Harry and Meghan force Kate to ‘fight fire with fire’ as the ‘gloves are off’

Kate Middleton isn't afraid to "stick up for the royals and herself" and will "play dirty if she has to", a source claims.

The Princess of Wales may be forced to "fight fire with fire" if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle continue to launch bombshell claims against the Royal Family, an insider claimed.

The source told Closer Magazine: "Kate won't hesitate to keep sticking up for the royals as well as herself.

"She's shown an incredible amount of tolerance and bitten her lip but even she can only be pushed so far and this latest revelation is seen as a clear message for Meghan to back off and watch what she says about Kate moving forward."

The claims come after Harry and Meghan were sensationally dropped from their lucrative Spotify deal last month, having released just one series of Meghan's podcast, Archetypes.

Now rumours have circulated the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's Netflix contract could also be pulled – despite the pair being nominated yesterday (July 12) for a Hollywood Critics Award (HCA) for their documentary Harry & Meghan, which premiered on the platform in December.

The six-part series, as well as many of the couple's other media successes including Harry's memoir, Spare, saw the duo take aim at the Firm and launch devastating claims against Kate, King Charles, Queen Camilla and Prince William.

And while it appears the pair have tried to pivot their brand away from critiques of their blue-blooded relatives over the last year, it appears their "scandal-led" offerings are what keep drawing audiences in.

Speaking to the Daily Star, PR expert Edward Coram-James of Go Up said: "The only undisputed major media successes that the Sussexes have seen in the past few years have been scandal-led."

With the couple continually finding themselves in hot water with entertainment bosses, it could be tempting to return to their royal-bashing ways.

But the Princess of Wales is reportedly having none of it and isn't keen to be "walked all over" by her estranged brother-in-law and his wife.

The insider continued: "The bottom line here is Kate isn't afraid to take the gloves off and play dirty if she has to.

"It's about self-preservation and not being walked all over."
