According to The Mirror, Meghan Markle took the initiative to reach out to Princess Kate when her husband, Prince Harry, made a quick trip to the UK.

The journey followed the worldwide announcement that King Charles had been diagnosed with an as-yet-unidentified form of cancer.

According to the outlet, Meghan made contact with Princess Kate and is reportedly making moves behind the scenes. She has also reportedly made contact with the King.

“Meghan Markle has contacted Kate and Charles” following their recent health scares, an insider told US Weekly. Therefore, efforts are being made to make amends. Meghan is supporting Harry in all of this, and she wishes the royals—Kate included—the very best.” 

Despite never being particularly close, Kate and Meghan were friendly with each other. The news outlet claimed that while Princess Kate”won’t meddle” in her husband Prince William’s still-seemingly tense relationship with Harry, she is “open” to reconciliation and “willing to move forward.”

They stated, “They can use this as a starting point. There is hope that this will lead to the rift being repaired, as the general consensus is that life is too short.”

The outlet added that, despite Meghan’s absence from Harry’s earlier visit to the King at Clarence House in London, “Meghan was in total agreement that Harry had to be there. He got to tell his dad how much he loves him and hear the whole story of Charles’s struggles.”

The experience of marrying into the royal family, which few people can truly comprehend, is what unites Kate and Meghan.

A tense relationship between Kate and Meghan can be seen in the infamous bridesmaid dress controversy from Meghan’s May 2018 wedding to Harry.

Before her wedding, there were rumors that Meghan Markle had made Kate cry. However, Meghan clarified in an Oprah Winfrey interview in 2021 that it was actually the other way around and that she (Meghan) had been “hurt” by Kate’s actions. 

In his 2023 memoir, Spare, Prince Harry went into further detail about the incident, stating that he discovered Meghan Markle sobbing “on the floor” following a fight with Princess Kate regarding Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress. After informing Meghan that there was a “problem” with the dress, Kate is reported to have stated that every bridesmaid dress needed to be “completely remade.”

In the present, it’s unclear if or when Princess Kate and Meghan will cross paths in person, but according to OK, their phone conversation was “warm and humorous.”
