While Prince Harry and Prince William managed to have a conversation following the Duke of Sussex and Meghan Markle's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, a source revealed the same can't be said for their wives.
An insider exclusively told The Royal Observer that Meghan and Kate Middleton have had zero contact since the shocking CBS tell-all on Sunday, March 7 — during which Meghan discussed a previous incident between the Duchesses that resulted in tears.
“Kate’s biggest fear is the Meghan will reveal the contents of anything she says. There is no trust after what Meghan did," The Royal Observer source said. "It is clear that Meghan shares private conversations with reporters and TV personalities, which makes it very hard to move forward.
"Kate would pick up the phone in a second if she thought it would help," the source continued, "but having another private call leaked to the press isn’t going to help anyone."
“Kate wants peace, but you cannot blame her for being guarded and reluctant,” added a Royal Observer insider. “Meghan is a big red flag. How do you make friends with someone that you cannot trust? Meghan has done a tell-all before and will do it again. There are real concerns about her repeating anything she says to her friends in the media.”
The next opportunity for Kate and Meghan to reconcile is when they see each other face-to-face on July 1 in London for the unveiling of a statue of their late mother-in-law, Princess Diana. However, Harry and Meghan are expected to welcome their second child, a baby girl, over the summer, so they may not be in attendance.
While Harry finally had a conversation with his older brother following the interview, Gayle King reported that the brothers' talk was "unproductive" — and she said the same of Harry's talk with dad Prince Charles.
"No one in the royal family has talked to Meghan yet at this particular time and I think it's frustrating for them to see that it's a racial conversation about the royal family when all they wanted all along was for the royals to intervene and tell the press to stop with the unfair, inaccurate false stories that definitely have a racial slant," King said on the March 16 episode of her CBS This Morning show.
On the other hand, it looks like Kate and Meghan won't be working on their turbulent relationship anytime soon, especially after Meghan brought up a disagreement between herself and the mother-of-three over the flower girl dresses ahead of the Suits alum and Harry's 2018 wedding.
While speaking with the talk show titan earlier this month, Meghan opened up about the reports stating she made Kate cry over their altercation — and claimed they were false. "The reverse happened," the actress told Oprah, alleging Kate was the one who made her cry.
“She didn’t like that she was called out by name when many of the other members of the royal family were not,” another source said of Kate's reaction to Meghan's statement. “Kate also did not like the implications that she and other members of the royal family were jealous of Meghan, that was never the case.”
