Wait, what?

Prince William and Kate Middleton are one of the most talked-about couples in the world, with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children making news recently for their hilarious trip to the Isle of Wight for a yacht race.

It was their upcoming summer holiday to Balmoral, one of the Queen’s residences, however that made news this week, as it was reported that the Cambridge family may be delaying their family trip to the Queen’s estate for a very controversial reason.

Why? According to royal commentator Robert Jobson, the Duke and Duchess are delaying their trip to Balmoral with their three children until the Sussex family return.

There has been ongoing speculation around a rift between the Cambridges and the Sussexes this year, but according to Jobson, it has come to a head recently after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s recent comments.

‘The Duke of Sussex's latest “woke” outburst, in which he declared that he and Meghan plan to have two children “maximum” in a bid to save the planet, may well have irked the Cambridges, who already have three,’ Jobson explained, going on to add that Meghan may also have upset Kate with her comments around her guest-editing Vogue's September issue this year.

‘The Duchess insisted it would have been "boastful" to appear on the cover - but failed to mention that Kate became the fashion bible's cover star two years previously.’

Will the two couples run into each other in Balmoral? We’ll have to wait and see.
