Gossip about the Royal Family is no longer a new topic. There has been gossip surrounding the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The scandal involves different issues, such as marital status and familial problems. Although most of the gossip was debunked, what we do not understand now is how the press is being extremely silent or uninvolved about the couple. This lack of news is strange because any story about the Royal Family is such a hot topic, whether real or not. The silence of the press is deafening, which makes us think that something is happening.
All Eyes On Them
The Royal Family is one of the most famous in the world, and it’s not easy to be a member of a family that’s always in the center of attention. All eyes on whatever you do, and you still have to show your best manners, especially in public, or else the media and the public will surely make a story out of it. However, acting proper was not always the case with the members of the Royal Family.
Not What It Seems
News about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William, and Kate Middleton, of having a perfect relationship is common knowledge. They are also portrayed as grateful to be together and to have the ideal relationship that everybody seeks. In the eyes of the people, they were indeed in love with each other, until such time that they were rumored that they are just faking it in front of the public and having a serious marital problem.
Her Husband And Best Friend
Prince William was rumored to be involved in such a disgraceful act. Kate Middleton has a best friend named Rose Hanbury. Rumor has it that Prince William and Rose Hanbury were having an affair. Can you imagine Kate Middleton’s reaction regarding these circulating rumors?
Even More Serious
Prince Harry was not an ordinary person that you can just accuse of some serious cheating with his wife. He was a part of the Royal family. This kind of rumor was not to be taken lightly, considering that it involves the reputation of the Royal family. This type of activity has a severe equivalent of consequence.
Downhill From There
The rumor inevitably affects the relationship between Kate Middleton and Rose Hanbury. They used to be the best of friends. Due to the stories that Prince Harry and Rose Hanbury were involved with, it also affects the relationship between their families.
The Rumor Mill
People all over the internet had their thoughts on the matter when the rumor started to spread. It is like a wildfire! Prince Harry and Rose Hanbury became a hot topic on different platforms of social media. People were crazy about knowing the truth behind the photos that were spreading online. Netizens thought that the picture has a special message left behind by Kate Middleton to her best friend.
A Brotherly Feud
Prince Harry and Prince William have not been getting along pretty well, and one of the reasons is the widespread rumor about Prince Harry and Rose Harbury. Prince Harry allegedly confided by his brother, Prince William, about the issue that is going on around as posted by a reporter on Twitter. Not only the two girls are affected by the rumors, but also the Prince brothers.
Kate Middleton surprised many of us when severed ties with Rose Harbury and her husband, David Cholmondeley. She was devastated as if the rumors about her husband’s infidelity and best friend were true. How Kate behaved is just the beginning of Kate Middleton’s action.
Looking For The Press
The British press remains silent about the ongoing issue about the Royal family. People worldwide and different social media platforms have already shared their thoughts about the pressing question, and there must be something fishy going on about the British press.
The most puzzling thing that the British press has done so far is that they have remained silent in this kind of issue. They were known to be very aggressive when it comes to a hot story that they knew the public would be very interested in, and would not stop until they got what they came for. And because of this, many assumptions have been made by the public.
There was a time when Prince William and Kate Middleton won a case that they filed against one of the British press for publishing specific photos of Kate Middleton. One of the people’s assumptions is that the British media avoided a lawsuit that the couple might file against them.
Breach Of Privacy
And since no one knows if the rumors were true, the statement made by the lawyers of the Royal family made things difficult for the British press to make a move. In the letter, it states that “In addition to being false and highly damaging, the publication of false speculation in respect of our clients’ private life also constitutes a breach of his privacy according to Article 8 of the European Convention to Human Rights.”.
Avoiding Angering Him
It seems pretty evident that the British press does not want to get on the wrong side of the future King. They are holding back on making the rumor more controversial to avoid angering Prince William. Nevertheless, the opinion of the Queen is one the public were anticipating the most.
A New Title
When Prince William and Kate Middleton celebrated their eighth wedding anniversary, Kate Middleton was granted the title of the Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order by Queen Elizabeth. This was when the rumors started going out. It seems to me that the Queen’s decision was not influenced by the said rumors.
Queen Elizabeth giving Kate Middleton a title was a pure stunt, according to some netizens. This is one way to distract the public from the rumors, as mentioned above, that Prince William and Kate Middleton are currently involved in. This kind of stunt was proven effective to distract the public from the current issues.
Arrival Of Archie
When the son of the couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was born, it became a media sensation, and it received a lot of attention from the media and the public. The baby’s name was Archie. Another addition to the royal family. It became so popular that the rumors between Prince William and Kate Middleton were instantly forgotten.
Feud Between The Ladies
There had been some stories that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle were allegedly not on good terms. This has been covered by the press that there might be some misunderstanding between the two duchesses. Let us all find out the truth in this story.
Until they married into the royal family, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle were just ordinary citizens. It is rumored that Kate Middleton does not consider Meghan Markle with the same status as her. Middleton graduated with a degree in art history from St. Andrews, and she now has an official portrait in the National Portrait Museum. Before getting her big break on the Television series “Suits,” Markle worked a variety of odd jobs, but as a royal, she had a crew of her own. You might not notice it from the photos when they are together, but most people assume that they have some feud.
Let us go back to the infidelity issue of Prince William since they have no concrete evidence that Prince William and Rose Hanbury were indeed having an affair. It seems that Kate Middleton and Rose Hanbury just let it pass. For the case of the Royal family, no one can honestly imagine how they handle the scandal.
Covering It Up
The alleged affair between Prince William and Rose Hanbury did not get much attention from the British press even though it caused a lot of trouble for the royal family. However, the alleged beef between Prince William and Prince Harry is one of the things that the royal family decided to be more secretive, especially in front of the press.
The British press and the people focused more on Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle as soon as they joined their respective husbands in the royal family. Since joining the royal family, they were alleged to have an air of tension between them and that they have a feud with each other.
The Root Of The Problem
For the longest time, this story was always reported by the British press. They hypothesized that the source of the tension between the two duchesses was their husbands, Prince William and Prince Harry when they dug deeper to find out what was truly going on between Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.
Prince Harry and Prince William were known publicly to be very close to each other. It is hard to imagine something wrong going on between them, even though they were very different and took different paths. Is there a feud between the brothers of the royal family?
Diversion From Tradition
The fact that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle strayed from tradition was what managed to make the public suspect that there was something wrong. This just literally means that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to leave behind the rest of the royal family.
Meghan had to adapt to the royal lifestyle. There would be imperial veterans that would assist her when she needs help. As it is not easy to be accustomed to the royal ways, she and Harry lived in Kensington Palace when they got married. They spent their first year in Kensington Palace.
The newlywed couple lived close to Princess Eugenie and the Duke and Duchess of Kent. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate were living in their 21-room apartment, which was across Harry and Meghan. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle lived in the Nottingham Cottage while starting their married life.
The couple did not intend to live at Nott Cott for too long. As they are preparing for Archie’s birth, Harry and Meghan decided they wanted to move to a more spacious and open place. Before they welcomed their son into their lives, they moved to Frogmore Cottage at Windsor, where they think the living conditions are better.
Nott Cott was more of a bachelor pad rather than a place to raise a family. Their home was a two-bedroom house that Harry lived in before he married Meghan. Unlike Frogmore Cottage, which offers a secluded, peaceful, tranquil, and, most importantly, private living conditions.
It seemed like the tension in the royal family did not disappear. It was said that when the couple started going out, the royal family gave Harry warnings about her chosen partner. Even if the couple seemed happily married and starting to build a life of their own, there is still a misunderstanding between Harry and the royals.
While they were still going out, Meghan met Prince Harry’s brother in Kensington Palace. After meeting Meghan for the first time, Prince William gave unsolicited advice to Prince Harry, which started the misunderstanding between the two brothers.
The older brother expressed his concern that things are going very fast for the couple. Prince Harry and Meghan seemed totally into each other, and by the looks of it, the couple will decide to build their own life as husband and wife. Prince William told his younger brother to think things through before making the next move.
As the older brother, Prince William, felt that the advice is not uncalled for. It was probably because their situation is almost alike, especially when they got romantically involved with commoners. “William told his brother they knew nothing about her background, intentions, and what she was really like,” a source shared. Prince William tried to be as fact-based as possible, but Prince Harry felt that he was offended by what his older brother said to him.
A Massive Undertaking
The source explained, “He just wanted to stress that becoming part of the Royal Family is a massive undertaking, and the pressure and scrutiny are [sic] unrelenting. Was Meghan the right one?” Marrying into another family is not a piece of cake, and much more so is marrying into the royal family.
Prince Harry did not take these words lightly. He felt as if Meghan was judged wrongly, and he just wanted to stand up for her. Meghan is going through a lot as well. She has issues like her own family, the media, and the public, which she is trying to deal with accordingly. Prince Harry was offended by what Prince William told him.
Samantha Markle, Meghan’s half-sister and their father Thomas, said that Meghan’s behavior is why the public does not like Meghan. This revelation was such a shock as this was Meghan’s own family throwing bad things at her and blaming her for what she is experiencing.
People have been speculating that these may have something to do about her race. Meghan was born as an American, but her mother is African American. While for the royal family, they may have felt that Meghan is not genuine to them.
A United Front
Prince Harry and Meghan have shown the public and the royal family that they are supporting each other. The couple always presents a united front, and they always appear happy whenever they are seen together and seem like they are still very much in love with each other.
“He will brook no criticism of Meghan,” shared by one source. “And he is so sensitive he often sees criticism or negativity where there isn’t any.” On the other side, there were a few sources who blamed Prince Harry. He would entertain malicious comments, and this will go out of proportion.
Another opinion is how Prince Harry is protecting Meghan because he was not able to defend his mother. “It’s my opinion that Harry feels he couldn’t protect his mother, so he’s going all out to protect his wife,” a different theory, as stated by another source. It seems like Prince Harry feels that it’s something that he must do and maybe because Meghan is experiencing the same scrutiny.
There is another speculation of how the arguments started amongst the Fab Four. It was speculated that this began when the Queen appointed Prince Harry as the Youth Ambassador to the Commonwealth. Prince William could have vetoed this appointment, but he did not do anything. According to sources, William was hurt because the Queen chose his younger brother instead of him.
There are still supporters who believe that the drama was stirred up when there should not be anything. The rumors were verified when, during one interview, someone asked if the Fab Four ever have disagreements, William was quick to answer, “Oh yes.” This was the answer that everyone was waiting to hear.
The next question was directed to Prince Harry. He was asked how the fights were resolved, the four of them laughed nervously. Prince Harry’s joking reply was, “We don’t know.” It was evident that there was tension, but he tried to mask it by replying in a very comfortable manner.
Looking For An Ally
When Meghan Markle became a member of the royal family, she hoped she would find a friend in her new sister-in-law. Given the fact that Meghan and Kate had a similar background and Meghan thought they would have each other back. However, they had a complex interaction with each other.
Kate Middleton was very busy with her duties and responsibilities as the Duchess of Cambridge. She had to take care of her children, and she was even pregnant with Louis during that time, so she does not have the luxury of time to look out for Meghan anymore. Kate had no idea that Meghan needed her help, and therefore, Meghan thought that Kate was not very supportive of her.
Kate and Meghan are now two of the most prominent members of the royal family, even though they come from an average family and do not possess royal blood. Do the two duchesses have tension between them? What was their relationship with each other?
Same But Different
It was on Christmas Day of 2017 when Kate and Meghan were officially introduced. They have come a long way from their previous status in life. Though Kate and Meghan come from the same standard situation, they each had their path on becoming part of the royal family.
In the British County of Berkshire, Kate Middleton studied art history in Scotland at the University of St. Andrews, where she got to know Prince William in 2001. Kate was born at the village of Chapel Row, part of Bucklebury, near Newbury. Kate was not born with royal blood, but because of the large party supply business of her parents, she grew up with a comfortable lifestyle.
Tying The Knot
Prince Harry and Kate decided to marry each other in 2010 after dating for a long time since they met back in 2001. And in 2011, the wedding between them happened and was called “The Wedding of the Century.” After that, she was given the title Duchess of Cambridge. Meghan, though not with Prince Harry, was also married during that year. What a turn of events.
Her First Husband
Meghan Markle was first married to Trevor Engelson. Trevor Engelson was an actor-producer who she met when she was still a fresh talent in Hollywood. Their marriage did not go as planned. After two years of being married, they decided to end their relationship, although Meghan’s career was starting to work out for her, but not her personal life.
Meghan’s career started to take off when she was cast as Rachel Zane in an American legal drama titled Suits. She became very popular with the role. But before she started to become famous, she was only offered minimal acting roles or odd jobs on the television. One notable example is becoming one of the suitcase girls on a show called Deal or No Deal.
Their Blind Date
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle met for the first time when a common friend set them up on a blind date back in 2016. For Meghan Markle, her career finally took off, not only that but also her personal life. Meeting with Prince Harry contributes a lot to this significant improvement with her own life.
Meghan was invited to attend her future sister-in-law’s 35th birthday party. As a present, she gave a dream journal to the birthday celebrant. We believe she gave the members of the Royal Family a perfect first impression.
Kate and Meghan got to know each other more soon enough. In 2018 the world stared with admiration at the glamorous union of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. This was thrilling because a mixed international race eventually joined the Windsor family.
After the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan, Meghan has become a royal just like her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton. However, it is reported from an insider that Kate and Meghan had met in a not very excellent encounter for the first time. This makes the people wonder if the two duchesses do not get along well.
She Was Stressed
Many would blame Kate Middleton for not having Meghan Markle felt very welcome to the royal family, but what they do not know is that Kate Middleton has a lot of things to go through. Kate was pregnant during that time. She has to go through her third pregnancy. Not to mention all the criticism she has to go through daily by the press and the public.
Helping Each Other
Meghan gave Kate advice on her diet during her pregnancy days, which helped improve the overall health of Kate. Meghan surely did a great job assisting Kate with what she is going through at that time. Not too long, Kate also returned the favor.
Returning The Favor
Being part of the royal family, one must abide by its rules. Kate returned the favor to Meghan by mentoring her with the ways on how a member of the royal family must behave since Meghan is still adjusting from her Hollywood life. One of the things that Kate taught to Meghan is the proper clothes and protocols during an event.
Then, it looked like the duchesses had changed. They spend time with each other whenever their schedules allow. Some time ago, they also participated in Wimbledon. The women exchanged comments and jokes as the match progressed.
Personal And Professional
Their relationship progressed personally, and now they are very close to each other. Kate would not stop there. She even invited Meghan to join the Royal Foundation Forum. It is a charitable foundation launched by both of their husbands. They also got closer to each other on a professional level.
A Big Step
One insider that claims to be close with the royal family said, “She admires how Kate has carved out her own space when it comes to humanitarian work alongside being an amazing mother,” about Meghan. Meghan appreciates what Kate does.
Back in 2018, Kate celebrated the most when she heard the news that Meghan had announced that she was pregnant. She was excited for Meghan to experience the joy of being a mother and start her journey of motherhood. However, Kate did not expect that something was meant to change along the way.
Leaving Kensington Palace
Prince Harry and Meghan decided to leave Kensington Palace and move to Frogmore Cottage months before their son, Archie, was born. This was their plan all along. Living in Frogmore Cottage means that they would be far away from the rest of the royal family.
Since they live far away with each other now that they moved to Frogmore Cottage, not like before when they are still living in Kensington Palace, the two duchess seldom see each other now. But we surely know that they do not bother the distance and always try their best to remain close to each other, especially their kids.
Even when times are hard for them sometimes and even if they collide from time to time, they need to know that they can help one another better. After all, now they are part of the royal family. They need all the support they can give.
Finding Out For Herself
Being part of the royal family is hard. It seems that you are always in the spotlight. All eyes on whatever you say and do. One must be careful, especially from the press and public places. Meghan experienced those things when she decided to have a relationship with Prince Harry.
Before Meghan met Prince Harry, she did not have many ideas about the Prince and the royal family. Their first encounter is a romantic type on so many levels. They first met through a blind date set by their mutual friends.
They Were Unprepared
It is funny how they have no idea with each other before their first encounter. Prince Harry does not know who the actress was. He has not even heard the name of the actress before. In Meghan’s case, she shared with BBC, “I didn’t know much about him,” she continued with, “so the only thing I asked… was, ‘Well, is he nice?'”.
A Blooming Relationship
Their first blind date surely had a positive result. After a couple of weeks of their first encounter, Prince Harry decided to invite her to accompany him to an African charity trip. Prince Harry said, “It was crucial to me to make sure that we had a chance to get to know each other.”.
They maintained their relationship under the radar for several months until a piece of news about their relationship spread back in October 2016. Harry wants a quiet relationship, away from all unwanted attention. Some sources even said that Prince Harry had “been desperate to keep the relationship quiet.”.
On the day that the news about their relationship entered the headlines, she even posted a fascinating photo on her Instagram page. It was one of two embracing bananas. Perhaps she verified that this news was valid.
How the tabloid treated, Meghan was very offensive that it felt almost an attack to her. Being a celebrity, she is already used to gossip and tabloid news, but this was an entirely different culture. The level of offense and intrusion is on a different level.
Meghan said during an interview with BBC, “There was a misconception that this would be something I would be familiar with,” she also said that, “But I’ve never been part of tabloid culture. I’ve lived a relatively quiet life.”.
Enough Was Enough
The press was relentless. They were desperate to get the latest scoop about Harry and Meghan. Some of them even harassed Meghan’s mother to get more information! The Prince thought that enough was enough.
Stop The Harassment
Prince Harry made a statement using the Royal House issue. He asked members of the press to stop harassing Meghan. The letter read, “Prince Harry is worried about the safety of Ms. Markle. It is not right that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm.
A New Story
It worked a little to lessen the media frenzy. However, this story was overlooked when the news came out that Prince William was said to have been unhappy. This made the older Prince released a statement, too!
A part of the statement released by William reads: “The Duke of Cambridge understands the situation concerning privacy and supports the need for Prince Harry to support those closest to him.”
It Was Fine
We can’t ignore the fact that not many royals have done what Harry did to the press. But the other royals did not see this as a problem. They understand that he was just trying to defend Meghan.
Her Royal Approval
As 2016 was about to end, almost everyone had forgotten about the pressing issue that Harry had committed. People were now starting to talk about the Queen’s approval of Meghan!
A Big Fan
The Queen is not just the monarch of the United Kingdom but is also one of Prince Harry’s biggest fans. A source told reporters, “[The Queen is] delighted to see Harry in a loving relationship.”
A Mutual Feeling
It turned out that Meghan also had the same sentiment! When the BBC talked to her about Her Majesty, she said, “It’s incredible to meet her through [Harry’s] lens
Spending The Holidays
Harry and Meghan were unable to spend Christmas with each other in 2016. Luckily, they came together to spend the New Year together. The truth was out so that they could go to Norway without worry.
The pair must have had an extraordinary trip when they went to the Arctic Circle. They even got to see the Northern Lights! Around the same time, some of their loved ones made statements that a wedding is going to happen soon.
Even though Harry and Meghan had not yet released any announcements, their friends were sure of it. One friend of Harry informed US Weekly, “I can see them engaged in the spring.” He added,” He’s head over heels
After their trip to Norway, Harry started taking Meghan to family events more often. At the beginning of 2017, he introduced his partner to Kate Middleton and Princess Charlotte at Kensington Palace.
Meghan And William
Not just that, but Meghan and William got to know each other better. Sources say these two get along fabulously. The efforts to get to know each other has been well appreciated. A tipster reported, “Of course, William is very happy for his brother.”
Meghan already was acquainted with the royal family, so it was time for him to meet hers! She flew Doria Ragland, Meghan’s mother, to London so that they could all bond together. It has been getting serious.
It Went Well
Undoubtedly, the meeting with her parents made Harry feel anxious. However, it probably came as a relief that he got along with Doria very well. This made it more evident that the couple was made for each other.
After that, the couple was spotted with Doria many times. However, did Harry meet her father already? Meghan answered, “He’s talked to my dad a few times, [but] hasn’t been able to meet him yet.”
Virtually Living Together
The two were still not yet living together back then, but they were very close to each other. When the actress was not working, Prince Harry and Meghan would both “virtually live” at Kensington Palace.
The Next Step
The next major event occurred when the two went to Jamaica to attend Harry’s friend’s wedding. People thought this was a proper next step in the relationship. The photos of this event have confirmed that this was indeed the case.
When Meghan shut down her lifestyle website, The Tig, to be more focused on charity work, people started forming more speculations. The speculations were that the couple is becoming more serious about their relationship.
Louder And Louder
Before the wedding of Pippa Middleton, Meghan went to London, and she was brought to the royal palace as soon as she landed at Heathrow, which only caused the discussions to grow even louder.
Spotted At Royal Events
The wedding reception of Pippa Middleton was the first time Meghan was spotted at a royal family occasion. Besides that, she also attended the Audi Polo Challenge with Harry.
As a way to celebrate her 36th birthday, the couple set out for a trip to Africa. This may sound a little strange, but many people believe that helping people in need was how the two first bonded. You will both create a special bond that was formed when you helped out other people.
On their trip, they went to the founding site of Sentebale, which is Harry’s charity. “Sentebale” came from the language spoken by the Lesotho people, which translates to “forget me not,” and this was a tribute to Princess Diana!
Meghan attended the Invictus Games in September 2017 – her first significant royal presence! The event is intended to recognize disabled, sick, and injured military personnel through sports.
The Invictus Games took place in Toronto, and Harry and Meghan were seen holding hands on more than one occasion! Doria was there, too, which led people to assume that the two families would eventually merge.
A year later, Meghan decided to break her silence. She was featured on the front cover of Vanity Fair in their October issue, and also gave an interview where she spoke about her relationship with the Prince.
“We’re a couple. We’re in love,” she said. “I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell.” Meghan decided to share more information with the public.
In her interview, she added, “But, I hope what people will understand is that this is our time. This is for us. It’s part of what makes it so special, that’s just ours. But we’re happy. Personally, I love a great love story.”
Everyone had an idea of what was about to happen after this. Finally, in November 2017, Prince Harry asked Meghan Markle to marry him! At long last! Of course, she said yes.
The news spread fast! Prince Charles also issued a statement saying, “His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales, is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle.” And so, it was time to plan the wedding.
On that day, Prince Charles released his statement about it, so does the newly-engaged couple also did a BBC interview about it! They shared the memorable evening at Kensington Palace. A night filled with love and emotions.
An Exciting Night
Meghan was excited that she even cut Harry short so that she could already say yes! “It was just the two of us, and I think I managed to take you by surprise,” Harry told her.
But at what moment did Prince Harry realize that Meghan Markle was “the one” for him? He was easily able to answer the question. He said it was “the very first time we met.” Isn’t that sweet?
Their Royal Wedding
On May 19, 2018, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle eventually tied the knot in front of millions of people. The wedding was held at Windsor Castle and was attended by their loved ones. But people from all over the world also were able to witness the event from their homes. Their wedding was probably one of the most significant events of the year!
Walked Her Down The Aisle
Meghan Markle was a real stunner when she appeared in her gorgeous Givenchy gown. She also wore a diamond-platinum tiara from the Queen’s collection. Since Thomas Markle was not present at the wedding, Prince Charles was the one to walk her down the aisle.
Their Family Has Expanded
Now dubbed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan had announced on October 15, 2018, that they were expecting a child. The newest member of the royal family, Archie, arrived in the spring the next year.
Odds Are Slim
The odds are very slim for the Duke and Duchess’ son to be King because the succession is not particularly high. Archie’s future can be as normal as it can be. He will live a normal life like his dad.
Seventh In Line
Archie is considered as one of the successors of the Royal Throne. The birth of Archie placed him seventh on the British throne line. He is behind his grandparents, uncle, aunt, and cousins: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis!
