Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle Had ‘Issues’ About Joint Charity – Celebrity News

Duchess Meghan is doing things her own way once again. After Kensington Palace formally announced on Thursday, June 20, that she and Prince Harry were breaking away from Prince William and Duchess Kate’s charity, the Royal Foundation, to start their own, a royal insider exclusively reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly that the Fab Four were experiencing creative differences ahead of the split.

“Kensington Palace is painting this as a natural progression,” says the insider, “but there were definitely issues with Meghan and Kate seeing eye to eye on how they wanted to run this charity.”

While the Duchess of Sussex, 37, wanted “to be more involved — create initiatives and be in the trenches,” the Duchess of Cambridge, also 37, wanted to be “more hands off.”

There isn’t, however, a “disagreement or rift” between the royal ladies — who have been plagued with feud rumors for the last year — says the insider, but the mom of 7-week-old Archie is “figuring out what she can do in terms of being active [and more] comfortable with her role.”
