People need to calm down. After photos were posted of baby Arhie’s christening over the weekend, some people took issue with the earrings Kate Middleton was wearing to the ceremony.
As Cosmopolitan points out, the Duchess of Cambridge chose a pair of pearl drop earrings that Princess Diana wore to Prince Harry’s christening back in 1984 as an homage to her late mother-in-law. But since Princess Di is also Meghan’s MIL, some people think Kate was trying to upstage the Duchess of Sussex.

This morning, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was christened in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle at an intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son. They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment. Their Royal Highnesses feel fortunate to have enjoyed this day with family and the godparents of Archie. Their son, Archie, was baptised wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown which has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years. The original Royal Christening Robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. It was subsequently worn for generations of Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren until 2004, when The Queen commissioned this handmade replica, in order for the fragile historic outfit to be preserved, and for the tradition to continue.

Here’s a closer look:
Exactly. When Meghan attended Louis christening she wore olive green and blended in the background so Kate and L could have their moment that's all Kate had to do. It would have been gracious if she let meg borrow earrings for the day

Others who are obviously on TEAM KATE pointed out that Meghan didn’t exactly blend in at Prince Louis’s christening.
She didn't blend in at Louis christening. She stuck out like a sore thumb. Everyone else wore pale blue, pale pink and off white but she wore GREEN!!!
She announced her pregnancy at another royals wedding. What is the matter with you?

And who knows? Maybe Kate offered the earrings to Meghan and she turned them down? Let’s all come down, people. Everyone loves a royal feud, but this is turning into some Dateline: Real Life Mysteries nonsense.
