A new chapter in the young royals’ supposed long-running feud may be underway as the foursome’s joint charitable efforts will reportedly soon be scrapped.

The potential split comes just 15 months after Prince William and Kate Middleton were joined by a then-engaged Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at a Q&A forum for the princes’ Royal Foundation.

The couples were soon dubbed the ‘fab four’ by both the media and royal watchers, excited by the high-profile sit-down - which was originally slated to be an annual event.

But now, the couples will pursue their charities separately - just a year after Meghan officially joined the fold.

However, royal insiders claim the split won’t mark the complete end of the Cambridge and Sussexes working together and they still plan to occasionally collaborate on smaller projects.

“The forum was going to be an annual event and last year’s was supposed to be the first of many,” a source told The Sun. “It’s very sad it’s going to end like this.”

Prince William and Prince Harry started the Royal Foundation together in 2009 as a way to channel all of their charitable efforts into one stream.

Kate and Meghan came on board following their weddings in 2011 and 2018 respectively.

Among the original trio’s (William, Harry and Kate) most profile campaigns included Heads Together and Harry’s prized Invictus Games, which was held in Sydney last year.

But amid speculated tension between both the brothers and their wives, much has since changed for the in-laws — including a split in their households earlier this year.

The first indication of tension began late last year and last week escalated to claims the couples are challenging each other to ‘game of one-upmanship’ in a bid to be the royal family’s stars.
