A source told The Sun there was a row about the treatment of staff, denied by Kensington Palace, before Meghan and Harry's wedding in May. When asked if she was excited about Meghan and Harry's new arrival, she replied: "Yeah absolutely, no it's such a special time to have yeah, all the kiddies and to have a cousin for George and Charlotte as well and Louis so it'll be really, really special".
"Wills particularly was anxious and felt close enough to Harry to voice his thoughts".
The news comes amid speculation that Kate and Prince William will not spend Christmas with the Royal family this year, but instead the couple and their children might spend the holiday with Kate's family.
A source close to the Princes told Vanity Fair this would have been "unthinkable" two years ago and added: "A lot has changed".
Prince Charles stepped in and arranged for an invitation to be sent to Meghan and Harry to spend Christmas with Wiliam and Kate at their country home near Sandringham, Anmer Hall, in order to help them bond. "Harry wants to be his own person - not in William's shadow".
According to unnamed royal insiders, Meghan's plea was rejected by Buckingham Palace, where officials pointed out that the chapel was Queen Elizabeth II's regular place of worship.
But they have chosen to join the Queen which is likely to be interpreted by royal watchers as a sign of unity.
Referring to William and Mr Matthews, a hedge fund manager, she said: "I have two lovely sons-in-law and I hope I'll have a lovely daughter-in-law". 'When sis sees the ghost of Ann Boleyn walking the tower with her head in her hands, will she demand Ghosbusters?
Rather than laugh it off, the comment proved to be a friendship-ender - Kate and Carly have not spoken since, Ms Nicholl said.
A close friend of Mr Markle told the Daily Express: "Thomas is of the opinion, 'What's next?"
