Being a member of the Royal family – or being in the spotlight in general – leaves no room for privacy, and often, people speculate and paint a picture of who they think a person is.
In terms of Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, the two have had a very public relationship since the Suits star met, got engaged to, and married Prince Harry.
While it’s no secret that relations have been strained and smoothed over the last few years – especially following the now infamous Oprah Winfrey interview – it looks as though things are about to go public again with the release of Harry and Meghan’s Netflix docuseries this week.
But before the streaming service drops the highly anticipated show, let’s take a look back at Kate and Meghan’s relationship, from the good, the bad, and everything in between.
2017 was the first time that the Duchess of Sussex openly spoke about her sister-in-law to be. After she and Harry announced their engagement, the 41 year old and her then-fiancée were interviewed for the BBC, and the loved-up couple were asked about how the Royal introductions went.
"It was exciting, I mean I've – you know I'd been seeing her for a period of time when I – literally didn't tell anybody at all," Harry revealed. "And then William was longing to meet her and so was Catherine.”
"So, you know, being our neighbours, we managed to get that in a couple of – well quite a few times now and Catherine has been absolutely…” before Meghan interjected with, “She's been wonderful. Amazing."
Prince Harry then agreed, replying, “As has William as well, you know, fantastic support."
During this time, it looked to be all coming up roses for the new couple and in-laws, who were dubbed as the “Fab Four." 2018 even saw the two women attend their first Royal engagement together after they were photographed at the Making A Difference Together event with their respective spouses.
King Charles III’s youngest son, who was recently asked if he's putting "money before family," even celebrated their bond during that time, saying, "I think it's really good that we've got four different personalities. You know, we've all got that same passion to want to make a difference."
"But [we have] different opinions, and I think those opinions work really, really well [together],” he added. “Working as a family does have its challenges. Of course it does. But we're stuck together for the rest of our lives.”
To which Meghan added, “togetherness at its finest."
However, during March 2021’s Oprah interview, Meghan set the record straight about her and Kate's apparent disagreement regarding Princess Charlotte’s flower girl outfit at the Royal wedding.
"The narrative with Kate, it didn't happen,” Meghan confirmed, addressing claims that she made her cry.
"A few days before the wedding she was upset about flower girl dresses and it made me cry. It really hurt my feelings. It was a really hard week of the wedding. And she was upset about something, but she owned it, and she apologised.”
“She brought me flowers and a note, apologising. And she did what I would do if I knew that I hurt someone – to just take accountability for it."
She also expressed that revealing her truth was in no way “disparaging'' towards Kate, adding that “she’s a good person.”
"I think so much of what I have seen play out is this idea of polarity, where if you love me, you don't have to hate her. And if you love her, you don't need to hate me."
