Kate Middleton has been known as a peacemaker in the royal household. Many believe that Duchess of Cambridge is helping her husband Prince William and brother-in-law Prince Harry reconcile amid their rumored feuding. She also knows how to show an act of unity whenever she is with her sister-in-law Meghan Markle.
Kate Middleton Uses This Strategy To Demonstrate Close Bond With Meghan Markle
The Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex are close in age. Both are gorgeous and stylish that's why many have been pitting them against each other.
A few years ago, Kate Middleton attended Wimbledon with her sister, Pippa Middleton, and sister-in-law Meghan Markle. During the sighting, Middleton let the former Suits star sit between her and Pippa.
Body language expert Judi James said Prince William's wife uses "public acts of unity" to demonstrate her close relationship with Markle. According to the expert, Middleton uses the strategy for peacemaking in public.
"When there were rumours swirling about a fall-out between Kate herself and her sister-in-law Meghan, it was Kate performing the public acts of unity and using her body language to describe a friendship between them," James told Express. "There were two displays at Wimbledon, one where Kate hosted Meghan alone and sat laughing and giggling with her as the cameras recorded every moment."
James continued, "The second time Kate sat Meghan between herself and Pippa to emphasize the impression that Meghan was very firmly one of the family group."
James pointed out that the future queen consort also led the signaling of friendship when Meghan Markle joined the royals for their traditional Christmas walk in 2018. Middleton left her husband's side to move across and walk and chat with Prince Harry's then-girlfriend.
"This was again in front of the cameras, to firmly signal that there was no rift between them," James added.
Kate Middleton Played Peacemaker For Prince William And Prince Harry During Prince Philip's Funeral
Kate Middleton also played peacemaker for Prince William and Prince Harry. The royal siblings were rumored to have a falling-out prompting allegedly prompting the Duke of Sussex to move out from Kensington Palace and step down from their royal duties.
Despite their alleged rift, Prince Charles' son reunited at Prince Philip's funeral in April 2021. Several royal experts noticed how Middleton gave her husband and brother-in-law the opportunity to reconnect when they reunited.
Prince Harry and Prince William were spotted exiting the chapel together and talking after the funeral service. Many noticed that Middleton was initially walking beside her husband and brother-in-law. However, she walked slower and was seen eventually walking behind them.
"It's always been my understanding that behind the scenes, Kate has tried very hard to forge a rapprochement and act as a peacemaker between William and Harry," Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight. "She loves Harry. She says that she is the sister that he never had. She has been heartbroken to see them fall out, and I think she is one of the few people, one of the few family members who would actually be able to push the brothers together, which she did in a very subtle way but was very effective."
"I certainly think she played quite an important role in getting the brothers to the point where they were able to engage in a conversation, of course, in front of the world's press. Everyone was watching," Nicholl added.
Prince Harry and Markle reportedly greeted Kate Middleton privately on her 40th birthday. Despite the alleged feuding between the Cambridges and Sussexes, some royal experts said their relationship is already okay.
