Prince William and Kate Middleton and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are undoubtedly the two most talked-about couples in the world, making news for not only their day-to-day lives but also their relationships with each other.

In fact, a rumoured royal feud has dominated the headlines for over a year now, with the ongoing speculation around the rift coming to a head recently.

‘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,’ explained royal commentator Robert Jobson, going on to add that Meghan may also have upset Kate with her comments around her guest-editing Vogue’s September issue this year.

He continued: ‘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.’

Then came the reports that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were delaying their visit to the Queen in Balmoral until after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had returned, and the royal feud rumours started to run wild.

It’s hardly surprising therefore that news of William and Kate removing Harry and Meghan’s names from their charity has gone viral today. But what does it actually mean?

It was announced earlier this year the the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were leaving the Royal Foundation that they had previously shared with Prince William and Kate Middleton. The name was therefore changed this month, with documents from Companies House showing that Kate and Wills had changed their charity name to read just, 'The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’, removing the words 'and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex'.

Well, it does make sense, but still, come back Fab Four.
