Battle of the Royals! A Timeline of Duchess Meghan and Duchess Kate’s Rumored Feud

It’s no secret that Duchess Kate (née Middleton) and Duchess Meghan (née Markle) are not exactly the best of friends ever since the U.S. native officially joined the royal family in May 2018. In fact, there have been rumors going around for years that the two are not on great terms. Meghan, 38, and Kate, 37, are both beautiful, sophisticated women — both are mere commoners — and since they are so close in age, the public thought the two would get along so well. Although neither one of them has officially addressed their alleged feud, sometimes their body language in photos says it all.

However, Prince Harry, 35, recently got candid about his relationship with his older brother, Prince William, 37, and revealed it’s not always smooth sailing between the siblings. “Part of this role and part of this job, this family being under the pressure that it’s under, inevitably, you know, stuff happens. We are brothers, we will always be brothers,” the redheaded royal said in an ITV documentary called Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, which aired in the U.K. on October 20. “We are certainly on different paths at the moment, but I will always be there for him, and as I know, he will always be there for me.”

He continued, “We don’t see each other as much as used to because we are so busy, but you know, I love him dearly, and the majority of this stuff [in the press] is created out of nothing, but as you know, as brothers, you have good days, you have bad days.” In May, Harry and Meghan decided to split from the royal foundation they set up with William and Kate, which raised some eyebrows.

So, what started the tension between everyone? In the documentary, Kate v. Meghan: Princesses at War?, Vanity Fair’s reporter Katie Nicholl said William was worried that his brother was too swept up with Meghan. “William was quite concerned that the relationship had moved so quickly. And being close to Harry, probably the one person close enough to say to Harry, ‘This seems to be moving quickly, are you sure?’” she said.
