Kate & Megs on the Outs?

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - FRONT PAGE - ANNE MARIE SCAN­LON

Royal news now. The bit be­tween “the wed­ding” and “the royal birth” has tra­di­tion­ally been filled with tales of roy­als at hand­bags. And as tra­di­tion de­mands, the tabloids are full of “the feud” be­tween Kate and Meghan, and the wedge they’ve ap­par­ently driven be­tween Wills and Harry.

Whether or not there is any truth to the ru­mours, it would be sur­pris­ing if Kate & Megs were best buds.

They are two very dif­fer­ent women with lit­tle in com­mon. Kate has spent her en­tire adult life as a royal WAG. Meghan, mean­while, was very much the star of her own show. To sud­denly be­come part of a ‘peck­ing or­der’, and not at the top ei­ther, must be dif­fi­cult.

Then there’s the fam­i­lies. The mid­dle-class Mid­dle­tons have held their re­spec­tive tongues and (apart from Un­cle Gary), kept the side up. The Markles, on the other hand, can­not shut up and could lower the tone on The Jerry Springer Show.
