Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan Markle have not seen each other in person since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have relocated to the United States in March 2020. Kate is believed to have tried to mend fences with her sister-in-law following Oprah’s bombshell interview with Meghan and Prince Harry earlier this year amid their royal husbands’ ongoing feud. US Weekly senior editor Sarah Hearon suggested it is now a “pivotal time” for the duchesses to come together in a bid to ease the tensions between their households.

Ms Hearon said: “I don’t know if I necessarily think it’s going to mend all fences by sending a baby gift – good for Kate.

“This is a pivotal time since Lili Diana is so young, they’ve been in California for such a long time, and the more time they are apart, the deeper the wedge is going to get.

“So this is going to be the time if they can start traveling to see each other and make an effort.

“And if they do, I think they can totally recover from this and if they don’t, I think it’ll just get deeper.”

A source told US Weekly the Duchess of Cambridge had launched a charming campaign with a series of private notes to Meghan Markle.

The insider said: “Kate has been reaching out to Meghan a lot more since Lilibet was born, she’s sending notes and gifts and trying to build up a relationship.

“The Firm has been instructing staffers to reach out more to Harry and Meghan to get them to soften a bit.”

The birth of Meghan and Harry’s second child, Lilibet Diana, in early June sparked hopes of a reconciliation between the two families.

While in Cornwall to lend a hand to the Queen and Prince Charles during their meeting with world leaders at the G7, Kate admitted she had yet to meet her niece and voiced her excitement at meeting her niece.

Asked about the baby girl, the Duchess of Cambridge said: “I wish her the very best. I can’t wait to meet her.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have not returned to the UK with their children since moving their headquarters to California ahead of the first lockdown in March 2020.

Meghan was expected to accompany the Duke to attend the funeral of Prince Philip in April but a spokesman for the Sussexes said at the time the Duchess had been advised not to travel because of her advanced state of pregnancy.

And the birth of Lilibet Diana on June 4 is believed to have been at the heart of the Duchess’s decision to stay in California as Harry returned to the UK to attend the unveiling of Princess Diana’s statue at Kensington Palace.

The Duke of Sussex joined Prince William in the sunken garden to reveal the larger-than-life-size tribute to the royals’ late mother.

While originally expected to attend with her husband, the Duchess of Cambridge gave the ceremony a miss.

The Duke of Sussex returned to the United States less than two days after the unveiling, touching down at Los Angeles airport on Saturday morning.
