In a Rare Move, Kensington Place Publicly Denies Story About the Royals

In recent weeks, speculation about Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton's relationship-specifically whether or not the two women are friends-has been hard to ignore.

Royal family observers said this denial was a rare intervention from the palace which does not usually respond to rumours about the personal lives of royalty.

In one of the most recent stories regarding the so-called feud, United Kingdom newspaper the Sun reported a royal source telling them that Meghan and Kate had a tiff ahead of the former's royal wedding in May.

Sources say that Kensington Palace has now launched a search to find out who the "mole" that is feeding these stories to the media might be.

Although brief, this unusual statement to the press suggests the royals are growing exhausted of the negative press.

Claims suggesting Harry and William haven't been seeing eye to eye have been doing the rounds online, however, ET Canada can now confirm the couples will all spend the festive period together in Norfolk. But, Markle was so stressed out, bossy, and emotional during Princess Charlotte's bridesmaid dress fitting that Kate ended up in tears.

It's always been kind of a pragmatic relationship regardless of who's been in the White House. Pressure has been mounting for the U.S. to end its support for the conflict.

An impeccable royal source revealed the latest clash also happened before Meghan and Harry's Royal Wedding in May.

Last Christmas, it was also reported that Kate confronted Meghan because she was being "downright rude" in front of the royals.

A spokesperson for Kensington Palace has however denied this. Hary and Meghan are due to move from Kensington Palace to Frogmore Cottage at Windsor early next year ahead of the arrival of their first baby.

On Saturday, the British publication ran with another story that Kate and Meghan had an explosive row over the treatment of the Duchess of Cambridge's staff.

And while I guess she has a point, attending a royal wedding and being friendly with the queen sounds VERY awesome, and I would not be able to keep cool as well as Carole clearly has been.

Speaking to Good Housekeeping magazine, Mrs Obama, who is promoting her memoir Becoming, said she thought Markle was in too much of a hurry to do things her way.
