Royal family bonding! Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are already good friends but, according to a new report, the Duchesses will become even closer in the coming months now that Meghan is pregnant with her first child.
“Meghan will lean on Kate for help and advice because they’re women of a very similar age and I believe they are quite close as it is,” royal expert Jennie Bond recently told the UK’s New! magazine.
“Destiny has thrown them together in very unusual circumstances and they are learning they have to be very careful who they confide in and be careful when it comes to picking friends. They’re tailor-made for one another — and they appear to like each other very much,” Bond continued.
Now that Meghan, 37, and Prince Harry, 34, are finally moving next door to Kate, 36, and Prince William, also 36, inside London’s Kensington Palace, the foursome’s relationship will likely grow even stronger as they spend even more time together.
“Meghan doesn’t have any of her own family over here, so more than most she’ll lean on her new family and new friends — so how ideal that they’re moving into the apartment next door to William and Kate,” Bond noted. “I think there might even be an interlinking door between the apartments — it’ll be lovely for the children. Prince Louis will only be a year older than the new baby, so there are ready-made playmates next door!”
And now that Kate’s younger sister, Pippa Middleton, 35, and her husband, James Matthews, 43, also just welcomed a new baby boy, Bond predicted that Pippa will be visiting Kensington Palace quite often, too.
“I can imagine Pippa would be a regular visitor to Kate’s, so I’m sure they will start to hang out more together, especially as they’re all having kids around the same age,” the royal expert noted.
According to Bond, Harry couldn’t be happier with his life today and is ecstatic about starting a family with his wife, Meghan. “He’s always said so publicly what he wants and that’s a family of his own. Not many [members] of the royal family are so open about their emotions, feelings, and hopes. He always wanted children as soon as possible — he’s got everything he’s ever wanted,” she said.
