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, both 37, 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 at Trooping the Colour this weekend, the Queen’s official birthday celebrations, as Kate and Meghan shared a carriage in the parade, sitting opposite each other and accompanied by Prince Harry and Camilla, Duchess of Cambridge.
Throughout the parade, the sisters-in-law could be seen talking and laughing together, putting an end to all feud rumours once and for all.
Well, that’s a relief.
