The royal family is crumbling one duchess at a time! It seems that Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton‘s jealousy-fueled battle has gotten so out of control that Prince Harry and Prince William have been left with no choice but to intervene. “The boys are discussing whether to stage an intervention in order to get Meghan and Kate to make up,” a palace insider revealed to In Touch exclusively. Yikes. 

To make matters worse, Queen Elizabeth is very much aware of the situation and frankly, the 92-year-old monarch won’t stand for it. “She said something had to be done. She wants to resolve the issue once and for all. The last thing the queen wants is a full-blown crisis at the palace,” the insider explained.

Question is, now that Meghan’s newly-minted royal glow has worn off, why can’t the situation with Kate be resolved? Surely, they can both share the spotlight, right? Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Meghan knows it’s only a matter of time before Kate, who is a mom to George, 5, Charlotte, 3, and 4-month-old Louis, has the ultimate upper hand. 

After all, as the wife of Prince William — the second in line for the throne behind his father, Prince Charles — Kate will become queen. “Meghan can’t help but be jealous,” said the insider. “She’s lying if she says she isn’t. She knows that one day Kate will be reaping all the rewards of that title.”

Despite the fact Kate is slated to one day be queen, she still has her own insecurities. “Meghan learned everything she knows from Kate. But since the wedding, Kate feels like Meghan has barely made any effort with her and is more interested in impressing the queen,” an additional source told In Touch

“To be fair, Meghan has been busy. But Kate feels like she’s put a lot of effort into their friendship and hasn’t gotten much in return,” the source concluded. Hm, sounds like Harry and William should do more than just that discuss that intervention. In fact, they should get it on the royal calendar… ASAP!
