Kensington Palace Makes Rare Statement On Meghan Markle And Kate Middleton's 'Feud'

Kensington Palace has broken its silence on the reported 'feud' between the Duchesses of Sussex and Cambridge, after it was claimed that Meghan Markle 'berated' one of Kate Middleton's aides causing tension between the pair.

The palace very rarely (if ever) comments on the tabloid gossip fluttering around the royal family, but it seems like it's had enough of all the stories and addressed the situation head on.

In a week of constant chatter surrounding the royals, The Sun reported that the two had clashed over the former Suits actress' tone with Kate's team.

An insider told the paper: "Her and Kate fell out when she b*ll*cked' Kate's staff." Kate is said to have told Meghan: "That's unacceptable, they're my staff and I speak to them."

But shortly after the tabloid reports emerged, Kensington Palace shut down the claims, and told The Mirror: "This never happened."

This comes after other publications suggested Kate had been reduced to tears over Princess Charlotte's "stressful" dress fitting ahead of Meghan and Prince Harry's nuptials earlier this year.

The so-called 'frictions' between the pair have apparently put 'strain' on Prince William and Prince Harry, who have always been close.

Adding fuel to the fire, Harry and Meghan are thought to be relocating to Windsor, meaning they will be over 40 miles away from the Cambridges at Kensington Palace.

Other outlets claimed they'd also be spending the festive period apart for the first time.

But amid the constant reports, it has now been suggested that they will be spending Christmas together at Sandringham after all in a "show of solidarity".

"Reports regarding Christmas are wrong," a source told The Daily Mail. "Everyone is in Norfolk this year."

Meghan apparently feels that the British press are 'out to get her', and while she is aware of the stories being shared, she does her best to ignore them.
