Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been married for less than a year. In that time, the media has been all over the duchess and has shed a negative light. Harry has stuck to his wife's site through all of the negativity, but has been rumored to be taking along along with everyone in the royal family. Does the duchess have any close friends among the royals?
There have been plenty of rumors between Meghan and Kate
Ever since Meghan married in the royal family, she and Kate Middleton have been all over the news. And most of their media has been in response to a reported feud between the two duchesses. According to tabloids, Meghan made Kate cry at a dress fitting for Princess Charlotte before her wedding, and things went downhill from there. Pretty soon, Meghan and Kate were in the news almost daily for new feud rumors. When Harry and Meghan decided to move out of Kensington Palace, the press was unanimous, because the two women couldn't tolerate each other. The rumors have since died down a bit, but when that happened, new rumors circulated that the women had made an agreement to get along in public. Meghan supposedly upset Princess Eugenie at not attending her wedding reception
Princess Eugenie married longtime boyfriend Jack Brooksbank last October, right around the same time Meghan and Harry announced Meghan's pregnancy. Meghan attended Eugenie's ceremony alongside Harry, Prince William, and Kate Middleton, but she did not attend the wedding reception, leaving Harry to go by himself. Sources close to the royals said that Eugenie was offended Meghan opted not to attend her ceremony, and reportedly caused a rift between the two. However, it was also suspected that Meghan had announced her pregnancy yet, and was not able to conclude that Eugenie's wedding reception could have made it clear that Meghan was expecting, which could explain why she decided to attend.
Meghan has seemingly struck up a friendship with the queen
When Meghan was first introduced to the royal family, she knew she had a good impression on the queen – and she apparently did. Meghan reportedly got on the queen's good side by complimenting her dogs; the two shared a love for animals. They also have similar tastes in food, which may have been a bonding point as well. Over the past few months, though, Meghan has proven that differently than royal tradition would prefer, so it's unclear how close she is and the queen still are today. Meghan has broken royal rules in number of times since she and Harry bet, so it's possible the queen either admires her independence or frowns on it.
It appears to respect the royal family members here, though they do not seem close
It's hard to believe everything that comes out in the news,
But it doesn't seem that Meghan is extremely close to any royal family
members. While the family appears to at least keep up appearances and respect
one another Meghan has hardly ever been spending time voluntarily
with anyone except Harry. But that doesn't necessarily mean they are all dislike
here, either; it just means Meghan probably isn't on a close-friendship level
with anyone but her husband.
