Royal conspiracy theorists, get ready to start theorizing. According to reports, another split between the Cambridges and Sussexes is happening this week -- and it's a big one. Not long after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle moved to Frogmore Cottage, effectively splitting the house -- and the Instagram account -- they shared with Kate Middleton and Prince William, they're reportedly breaking away from their joint charity, the Royal Foundation. 

  • According to Page Six, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are officially exiting the charity organization on Wednesday, June 19.

    Apparently, Harry and Meghan are breaking away from the Royal Foundation, which Prince William, Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry founded in 2011, after a super tense board meeting.

    "Everybody is massively stressed" about the split, a source told Page Six. "It's not an easy time right now at the foundation."

  • Since rumblings have started, the palace never confirmed the split was happening.

    However, a palace statement did say that changes were imminent. 

    "We announced earlier this year the Royal Foundation was reviewing its structures," the statement said. "Any announcement regarding this review will be made in due course."

    Well, OK then. 

  • If the restructuring does happen (which it sounds like it will!), it will be the second major "split" between the Cambridges and Sussexes in the past few months.

    As every royal fan knows, Harry and Meghan left Kensington Palace for Frogmore Cottage before their son, Archie Harrison, was born in May. 

    Although the move was surprising to most, it was a carefully thought-out decision that had approval from Queen Elizabeth. 

    "[The queen] has agreed to the creation of a new household for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, following their marriage in May last year," the palace said in a statement before the move. "The household, which will be created with the support of the queen and The Prince of Wales, will be established in the spring. This long-planned move will ensure that permanent support arrangements for the duke and duchess’ work are in place as they start their family and move to their official residence at Frogmore Cottage."

  • Even though, officially, the separation between the Cambridges and Sussexes is for the sake of their charities and the work they carry out, there has been some hard-to-ignore gossip.

    Amidst rumors of a feud between William and Harry, a royal expert recently said "it's absolutely the case that the brothers did fall out" around the time Harry began dating Meghan. 

    Things right now, however, are supposedly on the up and up between the Cambridges and Sussexes, thanks to the royal family's newest addition. 

    A source recently said that Harry is turning to William for parenting advice and that baby Archie's arrival "has probably really helped to improve the relationship."

    So, whether the split is for their organizations or because the foursome haven't been getting on well, it sounds like things are better now than they have been in the past year -- and added separation will only help heal things even more. 

    Come on, guys. We want the Fab Four back in effect!
