The Duchess of Sussex could return to the UK with Prince Harry in September but it is unlikely she will face a warm welcome from some members of the Firm. After making a series of bombshell allegations during the interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, namely that Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge made her cry, it is unlikely either royal will engage privately, Daniela Elser has warned. Indeed, Ms Elser claimed it is unlikely any public gesture or figurative olive branch will be offered if the Duchess returns with Harry later this year.

Writing for News.com.au, she said: “Given this frosty climate if Kate and Meghan were required to reunite publicly alongside their balding menfolk for the Diana event in September, polite iciness, with a slew of aides diplomatically wedged between them at all times, would be the best anyone could hope for.

“And privately? It is impossible to imagine either woman particularly wanting to speak to the other right now.

“If some sort of Cambridge and Sussex reunion did take place, odds are both sides would be whispering favourable interpretations of the meeting into the ears of sympathetic journalists before their teacups had hit the saucers.

“Just look back at the images of the last time the Sussexes and the Cambridges were photographed together, namely at the Commonwealth Day service in March 2020.

“Despite the fact that Kate is a consummate professional at the royal game, and knowing full well that TV lenses would be trained on her the entire time, she totally cut Harry and Meghan, refusing to even acknowledge them.”

In the interview with Oprah, Meghan revealed Kate had made her cry during Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress fitting despite it being reported differently.

Meghan said: “A few days before the wedding, she was upset about something pertaining to flower girl dresses, and it made me cry, and it really hurt my feelings.

“Everyone in the institution knew it wasn’t true.

“I am not sharing that piece about Kate to be in any way disparaging about her.”

Ending the issue, Meghan did reveal Kate had later apologised with flowers and allegedly a note to take accountability, the Duchess of Sussex claimed.

She also insisted Kate is “a good person” and should not receive any hate over the incident.

Meghan added: “She is a good person.

“I have seen so much of this idea of polarity – but if you love me you don’t need to hate her, and if you love her you don’t need to hate me.”

Harry is set to return to the UK in September for another ceremony to celebrate his late mother.

It is thought, Meghan, who gave birth to their second child this year may travel with Harry.

The event has not yet been confirmed but it is likely to take place at Kensington Palace.

The brothers came together last week to unveil a statue of their mother in Kensington Palace’s Sunken Gardens.

However, a source told The Sun that a distance remains between the pair.

With Harry returning to the US 24 hours after the event, the source indicated the pair did not have enough time to come together to resolve their row.

They said: “There were no peace talks and distance remains there.

“It is a step forward but this was not the time or the place.

“September is a date pencilled in for a more extensive celebration of the statue, and Harry will want to return.”
