Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are headed to Wimbledon this weekend. Kensington Palace just confirmed that the sisters-in-law will attend the tennis event and even speak with a few of the athletes. Is this a sign that their feud is cooling off?
Middleton and Markle are setting aside their differences to attend the women’s singles final on Saturday. After the match, the royals are expected to meet a few of the champions and talk about their experiences playing tennis. The two will then speak with young girls and boys about sports. Middleton is scheduled to return to the tournament the following day, where she will watch the men’s singles final alongside Prince William.

Serena Williams is set to go up against Angelique Kerber to determine who wins the women’s singles. If Williams comes out on top, then she will be tied with Margaret Court for the most Grand Slam titles in the history of the game. According to Us Magazine, Williams is actually good friends with Markle and was invited to her wedding to Prince Harry back in May.
While Middleton and Markle put on a good face for the public, inside sources say that things are not going well behind closed doors. Sources claim that Middleton has stopped giving Markle advice on how to handle herself in public because she believes the actress is trying to outperform her. And that isn’t all that is coming between them.
“But since the wedding, Kate feels like Meghan has barely made any effort with her and is more interested in impressing [Queen Elizabeth],” the insider explained.

The source claims that Middleton doesn’t want to see Markle fail. But with the former Suits star trying to outdo her, Middleton is taking a step back and hopes their drama cools off. This is one reason why the Duchess of Cambridge did not advise Markle on what to wear for the Trooping the Colour ceremony last month.
As fans will recall, the actress wore a dress that showed off her shoulders at the ceremony, which sparked a lot of criticism from the public.
To make things worse, Middleton is still dealing with the birth of her third baby. Although she has quickly whipped her body in shape, it’s been hard watching Markle take the spotlight while she is on maternity leave. Perhaps the engagement at Wimbledon this week will change that.
Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have not commented on the feud rumors.
