It's complicated.

Are Kate Middleton And Meghan Markle Really Fighting? Instagram

Rumors have sprung that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are feuding — again!

Gossip follows the Royal Family like it's their job. Word on tabloid street is that the Duchesses are not on good terms, but is it true? Kate and Meghan are married to Royal brothers William and Harry and have been rumored to be fighting on multiple occasions. 

“Kate and Meghan are very different people," a source told the Daily Mail. "They don’t really get on.”


Prince Harry and Meghan are moving from their Kensington Palace home, where they are neighbors to William and Kate, to the 10-bedroom Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor Castle grounds, The Sun first reported, and the latest tea is that it's because the in-laws are fighting. It is reportedly so bad that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex felt the need to move!



On top of the move, there have been reports that Meghan brought Kate to tears at a bridesmaid dress fitting for Princess Charlotte as well as rumors that the Queen warned Harry about his wife's "attitude" prior to their wedding.

How much truth is behind the chatter?

Not much, it turns out. Harry and Meghan were gifted the Frogmore Cottage by the Queen herself and are moving for the sake of their baby due in April. They want to raise their little one as "normal" as possible.

“It would be a real shame to Harry and William if their wives don’t get on, but it’s quite a big leap of speculation,” said royal biographer Duncan Larcombe. "There is no particular incident or occasion where they didn’t get on. It is a very broad claim to be making, and is likely just gossip from palace staff.”


However, he did acknowledge the fact that the two women are very different.

There is a little bit of truth the royal feud rumors, although the suggested unease has to do with William and Harry instead. A source told Vanity Fair that the tension between the Sussexes and Cambridges are due to the brothers not getting along, not their wives.

“Kate and Meghan are very different people and they don’t have a lot in common but they have made an effort to get along,” the source explained. “Any issues are between the brothers.”


“The initial plan was for Harry and Meghan to move out of their cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace and into one of the main apartments," a royal source told the outlet. "But there has been a bit of tension between the brothers."

"Now Harry and Meghan don’t want to live next to William and Kate and want to strike out on their own," the source continues. "They need more room and hope Frogmore Cottage will be ready in time for when they have the baby.”

Harry and Meghan are expecting their first child in the spring, which is the real reason behind the move, multiple Daily Mail sources have said, trashing the rumors it is because of "tension."


"While there are some tensions behind the scenes, Kate is pretty unflappable and nothing has become bad enough to make Harry and Meghan want to move out," a source dished to Daily Mail. "People are genuinely pleased to see them so happy."

So Kate and Meghan aren't BFFs. Big whoop! Most in-laws aren't, to be honest. According to multiple outlets, the two just aren't each other's cup of tea and are certainly not rivals at each other's throats.

"The story behind Harry and Meghan’s move to Frogmore Cottage? Harry and Meghan spreading their wings. No big fallout but Kate and Meghan not close," the Express' royal correspondent Richard Palmer wrote on Twitter
