While past rumors have suggested that the Duchesses of Sussex and Cambridge dislike each other, last Saturday’s appearance of the royals together at Wimbledon suggests otherwise. Let’s see how Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton bonded over motherhood.
On Saturday at the Wimbledon tennis match, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle were spotted together in public without their husbands for the first time in a year. The pair was also accompanied by Pippa Middleton, Kate’s sister.
The sister-in-laws laughed and smiled together in a genuine way at Wimbledon. According to People, after Meghan’s good friend Serena Williams lost the final “Kate put her hand out and rubbed Meghan’s back to console her.” This simple act demonstrates a positive relationship between the two royal mothers.
As Meghan and Prince Harry moved out of Kensington Palace earlier this year to start a family of their own at Frogmore Cottage, needed space was created between Meghan and Kate.
With the arrival of baby Archie, it was necessary Meghan and Prince Harry had a home of their own. This move enabled both the Sussex and Cambridge families to enjoy some privacy.
Since the arrival of baby Archie, it is clear that Meghan and Kate have much more in common. A People insider source revealed that “there is a sense of [Meghan and Kate’s] relationship strengthening.”
Royal commentator Victoria Arbiter also noted that Kate and Meghan’s interactions at Wimbledon “illustrated a warm relationship between these women who have young babies and are in similar situations in their lives.”
As two mothers who have new common interests and responsibilities a good relationship is essential. It is heartwarming to see the bond forming between the sister-in-laws. And of course we love to see baby Archie strengthening the royal family.
