Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle Are "In a Better Place" After Lilibet's Arrival
Rumors of tension between Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle simmered under the headlines for years, but after Meghan and Prince Harry's sit-down with Oprah, things seemed to come to the surface. During the interview, Meghan insisted that people didn't have to choose between them, saying, "If you love me, you don't have to hate her. And if you love her, you don't have to hate me." But that was months ago and sources are telling Us Weekly that the two are in a better place now that Meghan gave birth to her daughter and fans are seeing that there's no bad blood between them.
"Kate even sent Meghan a gift for the baby," a source said. "They're in a better place and have exchanged texts since the birth of Lilibet."
Sources also say that the two have a "truce" after stories about Meghan's wedding had people wondering about what really happened about specific dresses and Kate crying over a misunderstanding. The story got so twisted that reports went on to say that Meghan was the one who cried, but whatever happened, the two have moved on.
"The bridesmaids' dress incident took place so long ago and [it] feels pointless to hold onto the anger," the source added. "It's wasted energy. They've called it a truce."
There have also been reports of Kate reaching out to Meghan, sending notes and gifts, and more.
"Kate has been reaching out to Meghan a lot more since [Lilibet] was born, she's sending [notes and] gifts and trying to build up a relationship," the source said. "The firm has been instructing staffers to reach out more to Harry and Meghan to get them to soften a bit."
