Meghan Markle’s narcissistic need to be in the news is the stuff of legends.

But her lies and distortions have created serious rifts between her and her husband and his royal family.

And now, Markle was hit with some awful family news that makes it less likely that the family relationship will be healing any time soon.

Trouble in the palace

Prince Harry is set to return to London for the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games.

But don’t expect a royal reconciliation when he is in town.

The Daily Beast reported that Prince William and Kate Middelton are no longer on speaking terms with the Sussex Royals.

Harry’s memoir, Spare, was a devastating takedown of the Royal Family, particularly his brother, William.

The brothers’ strained relationship broke down altogether after the book was released.

A friend of William and Kate told The Daily Beast, “Both sides understand each other’s position clearly now . . . William and Catherine felt completely betrayed by Harry’s memoir [Spare].”

The source also told The Daily Beast that Princess Kate revealing to the world that she had cancer put any potential détente on hold.

The Daily Beast added that “[t]hey don’t speak to Harry and Meghan [Markle], and they are certainly not about to start when Catherine is at her most vulnerable.”

Speculation about Kate’s condition had run rampant after she disappeared from the public eye after undergoing surgery.

The Royal source also told The Daily Beast that William and Kate are focusing on keeping their own family’s life together and that they are not particularly concerned about the media drama spun by Harry and Meghan.

The source claimed, “[Harry is] just another person who sold his story to the papers. . .A ‘get well soon’ message is neither here nor there. But the whole situation doesn’t use up a huge amount of their mental energy anymore.”

Ever since Harry’s marriage to Meghan, the brothers’ relationship has deteriorated.

The source continued, “William and Kate have accepted it and moved on. Cancer puts things in perspective. William respects his father’s wish to reconcile with his son, but his focus now is on protecting his family from stressful situations.”

Prince William horrified by “Spare

In Spare, Harry aired his family’s dirty laundry and claimed that William attacked him during an argument.

The subject of the fight was supposedly Markle.

Harry wrote that William labeled her “difficult,” “rude,” and “abrasive.”

Markle’s own family has said similar things, so William may have been over the target if Harry’s claims are true.

Harry wrote that William grabbed him by the collar and ripped off his necklace, causing Harry to tumble to the ground.

He wrote, “I landed on the dog’s bowl, which cracked under my back, the pieces cutting into me. I lay there for a moment, dazed.”

Harry then claimed that Wiilliam apologized but asked him not to tell Meghan about the dust-up.

“‘You mean that you attacked me?’ Harry wrote.

“‘I didn’t attack you, Harold,’” William allegedly answered.

Harry has chosen to stay in hotels when he visits London because the Royal Family won’t allow him to use an official residence.

The rift Markle caused by accusing the Royal Family of racism runs deep.

No one is holding their breath that it will heal any time soon.
