As the duke and duchess of Sussex stepped down from their senior royal posts last year, the relationship between the couples completely crumbled.
Kate Middleton is doing her best to mend ties with Meghan Markle following Lilibet Diana’s birth and sending her sister-in-law presents and cards, an anonymous insider told the US Weekly.
Kate publicly said in early June that she “can’t wait to meet” the new addition to the royal family.
“Kate has been reaching out to Meghan a lot more since [Lilibet] was born, she’s sending [notes and] gifts and trying to build up a relationship,” the source said.
“The firm has been instructing staffers to reach out more to Harry and Meghan to get them to soften a bit.”
Relations between the Sussexes and Cambridges reportedly took a dive during Meghan Markle’s stint in Buckingham Palace, but they plunged even further after Prince Harry and his wife announced in January 2020 that they were stepping down from their senior royal posts to pursue “financially independent” lives.
The split wasn’t amicable and the couple has made this clear during several interviews with American media.
As such, Harry and Meghan publicly accused “the Firm” of disregarding their mental health issues, while the duke also claimed his father Prince Charles, and brother William are “trapped” in the institution.
