While the pair have seemingly made it through that rough patch, it was recently revealed that Meghan feels if Kate were to have received the same negative treatment from the media that changes would have been made in royal policy.
As reported in the Daily Mail, Meghan reportedly told friends that if Kate had been criticised as badly as she was, the Royal Family would have stepped in and "changes would have been made." According to the source, "[Meghan said] no one would have put up with it, and the broken and outdated system would have been revised. Those outlets responsible for their vicious attacks would have been shut out."
This disparity is apparently what "irritated Meghan and Harry the most": That if the press had "constantly criticised and needlessly bashed Kate the way they did her, changes within the royal's media policy would have been made. No questions asked."
"Harry went to his father Prince Charles and his grandmother the Queen 'constantly' about Meghan being bullied," the outlet says, "but they 'wouldn't do anything to change the protocol,' despite seeing 'how it was tearing him apart,' according to the source."
"Meghan said they made it seem like this is the way it is, deal with it. Harry had been dealing with it far too long. She said he wasn't going to let this destroy her life and their marriage." Apparently she also said the whole thing was "infuriating."
