A Traditional Event with an Unexpected Protagonist

Trooping the Color 2024 is an event that traditionally celebrates the official birthday of the King of England. However, this year it had an unexpected protagonist: Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales. After months of absence due to her cancer treatment, Kate reappeared in public with a brave smile and the unconditional support of her family.

Meghan Markle’s Shadow

Although the focus should have been on Kate’s triumphant return, Meghan Markle’s shadow loomed over the event. Hours before Kate’s reappearance, Meghan decided to launch new products from her online store, which was considered by many to be an insensitive and opportunistic move. The British press harshly criticized Meghan, accusing her of wanting to take advantage of the media attention focused on Kate.

The Duchess of Sussex launched two new products: jams and biscuits exclusively for dogs, labeled under the American Riviera Orchard brand. These products were promoted by Nacho Figueras, a close friend of Prince Harry. The British press called this commercial maneuver opportunistic, since Meghan knew that any action of hers would be highly commented on such a significant day.

Meghan’s Absolute Silence

Since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped down from royal duties, they have been conspicuously absent from major events like Trooping the Color. This year, her absence was even more noticeable due to the special context of Kate Middleton’s reappearance. Unlike Harry, who maintained some minimal contact with her sister-in-law, Meghan did not show solidarity with Kate through a message, image or statement on such a significant day for her and her Royal Family.

Meghan’s silence has been especially deafening and has sparked speculation about the relationship between the sisters-in-law. According to sources close to the Royal Family, the relationship between Meghan and Kate is practically non-existent. This indifference on Meghan’s part has been seen as a monumental snub at a time of vulnerability for Kate, who has shown impressive bravery by reappearing in public.

Long Term Consequences

Royal experts suggest that Meghan’s attitude could have long-term consequences for the relationship between the Sussexes and the rest of the royal family. Meghan’s disdain has not only fueled the narrative of tension and division, but has also called into question her commitment to the family values ​​they once upheld together.
