It's another bold move in the "breakup" between the Cambridges and the Sussexes, and honestly, we're kind of wondering if these royal families have anything in common at all any more. Prince William and Kate Middleton just officially scrubbed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from the charity they used to run together, months after latter started their own foundation. 

  • The Fab Four no more?

    Even though the Duke and Duchess of Sussex split from the charity they ran with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in June, it's now been made official, as the Cambridges have filed to change its name. 

    The organization will officially be known as The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, changed from The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The change was confirmed on Tuesday.

  • It's not like we didn't see this one coming, but every step away from each other these couples take is sad.

    In June, the Buckingham Palace announced that Harry and Meghan would be heading up their own charity, which they named, Sussex Royal The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, or Sussex Royal for short. 

    At the time, the royal family issued a statement denying that the split had anything to do with the rumors that there was a rift between the couples. It said, "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are incredibly proud of what they have achieved together through The Royal Foundation. They are especially proud to have established a charity that has had, and will continue to have, significant long-lasting impact, changing lives for the better."

  • Since before Harry and Meghan even got married in May 2018, there has been speculation the couples were feuding.

    Honestly, it sounds like Harry and Meghan are just trying to make their own mark on the world. Besides, they have a little bit more flexibility in how they approach things, since it's highly unlikely Harry will ever become the monarch, now that William and Kate have three children of their own.

  • We suppose we couldn't expect these four to do everything together now that William and Harry each have their own families.

    Is it too much to ask for a Christmas card photo this year with all four cousins, though? We're dying to see Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, and little Archie Harrison in one adorable photo together. 

    We'll keep our fingers crossed!
