We're going to go ahead and file this one under Things We Don't Like. Not long after news broke that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are moving out of Kensington Palace to the Frogmore House estate, reports are trickling in, claiming the move may be due to tensions between Meghan and Kate Middleton. Although we're really hoping this isn't the case, where there's smoke, there's usually fire. 

  • When it was announced recently that Harry and Meghan would be leaving Kensington Palace, royal fans were shocked.

    Naturally, though, everyone chalked the move up to Meghan being pregnant and the couple wanting more space for when the baby arrives. 

    That may not be the case, however.

  • A source recently told the Daily Mail that the reason behind Meghan's 20-mile move could have more to do with separating herself from Kate Middleton than wanting more space.

    "Kate and Meghan are very different people. They don’t really get on," the insider said. 

    The Daily Beast reached out to the palace media team shortly after the story broke, but, according to the publication, it received a "curt 'no comment'" from staff.


  • From their style to their interactions with the press, it's no secret that the duchesses are incredibly different -- but up until this point, it seemed like they were getting along.

    Apparently, though, it may have all been a facade. 

    Not long before news of the Sussexes's move broke, there were reports that Prince Harry and Prince William would be going their separate ways for the most part -- in other words, the "Fab Four" weren't going to be making many more appearances together. Initially, a lot of this was credited to the fact that Prince William is set to inherit the throne one day and has more responsibilities to tend to leading up to such a massive responsibility. 

    Now, though, sources are saying that the differences between Meghan and Kate could be a factor as well.

  • The Daily Beast reports that although William and Kate are quite popular with palace staff, Meghan can be "brusque and has been dismayed by British levels of service."

    Yikes. 

    It was also reported that before the royal wedding, Queen Elizabeth had to have a talking-to with Prince Harry after there was a dispute about which tiara Meghan was going to wear. In a fit of anger, Harry supposedly yelled to his staff, “What Meghan wants, she gets,” weeks before the wedding. 

    The royal family has taken to Meghan in one aspect: her impressive work ethic. In a gross juxtaposition from Kate Middleton's reduced pregnancy schedule and maternity leave, Meghan just completed a 16-day tour of Australia while pregnant. So yeah. It's safe to say the Queen is pleased. 

  • Hopefully, the rumors about Kate and Meghan being at odds with one another aren't true, but ultimately, it's doubtful we'll ever get the full story. 

    For now, we're just going to go on believing Harry and Meghan's move is for space's sake -- and that the two duchesses are thick as thieves.
