Kate is mom to Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1, while Meghan gave birth to Archie in May.

The insider shared, “They’re each a little more relaxed. They have more in common now.”

An insider also commented on Meghan’s difficulty adjusting to life in the public eye.

They told the mag, “Meghan has struggled with the intensity of the spotlight. Although she is a former actress, this is on a different level.”
