Here’s everything you need to know…

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have officially split from Kate Middleton and Prince William to start their own royal household, something that has prompted rumours of feuds and fallouts, with the public fearing for the future of the Fab Four.

The speculation only rose this week when Meghan and Harry and Kate and Wills split from each other on Instagram, something that any millennial will know, is serious. But as it turns out, the household split is reportedly down to succession, with both princes having to separate to prepare for their future royal roles, with William in line to become King.


While royal fans have been expressing their sadness at the end of the Fab Four, palace insiders have explained that it never could have worked in the long run, opening up recently to People.

‘It was only going to work until they married — and it went on a while longer than perhaps was originally thought,’ a palace insider reportedly told People about Prince Harry and Prince William’s partnership.

Another source continued: ‘There was power in that unity and great strength in the foursome, but I see why [the divide] is happening, There is always that tension: trying to do the PR thing and then realizing that they are just real people. They want their own place and their own things.’

No matter what, something that all sources have agreed on is that there’s no cause for concern around Harry and William’s relationship in the long run.

‘There is never any doubt that they will be there for each other 100 percent and support each other when it matters,’ the source reassured. ‘Maybe they’ll come back together a little later. It’s another stage in the growing up. Sometimes you have to break away in order to come back.’

Well, that’s that.
