Kate Middleton and Prince Harry were very close in the past years, and according to a new book, the duchess even warned him about dating Meghan Markle.
Kate Middleton and Prince William had a long courtship. When the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were still dating, she also developed a close bond with Prince Harry. Meghan Markle’s husband considered Middleton the sister he never had.
Kate Middleton warned Prince Harry about Meghan Markle
A new book by investigative journalists Dylan Howard and Andy Tillett entitled Royals At War discussed the rumored feud among the royals. The authors claimed that Middleton gave his brother-in-law a stern warning about dating the former actress.
“She gently reminded him that he was dating someone with a completely different life, past, and career and it would take time, care and attention for them to integrate,” the duo wrote, as quoted by Daily Mail.
Middleton was not the only royal to warn Prince Harry. The book claimed that the warnings the Duke of Sussex received convinced him the people in the palace were not supportive of him and Markle.
Prince Harry became overprotective of Meghan
Since Prince Harry felt that the royals were not supportive, he became overprotective of Markle. Another source claimed that he did it because he failed to protect his mom, Princess Diana.
It’s not a secret that the media love to talk about his wife. Prince Harry didn’t want her to end up like her mom. Princess Diana died in a car crash while a paparazzi was chasing her car.
Thus, Prince Harry was reportedly going all out when it comes to his wife. However, some felt that there were times when he goes overboard.
“He is so sensitive he often sees criticism or negativity where there isn’t any,” a source told Howard and Tillett.
Howard and Tillett believed that if Prince Harry didn’t misinterpret Prince William’s concerns about him, there would be no falling out.
“The rifts that eventually opened up in the Royal family after Meghan arrived could have been avoided if Harry was able to empathise and take his brother’s concerns in the spirit they were intended,” the authors concluded.
Prince William and Prince Harry allegedly had a falling out after the former advised the latter to slow down his romance with Markle. Prince Harry felt that his sibling wasn’t supportive.
“He accused his brother of trying to finish his romance before it had begun. The brothers’ relationship has not really recovered,” a source told The Sun.
However, according to Katie Nicholl, Prince William and Prince Harry are already on speaking terms.
