They went to Buckingham Palace

Editor / December 19 2018

Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle met for a historic lunch in London for the first time since their feud was announced.

The pair arrived in separate cars at the annual Queen's lunch - thrown in the lead-up to Christmas every year.

Neither looked nervous as they drove through the gates to Buckingham Palace - Prince Harry arrived with Meghan while Kate arrived with Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Ever since Harry and Meghan announced they were to move to Windsor to raise their baby, there have been stories of feuds, fights and problems between Kate and Meghan. 

The stories are said to have come to a leak at the palace from a courtier close to both of them.

The Queen's lunch takes place each year in the run up before Christmas and Her Majesty opens the palace for the extended members of her family, to catch up before the immediate royal family head to Sandringham.

While there were a lot of royals in attendance at the lunch, including Prince Andrew, Princess Anne and Prince Philip, it's thought all eyes were on any awkward interactions between Harry, William, Kate and Meghan - once dubbed the awesome foursome.

A lavish display of food was on offer - the official royal Twitter account even shared some behind-the-scenes photos the day before! One caption read: "Did you know royal pastry chefs will create over 1,200 mince pies for each of the festive receptions held at the Palaces this Christmas?"
