Meghan Markle’s Two Imperatives for Healing with Prince William and Kate Middleton, Unveiled by an Expert

Since departing royal life in January 2020, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have navigated a strained relationship with the royal family. Settling in Montecito, California, they’ve forged a markedly different existence from their former royal duties, focusing on raising their children, Lilibet and Archie.

Their departure from the UK was swiftly followed by public statements. Their much-discussed Oprah interview, subsequent Netflix series, and Harry’s book, “Spare,” thrust them into the global spotlight, as they levied various accusations against royal family members. These revelations laid the groundwork for the current state of relations between the Sussexes and the royals.

Meghan has made only a few visits to the UK since her departure with Harry, but there’s speculation she may return in May, potentially heralding a chance for reconciliation between the couples. However, a royal expert suggests that any reconciliation may hinge on Meghan’s two conditions, one of which is reportedly a “groveling apology.”

The rift deepened as Harry and Meghan engaged in a public dispute with the royal family, with Prince William and Kate Middleton finding themselves at the forefront. From the Oprah interview to Harry’s book and beyond, tensions escalated.

Prince William and Kate Middleton found themselves depicted in Harry’s book, where he detailed his struggles within the royal framework as the “spare.” Despite the public back-and-forth, William chose not to engage directly, expressing a willingness to mend fences only with a sincere apology from his brother, according to Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine.

“William would be upset that Harry yet again has chosen to make this visit to see his father a PR opportunity,” she remarked to The Sun. “As far as William is concerned, he has absolutely no interest in speaking to Harry until Harry behaves like a gentleman and apologizes for the years of rudeness and slurs he has aimed at William and the Princess of Wales.”

The private turmoil within the royal family underscores William’s disappointment at Harry’s priorities during a critical time for their family, with both their father and stepmother facing potential health concerns.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle both attended Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, but the Duchess did not accompany her husband to King Charles’ coronation last year.

Reports suggest that Meghan harbors no guilt regarding Kate Middleton. Nevertheless, Harry attended the coronation ceremony at Westminster Abbey but swiftly returned to the US, a move reportedly met with relief by the royals.

King Charles appears eager for his sons to reconcile, not only for his own sake but also for the monarchy’s future. Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle were once viewed as integral to the monarchy’s future alongside their spouses, but their relationship soured.

Is reconciliation feasible? Royal expert Tom Quinn believes it’s unlikely. Speaking to the Mirror, Quinn asserted that Meghan felt unsupported by Kate during her time as a working royal. Conversely, he claims, Kate believed they should have bonded as fellow “outsiders” marrying into the royal family.

“Meghan doesn’t feel guilty about Kate because she expected Kate to support her against every difficulty,” Quinn explained. “Meghan knew Kate was an outsider, so she couldn’t understand why Kate always adhered to royal protocol rather than supporting her, another outsider.”

Despite their strained relationship, Harry and Meghan extended their well wishes to Kate Middleton after her surgery. However, reports suggest they learned about Kate’s battle with cancer through the media.

Some suggest that Kate Middleton’s health crisis might serve as a catalyst for reconciliation with Meghan Markle. However, Quinn contends that their relationship has become too toxic to mend.

“Kate’s cancer diagnosis has deeply affected Meghan, but she sees no feasible path to repairing their relationship due to its toxicity,” he remarked. “Furthermore, Meghan is wary of any attempt to reconcile being perceived as opportunistic, as she still believes Kate owes her an apology before they can move forward.”

As for Prince Harry and Meghan’s potential return to the UK, Harry briefly visited after King Charles’ cancer diagnosis, reportedly meeting with him at Sandringham, although Prince William did not attend. With tensions between the brothers running high and William’s reluctance to accept Harry’s assistance with royal engagements, reconciliation seems unlikely.

However, the Sussexes could soon find themselves back in the UK, albeit for a different reason. On May 8th, the anniversary of the Invictus Games will be commemorated, with a service at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. Prince Harry, the founder of the Invictus Games, is expected to attend, and according to Express, Meghan is listed as a guest for the event.

According to sources cited by the tabloid, both Harry and Meghan are listed as guests for the Invictus Games anniversary event, with a speech scheduled, though Meghan’s attendance remains uncertain, indicated by her name being penciled in as “to be confirmed” (TBC).

Despite the strained relationships between Harry and Meghan and William and Kate, surprisingly, it’s suggested by Tom Quinn that Prince Charles and Princess Diana are attempting to facilitate reconciliation.

Quinn mentioned in an interview with the Mirror that Prince William and Kate Middleton proposed the idea of Harry and Meghan bringing their children to the Invictus Games event as a way to mend fences.

“William and Kate have suggested that Meghan and Harry bring the children and that the two couples and their families try to make up, but the suggestion is not leading anywhere so far,” Quinn explained.

However, Meghan’s current stance, as per Express, indicates a change of heart, driven by concerns for her children’s safety in the UK.

According to a source quoted in OK! Magazine, while Meghan initially considered going to the UK with Harry in May, she’s now hesitant to bring Archie and Lilibet due to safety concerns.

“It’s now got to the point where Meghan doesn’t want to come to the UK with the children. She just doesn’t feel safe. The situation is now about whether the family should attend with increased security or Harry should go it alone,” the source stated.

Despite Harry’s plea for Meghan to reconsider, expressing a desire not to make solo trips, logistical and security challenges seem to hinder the possibility of the entire family visiting the UK regularly to build bridges.

It seems that Harry and Meghan were initially planning to visit the UK, but once the details of their appearance became public, Meghan began to reconsider. Safety concerns for their children aside, Meghan is wary of facing anxiety and feeling unwelcome during a visit to England.

Meanwhile, Harry finds himself torn between supporting his wife and maintaining his relationship with his sister-in-law, Kate Middleton. The rift between Harry and Prince William has deepened, with William reportedly furious at Harry for revealing family secrets in his book, especially involving Kate.

Tom Quinn suggests that two key demands prevent reconciliation between the couples, with Meghan insisting on a groveling apology from the royal family before considering any resolution. Quinn also indicates that Meghan is hindering peace talks, despite a perceived shift in attitude following Kate’s illness.

Despite suggestions from William and Kate to bring the children and attempt reconciliation, Quinn remarks that the suggestion hasn’t progressed. With no indication of Meghan bringing her children to the UK and lingering grievances on both sides, the prospect of reconciliation remains uncertain.

Whether Harry and Meghan can reconcile with Prince William and Kate Middleton is uncertain, given the complexities of their grievances and the apparent reluctance to extend olive branches. It seems the road to reconciliation is fraught with obstacles, and only time will tell if they can overcome them.
