Why Kate Middleton Refuses to Accept a Reported Olive Branch From Meghan Markle

There are reports circulating that Meghan Markle has offered an olive branch to the Princess of Wales (formerly known as Kate Middleton) as she continues to recover from abdominal surgery. Because these are unconfirmed reports and may just be a way of generating some positive PR for Harry’s wife during a time when people can’t stop talking about Kate, many royal watchers are taking the news with a grain of salt.

However, one royal expert says that even if the reports are true, the princess is not interested in reconciling or accepting any sort of olive branch from the duchess. Read on to find out why.

It’s been a rough few months for the Princess of Wales. After undergoing a serious medical procedure, she needed to cancel all her engagements through March and hasn’t been seen in public much leading to constant speculation and conspiracy theories about her health and well-being.

A March 10 family photo put out by Kensington Palace of the princess and her children was supposed to halt all the rumors and speculation. But it only made things worse after it was revealed that the image was doctored.

Now OK! magazine has reported that sources revealed during this troubling time for Kate, Prince Harry thought it would be a good idea for Meghan to reach out and offer any support she could.

The source told the publication: “Harry is keen for Meghan to reach out to Kate and lend her support. Harry wants his family to return to the U.K. and he knows that the only way that will happen is if Meghan can repair her fractured relationship with Kate.”

Commentator says Kate doesn’t want anything from Meghan at this time

Royal correspondent Jennie Bond gave her take on these reports from anonymous sources and said that even if there was some truth to them the last thing Kate is thinking about now is reconciling with her estranged sister-in-law.

“I don’t think Kate would ever consider Meghan — who spent such a very short time in the royal fold — as an appropriate or qualified person to give her advice or support,” Bond opined per OK! “This is a time for Kate to concentrate on regaining her strength, physically and mentally, and I don’t imagine she would welcome tackling the family rift right now.
