They’ve been dodging rumours of a royal feud for months now and new reports claim that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle talked things out at Christmas dinner.

According to reports, the 37-year-old Duchess of Sussex and 26-year-old Duchess of Cambridge couldn’t avoid each other with the whole royal family around at Sandringham.

And it seems they had a lot to get off their minds, with Kate reportedly calling Meghan out for ‘using her’ since she joined the family.

“Kate opened up about feeling like Meghan had used her to climb the royal ladder,” an insider told US Weekly.

“Being under the same roof meant that they couldn’t avoid each other.”

Claims that Meghan and Kate are a loggerheads are rife amongst palace staff, with the feud being blamed for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s impending move from Kensington Palace to Frogmore Cottage.

Then, it was reported that the driving force behind the frostiness between the Duchesses is actually coming from their husbands.

Prince Harry reportedly accused his brother of trying to ‘wreck his relationship’ with Meghan after Wills voiced concerns about the former Suits star when the couple first started dating.

And it’s claimed Prince Harry is at the end of his tether about the drama, with a royal insider saying the rumours are putting ‘pressure’ on his relationship with Meghan.

However, the duo put on a united front on Christmas Day as they made their way to church.

It’s the first time we’ve seen the Fab Four together since the Remembrance Day services in November and local well-wishers gathered to greet the royal couples.

If there was any hint of the rumoured rift between them, it certainly didn’t show as they laughed and chatted together.
