Commentator on Harry-Meghan Reconciliation: 'What's in It for Kate?'

Commentator on Harry-Meghan Reconciliation: ‘What’s in It for Kate?’

A commentator recently highlighted the solitary reason Kate Middleton might contemplate mending fences with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The question, “What’s in it for Kate?” was posed and dissected by royal commentators during a discussion about a potential reconciliation between Prince William, Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The answer centers around the couples’ children.

Royal commentator Louise Roberts, in an interview with Sky News Australia, suggested that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are at a point where they desire to move beyond past grievances. “Meghan feels bad for Kate. She would have to be completely heartless not to feel bad for her,” Roberts shared.

Kate made a rare video announcement on March 22, 2024, revealing her diagnosis with an undisclosed type of cancer, following the announcement of King Charles III’s cancer diagnosis a month prior. Since then, Kate has mostly stayed out of the public eye, focusing on her recovery.

Roberts raised the question of whether Harry and Meghan genuinely want to reconcile with the Prince and Princess of Wales. She wondered, “What’s the motive, and what’s in it for Kate?”

Roberts suggested that the well-being of their children could be a motivating factor for Kate to consider reconciliation. “The only reason I could think she would maybe entertain some kind of reconciliation is for the sake of the children,” Roberts added.

Prince William and Kate are parents to Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 9, and Prince Louis, 6. Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan are parents to Prince Archie, 5, and Princess Lilibet, 3.

“So those little cousins can get to know each other, and [King] Charles [III] as a grandfather can get to know his grandchildren in the U.S.,” Roberts noted. A previous report indicated that the 75-year-old monarch is eager to play a more active role in all of his grandchildren’s lives.

However, the logistical challenge remains. The Wales family is based in Windsor, England, close to Adelaide Cottage, Harry and Meghan’s former U.K. home. The Sussexes, after moving from there in 2020, now reside in Montecito, California.

Reports have indicated that Harry and Meghan are trying to reconnect with William and Kate. They even sent “well wishes” before Kate’s Trooping the Colour appearance on June 15, 2024. An insider told Closer, “They’ve jointly reached out to send well wishes, but they’re still not really in a place with Kate to warrant much of a response. Yet, this hasn’t stopped them from trying to connect.”

Meghan reportedly wishes to move past the bitterness and mend relationships with William and Kate. “When Kate gets back into action, their hope is that it might take some of the heat off them and possibly trigger a truce with her, William, and even the King,” an insider revealed.

A source mentioned, “Meghan’s desperate to come across as the bigger person and end this feud between them. Appearing like some sort of royal savior could only benefit her image. Despite all their bad blood, her heart does go out to Kate; she can only imagine how hard this situation must be for her.”

Kate’s preventive chemotherapy treatment is ongoing, and she has shared openly about experiencing both “good days and bad days” on social media.

“Meghan has made it clear she’d love nothing more than to move past all the nonsense and find a way towards healing for everyone’s sake. She’s ready to let the anger and bitterness go,” the source added.

This approach marks a notable shift from previous reports which indicated that Harry was more inclined than Meghan to extend an olive branch.
