The sweet reason why Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are now ‘bonding’

Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are reportedly growing closer, and it’s all down to the fact that they’re now both mothers.

The duo were officially family after Meghan married Prince Harry in May last year, and both lived in Kensington Palace until the Sussexes left London for Windsor.

But now it seems that what’s bringing the Duchesses together is something very special they’ve got in common – motherhood.

According to PEOPLE magazine, their relationship has become stronger after Meghan gave birth to little Archie.

A royal source told the publication: ‘There is a sense of [Meghan and Kate’s] relationship strengthening.

‘They’re each a little more relaxed. They have more in common now.’

They also added that the fact they no longer live near each other is ‘allowing them more time to be like family’ rather than colleagues.

The revelation comes after the royal twosome attended the Women’s final at Wimbledon over the weekend, which royal commentator Victoria Arbiter says shows a ‘warmer’ relationship between the two.

‘It illustrated a warm relationship between these women who have young babies and are in similar situations in their lives’, she said.

‘Babies are a great leveller. The minute you’re bonding over your stories and sleepless nights, suddenly all the stuff that mattered before doesn’t matter anymore’, the expert told the publication.

Kate and Meghan also attended the polo match both their husbands were playing last week, and took the little ones along.

While Louis cracked them up by doing funny faces and wearing mum Kate’s sunglasses, Prince George and Princess Charlotte caused riot by playing football and climbing into the car’s boot to find snacks.
