Kate Middleton is seemingly so done with the feud between her and distanced family members Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
According to royal expert Jennie Bond, the Princess of Wales, 41, and husband Prince William have “closed their minds” to sealing the broken bond with the Sussexes.
The former BBC correspondent told OK! magazine recently: “When you come from a happy, united family – as Katherine does – it’s incredibly hard to understand how people can become estranged.”
She went on to note that the “rift could [have been] fixed” following Prince Philip’s funeral in 2021, as the Duchess of Cambridge was seen chatting with Harry, 38, at the time.
She even encouraged William, 41, to talk with his baby brother.
“But we now know that it didn’t work. In fact, William and Harry had a blazing row right after the funeral. There comes a point when you just have to accept that happy families are not a game that everyone can play,” Bond sighed.
The journalist went on to suggest that Middleton was “hurt and insulted by things that Harry and Meghan have said,” however, “she and William are a very strong team.”

Bond added: “Together, [William and Kate] come to the conclusion that the rift with Harry cannot be fixed in the foreseeable future. They’ve closed their minds to that possibility and decided to get on with their lives.”
The Invictus Games founder penned a series of scathing words about his sister-in-law in his memoir, “Spare,” that was published earlier this year.
In the book, Harry wrote about Middleton’s tense relationship with the “Suits” star, including describing the wedding-dress fallout between the two women.

Vanity Fair contributor and “The New Royals” author Katie Nicholl also gave her take on the feud between the embattled royal family.
The reporter told The Sun: “While Kate and Harry used to be very, very close, there’s been a complete breakdown of that relationship. I don’t think Kate does angry.”
“I think it is more a case of feeling very disappointed, very let down and feeling hurt knowing that she had no right of reply — and Harry knew full well she had no right of reply,” she continued.
