Earlier today, we reported that this is the 10th wedding anniversary of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Now, some reports are coming in about who congratulated them today that may surprise you.
Entertainment Tonight has reportedly confirmed that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry privately congratulated William and Kate on their anniversary. This is somewhat surprising, given the fact that there is said to be a rift between the two couples in the wake of Meghan and Harry’s explosive tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey last month.
Royal expert Katie Nicholl had previously said that Kate acted as “peacemaker” between William and Harry when they were reunited earlier this month for the funeral of their grandfather, Prince Philip. Meghan could not attend because she is about six months pregnant with her second child, and doctors advised her that traveling across the world would not be a good idea at this time.
“It’s always been my understanding that behind the scenes, Kate has tried very hard to forge a rapprochement and act as a peacemaker between William and Harry,” Nicholl said. “She loves Harry. She says that she is the sister that he never had. She has been heartbroken to see them fall out, and I think she is one of the few people, one of the few family members who would actually be able to push the brothers together, which she did in a very subtle way, but was very effective.”
“So much has happened,” Nicholl explained. “There is so much hurt on either side.”
“The idea that Harry’s suddenly going to come around to William’s way of thinking, and vice versa, I think is a way off,” she continued. “I think there do need to be more conversations, there’s clearly still a lot of hurt, a lot of resentment, and a degree of mistrust on both parts. It’s early days, but I think the hope is that come July — when we are hoping to see the brothers stand once again shoulder by shoulder to unveil the statue in memory of their mother [Princess Diana] — that the relationship will be stronger and in a better place.”
