Royal fans around the world watched Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tie the knot in a gorgeous wedding over the weekend, but not everyone was happy about the ceremony. Insiders claim that Kate Middleton—fresh off the birth of her third child—was jealous over all the fanfare Markle received at her wedding. Is there a royal family feud in the making?
Harry and Markle naturally received a lot of attention as they exchanged vows inside St. George’s Chapel Saturday afternoon. The wedding was attended by over 600 guests, many of whom were members of the royal family. The media coverage and fan reaction to the wedding were overwhelmingly positive, but sources say that Middleton was jealous that Markle’s wedding got more attention than her own.
An insider told Radar Online that Middleton was “incredibly bothered” by Markle’s wedding and how it was way over-the-top. Middleton also felt like the couple was given more spending money than her and William, all of which made her upset. And that’s not all that bothered the Duchess of Cambridge.
Middleton’s sister, Pippa, was left off the official guest list and did not receive an invitation. Although Pippa was eventually invited to the wedding, Middleton didn’t appreciate the initial oversight. She also thought, per the insider, that Markle could have done a better job handling herself at the wedding and sticking to royal traditions.
While royal fans want Markle and Middleton to be best friends, Middleton just doesn’t have enough time to instruct Markle on all the ins and outs of being a member of the royal family.
“Kate does not think that Meghan deserves to be a royal, and believes that she is in it for the wrong reasons,” the source shared.
While the drama unfolds, Markle and Harry are looking forward to beginning their new lives together. Shortly after exchanging vows, the former actress gave an inspirational speech to wedding guests at the couple’s reception.
Markle started by thanking her mom, Doria Ragland, for always supporting her. She also thanked Prince Charles and Camilla for being gracious hosts and welcoming her with open arms. Markle did not mention her father, Thomas, who backed out of the wedding at the last minute because of health concerns.
Kate Middleton has not addressed the rumors surrounding her feud with Meghan Markle, who is looking forward to starting her duties as an official member of the royal family.
