This just goes to prove that you shouldn’t believe everything that you read online. Despite reports that indicated a feud between the House of Cambridge and the House of Sussex, apparently, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are getting along fine.
As a matter of fact, the Duchess of Sussex is even reportedly eaning on her sister-in-law as she is trying to navigate her new life as a royal mother.

Royal sources say that the two Duchess’ relationship has strengthened as Meghan is leaning on Kate for not only some much-needed support but also advice as she is trying to balance her royal engagements and public appearances while giving her son Archie the privacy she wants for him.
While Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have never really been close, that all changed when Meghan gave birth to her son back in May. Insiders say that the Duchess of Sussex often texts Kate as the two royal moms now have something to talk about more and more: their children and their lives raising members of the royal family in the spotlight.

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.

Unfortunately, the same can’t be said about their husbands Prince William and Prince Harry. Previous reports indicated that Harry was none too pleased with his older brother when William suggested that he was moving too fast in his relationship with Meghan Markle back when the two were still dating in 2016.
The royal couple later got engaged in 2017 and tied the knot in a lavish ceremony at Windsor Castle in 2018.
Even though Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle managed to look like they were at ease with one another while attending the Ladies’ Singles final at Wimbledon earlier this month, Prince William and Prince Harry have been keeping their distance for the last year now. Not only do they refuse to even speak to one another in public, but they’ve also been carrying out their royal engagements separately.
So far Buckingham Palace has not made any comments about their supposed rift.
