British Royal Family News says that while the tabloids would certainly like to see it this way, there is no war between Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle behind the scenes. Here’s what you need to know.
Speaking on the Heirpod podcast, Omid Scobie, who co-authored the book, Finding Freedom: Harry, Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family, says that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle were never “Duchesses at war” even though the media would often go with that narrative.

While they were certainly cordial with one another, their relationship never really lacked any depth, either. Omid added that both Meghan and Kate did enjoy fashion and tennis, but that never led to a long-lasting friendship.
“They were never at war and never the dueling duchesses. They were just two women who had this very surface level friendship,” he said on his podcast. “They were able to connect and bond to trips to Wimbledon – we saw them there a couple of times. But certainly where more depth was required or perhaps a stronger shoulder of support from the Duchess of Cambridge’s side, we saw that that didn’t happen, over and over again. And it was one of the things that really left Meghan a bit disappointed in that friendship… as there were times that she really would’ve appreciated that extra support internally.”
Omid Scobie also suggested during the podcast that Kate Middleton might have simply been too busy for Meghan Markle. After all, she is a royal mother to three children and the wife of the future King of England.
He said, “People have asked why Kate may have not been there in that situation and I really don’t know but it’s clear at the time her priorities weren’t there. We do see her as an incredibly dedicated wife, mother and member of the Royal family and maybe that’s a lot for one person to juggle.”
