If anything is bound to bring all the royals together, a well-planned and lavish party should do the trick! Following a busy few weeks of jet-setting around the world, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expected to join Prince William and Kate Middleton for a royal bash hosted by Queen Elizabeth for Prince Charles.
Despite their alleged feud, Meg and Kate, both 37, will be in attendance as the royal family celebrates the 50th anniversary of Charles’ investiture as the Prince of Wales and his half-century of service to the United Kingdom. Being held at Buckingham Palace on March 5, the guest list also includes Charle’s sister, Princess Anne, and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
The reunion at Charles’ extravaganza will be the first time that Meg, Harry, 34, William, 36, and Kate make their first public appearance together since December 2018. In November, a source dished to Us Weekly that any rumors of bad blood between the two duchesses have been highly exaggerated. “The ‘feud’ is definitely being played up,” the insider insisted to the outlet. “Are they the best of friends? No. Do they speak every waking second? No. Do they hate each other? Absolutely not.”
However, the source added that the Suits alum and Kate do still have plenty in common. “They are two women under serious amounts of pressure, stress and under a huge spotlight that no one can relate to — they will always have a bond that no one can break.” Also, it seems the two royals apparently cleared up any grievances they may have had during the queen’s Sandringham Christmas party. “Kate opened up about feeling like Meghan had used her to climb the royal ladder,” the source said, adding that the former actress expressed that she feels snubbed by Kate. “Being under the same roof meant that they couldn’t avoid each other.”
Luckily for Meghan, Kate has been super supportive of her as she nears the end of her pregnancy. According to Us, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been giving the royal parents-to-be plenty of parenting advice as they get ready to welcome their first child this spring. “Having been through it a few times, their ‘tricks of the trade’ have definitely been appreciated,” the insider said of Kate and William’s three kids, Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, 10 months. “Harry and Meghan are totally open to all help and advice!” We bet Kate and William will be the best aunt and uncle to Baby Sussex!
