      • Bohemian Angel says:

        @Jan Your situation may be worse in your eyes but believe me since the Brexit vote a lot of poc and Eastern Europeans/ Europeans have been suffering a lot of racism and Xenophobia. When you are born in a country and it’s all you know and your only sin is being of a different shade but your constantly asked ‘When are you going back to your own country, we voted brexit so you all need to go’ you suddenly realise you no longer belong or feel welcome in your country of birth, you now have a feeling of displacement, where do i belong? Certainly not in my parents’ Caribbean homeland, they see us as British. Also we have the Windrush scandal where a lot of people from the Caribbean were rounded up and sent ‘back home’ as according to the government they were not citizens of the UK despite them coming over in the 50s 60s on their parents passport and we’re told they had citizenship, unfortunately some of these people have died due to the stress of it all, all because the government (Teresa May’s hostile environment immigration policy). Im now planning a move to France despite Brexit as I have French ancestry and love the country and I am hoping I feel more welcome and at home there. I could go on about how much the UK has changed since Brexit but I’m sure you get the gist. You might be going through horrible things in your country but that doesn’t take away the horrible things people are going through here. It is not a competition.

  35. Sid says:

    Isn’t this writer the same one who said the success of Meghan’s SmartWorks project was because of Kate? This guy is just following the agenda. Trust and believe that there would be no stories about Will being worried for Harry or Kate drumming up support for Meghan if the public reaction to M&H’s documentary had been negative. There has been some criticism, but for the most part people are saying that the treatment of Meghan is disgusting. The letter from the female MPs was huge. So now KP is scrambling to put K&W in a better light in all this, even though a week ago we were told they were distancing themselves from the Sussexes. Clowns.

  36. L4frimaire says:

    Don’t see why the tabloids are dragging Kate into this and making it about her. She just does what she’s told so putting her at the center is trying to reduce this, once again, to a girl fight. No one asked or expects her to do anything. The onus is mostly on the tabloids with their lies and smears, but also the Royal family and their courtiers. They’re the ones showing zero support and leaking and whining that Meghan and Harry work too hard and might be too popular. This just, once again, makes whoever is leaking this, look clunky, unprofessional and straight up stupid. If this is from KP, they run a leaky ship and need to seriously calm down.

  37. ShazBot says:

    To me, this screams of Carole putting out something to make her daughter look like she has at least a little humanity. Anyone with eyes can see how bad this whole situation reflects on the Cambridges. But Kate is “all about family, and just wants everyone to get along”.

  38. DS9 says:

    I realized yesterday that there are people on Twitter who use the hashtag “CatherineTheGreat” for Katie Cambridge and I….

    I mean I realize that’s not the topic here but I needed to share because WTF? You should see these damned tweets.

    Even the most generous, realistic outlook on the woman doesn’t put her in the top ten greatest Catherine by any measure. She’s not even the top ten of Catherines married to men named William.

    • Becks1 says:

      Some of the hashtags the stans use for Kate are just embarrassing. CatherinetheGreat is one of those but there are some where I sort of do a double take because its like, “are we looking at the same person?”

      And that’s where I think those stans are doing Kate a disservice. She’s not the next great Catherine. And that’s okay in itself – but don’t keep building her because then you all just look silly.

      • HK9 says:

        A true ‘CatherinetheGreat’ would have come out of support of her sister in law years ago and put a stop to the nonsense. I like Kate and have followed her from the beginning, but some of these stans are really too much.

      • DS9 says:

        I saw a caption that said “behind every great man is a great woman” and I….

        You doing need to disparage either to agree that this ain’t it.

    • Guest2.0 says:

      But isn’t that putting Catherine above the Queen and the Firm by calling her CatherinetheGreat? Meghan is constantly told to sit down and know her place…don’t be so uppity. But Catherine can rise above everyone else with no complaints s?

  39. Alexandria says:

    I’ve decided that WK are just really dumb. They’re so dumb that they cannot see all these shenanigans don’t make them look good nor mature. Dumb people don’t know they’re dumb. Are you two okay? You can put out statements about hair extensions but for this you spread gossip that you’re reaching out and feeling sorry behind the scenes.

  40. kerwood says:

    It looks like SOME people are getting nervous about the support the Sussexes are getting and are trying to cover their often exposed asses. Keen Katie needs to be seen as the saviour of all mankind to make it harder for Normal Bill to toss her when a younger, more attractive rosebush catches his eye.

    So now Keen Katie, the woman who did nothing for almost ten years but chase after a man is the great White hope? Standards sure have dropped.

  41. Becks1 says:

    Its okay for Kate to feel sorry for Meghan. What is NOT okay is this narrative of Kate as the savior of the family, doing her best to bring everyone together, “not going to blame Meghan but…….” etc. It’s also disingenuous considering Kate has, at the very least, enabled and benefited from smear campaign against Meghan.

    What mistakes has Meghan made that she needs to learn from, that warrant this level of bullying in the press?

    And for the love of pete, the boastful comment was NOT a dig at Kate. She was saying it would be boastful to label herself as a force for change and to appear on the cover of the issue she was guest editing.

    But maybe she should have just shown up for the photo shoot, appeared on the cover, and done nothing else.

    Now THAT was a dig at Kate.

  42. Sofia says:

    And you certainly like selective reading! Meghan said it would be boastful for THIS PARTICULAR PROJECT.

    Meaning if she’s put herself on the cover she would be calling herself a force for change. And if Meghan called herself that it would be seen as arrogant

    Edit: sorry this was supposed to be a reply to @Peanuts

  43. Silas says:

    William is concerned for their fragile state and Kate feels sorry for Meghan but she’s very busy and will try to do what she can.

    Even their supporters can see the contempt there. These are really dumb approaches.

  44. BC says:

    I miss Diana. I miss her bravery, her fearless nature. She wouldve spoken out. Vehemently. Sure, she loved the attention from the press and the people, but she also had empathy, a deep sense of justice, a love for all people and a fearless nature when it came to pointing out atrocities. And she didnt care, consequences be damned. None of the women in the royal family hold a candle to her. Meghan reminds me of her work ethic and empathy in a way but is still far off. She is a force together with Harry though and I pray they will go far together and achieve even greater things. To be fair, no one can be Diana. Nor should they be. To hear that Kate is regarded as CatherineTheGreat is hilarious to me. Shes no where near doing half of what Diana did so i dont even know where they are going with that. All these to say, i miss a voice of reason in the BRF. I really do miss Diana.

  45. Green Desert says:

    This could all be completely made up, like anything where “sources” are quoted. But reading between the lines…both of these stories are super gross, if true. The part about not wanting to let the queen down so dealing with this in private? Gross. Brought this upon herself? Gross. What has Meghan done to deserve her treatment in the British press?

    There are some on here who always defend Kate, and I have a genuine question…why? What has she done over the years to earn a knee-jerk defense? I’m not saying she should be treated poorly, not at all. But we’ve seen how other stories about the Cambridges are shut down quickly. When stories like the ones Kaiser wrote about here trickle out, I have to wonder why. These stories only make them look good to the stuffy racist/classist establishment. Why appeal to those people? Oh wait, of course, we all know the reason. So I just don’t get the Cambridge defenders out there.

  46. lanne says:

    At this point, perhaps William and Kate should ditch mental health as a cause they champion. This is about as piss-poor a show of support for mental health as any I’ve ever seen!

  47. ghoulie says:

    Another day….

  48. February Pisces says:

    Kate is the most passive aggressive woman I’ve ever seen. She fires her assistant of 7 years after her honeymoon and blames it on Meghan. She gets The Sun to give her credit for smart works meanwhile “mean Meghan” is making poor wholesome kate cry whilst trying on wedding dresses. The Sussex’s struggle has been because of the Cambridge’s collisions with the press, yet Kate sweeps in to play the hero and save Meghan. I know it sounds petty, but I really can’t wait for the chickens to come home to roost for the Cambridge’s.

    • Bohemian Angel says:

      @FEBRUARY PISCES. This is so true. I really think Kate has NEVER liked Meghan despite their little PR outings.
      I think Kate is a better actress than Meghan tbh.

  49. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    Sure, she does. Sure, she is. *eyeroll*

  50. Jen says:

    Kate never has a moment to herself because of children and royal duties. Yeah, those few hours a week she works are such a bummer. I do think she’s a hands-on mom, but she has lots of help with everything! Plus 2 of the 3 are in school. Give me a break.

    Also, of course the women will continue to do the PR heavy lifting. They’re the two judged harshest and are married to petulant children.

    • ME says:

      She also doesn’t have to do laundry/cooking/cleaning nor does her husband. Lots of free time !

      And she doesn’t need to make any life decisions and stay mute for the rest of her life, her team takes care of everything.

  51. Marie says:

    Kate has never been known to be nice to other women. She bullied the York sisters and I heard she was horrible to Cressida. I think Kate would hate anyone that Harry dated. Add in the fact that Meghan is successful and Harry worships her, I’m sure Kate hates her.

    • February Pisces says:

      Yep, she doesn’t like any female. I don’t know who her close female friends are, I don’t think she has any. She never goes to williams friends weddings unless there’s a photo op with her children outside the church. I think she’s definitely an outsider amongst the aristo set now, they all know her marriage is a farce so there’s no need to make an effort with her. If Kate didn’t see Meghan as a threat and get all defensive, they could have been friends and supported each other. I think that’s Kate’s problem overall, she sees everyone as a threat. I also think she wants harry to fancy her just for validation, so it must kill her to see how crazy hot he is for Meghan.

      • February Pisces says:

        @demented I did like Kate until she and her husband started playing petty games with the press to bully and harass another person. Saint Kate is just an insecure woman who doesn’t know how to raise herself up, so she has to tear someone else down. Kate and her stans seem to hate any woman who dares to be attractive, confident and charismatic, because none of them posses those qualities themselves. It’s perfectly normal to feel insecure and jealous of other women, but I don’t think it’s ok to bring someone down just because you feel inadequate within yourself.

      • yinyang says:

        @February Pisces That’s how I’ve always seen Kate and no amount of PR and whitewashing can make me unsee that. She was overlyjealous over William too.

  52. Jackie says:

    Maybe she’ll tell Meghan to wear more outfits with buttons.

  53. Molly says:

    There is NOTHING and I mean NOTHING that Kate can teach Meghan…PERIOD! I’m getting tired of the British Media and people advancement of this narrative that Meghan is clueless and she needs Kate….she doesn’t! Women around the world have come to Meghan’s defense and given her support. This story on Kate is made up because KP sees the outreach to Meghan and want to make it all about Kate, as usual!

  54. spookie says:

    Another day and another example of people believing the rags when it suits them and disbelieving them when it doesn’t. The UK rags make up an awful lot of stuff you know – perhaps it is differnet in the US.

    • carmen says:

      It’s too bad that the drivel from these tabloids such as the Fail and the Sun have to form the basis for a post on this site. Why not reference something written in a reputable publication?

      • Becks1 says:

        People always say that, but clearly enough people take those rags seriously that the MPs wrote a letter of support for Meghan. And sometimes the stories DO run in “reputable” sources, and those are usually the ones that are more damning for W&K in my opinion. It just seems like people latch onto the fact that some of these are tabloids and so dismiss every story about the royals.

    • It isn’t different here in the States, my response is always “ask Jennifer Anniston and her 7 sets of twins.” My guess is that most of the “sources” are from the lady in the cubicle on the left, high placed sources come from the right cubicle and royal sources are clearly from water-cooler talk.

  55. yinyang says:

    Since when is In Touch reliable though? And if anyone should be reaching out it’s William, it’s not on Kate to fix William and Harry’s relationship.

  57. Emelia says:

    Kate should fix Kate

  58. Nic919 says:

    Has the story been pulled from either In Touch or DM? Because if it hasn’t then KP tacitly approves of the message. It’s not like William hasn’t set his lawyers on media articles he doesn’t like. Trying to wave it away by saying that tabloids make things up wears thin when false stories like botox and hair extensions get immediately corrected or human rights letters are sent, and yet still these saint Kate stories remain online.

  59. Nightsky says:

    Wow, the Royals’ posts sure are popular on this website!

    It feels like this “Cambridges pitying the Susexes” is becoming a bit of a theme now. First Wills says he feels sorry for them, now Kate. A tactical manuever to deflect any possible blame from coming back on them? And also, of course, to appear to be caring, concerned family members. Smart PR move, albeit a bit manipulative. Maybe even callous.

  60. Rogue says:

    I don’t believe most of these articles. Whilst there has clearly been some palace briefings against Meghan (too many reporters saying calls were coming inside the house& smears went on unchallenged), I think these commentators spin a lot to keep narratives going, to further an agenda& sell copy. Eg the Fail reporting that Kate said to Meghan learn from your mistakes&move on – those comments are so clearly from a Fail writer not Kate. The Balmoral trip where the Queen would put Meghan right was also fan fiction& then next minute was spun as Queen is upset with them& they weren’t invited to Balmoral.

    I think Meghan threatens the idea of white supremacy as she’s accomplished a lot in comparison so that’s why certain press didn’t need much incentive to tear her down,put her “in her place” and lift Kate up at Meghan’s expense. You can see that when they were publishing articles about how ‘Kate is worth more than Meghan’ & focusing on how Meghan would have to curtsy to her one day when Meghan first married in.

    I wouldn’t expect official statements of support for Meghan as its not really the BRF way& truthfully they’ve not known her that long. But they do know how to show support in other ways so fact they haven’t is telling.

    Minimum things the palaces could have done was to block racist commentators on their social media which they clearly have done when people have mentioned Rose& Andrew/Epstein allegations. As anti bullying campaigners KP could also have put out there through “sources” that they don’t condone staff giving cruel nicknames to Meghan.

  61. undergalaxy says:

    VF is trying to sell this whole thing as “discord in Meghan’s family” when it’s really damned obvious that it’s the House of Windsor that’s the root of the problem. You can easily ignore the half-siblings and Tom the Abuser – Meghan does I’m sure – but when the actual BRF is so OBVIOUSLY against Meghan… leave it to VF to twist it to show “the Americans” are the problem.

  62. Miriam says:

    Waity Kate is now SAINT kate who can ONLY do these PR stories & smile & tag Meghan at Wimbledon to watch her friend play to show her ”solidarity”!!🙄

  63. A says:

    I don’t doubt that there’s a kernel of truth here. Kate probably does feel bad for the way everything has gone down. But I don’t think she’s out here trying to mend fences. I think she’s mostly just reached out to Meghan on her own, quietly, asked her how she was once, and that’s it. There’s a huge gulf between reaching out and asking how someone is because you feel bad for them, and then actually offering constructive support that will help their situation. I don’t think Kate cares enough about Meghan to offer the latter, but she does feel bad enough that she wants to see how she’s doing.

  64. Green Desert says:

    Thanks for showing up @demented…we can count on you to defend those poor Cambridges regardless of the story. Keep fighting the good fight! Maybe take it to the Fail though next time, you can preach to members of your own choir.
