And the fault may all be down to the stark differences between Duchess Kate and Duchess Meghan. The two sister-in-laws Kate and Meghan may seem to have many things in common on the surface of things, however, in reality, their 'similarities' could very well end at their own ties to the Royal Family.
Fans of the "Fab Four" (aka William, Kate, Harry and Meghan) have recently been torn apart by news which suggests that there may actually be some hostility brewing between our two favorite Royal couples. I know, right? Tragic.
According to a UK news outlet, there has in fact been "a falling-out" amongst the two famously close brothers William and Harry due to rising tensions between their wives (Gosh, always those darn wives isn't it!?)
As more and more reports emerge of Meghan and Harry's move from Kensington Palace to Frogmore Cottage (which is more than a whole twenty miles away from their in-laws), the situation does not look rosy whatsoever. Royal Family fans have begun to wonder if the "big rift" between Meghan and Kate could be a consequence of their fundamental differences as individuals.
...Or, y'know, maybe Harry and Meghan just don't want to live so close to their parents/in-laws? Which isn't totally abnormal. ANYWAY... I digress...
May as well start with the biggest and most crucial dissimilarity these two face I suppose, and that would be; the completely different upbringing.
Kate's parent's obviously belonged to the upper-middle-class ranks and themselves established a party supply business which they named 'Party Pieces' (and is also now estimated to be worth at least $53 million just FYI) way back in 1987. Kate also worked for the company briefly while she was first dating Prince William and stopped after she married him in 2011.
Whereas Meghan, dear Meghan, on the other hand, experienced far much more of a working-class childhood at her home in the US. Meghan did indeed have a comfortable and loving upbringing however her family's dysfunctionality has certainly been highlighted these past few days.
She also has two estranged half-siblings, Thomas Markle Jr. and Samantha Markle... and lest we forget just how publically they have both attacked the Duchess of Sussex in the past.
In stark contrast, however, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate, began dating Prince William at the youthful age of 21 after they met at St. Andrew's College back in 2005.
Unfortunately for Meghan, it is the success she garnered before her marriage to Prince Harry that has made her adjustment to Royal life more chaotic than anything else.
Literally as soon as Meghan's relationship with Prince Harry was announced, it was widely reported that Meghan Markle would have to depend on Kate Middleton in order to learn the rules and regulations of Royal life. She would have to put her trust in her to give her proper advice and support for her new life.
Earlier this year, the Royal sisters-in-law even enjoyed a super 'exciting' day out at Wimbledon, where they were constantly spotted smiling and bonding over the glorious game of... tennis.
As more and more questions of a "big rift" between the two Duchesses Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle continue to crop up, only time shall truly tell if the pair - and their royal husbands, of course - can one day overcome their differences, find a mutual ground and establish their "camaraderie".
If you love the Royals just as much as I do, then I'm sure you'll just be hoping for the best like me and the rest of us Royal Family-o-philes!
