“Meghan would agree with the assessment that the duchesses were not the best of friends. Their relationship hadn’t progressed much since [Markle] was Harry’s girlfriend. Meghan was disappointed that she and Kate hadn’t bonded over the position they shared, but she wasn’t losing sleep over it,” Scobie wrote in Finding Freedom (via Grazia Magazine).

The royal author also revealed that Middleton sent Markle flowers following an incident before the latter and Prince Harry’s royal wedding. But the Duchess of Sussex would’ve reportedly loved it more if Middleton checked in on her during her most difficult times with the press.

But the Suits alum also refused to go into detail because Middleton had already apologized to her and even sent her flowers.
