We hope so!

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 this month, when the two Duchesses attended the women’s Wimbledon final together, with Kate even comforting her sister-in-law after Meghan’s close pal Serena Williams’ crushing defeat by Simona Halep.

Then, this week, another Kate and Meghan detail emerged, with a source explaining to Hello! Magazine that the two women are legit friends.

‘Kate was a great source of support to Meghan in the days leading up to Archie’s birth,’ the source explained to the magazine, via the Daily Mail. 'Despite reports of a rift, they are family and have a really lovely friendship. Their relationship has certainly evolved over time and they have become closer since Meghan’s wedding.’

The source continued: ‘They talk and text regularly. They have more in common, and Kate has wanted to make sure Meghan has felt welcome into the family.’

Well, that’s lovely.
