    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry officially split from Kate Middleton and Prince William this year to start their own royal household, something that has prompted rumours of feuds and fallouts, with the public fearing for the future of the Fab Four, and particularly, Harry and William’s relationship.

    The two brothers were rumoured to have had a falling out recently, all stemming from a reported hesitance to accept Harry and Meghan’s fast-paced relationship, from William’s side.

    The speculation only grew louder when the two royal couples split from each other on Instagram just months ago, something that millennials in particular took to mean that there had been a serious falling out.

    Poor royals! Who said that the rumour mill was dead?

    This morning, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was christened in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle at an intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son. They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment. Their Royal Highnesses feel fortunate to have enjoyed this day with family and the godparents of Archie. Their son, Archie, was baptised wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown which has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years. The original Royal Christening Robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. It was subsequently worn for generations of Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren until 2004, when The Queen commissioned this handmade replica, in order for the fragile historic outfit to be preserved, and for the tradition to continue.

    While some insisted the split was simply down to succession, there were still rumours of feuds with a new detail going viral after baby Archie’s Christening, something that the royal couple insisted on being a private affair, even refusing to release the list of Godparents.

    This is reportedly what caused the tension.

    According to a source via Us Weekly, ‘The queen accepted Harry and Meghan’s decision to keep the event private’ but it was reportedly Prince William and Kate Middleton who ‘weren’t happy about it.’

    According to the source, ‘William thinks his brother is going overboard keeping Archie out of the spotlight,’ something that has reportedly increased tensions.

    Come back Fab Four.
