“They were at a very different stage of life”

I think it seems Meghan had a very unrealistic expectation of her relationship with Kate.

Meanwhile, last year, Meghan and Harry announced their decision to step back from their senior royal roles.

At the time, they said they wanted to become financially independent but still support the Queen.

It’s said to have sparked tensions between Harry and his family.

However, those tensions apparently became more intense after Harry and Meghan’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey in March of this year.

During the chat, the couple made a string of revelations and allegations about the royal family and the reason behind their decision to step back.

Meghan said she felt suicidal during her pregnancy with Archie, but claimed she didn’t receive help from the Palace.

In addition, she alleged there were ‘concerns and conversations’ within the family about Archie’s skin colour before he was born.
