Even though it hasn’t been that long since she became the member of the royal family, Meghan Markle has got under Prince Charles’ skin quite fast. He has grown to like her so much that he even once called her “the daughter he never had.” However, he doesn’t seem to have the same close relationship with Kate Middleton, which raises a question of whether Kate is jealous of Markle’s closeness to their father-in-law.
Meghan Markle and Prince Charles liked each other from the very first moment. Not only does he see her as a daughter, but she’s really fond of him, as well, and in a way sees him as a father, too, as he was there for her to help with the transition to the royal life, more than her own dad. Prince Charles claims he’s very pleased with how Meghan handled her new responsibilities and he’s “impressed by her commitment to charitable causes.”
In addition to helping her with her new role in the royal family, Prince Charles was also there for Meghan when her father didn’t show up to take her down the aisle. He even cut ties with some friends when he found out they didn’t talk well of the duchess, which shows how protective he is of her and how much she matters to him.
As for Prince Charles’ relationship with Kate Middleton, it is true that they had their differences in the past, but they seem to be past that and now enjoy each other’s company. He may not be as open about her as he is about Meghan, but that certainly doesn’t mean that he’s not close with Kate, too.
Their issues concerned Prince Charles’ jealousy of Kate and Prince William because he feared he would become overlooked after all the attention the two received upon their wedding. Also, he didn’t like Kate’s parents because he thought they were more favored grandparents. Some believe that these quarrels were just rumors. Whatever the truth, they do get along now, at least in public, as they are often seen laughing, hugging, and even taking part in some activities together.
All things considered, there is no reason for Kate to be jealous of Meghan, and we’re sure she’s not. Prince Charles has supported her, too, and he does treat both of them with equal respect.
