Kate wanted to keep Meghan away from her during UK visit, claims royal expert

Kate Middleton wanted to keep Meghan Markle away from her while the Sussexes were in the UK for the Queen's funeral, a royal expert has claimed.

Despite reports that King Charles saw “tremendous flickers of hope” for a reconciliation between the Sussexes and the rest of the Royal Family when he spoke to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at the Queen's funeral, there was reportedly still a frosty atmosphere between sisters-in-law Kate and Meghan.

Kate was seen giving Meghan what some interpreted as an “icy stare” that knocked the confidence out of the Duchess of Sussex and the new Princess of Wales seemed keen to keep her distance, according to royal expert Neil Sean.

Speaking on his YouTube channel Mr Sean said: "She [Kate] was indeed terrified and wanted Meghan to keep away from her.

"Simply, because she felt that whatever was said, discussed, even an informal chat, could have been leaked out."

He added: "I'm not suggesting, and neither was Catherine I might point out, that even small talk, but you seemingly never know.

"As we told you recently, Gayle King seemingly had a hotline to whatever was going on.

"[And] was able to speak, at length, to a media US team about, you know, the fact that things weren't going particularly well."

Meanwhile body language expert Katia Loisal has since revealed that she believes Kate's "icy stare" knocked the confidence out of Meghan.

She told 7News: “Quite unlike the confident Meghan we know, Meghan appeared ill at ease during this encounter, which is not surprising given the recent criticism that she has faced.”

While Prince William appeared to be on fairly friendly terms with Meghan, his wife’s behaviour suggested that there was still a chill between the two sisters-in-law.

The princess looked like she was attempting to "freeze Meghan out" during the short reunion, Ms Lousal said.

“On numerous occasions Meghan looked over at Kate, however, the gaze wasn't reciprocated,” she said, as she pointed out Kate “looked through” Meghan instead.
