    Sure, being a royal has its advantages – the fashion, the tiaras, the castles – but it definitely also has its drawbacks, from the end of privacy and safety fears to the dreaded rumour mill.

    No one knows this more than the two millennial Duchesses, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.

    The two women, both 37, have endured an endless stream of online bullying since becoming royals, particularly around the continuous speculation of a feud between the two women, something that according to sources has been blown way out of proportion.

    This week, the two royal women showed that they weren’t fazed by the rumours, making their first royal appearance together this year.

    The Duchesses joined their husbands and other senior royals at a party last night to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Prince Charles’ Investiture as Prince of Wales.

    While the two women didn’t arrive at the event together, held at Buckingham Palace by the Queen, they were seen laughing together during the party.

    This comes after the news that Kate Middleton is reportedly throwing Meghan Markle a second baby shower in London.

    So are the Fab Four coming to an end? Judging by this week, it doesn’t look like it.

    Well that’s a relief.
