Kate Middleton’s Heartbreak: Eugenie’s Shock Move!

Prince Harry has always been close to his younger cousin, Princess Eugenie, who has remained loyal to him, even as the rest of the family shakes their heads in disappointment at his treatment of their grandmother, the Queen.

While Harry and his wife, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s behavior over the past two years has turned them into a few royal outcasts – forcing even his brother and sister-in-law, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to distance themselves – Eugenie, who announced this week Turning 32 apparently has no problem with that.

The princess, along with her husband, Jack Brooksbank, spent time with her cousin at his California home earlier this month, leaving the rest of the family in no doubt where her loyalties lie.

New idea has learned that Kate, in particular, struggles with Eugenie’s support for the Sussexes.

“Kate and Eugenie were never really close when they were younger, but Kate made it a point to visit her when baby August was born,” said a source. Kate, who lived across the street from Eugenie at Kensington Palace in the early months of August, was a great help to her as she adjusted to the new motherhood.

“During those close moments, Kate poured out her heart about a lot of personal things, including how she felt about Meghan and Harry fleeing and then tearing the family apart.”

Now, the source says, Kate, 40, “feels incredibly stressed about confiding in Eugenie as she has made it clear that she is on team Sussex”.

The source says Kate was “appalled” to see paparazzi photos of Meghan, 40, and Harry, 37, who treated Eugenie and Jack to a raucous dinner at an exclusive Santa Barbara restaurant during their recent visit to the US.


“Kate was unaware that Eugenie and the Sussexes had such a warm friendship, and she expects everything she’s ever said to Eugenie to come right back to Harry and Meghan,” said a source.

“Given their penchant for twisting the truth to fit their story, she fears that what Eugenie has said will be magnified and passed on to the press. It’s a terrible situation for Kate, who feels like she’s actually been spied on by someone she’s started to consider a close friend.

“Eugenie is playing with fire though – it won’t be long before Kate’s husband is in charge of the family, including the wallet. If William feels Eugenie has belittled his wife in any way, there will be hell to pay.”
