By now, we've probably all heard some version of the rumor that Prince William cheated on Kate Middleton with one of the couple's friends. Now, there's been no confirmation of whether or not the stories are true, but we have to admit that it sometimes seems things aren't always peachy between Kate and Will. Naturally, every marriage has ups and downs, and royal couples are no exception. Even before they were married, Kate and Will went through a rough patch, and now it seems they might be going through another one. Although, we are really hoping the rumors are just Internet naysayers doing what they do best.

We do have to say, however, that Kate and Will have been looking rather tense over the last couple of months. We might be able to throw that up to them having a 1-year-old at home and being sleep-deprived, but some people are wondering if there is indeed merit to the cheating rumors. Whatever the reason, it's important to remember that no marriage is perfect ... even for the duke and duchess

It could just be that it's nearly impossible for the couple to be smiling and happy for the cameras all the time, not that something is going wrong in the Cambridge household. If the rumors are indeed true, we're sure that Kate and Prince William are doing their best to work it out. And because we can't help but wonder what's possiblly going on between these two, here are 20 times that Kate and Will seemed a little tense next to each other. 

Pay attention to their body language!

  • Matching Grimaces

    Oof ... those are not happy looks. We didn't know two people could look this annoyed at each other. Trouble must be brewing in the Cambridge household, because those no way these expressions are just coming out of nowhere. 

  • Leaving Kate Behind

    William does not look at all interested in helping Kate walk down those stairs ... and she's in heels, nonetheless! Kate looks unbothered, but we're sure the duchess couldn't have been to happy about this snub from her husband.

  • Leaving Will Out

    No love for Will -- even on Christmas! From the looks of this photo, it seems as if Kate, Meghan, and Harry had their own little group of three ... leaving Prince William behind in the dust. At least he had Prince Charles to keep him company.

  • Turning Away

    Sure, Kate and Prince William are both smiling, but it's important to notice that they are not smiling at each other. Plus, the duchess is straight up turning away from her husband, which can't be a good sign, right?

  • Touch of Reassurance

    Well, we have to give Prince William points for trying! His wife looks mildly annoyed at him, so he knows the best thing to do is to give her a little touch on the back. This seems to be Will's go-to when he's gotten on Kate's nerves.

  • Smoothing Things Over

    Kate looks mildly annoyed, and it seems as if William is trying desperately to smooth things over with the gentle touch on his wife's back. We can only hope it worked, because the duchess certainly does not look happy.

  • Red Carpet Tension

    Red carpets should be joyous, happy events, but Kate and Will just look like all they want to do is go home. We know these two aren't known for showing massive amounts of PDA, but there is something off about the way they are standing next to each other.

  • Stiff Body Language

    Okay, could these two look more stiff while sitting next to each other? You'd think that sitting next to someone you've been married to for eight years wouldn't result in this type of body language, but here we go.

  • Straight Faces

    Although it may not seem like it, Kate and Will are not always all smiles and laughs. Even though they know the cameras are on them 24/7, even the Cambridges can't keep up appearances all the time. We don't blame them!

  • Sass From Kate

    Will got hit with that head tilt from Kate, and that can't mean anything good if you ask us. Kate's expression says, "Nope, we're talking about this later." And Wills looks very concerned.

  • Date Night Gone Wrong

    Kate and Will have walked their fair share of red carpets, and although we're sure it never gets old, it does seem they weren't really into this particular event. Every couple has their ups and downs, but unfortunately for Kate and Will, they can't skip out on royal events when they have a fight.

  • Smiling Through the Tension

    If we had to guess, Will just said something he thought was hilarious, and Kate just wasn't having it. Hang in there, Kate; the dad jokes are never-ending at this point.

  • Tense Looks

    Will does not look at all pleased to be out in Wales with his wife, and it looks like Kate knows it. No smiles coming from these two Cambridges. 

    It's all about that body language, folks!

  • "Are the Cameras Gone Yet?"

    We can't even imagine having to live most of our lives in front of the cameras, and it seems as if Kate and Will may have had enough. Honestly, we don't blame them. Whether or not rumors are true, the Cambridges don't really have much privacy ... ever.

  • Staring Straight Ahead

    No loving looks coming from these two. Plus, it's easy to notice that Kate and Will are not touching at all. Let's just hope this was a serious event, and not just the Cambridges being annoyed with each other.

  • Not Interested

    Sorry, Will ... Kate is certainly not interested in whatever her husband has to say. The poor duchess just wants to watch some rock star tennis. 

  • Not Looking at Each Other

    We know Kate and Will don't always have to be looking at each other, but there was a time when these two couldn't help but sneak a look at one another. Nowadays, the couple seems much more stoic than they used to be. Does this mean trouble in royal paradise? We hope not.

  • Forced Smile

    We would not want to be on the receiving end of this type of smile from Kate Middleton. She looks half-annoyed and half like she's judging William pretty hardcore. We can only wonder what he did to deserve this look.

  • Pursed Lips

    Kate and Will have been married for quite a while now, so it's not at all surprising that they would have similar "annoyed" expressions. Their matching pursed lips are pretty impressive, but we can't help but wonder what caused these two to look so irked.

  • Holding It In

    It may just be us, but it sure does look as if Kate and Will are holding in some sort of argument. Wait until you get back to Kensington Palace, Cambridges.
