Queen Elizabeth II’s death in September was tough on everyone. We already know that Meghan Markle, 41, struggled with the Windsor walkabout, which saw her join Kate Middleton, 41, Prince William, 41, and her husband Prince Harry, 38, to greet mourners at Windsor Castle following the late monarch’s death, with royal author Robert Jobson previously saying that she found the whole thing “very difficult.”
And it’s also been revealed that Kate Middleton also found the moments after the Queen’s death hard (and we’re not just referring to Kate allegedly resenting Meghanfor preventing her from having a final goodbye with the Queen) with Jobson also suggesting that the Princess of Wales seeing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at the walkabout was “one of the hardest things she ever had to do.”
Kate Middleton Reportedly Found The Windsor Walkabout Tough
According to the King Charles III: Our King: The Man and the Monarch author, the once fab four may have put on a united front for the mourners, but behind closed doors it was an entirely different story and there was no escaping the feud between the two brothers.
“It had been Prince William’s idea, we later learned, to put on a show of unity – a gesture that would surely have touched his deeply Christian grandmother. And for a few minutes, it looked as though the warring couples had slipped back in time, before bitterness and harsh words had destroyed their relationship,” Jobson wrote in his book.
“Sadly, it was all an illusion – as sources close to the royal family have confirmed to me,” Jobson confessed. “Catherine later admitted to a senior royal that, such was the ill feeling between the two couples, the joint walkabout was one of the hardest things she had ever had to do.”
Windsor Walkabout Moment Goes Viral On TikTok
As so many royal moments do, one particular moment of the Waleses and the Sussexes has received a lot of attention on TikTok, as there was very visible tension between Kate and Meghan. The six-second video showed Kate firing Meghan a cold and somewhat menacing look, and was captioned, “Kate is a Mama bear,” followed by a brown bear emoji. And fans and critics alike had many thoughts in the comments!
“Meghan actually looks petrified,” commented one fan, followed by the crying laughing emoji. “Love it. Someone putting her in her place with one look,” added another, followed by the same crying laughing emoji. “Way to go Princess Kate,” applauded another, as another said, “Team Kate. Class always wins!” They finished off with a red heart emoji.
“The look on their faces says it all,” commented another, as someone else joked, “Even Harry looked scared & trying to think of the fastest way to the emergency room!” “She gave her the mom eyes to behave because M acts like a spoiled child,” said another, as someone else chimed in: “We all know our future queen can handle her own.” We could read these comments all day!
