Queen Elizabeth is taking Meghan Markle’s side in her alleged feud with Kate Middleton according to reports. Apparently, the Queen and Prince Harry’s new wife have become so close that she thinks Meghan is “the future of the monarchy.”
According to Life & Style Weekly, Kate Middleton might be feeling a bit threatened now that Meghan Markle is in the spotlight. As a matter of fact, “Meghan Mania” has taken over in Britain, as everyone can’t stop talking about the Duchess of Sussex, how beautiful she is, her stylish new royal wardrobe and how she’s such a “breath of fresh air” for the royal family.
And for the Duchess of Cambridge, this is all very upsetting. That’s because Meghan has managed to steal the media spotlight away from her. The timing couldn’t be worse: Kate is at home on her maternity leave with her third child, Prince Louis. In just two short months, Meghan Markle has managed to win over everyone in Kate Middleton’s absence, including Queen Elizabeth.
In addition, Queen Elizabeth has made it pretty clear that she does enjoy Meghan’s company. She invited the former Hollywood actress to celebrate Christmas with the family and has even brought her along for a solo trip to Chester, England with her last month. Clearly, Queen Elizabeth sees what the rest of the world sees in Prince Harry’s new wife: a woman who is well spoken, educated, thoughtful and willing to make a difference in this world.
What’s more, she’s also proven to be very hard working and passionate about her charity work. As much as Kate Middleton tries to keep the focus on her, it’s Meghan who is already making a difference. While Kate always seems so stiff and reserved, Queen Elizabeth reportedly finds Meghan and her sense of humor, warmth, and intelligence rather refreshing in comparison.
So far Buckingham Palace has not made any comments about Queen Elizabeth and Meghan Markle’s relationship although at this point, it’s doubtful that anything will be said. It’s quite clear that the Queen enjoys Meghan Markle’s company, as the two have so far gotten along very well during their royal engagements and public appearances together. But whether or not she prefers Meghan over Kate Middleton, remains to be seen.
