The reason why Kate and Meghan's relationship has strengthened

Rumours of a feud between Kate and Meghan began to surface at the end of last year, but now reports suggest things are on the mend between the pair.

Although it’s since been claimed that tensions were actually between brothers William and Harry, the Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex have also been pitted against each other.

Commentators said the two women had very little in common, but it seems since Meghan has become a mother to baby Archie, she and Kate have much more of a connection.

“There is a sense of [Meghan and Kate’s] relationship strengthening,” a royal source told People. 

“They’re each a little more relaxed. They have more in common now.”

The duchesses attended women’s final at Wimbledon last weekend and were spotted chatting as they watched the action from the royal box.

When Meghan’s friend Serena Williams lost the match, Kate reportedly rubbed her back to console her.

The royal women also watched their husbands play in a polo match just days before. Kate brought along her three children Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, four, and one-year-old Prince Louis, while Meghan cradled a two-month-old Archie.

And when Meghan made her first public appearance after the birth of baby Archie at Trooping the Colour, she shared the same carriage as husband Harry, Kate and the Duchess of Cornwall.

Their relationship has also been helped by the fact the Sussexes moved out of Kensington Palace to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor in April.

The source added that the move has provided distance that has helped the foursome reconnect, “allowing them more time to be like family” rather than colleagues.

Meghan and Harry officially split from their joint foundation with the Cambridges last month.
