The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is reportedly hurt by Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry's New Year's decision to step back as senior Royals and take up independent work.


The decision of the Royal family of Sussex to take a step back from Royal duties as Senior Royals has left the world in a frenzy. 

According to a report by US Weekly, one of those most shaken by the sudden development is the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.

An insider revealed to the news outlet that the Duchess of Cambridge had been impacted by Meghan Markle and Harry's shocker announcement. The source explained:

"Kate's incredibly hurt too. She acted as a mentor to Harry before Meghan came into the picture and hates seeing her husband so upset."

The source also explained that Kate's husband, Prince Williams was upset, and felt let down by his brother's "reckless" and "selfish" actions, adding that the younger prince has thrown all the good advice of his brother back in his face.

The Sussex Royals' decision to embrace financial independence, and change their terms of service to the monarchy, while splitting their time between the United Kingdom and North America has come off as upsetting to many.

Since Meghan and Harry made their mind-blowing decision, speculations about the "true" reason surrounding the move have come to limelight, with most dwelling on the ongoing crisis between the royal brothers.



The Queen of England responded to the brewing feud shortly after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex laid out their intentions. The Queen's Buckingham Palace office released a statement, noting that the issue was yet inconclusive.

"We understand their desire to take a different approach, but these are complicated issues that will take time to work through."

A source has revealed that the Queen was furious, but was more focused on encouraging the brothers to "put on a united front." However, the Royal duo have refused to resolve their differences, with both remaining adamant.

Appeal from other members of the Royal family to urge the brothers to resolve their differences hasn't yielded much. This has given life to long upheld speculation that the brothers have been at loggerheads for years.


It can be recalled that last November, the brothers, along with their Duchesses graced the Royal Albert Hall for the Festival of Remembrance Service, with the brothers twinning up in dark suits paired with red and wine striped tie.

Addressing the fued, a Royal insider confirmed that there was indeed a divide between them, but they were made to grace the occasion as part of their duties to the family.

The Royal feud has progressed beyond what anyone would have anticipated; the world is looking up to the Princes to reach an amicable resolution.
