TLC TO AIR "KATE V. MEGHAN: PRINCESSES AT WAR?"
One-Hour Special Makes its U.S. Premiere Tuesday, February 5 at 10:00 P.M. ET/PT
The world watched with awe when Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle tied the knot in one of the most talked about events of 2018. But, while Meghan's entrance into the royal family began with girly days out and sunny trips to Wimbledon, media suggests that the honeymoon phase may well be over. Featuring archive footage and interviews with insiders and experts on the royal household, KATE V. MEGHAN: PRINCESSES AT WAR? examines if there is any truth to the speculation of unrest following the new duchess' entry into the royal family, specifically a possible rift with sister-in-law and Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. KATE V. MEGHAN: PRINCESSES AT WAR? makes its exclusive U.S. premiere on TLC Tuesday, February 5 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Initially deemed "the fab four" Kate, Meghan and their royal husbands have undoubtedly changed the monarchy, but media wonder if their very different upbringings are the recipe for an unsettling relationship for years to come. Many claim that preparation for Harry and Meghan's wedding is when the drama began, and that the newlyweds' recent announcement that they are moving out of Kensington Palace is telling of what's going on behind the scenes. There are some who have speculated and urged Meghan to tread carefully in her new role and go along with the traditions and lifestyle expected of her now that she is a royal. Others wonder if she has been treated unfairly by the media, and that she's simply trying to remain her own person despite her new identity.
