According to the source, the Duchess of Sussex reached out to Kate amid the fears of the backlash from Prince Harry’s recent comments. Following the comments from the Sussexes since they departed the Firm, Meghan has attempted to win over Kate and “smooth over” relations. While Meghan has attempted to reach out to Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge is allegedly keen to stay out of the Sussexe’s row with the Firm.

However, Kate is also keen to maintain the peace amid the pain it has caused all concerned.

The source told Heat magazine: “Meghan’s fearful of losing her title, and the repercussions of Harry’s statements about the royals in his recent Apple TV+ documentary with Oprah Winfrey.

“She’s secretly reached out to Kate, as she knows that the only hope they can have of smoothing things over with the family is to get Kate on their side.

“Kate would rather stay out of any ‘secret talks’, as she fears anything she says could be used against her.

“But she wants peace and civility, especially seeing how much pain this caused William, Charles and the Queen.

“Her only words of wisdom for Meghan and Harry are to stop once and for all with the public outbursts.”

Over the last few months, Harry made a series of allegations relating to his life within the Royal Family.

As well as admitting he struggled with anxiety, the Duke also claimed he had been left traumatised by the death of his mother.

Harry also revealed he wanted to break the cycle of trauma within his family which had fuelled part of his desire to step back from the Firm.

He also compared his life to a mix between a zoo and ‘The Truman Show’ during an interview with US actor, Dax Shepard.

Harry said: “There is no blame.

“I don’t think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody, but certainly when it comes to parenting, if I’ve experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered, I’m going to make sure I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on, basically.

“It’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway so we as parents should be doing the most we can to try and say ‘you know what, that happened to me, I’m going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you’.”

Although Harry and Meghan have stepped back from the Firm, the Duke is still expected to return to the UK to unveil a statue of his mother.

Harry and his brother will reveal the exhibit they have been working on and designing in July.

Despite the strained relations, Harry will join on July 1 after confirming to aides he will return to the UK.

The statue will be placed in Buckingham Palace’s Sunken Garden.

A source added: “Harry has said he will do his utmost to be there.

“He wants to put on a united front with William and pay an appropriate tribute to their mother.”
