Finally! The TRUTH about Meghan and Kate's relationship - 'They are not best friends'

What's going on?

November 30 2018

As Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton prepare for Christmas, there have been claims the royal pair are "tense" with each other. 

But contrary to those reports, a source told PEOPLE that the women, and their husbands Prince Harry and Prince William, enjoyed a lovely, normal family Christmas together last year.

“They really loved Christmas and all had a wonderful time,” the source says. “I think the two women got on — they are definitely not best friends, but it was a really special time for them all to spend together.”

Rumours of an ugly feud refuse to die, with story after story appearing in the media about the pair. We've heard everything from Kate being reduced to tears during a fitting for Princess Charlotte's flower girl dress for the royal wedding to Meghan slamming the way Prince George is dressed.

It was confirmed recently that Harry and Meghan had decided to relocate from Kensington Palace to Windsor's Frogmore Cottage

The move into Frogmore Cottage, a five-minute walk from Windsor Castle where the couple married on May 19, 2018 will give Meghan and Kate some space from each other. 

The “goldfish bowl” of Kensington Palace doesn’t provide that.

“Harry will want to establish himself and come out of the shadows and not be in his brother’s shadows,” an insider further told PEOPLE. 

“They want to do their own thing and create their own style. And to do that you need to be away sometimes.”
