For months now, rumors of a feud between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton have been circulating non-stop.
While reasons for the alleged rivalry vary according to the source, the consensus seems to be that the duchesses had a falling out at some point in the past year and have yet to recover.
The situation got so bad last year that Kensington Palace issued a statement on the feud in a virtually unprecedented move.
Some claim it all started with a feud between Meghan and Prince William, who initially thought the former actress wasn't good enough for his brother.
Others maintained that Meg and Kate got into a fight over what dress Princess Charlotte would wear to the royal wedding, and the whole thing snowballed into something much larger.
Whatever the case, there was widespread agreement that all was not well in the world of Meghan, Harry, Kate, and William, otherwise known as the Fab Four.
But earlier this week, something unexpected happened.
The two couples attended church services together on Commonwealth Day, and observers noted that they seemed less awkward in each other's presence than at other recent joint appearances.
Kate and Meghan even kissed one another on the cheek, which is the British equivalent of picking someone up off the ground and spinning them around.
And according to insiders, the whole thing wasn't just for show.
One source tells Vanity Fair that Kate and Meghan have put real effort into improving their relationship -- and the results are finally beginning to show.
“It’s not always been easy, there have been issues behind the scenes, but Harry and Meghan want to leave on good terms and Kate especially has been making a real effort,” one insider tells the magazine.
“There are no bad feelings and I think Kate was keen to put an end to these rift rumors," says the source.
"She has no problem with Meghan and she has made it clear to Meghan that she’s there for advice or whatever Meghan might need.”
So that's the good news.
The bad news is that the British tabloid press will need to come up with a new scandal now that the duchesses have buried the hatchet.
That could mean more Piers Morgan hot takes about how Meghan "ruined" Harry by inspiring him to become more responsible.
May God have mercy on our souls.
