While the news over the last few months coming from the British Royal family has been largely focused on the departure of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry from their positions as senior members of the Crown, it appears that the ripple effects of their decision have come down on sister-in-law Kate Middleton. New reports are suggesting that Middleton has had to bear a large amount of the weight left behind by Markle in the wake of her unprecedented decision to forgo her role.

As reported by Tatler Magazine, Middleton is allegedly beginning to feel the immense strain of having to contribute even more so to the Royal family to compensate for Markle's departure.

"Kate understands that the only credo of the Royal Family is duty, duty, duty," an insider mentioned to the publication, continuing to explain that "Whereas with the Sussexes it is constant uncertainty, [the Cambridges] represent stability and continuity," confirming that the role the couple has filled since the Duke and Duchess' departure has been one much more concise and solid.


Clearly, there are some deeply-rooted family issues existing within Britain's highest offices. On top of that candid admission about Middleton's devout stance towards maintaining Royal tradition, another source told the publication that, "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. 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."

The report went on to detail that as the "Megxit" scandal transpired, Middleton upped her requisite amount of public appearances in an effort to save face for the family amidst the bad press Markle was bringing. She allegedly took on 11 royal engagements over the course of just one month, with three of them happening on the exact same day. However, insiders went further to claim that Markle and Middleton's tension extended for much longer before than the "Megxit" announcement was made.

"I don’t think that she ever pulled Meghan under her wing and said, 'I’ll show you the ropes,' the source said during the interview.

"Catherine and William were very circumspect from the beginning about Meghan, which hurt and incensed Harry. William rightly cautioned Harry to slow the relationship down. That’s why they all fell out. As the rift got deeper between the brothers, Kate, who used to be so close to Harry, tried to pacify things. But her loyalty will always be to William," they concluded their comments to 'Tatler.'
