KATE Middleton once "rolled her eyes" at the mention of the hit TV show Suits – but never moans about Meghan Markle, insiders have revealed.
The Duchess of Cambridge is said to have once "jokingly rolled her eyes" at the mention of the legal drama Meghan starred in before she met Prince Harry.
But according to a pal, the eye roll was "the most they’ve ever seen of her views on Meghan".
They told The Times Kate is "150 per cent more reserved than William," who speaks frankly around his friends and family.
And despite previous rumoured tensions between Meghan and Kate, it's believed the duchess keeps her feelings close to her chest.
She is said to have prioritised William after Harry and Meghan's bombshell Oprah interview – "not how she felt about what Harry and Meghan had done".
A source close to the Cambridges told The Times: “She has focused on personal support for William in what has been a really sad time in his life.
"She never predicted the degree of falling out between them.”

Wills himself is said to have told a friend "Catherine is a peacemaker".
And when the royal party emerged from St George’s Chapel in Windsor after Prince Philip’s funeral, Kate broke the ice by chatting to Harry – before hanging back to allow him and William to talk.
But despite Kate's peace-making skills, which she is said to have worked behind the scenes on Harry and Wills at the unveiling of Diana's statue last summer, her relationship with Meghan has not always been plain sailing.
In November 2018, it was reported "Meghan left Kate in tears" over her demands for Princess Charlotte's bridesmaids dress during a "stressful" fitting.
It was then subsequently claimed that the "rift" began when Kate said the bridesmaids should follow royal protocol by wearing tights which Meghan disagreed with.
She has focused on personal support for William in what has been a really sad time in his life.
Speaking during her Oprah interview, Meghan then said she had been the one to cry over the fittings – and it really upset her.
She told the talk show queen: "The narrative with Kate, which didn't happen, was really, really difficult and something that I think that's when everything changed really."
Asked if she made Kate cry, the duchess added: "The reverse happened.
"A few days before the wedding she was upset about something, pertaining to… the flower girl dresses, and it made me cry. And it really hurt my feelings.
"There wasn't a confrontation and I don't think it's fair to her to get into the details of that because she apologised, and I have forgiven her.
"What was hard to get over was being blamed for something that not only I didn't do, but that happened to me.
"I'm not sharing that piece about Kate in any way to be disparaging to her."
Of the “who made who cry” incident, a palace source reportedly said: “I’ve had hundreds of hours of conversations with her [Kate] and it never came up.
"I only ever heard from Meghan about that — a very different story from what she said to Oprah.”
Buckingham Palace has been approached for comment.
