No one knows what’s going on between the royal couples. Rumours of their feud began a few months ago, when insiders said that Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton had a heated argument over Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress. Then Harry and Meghan moved out of Kensington Palace, as if it were absolutely crazy to want to have a space of your own, and it’s all gone downhill from there.

Royal biographer and columnist Katie Nicholl says that the stress between the royal couples began with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s engagement.

“William was quite concerned that the relationship had moved so quickly. And being close to Harry, probably the only person close enough, [William said], ‘This seems to be moving quickly, are you sure?’” Nicholl said on Kate vs Meghan: Princesses At Warthe very tacky TLC program that aired this past Tuesday.

“I think what was meant as well-intended brotherly advice just riled Harry. Harry is hugely protective of Meghan. He saw that as criticism. He interpreted that as his brother not really being behind this marriage, this union, and I don’t think things have been quite right ever since,” Nicholl continues.

News outlets love to speculate on the royals, especially when it comes to the siblings and their much discussed friendship. Gossip writers and royal sources love to portray William as the cool and collected older brother while Harry is still seen as the eternal child, despite the fact that he’s 34 years old and is about to be a dad. Maybe the brothers want to live apart from each other and that’s that? Just throwing out that crazy idea.
