Finding Freedom author Omid Scobie has weighed in on recent reports that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have been in touch via Zoom and are potentially working on a Netflix project together.
“I think it’s wishful thinking when we see people say that Meghan and Kate are going to work on a Netflix project together or they’re talking on the phone,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “I even read a story about how they’re Zooming whilst making cakes or something, quite recently.”
“Unfortunately, they follow the lead set by the brothers. The brothers aren’t talking, there really isn’t much communication between either side altogether,” Omid explained. “Although there was never really a feud between the duchesses, there was some distance. They were never able to get as close as possible.”
The best-selling author, who is a royal editor for Harper’s Bazaar, went onto explain the imbalances in the Sussexes and Cambridges’ roles in the royal family.
“The Fab Four was always destined to fail because neither of them were equals,” he said. “These weren’t four family members all on the same level, carrying out work together. It was kind of a Diana Ross and the Supremes situation.”
He added that Meghan and Harry “wanted to do just as much as the Cambridges. They wanted to be just as front and center as William and Kate were and, of course, public appetite was there for it, but the institution is very quick to remind you that you are in that position. Harry is number six in line to the throne and must always remember that as he carries out that work. It means that he can never overshadow his brother.”
