Kate Middleton was concerned about Prince Harry before his wedding to Meghan Markle, believing the bride-to-be was ’embarrassed’ of her family.
According to royal biographer Ingrid Seward, the Duchess of Cambridge was perplexed as to why her brother-in-law had never met Meghan’s boyfriend, Thomas Markle, until they married in 2018.
According to Seward, Kate was concerned after the Duke of Sussex guest-edited BBC Radio 4’s Today programme in December 2017 and telling viewers that his loved ones were “like the family she [Meghan] never had.”
“She could not understand why Harry had never met his future father-in-law, nor why Meghan, who Harry assured was ‘the one’ and ‘ticked all his boxes’, appeared embarrassed about her family and unwilling to speak about them apart from her mother,” said Seward.
“Both William and Kate wanted to like Meghan if for no other reason than Harry was so madly in love,”
“But the women had little in common beyond some polite chatter and their shared interest in tennis,”
