Kate Middleton recently made a proactive move by phoning Meghan Markle. She wanted to smooth over any friction that had resurfaced due to a controversial book release. 

It was when accusations and misunderstandings placed the Royal Family in a challenging spot. Omid Scobie's book Endgame addressed sensitive issues like race.

Kate's initiative came after the book stirred the Royal atmosphere. It revived tensions linked to past allegations about racial concerns within the palace.

This situation traces back to an explosive interview given by Duke of Sussex Prince Harry and his wife Meghan. The Sussexes highlighted conversations in the Royal Family about their son's skin colour.

It brought unwanted attention to the newly- appointed King Charles III and the Princess of Wales, Kate, herself.

"Shortly after the book’s allegations came out, Kate reached out to Meghan to clear the air. Charles forced Kate to become his peacemaker after William's refusal," an insider told In Touch Weekly.

"She agreed because when it comes to the royal family, Kate has always taken her duties seriously — she does what she is told. This feud has gotten so unseemly and out of hand, it’s starting to overshadow his reign and the entire monarchy. He wants to heal the rift once and for all," the source added.

Interestingly, Scobie later admitted to initially naming specific individuals as the subjects of racial accusations in an early draft, which was not meant for public release. He said the next edition would have an update to ref­­lect the final version of the book.
