In the latest edition of "Relatable Royals," it turns out that Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton, and their husbands, Prince Harry and Prince William, are all on a "family text chain," according to an Us Weekly source close to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Sounds like a group text to us, and to put it mildly, we want in.
Of course, this is a totally normal thing in most families. Sometimes it's easy to forget that at the end of the day, when the fascinators come off and everyone's lounging around in their comfy pants, that's exactly what they are: a family. Albeit one that lives a very strange, public, and seemingly glamorous existence.
We have so many questions: Does William love communicating solely by emoji? Is Harry always the last one to respond? Does Kate flood the feed with adorable photos of the Cambridge kids? Does Meghan occasionally respond with Suits gifs?
“Kate is lovely. She’s British, she’s reserved. You have to break through that armor. Kate doesn’t warm up to people too quickly,” the source continued. “It takes some time for her to become comfortable and trusting for anyone in the outside world." And Markle has had her own royal adjustment period. “That [royal life] can’t be easy for anyone to get used to, especially a woman who had all the independence in the world just one year ago,” the insider says.
“The ‘feud’ is definitely being played up. Are they the best of friends? No. Do they speak every waking second? No. Do they hate each other? Absolutely not,” the source said. “They are two women under serious amounts of pressure, stress and under a huge spotlight that no one can relate to—they will always have a bond that no one can break.”
Here's hoping those rumors are put to rest soon. Until then, we'll just imagine the Fab Four having a laugh about them on their group text.
