During an interview with Andy Cohen, Martina Navratilova and his wife Julia Lemigova were asked about any tension they observed between Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle as they stood near them at Wimbledon 2019.
Royal appearances are rumored to be at odds in the year’s Grand Slam. According to the couple, they noticed that Meghan’s attitude changed whenever Kate turned away or wasn’t paying attention.
Meghan always seemed to be looking for the limelight, trying to distract Kate, but she failed in her efforts. Her intense looks and intimidating attitude contrasted sharply with Kate’s elegance and sweetness.
The conversation during the interview even touched on a lighter topic, discussing the couple’s nine puppies born while watching the Wimbledon final.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s appearances at Wimbledon have been notable, such as when she practiced tennis with Roger Federer in 2019. However, Meghan’s attendance at the event that year was different, as she was not seated in the royal box and wore a hat while watching the matches.
Traditionally, athletes competing on center court bowed or made courtesies to members of the royal family seated in the royal box. However, the rules were updated in 2003, and athletes now only bow out of courtesy to then-Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles. It has been reported that Kate feels upset and frustrated by the current standoff between the Royals and Harry, as Meghan has reportedly restricted contact between them.
Additionally, there have been reports that Meghan prevented Harry and William from having an intimate meeting during William’s upcoming business trips to the United States.
The tense dynamic within the royal family continues to capture public attention, sparking discussions about Meghan Markle’s behavior and her relationship with Kate and other senior royals.
