William, Kate, Meghan and Harry attend at the Church of St Mary Magdalene on the Sandringham estate on December 25, 2018.
”It’s just clickbait,” a source close to both duchesses told CNN.
The pressure to produce ever more dramatic headlines to drive traffic is intense, perhaps even more so when it comes to Meghan than when Kate Mi
ddleton entered the royal family. Back then, the running theme was how Kate came from working-class roots.
So, is there any truth to the rift? The duchesses were in their 30s when they met, and already had their own esta
blished, close-knit groups of friends. And while the pair may not hang out together or call each other regularly, the so
urce tells CNN, they are friendly and they text one another — linked as they are by a common bond.
The alleged rift has also been cited as the reasons Meghan and Harry
are moving out of Kensington Palace and plan to establish their own office. But CNN’s sou
rce said this is more to do with Harry wanting greater independence, and William needing his own team in pre
paration for so-called “reign change,” when Charles will become King and William will step up as the Prince of Wales.
