The truth be­hind the Roy­als’ shock new feud

In­sid­ers claim bub­bling ten­sion be­tween Harry and Wil­liam es­ca­lated into a fiery row Royal ex­pert Katie Ni­choll re­veals Meghan and Kate have stopped ‘forc­ing’ their friend­ship Katie re­veals how Wil­liam had urged Harry to not rush into things with Meghan

They have been T pic­tured on nu­mer­ous oc­ca­sions look­ing friendly as a four­some, but last week the royal fam­ily was rocked by al­le­ga­tions of a sim­mer­ing feud be­tween Princes Wil­liam and Harry and their wives, Kate Mid­dle­ton and Meghan Markle.

It was re­vealed that Harry and Meghan were set to move out of their two-bed­room home at Kens­ing­ton Palace – where Kate and Wil­liam live with their three chil­dren – and into 10-bed­room Frog­more Cot­tage on the grounds of Wind­sor Cas­tle, ahead of the birth of their first baby.

Royal in­sid­ers claimed the move was due to ten­sion be­tween the cou­ples – in­sist­ing the broth­ers no longer re­lied on each other like they used to, and that Kate and Meghan are “dif­fer­ent peo­ple” who “don’t re­ally get on.”

Days later, it was claimed that Meghan had left Kate in tears dur­ing a “stress­ful” fit­ting for daugh­ter Char­lotte’s brides­maid dress ahead of her May wed­ding to Harry. The al­le­ga­tions came just months af­ter royal in­sid­ers re­vealed the Queen had re­fused Meghan her first choice of tiara for the big day, and “had words” with Harry over his “dif­fi­cult” bride.

It was also re­ported that Harry – who one source de­scribed as “rather dic­ta­to­rial” – had yelled at royal staff dur­ing wed­ding prepa­ra­tions, telling them, “What Meghan wants, Meghan gets”.

DIVA BE­HAV­IOUR

The rev­e­la­tions of ten­sion ap­peared in stark con­trast to when Kate and Meghan were pic­tured laugh­ing and chat­ting at Wim­ble­don in July.

But royal ex­pert and au­thor Katie Ni­choll ex­plains that while she doesn’t be­lieve there’s been an epic fall­out be­tween Kate and Meghan, the two women have re­alised they sim­ply couldn’t force a friend­ship any more.

She says, “Meghan en­joyed this grace pe­riod of about six months fol­low­ing her wed­ding where it ap­peared she could do no wrong. But there have been whis­pers about di­va­like be­hav­iour for a while, and I think the re­ports about the Queen and the tiara row ap­peared to open the flood­gates to more stories.

“These re­ports of ten­sion are in­ter­est­ing, be­cause while the Palace haven’t con­firmed them, they also haven’t de­nied them. And I al­ways say there’s no smoke with­out fire. I
