Following reports that Meghan Markle reached out to Kate Middleton after the recent royal Photoshop controversy, experts suggest that the Princess of Wales remains hesitant to address the ongoing family rift. They claim that it will take more than a gesture from Meghan to mend the strained relationship with Kate.

According to reports, Meghan Markle has made multiple attempts to extend an olive branch to Princess Kate, but the Princess of Wales is likely to reject these overtures. Experts believe that Kate does not view Meghan as a qualified person to provide support or advice.

Kate Middleton has faced challenges in recent months, including taking a step back from royal duties after undergoing planned abdominal surgery in January. Her health has been the subject of online speculation. Additionally, this week, a family photograph released by Kate on Mother’s Day sparked a Photoshop scandal after fans noticed apparent editing errors.

Despite Meghan’s reported efforts to reconcile, experts suggest that the Princess of Wales remains reluctant to tackle the ongoing family rift, indicating that more significant steps may be required to bridge the divide.

The recent controversy surrounding the alleged Photoshop incident involving Kate Middleton has sparked discussions about the potential for reconciliation between her and Meghan Markle.

Royal author Tom Quinn previously suggested that Meghan, who has faced online bullying herself, could use this situation as an opportunity to mend fences with Kate. He claimed that the former Suits actress had made several attempts to reach out, expressing genuine concern for her sister-in-law’s well-being.

However, according to former BBC royal correspondent Jennie Bond, a reconciliation between the two royal women seems unlikely at the moment. Bond stated that despite Meghan’s efforts, Kate is unlikely to view her sister-in-law as a “qualified person” to offer advice or support, given Meghan’s relatively brief time within the royal family. Bond’s comments shed light on the potential challenges in bridging the gap between the two women, at least for the time being.

The current situation presents an opportunity for the Princess of Wales to prioritize her recovery, both physically and mentally, and it is unlikely that she would find it prudent to address the familial discord at this juncture, according to the expert’s assessment.

While the Princess may graciously accept a gesture such as a gift basket or floral arrangement, it is posited that more substantial efforts would be required to mend the rift within the royal family. The commentator expressed skepticism that the recent events would bring the two women closer together.

The relationship between the Princess of Wales and the Duchess of Sussex has been notably strained in recent years. In 2021, the Sussexes leveled criticisms at the Princess and the broader Royal Family during their high-profile interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Subsequently, Prince Harry’s memoir, “Spare,” further exacerbated tensions when he alleged that the Princess had been unwelcoming towards his wife and that the two women had engaged in a disagreement regarding bridesmaid attire.
