On Saturday, the two women barely looked at each other as they greeted mourners outside Windsor Castle.“I do feel sorry for [Prince Harry] because I think that there must be a huge part of him that regrets [his decision],” she continued.How dare she comfort her grieving husband,” someone else wrote.Peter Phillips, Britain’s Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Britain’s Catherine, Princess of Wales attend a service for the reception of Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin at Westminster Hall.POOL/AFP via Getty Images “There’s a lot to overcome,” said one well-placed palace source.POOL/AFP via Getty Images Many are hoping that the grieving period will mend the relationship between the estranged brothers.“I think Meghan and Kate could be pals, one day, if both were willing.POOL/AFP via Getty Images Markle initially left people torn over the slight display of affection.When one feels good and on the other side of things, it’s easier to do.” Loisel listed several “nonverbal” barriers that Meghan displayed — such as placing her arm in front of her body, lifting her arm as if to wave and adjusting her hair — as indications she was feeling uncomfortable.

” So it would be understandable if nerves and grief were mingling on Wednesday as Meghan and Kate stood together in silence, waiting for after accompanying the Queen on her final journey from Buckingham Palace.Meghan and Kate’s relationship is best described as strained.Getty Images Those fleeting moments gave us a fascinating glimpse into all four royal women.Camilla looked straight ahead under the brim of her black hat, while Kate, 40, appeared grief-stricken.Sophie, 57, seemed to swallow back tears, while Meghan — a former actress — had a “pitch-perfect expression,” body language expert Judi James told the Daily Mail.

Royal biographer Hugo Vickers, who met the Queen countless times, told Page Six: “Technically, because Meghan Markle is no longer an HRH she should curtsy to Catherine, but the Queen always made it clear that she did not expect it … Royals would expect the proper behavior from those in the ‘official system,’ such as ambassadors, but the Queen really [didn’t] care a hoot if [others] didn’t curtsy on meeting her.” Meghan reportedly wished Kate had reached out to her more in the beginning.Chris Jackson/Getty Images It’s been a long time since the strong-minded women of the royal family faced such a power shift.According to royal biographer Christopher Warwick, the Queen Mother was annoyed at being cut off in her prime following her husband King George’s death in 1952.And once her daughter Elizabeth became Queen, she was “jealous” of her own child’s superior position to her.

“She loved the position of being Queen and suddenly all that was taken from her,” Warwick said in the the 2020 Smithsonian Channel documentary “The Private Lives of the Windsors.” Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, was chosen to accompany Meghan in the car to Westminster Hall — a role that once would have fallen to Kate.Getty Images “The Queen Mother minded very much being the Queen Mother.She was jealous of her daughter having become Queen,” he said.Now, there are new minefields for everyone to maneuver.

Their relationship hadn’t progressed much since she was Harry’s girlfriend.” The state funeral for Queen Elizabeth is set for Monday, Sept.19.Getty Images Meghan seemingly felt snubbed by Kate, who had been in the royal family longer.After Kate sent Meghan birthday flowers for her birthday, the book said, “Meghan would far rather have had Kate check in on her during the most difficult times with the press.

It's Catherine PrincessofWales Name 3 female friends Kkkate has. I'll wait! No one GAF. I'm hoping. To quote whatsherface, I really don’t care, do you? One will be Queen and the other nothing, so why waste time and not take the opportunity to have a happy life free from the rules of royalty? They don't need to be friends, after all they are far from each other... It was a wise choice for Harry to take Meghan away from there. It was not justified to continue to live in a hostile environment that is unhealthy.

When they are in their 60's and think what was that all about? Royalty ain't easy, poor Meghan had no clue. Kate did and she was being a mean girl instead of a sister friend. Quit pitting women against each other. It’s misogynistic.

Sharon Osbourne: ‘Being our prince’ is where Harry belongsPrince Harry and Prince William reunited with their respective wives, Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, last weekend to honor the late Queen at Windsor Castle. Hmmmmm living his life the way he wants is what Harry belongs doing Does Sharon think Meghan belongs there two, they are a package deal 😉 It’s 2022, there’s zero need for a Prince.

No Catherine is loved and full of duty.Meg only e et wanted fame. would you speak to your sister in law after her squadies repeatedly wished death upon your niece and nephews, your husbands grandmother and father, brother in law and his wife and were quite detailed & specific in how those deaths could be implemented

No Kate should not have to be friends with megain it’s not happening get over it she’s untrustworthy Well if my sister in law had picked on my child I’d probably never want to be in the same room as her again. Meghan Markle is NOT a royal wife. Please make this end already!!!!!! They stepped down, she worked 72 days! This is waterboarding!!!!!!!

Why do they need to be friends? Are you friends with your brother's wife? Meghan leave royal family alone and go look after your own sick father Why ? Meghan is a snake 🐍 If you look at Kate’s life before marring into the Royal family and look at Megan before she did too and if they had met then I think they would have been friends, but now impossible they way they were pinned against each other in the press and popularity.

Fans praise Meghan Markle for holding ‘grieving’ Harry’s hand at Queen’s serviceMarkle’s PDA initially sparked controversy since royal couples, like Prince William and Kate Middleton, rarely show any form of it. Cool. Praising? Like so stupid it’s her husband! Everyone needs love

I don't think Kate could ever trust her again No way Nah. She’s a backstabber. Don’t trust that hoe What a crock. Megan quit the Royal family. Remember? She's not a royal wife anymore Kates a 3 lifepath & Meghans a 4. No lol TRAITORS You would never trust MM. a leopard never changes spots Why do they need to be friends?
