Is there some serious drama going on in the royal family? Reports are surfacing that Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton haven’t been getting along, and some claim that their feud has escalated to the point that it is affecting their husbands. According to In Touch Weekly, Prince William and Prince Harry have always enjoyed the couples hanging out together as a foursome. But now that the Duchess of Cambridge is shutting Markle out, it is causing problems for the brothers.
An insider claims that Prince Harry and Prince William are “at their wits’ end” and they “feel stuck in the middle” as the tension builds between their wives.
“William is doing his best to smooth things over,” says the insider, but it doesn’t seem to be working. “The competition is out of control.”

One of the things the women appear to be fighting over is Harry and Meghan’s new apartment. Right now, the newlyweds are living in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace, but that will soon change. They are going to be moving into Apartment 1 and will be William and Kate’s neighbors, who live in Apartment 1A.
Kate is apparently not happy about this because Harry and Meghan’s apartment is larger and has one more bedroom, and she doesn’t think it is fair. The insider says Kate sees Meghan as a threat, but it’s about more than her having a bigger apartment.
Since the future Queen Consort is on maternity leave, she can’t be in the spotlight, and she feels powerless now that Meghan is showing up at multiple events and getting photographed with Queen Elizabeth. The source says that Kate is a competitive person, and her feud with Meghan is “nastier than ever.”
The fact that the former Suits actress accompanied the Queen to Cheshire, England less than a month after she married Prince Harry – and Her Majesty gifted Meghan pearl earrings for the trip – is proof to Kate that the new Duchess of Sussex is getting special treatment.
So, Kate and Meghan’s relationship has turned icy, and they are “barely on speaking terms,” and it is causing friction at the palace says the insider. After starting out as friends – and Kate teaching Meghan royal protocol – the Duchess of Cambridge has started to feel threatened by all the attention Meghan is getting. Now, she has stopped giving Meghan advice and has cut her out.
The insider also says that Kate has yet to confront her new sister-in-law, but Meghan knows “something is up.” However, it isn’t clear if she is going to deal with the situation right away. After all of the family drama Meghan had to deal with leading up to her wedding, the source says she “doesn’t need it with her friends.”
Prince William is currently on a historic trip to the Middle East while Prince Harry continues his royal duties with Markle by his side.
