Are Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle in a Fight Right Now?

Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton have a lot of reasons to be happy. Both women are young, talented, and married to princes.

What could these two women possibly have to fight about? As it turns out, plenty.

The newlyweds are moving away

The internet was abuzz when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced that they’d be moving away from Kensington Palace. This royal compound houses more than a dozen royal family members, including Prince William and his whole family. The two couples lived right next door to each other.

This is very curious timing for a big move – after all, Meghan is about to have a baby, and surely you’d think if she and Kate are besties they’d want to be close by during this pivotal time. The announcement of their move makes people speculate if the foursome – who the press dubbed “The Fab Four” – are really as tight-knit as they appear to be.

Are William and Harry fighting too?

Rumors of deeper tensions were fueled by the notion that Prince William and Prince Harry are having a fight, too. British tabloids had a lot of negative items about the princes right around the time of their father, Prince Charles’ 70th birthday celebration. But then some think those negative news items were placed there on purpose to make Prince Charles look better. After all, he may even be jealous of all the attention his sons always get in the media.

During this time the news broke that the royal courts would be split in half, with each prince focusing on different royal duties separately. Obviously, Prince William will play a very different role when he’s king, too. But still, the timing seems interesting.

Why are Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton fighting?

The Daily Mail reported that a source said: “Kate and Meghan are very different people. They don’t really get on.” This is a different picture than the one the media portrays of the two women hanging out together for fun.

But is it just normal disagreements, like sisters might have, or is it something deeper? There is that incident with the royal wedding that raised some eyebrows.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Kate and Meghan got into an argument over bridesmaids dresses right before Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding, and with Kate’s post-pregnancy hormones raging (she had just given birth to Prince Louis), the spat between the two women made an emotional Kate break down and cry.

It’s possible that there’s no tension at all

Of course, the only people who really understand the relationship between Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are the women themselves. One thing most people fail to take into consideration is the enormous amount of pressure placed on them and how every single move they make is scrutinized. Even normal disagreements are made to look like all-out wars.

It’s possible that a little bit of separation may help their relationship. We’ll find out soon enough.
