Kate Middleton ‘feels exhausted and trapped’ over ‘enormous’ workload after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry quit as royals, a friend has revealed.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 38, and Prince William, 37, have made a host of virtual appearances during the crisis as they isolate with their children, Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two, in Anmer Hall in Norfolk.

But Kate is said to be ‘furious’ over her larger workload after the Duke, 35, and Duchess of Sussex, 38, who are currently living in an $18 million mansion in Beverly Hills, stepped back royal duty in March this year.

A friend of the Cambridges speaking to Tatler magazine revealed: ‘William and Catherine really wanted to be hands-on parents and the Sussexes have effectively thrown their three children under a bus.’

The insider went on to call Meghan and Prince Harry ‘so selfish’ for their behaviour, adding that their decision would have profound impacts on the Cambridge’s family life.

They explained: ‘There goes their morning school runs as the responsibilities on them now are enormous.’

Another friend of the Duchess explained that Kate has been left fuming over the increase in workload.

They said: ‘Kate is furious about the larger workload. Of course she’s smiling and dressing appropriately but she doesn’t want this. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped back from royal duty at the end of March, and have been living in an $18 million mansion in Beverly Hills since 

‘She’s working as hard as a top CEO, who has to be wheeled out all the time, without the benefits of boundaries and plenty of holidays.’

Meanwhile others went on to reveal how Kate and Meghan’s relationship fractured at the Sussexes wedding rehearsal in May 2018. 

One friend explained how the Duchess of Cambridge was determined to follow royal protocol on the big day.

They explained: ‘It was a hot day and apparently there was a row over whether the bridesmaids should wear tights or not. 

The source said Prince William and Kate feel Megxit has had a huge impact on their family life and will prevent them from being ‘hands-on parents’ due to their increased workload 

‘Kate, following protocol, felt that they should. Meghan didn’t want them to.’  

The royal went on to ‘put Meghan in her place’, reprimanding her for speaking down to Kensington Palace staff. 

One insider added: ‘In the palace, you hear numerous stories of the staff saying so-and-so is a nightmare and behaves badly but you never hear that about Kate.’

Kate, whose manners are described as impeccable, is also said to have a ‘ruthless survival streak’ that makes her ‘well suited’ to the House of Windsor.’ 

Meanwhile another insider revealed how the royal’s relationship with Meghan fractured as Kate advocated for royal protocol and said bridesmaids at the royal wedding should wear tights (pictured, Princess Charlotte at the wedding)   

One insider declared Prince Harry and Meghan had been ‘so selfish’ in their decision to step back from royal life 

One member of the royal set commented that Kate is ‘impenetrable’ and there is ‘nothing to dislike or like.’ 

They added that she ‘keeps her head down’ because she is aware of the greatness of the ‘prize’ of becoming Queen.

The insider added that Kate models herself after the Queen, and even now speaks like the Queen.   

Another insider said that while Kate is ‘smiling’, on the inside she is ‘furious’ about the increased workload on her family 

Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, experts have spoken about how Prince William and Kate have lead the royal family’s efforts to support the nation.

Earlier this month, Katie Nicholl revealed how the couple have been ‘stepping up to the plate’ amid the pandemic.

She told ET: ‘We’re seeing them letting their guard down and that is a result of what we are going through.’

She said the Cambridges had ‘really stepped up to the plate’ and had been providing a ‘dose of entertainment’ by sharing snaps and videos of the Cambridge children.

She revealed: ‘It’s uplifting for Britain, particularly for royalists, to see what the future of the royal family is going to look like. The royal family has gone to great lengths not to be seen to be aloof or distant or unrelatable.’
