In this piece Cam Hui of the Pennock Idea Hub in Canada has considered the effects of Risk-Parity funds on the bond market. Using three different analytical techniques, he concludes that Risk-Parity strategies did not exacerbate the downturn in bond prices.

While both factors are at work, Hui attributes most of the rise in nominal rates to inflation breakeven normalization.
