Despite Feud Rumors, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle Will Be Spending Their Second Christmas Together
Despite all of the rumors of a supposed feud between the royal sisters-in-law, it seems that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle will be spending Christmas together, not apart.
For a while, the tabloids were floating the idea that that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge would be celebrating Christmas with Middleton’s family instead of with the queen at Sandringham.
However, according to The Daily Beast, both the Sussexes' and the Cambridges' attendance at the queen’s holiday festivities have already been confirmed, thanks to off-the-record briefings from palace sources.
Apparently, a confirmation this early regarding the royals’ Christmas plans is not commonplace, but the palace is hoping to quiet all of the feud drama circulating around the royal family. The news that the sisters-in-law will be spending their second Christmas together comes just after Kensington Palace shot down a claim by The Sun about a reported pre-royal wedding falling out between Markle and Middleton.
At this point, we don’t blame the palace’s need for damage control, especially given that the rumored conflict between the Duchesses has since fueled rumors that Prince Harry and Prince William are also at war. The decision to spend Christmas together as the Royal Fab Four signals to the public that everything is fine! Dandy! Even merry! At least, for now.
