Meghan Markle “in contact” with Kate Middleton after hospital stay and subsequent conspiracy theories

Amidst the aftermath of her January surgery and the whirlwind of events that followed, Kate Middleton found unexpected support in the form of Meghan Markle, according to reports from the Daily Mirror. Despite their strained relationship, the Duchess of Sussex reached out to Kate during the latest scandal rocking the Royal Family, albeit in a formal capacity rather than a sisterly one.

Kate’s recent struggles have been no secret, beginning with a planned abdominal procedure in late January that saw her hospitalized for 13 days before returning home for recovery. Despite the palace’s efforts to provide updates, Kate’s absence from public view since Christmas fueled speculation and conspiracy theories, intensifying with the withdrawal of a Mother’s Day photo over manipulation concerns.

As questions linger about Kate’s well-being and the timing of her return to royal duties, it’s evident that this period hasn’t been easy for the Princess.

In contrast, Meghan Markle understands the scrutiny and gossip firsthand, having faced her share of wild claims and controversy. While their relationship has soured following Meghan and Harry’s departure from royal life and relocation to the US, royal expert Tom Quinn suggests that Meghan has reached out to Kate, albeit in a formal manner.

The lives of Kate and Meghan have diverged significantly since Meghan’s departure from royal duties, with Meghan and Harry vocalizing criticisms of the monarchy, notably in their interview with Oprah Winfrey. Meanwhile, Kate and Prince William are seen as key figures in shaping the future of the Royal Family, despite the challenges they face.
