Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s reportedly growing closeness with Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice has sparked concern within the royal family, particularly among Prince William and Kate Middleton. Despite having stepped back from their royal responsibilities four years ago, the Sussexes are allegedly forming stronger bonds with these unexpected members of the family.

The absence of Kate Middleton from royal duties due to undergoing cancer treatment has further fueled worries about this emerging alliance. According to royal author Tom Quinn, an alliance between Harry, Meghan, Beatrice, and Eugenie is a significant concern for William and Kate. The fear stems from the perception that Beatrice and Eugenie may have more in common with Harry and Meghan than with other members of the royal family, leading to a sense of isolation or being “virtual outcasts” themselves.

Beatrice and Eugenie, the daughters of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, have reportedly maintained a relationship with Harry and Meghan even after the Sussexes’ relocation to the USA. Eugenie’s visit to Harry and their joint appearance at the Super Bowl in 2022 suggest a continued closeness between the sisters and the Sussexes. However, the extent of their relationship with William and Kate remains uncertain.

The situation is compounded by William’s solo handling of royal responsibilities while Kate undergoes cancer treatment. Quinn suggests that Harry and Meghan’s recent trip to Nigeria has exacerbated tensions within the royal family, with concerns that the Sussexes may overshadow positive publicity while Kate remains in the background due to her health condition.

Amidst these dynamics, the royal family grapples with balancing internal relationships and external perceptions, particularly given Kate’s health challenges and the ongoing public scrutiny of the Sussexes’ actions.
