The clue we all missed in the alleged Meghan and Kate royal rift

1 min read

Turns out the signs were there a while ago.

Rumours of a rift between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton have been flying left and right over the last couple of weeks, so much so that even Kensington Palace were forced to issue out a rare official statement denying everything.

While the official word is that Meghan and Kate are cool with each other (Prince William a little less so), all these rumours recontextualises a moment between the Royal Fab Four earlier this year. Let's take a trip down memory lane, shall we?

Harry, Meghan, William, and Kate made their first official royal engagement as a quartet at the Royal Foundation Forum back in February.

During the well-received appearance, the interviewer asked the four royals: "Working together as family, do you ever have disagreements about things?"

After a little awkward laughter and glances to each other, William responds with a slightly sheepish "Ooooh, yeah" before Harry clarifies that they have "healthy" disagreements.

Now this all came off as a lighthearted joke at the time, which was certainly how everyone took it to be.

But in light of all these recent Meghan vs Kate beef rumours, this moment appears to have foreshadowed all the speculation that's going on right now.

Aside from the short response from Kensington Palace, Meghan and Kate have kept tight-lipped on the rumours.

Hopefully this all turns out to be a massive nothingburger and all this buzz about the Royal Fab Four is nothing more than white noise.

Here's hoping to a big and happy Royal family Christmas to them all!
