Given Princess Kate's current struggle with cancer, it appears that Meghan Markle, who has had a strained relationship with her sister-in-law, is now willing to reconcile.

“She wants to make peace with Kate. She doesn’t want any bad blood between them,” an unnamed source told Star Magazine.

In her 2021 tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, the former actress known for her role in "Suits" openly criticized Princess Kate, who is 42 years old, and accused her of causing her to cry before her wedding to Prince Harry in 2018. However, the Duchess of Sussex allegedly now expressed a desire to move on from this incident.

“Meghan’s friends say she regrets how things went down and she never meant any harm to Kate. Though she must realize she could’ve done things differently,” the informant stated.

In March, Princess Kate made a public announcement stating that she is now fighting cancer, as previously reported by OK! Magazine.

"I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you personally for all the wonderful messages of support and understanding whilst I've been recovering from surgery. It has been an incredibly tough couple of months for our entire family. In January, I underwent major abdominal surgery in London. At the time, it was thought that my condition was non-cancerous. The surgery was successful, however, tests after the operation found cancer had been present. My medical team therefore advised I should undergo preventive chemotherapy, and I am now in the early stages of that treatment,” Princess Kate said in a video posted to social media on Friday, March 22, per CBS News.

"This of course comes as a huge shock, and William and I have been doing everything we can to process and manage this for our young family. It has taken my time for me to recover from my surgery. Most importantly, it has taken us time to explain to George, Charlotte and Louis and to reassure them I am going to be OK. As I've said to them, I am well. Having William by my side is a great source of comfort, and the love and support and kindness that has been shown from so many of you. As a family, we need some time, space and privacy while I complete my treatment. My work has always brought me a deep sense of joy. I must focus on making a full recovery. At this time, I am also thinking of those whose lives have been affected by cancer. Please do not lose faith or hope. You are not alone,” the beautiful wife of Prince William went on.

Following the news, it was disclosed that Prince Harry and Meghan made contact with Princess Kate.

"We wish health and healing for Kate and the family, and hope they are able to do so privately and in peace," Prince Harry and Meghan said in a statement. The future course of events is uncertain, but, Grant Harrold, a former employee of King Charles, suggested that a return to the prior state may not be possible.

“[Harry] caused damage and broke down trust. It’s difficult when you’re a future monarch,” Grant told the New York Post.

“I doubt they’ll ever get back the relationship they had originally. That was a very different relationship built on trust. It’s going to take time. William is a tough character. He’s a good guy,” he went on.
