The Palace is shutting down rumours
Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have always had their relationship under microscope, and often times had negative stipulations about their familial ties blasted on newspapers and publications.
This week is no exception for the pair, as Tatler magazine published an article that claimed the Duchess was angry and overwhelmed over Markle's exit.
The article, while praising the Duchess of Cambridge for her due diligence and hard work, does so at the expense of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
“Kate is furious about the larger workload. Of course she’s smiling and dressing appropriately but she doesn’t want this. She feels exhausted and trapped,” the article alleges.
“She’s working as hard as a top CEO, who has to be wheeled out all the time, without the benefits of boundaries and plenty of holidays," it said.
The article also claims that Kate never put Meghan under her wing, and that she and Prince William were “circumspect from the beginning” about the Duchess of Sussex, which upset Harry.
The piece then goes on to say that Kate Middleton has a "ruthless survival streak" saying, “She keeps her head down because the prize of being queen is so great. She models herself on the Queen and now speaks like the Queen.”
The article also blasts the Cambridge Duchess's mother, Carole, saying that she is an "incredible snob" and "the most difficult to work with."
The Palace clapped back with an official statement saying, "This story contains a swathe of inaccuracies and false misrepresentations which were not put to Kensington Palace prior to publication."
However, a Tatler spokesperson says that the Editor-In-Chief stands by the article and it's sources, and said that Kensington Palace knew of the article months ago, and even helped them work on it.
The magazine claims that the Palace denying their knowledge of said article is "categorically false."
Kate Middleton and Prince William have taken on an extra workload of homeschooling their three children during the pandemic.
