Prince William and Kate reportedly taking legal action against publication

A source has told the Daily Mail the Duchess of Sussex is upset at how swiftly the palace has responded to criticism of Kate as opposed to staying silent during the peak of media backlash against her.

This comes a week after Tatler Magazine ran a story called "Catherine The Great" that made a series of negative claims about Kate, including that she has become overwhelmed by her work load in the wake of Meghan and Prince Harry stepping down as senior royals. Although the Cambridges are looking to score a big win against the British publication, Tatler claims that their lawsuit has "no merit".

According to Page Six, the source compared Kate to Princess Diana and characterized her as being "perilously thin", a reference to Diana's struggle with eating disorders.

According to the publication, Kensington Palace has sent legal letters to Tatler "demanding" that its profile on Kate Middleton - titled "Catherine the Great" - be "removed from the internet".

An insider revealed that William and Kate chose to take legal action against the magazine because the story was "full of lies". "It's disgusting. It's sexist and woman-shaming at its very worst". But whether or not those added duties are weighing them down is up for debate. Had the roles been reversed, Meghan said she would have gone out of her way to make Kate feel part of the family.

Their departure has forced the Queen to reshuffle royal duties.

Given how much work Harry and Meghan have done on behalf of the crown for the past two years, other royals have been picking up the slack in the wake of their exit. "Tatler may think it's immune from action as it's read by the royals and on every coffee table in every smart home, but it makes no difference", says a source who wishes to remain anonymous.

As a public service, Shaw Media will provide open access to information related to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) emergency. Public health officials were notified of positive tests, according to state and local public health protocols.

"Pasternak's article caused huge unnecessary pain for Kate and its central claim that she felt trapped and unhappy was wildly untrue", the source revealed. Of course she's smiling and dressing appropriately but she doesn't want this. "She feels exhausted and trapped. She's working as hard as a top chief executive officer, who has to be wheeled out all the time, without the benefits of boundaries and plenty of holidays'".

It has now been reporter that the reconciliation between the brothers may have been a cause of this as Katie Nicholl had earlier told Entertainment Tonight: "There have been clearly some quite major rifts in that relationship, but things have got better and I know that William and Harry are in touch on the phone".

What did Tatler say about the lawsuit?

They confirmed that they had received letters from the royals.

In response, Kensington Palace issued a statement denouncing the feature.

Kensington Palace released a statement last week saying the story contained a "swathe of inaccuracies".
