Prince Harry speaking with sister-in-law Kate Middleton behind wife Meghan Markle’s back is allegedly a royal no-no.
Royal commentator Kinsey Schofield refuted The Mirror’s recent report that Middleton, 41, “feels sorry” for Harry, 38, and supports him through secret, late-night phone calls.
The relationship between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Prince and Princess of Wales has been strained for years — especially since Harry and Markle stepped down as senior members of the royal family in 2020.
On her podcast “To Di For Daily,” Schofield alleged that Harry is trying to act “defiant” amid the ongoing family drama.
“I personally don’t believe that Harry would speak to Catherine privately without Meghan’s blessing,” she added.
She also claimed that William, 41, and Middleton are too “laser-focused on their goals” to worry about Harry and Markle’s hoopla and have “made it a point to distance themselves.”
“A significant amount of William’s unhappiness toward Harry revolves around Harry and Meghan discussing Catherine so openly to Oprah and within ‘Spare,’” Schofield told Fox News on Monday, referencing Harry’s bombshell tell-all memoir.
“Catherine is very respectful of Prince William’s feelings and wouldn’t go behind his back,” she added.
The Post has contacted reps for Harry, Markle, and Kensington Palace for comment.
The remarks came after an unidentified source told OK! Magazine that Middleton will never be able to forgive Markle for the “damage” she caused by speaking about the royal family in a jaw-dropping sit-down with Oprah Winfrey in 2021.
“Kate has drawn a hard line in the sand — she’s not changing her mind about them,” the insider claimed.
“They never apologized for their lies. But it’s harder for William because Harry is his brother. It’s a horrible situation all around.”
Adding insult to the Winfrey wound, Harry branded William his “arch-nemesis” in “Spare”.
“There has always been this competition between us, weirdly,” Harry told Michael Strahan on “Good Morning America” while promoting the book’s publication in January. “I think it really plays into — or is played by — the ‘heir, spare.’”
