    Over the past few months, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have suffered an endless stream of online bullying, mostly involving the rumoured feud between the Duchesses.

    The two women were rumoured to have fallen out for several reasons, with the most reported being Meghan allegedly ‘making Kate cry’ during Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress fitting, her decision to relocate to Frogmore Cottage instead of becoming Kate and Wills’ neighbours, and reportedly Meghan’s treatment of her staff.

    The speculation grew so loud that Kensington Palace was forced to step in to shut down the rumours and the royal family even issued a set of social media guidelines to end the online abuse.

    Since it was reported that the highly publicised feud was actually nothing to do with the Duchesses but instead their husbands, Princes William and Harry, Kate and Meghan have seemingly been doing everything they can to iron out any tensions.

    This was evident over the weekend, when the two Duchesses attended the women’s Wimbledon final together on Saturday, with Kate’s sister Pippa.

    But it has since emerged that the two might actually be closer than we thought, with fans missing a sweet moment between the Duchesses at the tennis.

    According to a Wimbledon insider via People, Kate actually stepped in to comfort her sister-in-law after Meghan’s close pal Serena Williams’ crushing defeat by Simona Halep.

    ‘Kate put her hand out and rubbed Meghan’s back to console her,’ the source explained, putting an end to the royal feud rumours once and for all.

    Well, that’s lovely.
