According to US Weekly, Kate Middleton is looking to extend an “olive branch” to Meghan Markle when she and Prince William visit Boston, which will be around the same time Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex will be in the Big Apple.

While the Earthshot Prize awards ceremony is taking place in Massachusetts in early December, Meghan and Harry are being honored by the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights of Hope Award Gala on Dec. 6.

A source told US Weekly, “Once Kate and William’s Boston plans are set in stone, she’s planning to extend an olive branch to Meghan in a bid to reunite the brothers and heal the rift,” adding that it’s what Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Diana would have wanted. Us Weekly recently reported that Princess Catherine and Prince William are planning to make a quick trip to NYC during their visit to the States and they are hoping to “squeeze in some personal time.” Hopefully getting the fab four back together again will be on their agenda……….
