How Baby Archie Has Eliminated Royal Feud Between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton

It seems like for the past few years, whenever we hear anything about the royal family, it almost always pertains to rumors of an alleged feud between Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s sister-in-law, Kate Middleton. It first started when Middleton was seen crying while leaving a dress fitting for her daughter Charlotte. Reports immediately started to swirl that Markle was behind Middleton’s sudden distress. After that, the media seemed to zone in on the two women, trying to scrutinize every last movement and smirk that the two ladies would make.

While there has never been any confirmation of a feud between these two (in fact, a couple of the rumors have already been debunked), there are several reports that claim that Middleton and Markle are actually getting along quite well these days. So, what could have stopped the alleged feud between two? Did the birth of little Archie Harrison have anything to do with it? Keep reading to find out what has eliminated the alleged feud between Markle and Middleton.

When Markle and Prince Harry first started dating, Middleton and Markle seemed to get along very well. In fact, it had been reported that Middleton was acting a sort of a mentor to Markle and helping her to adjust to royal life. 

Right before Markle and Prince Harry got married; however, rumors started to swirl that the two may not get along. First, Middleton was notably absent from Markle’s bridal shower. Middleton was heavily pregnant with her youngest son, Louis, at the time, so that could have been the reason why she chose not to go. But people were still quick to speculate that the reason that Middleton did not show up maybe because the two had gotten into a disagreement.

What signs suggest the royal feud is real?

After that, Princess Charlotte was being fitted for a bridesmaids dress to wear at Markle’s wedding and Middleton was seen leaving from the fitting with tears running down her face. When word got around that Middleton was crying, fans of Middleton’s had immediately thought that Markle had turned into a bridezilla and said something to Middleton that upset her. However, it was later suggested that because Middleton had just given birth to Louis, she as feeling very emotional and was liable to cry for no reason at all.

After that, the media had tried to twist every encounter that the two women had together into something sinister and dark. For instance, this year, Markle and Middleton had greeted each other with a warm embrace when they met each other at the Commonwealth Day services. Even though the two seemed happy to see each other, there were still many speculations and whispers of a potential feud because the girls didn’t arrive at the event together as they did the year before.

Has Archie’s arrival eliminated the royal feud between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton?

Even though there has been no concrete evidence of a royal feud between Middleton and Markle, there is no denying that the two women do seem closer now that Markle and Prince Harry’s son, Archie, has been born. We can’t be certain that they were actually feuding before, but they definitely didn’t seem like best friends either. This could be because, although the two women do like each other, they didn’t seem to have much in common with each other.

Now, that Markle is a mother, the two women seem to be bonding over the fact that they are both mothers of small children. With Markle’s family and friends living in a different country, it seems only natural that she would turn to Middleton for advice and support.

So far, Middleton seems to be more than willing to give Markle the support that she needs. They have been spotted at different outings together and were seen laughing and smiling at one another at Wimbledon along with Middleton’s sister, Pippa. The two women were even seen cheering on their husbands at a polo match while they let their kids spend time with one another.

It’s hard to say if the feuding rumors between Middleton and Markle will ever go away. However, the fact that their relationship is obviously growing stronger, we suspect to see the rumors slow down a little bit in the near future.
