Kate Middleton has broken her silence on the latest Royal Baby.

And one could read a whole lot into her take on the newborn – or, more specifically, the newborn’s mother – if one really wanted to do so.

Kate Middleton Ices Out Meghan

A day after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed a son into the world, Middleton spoke briefly to reporters about the very young man who is now seventh in line for the British throne.

“It’s really exciting for both of them,” she told reporters on Tuesday, before maybe growing a little passive aggressive and adding:

“These next few weeks, it’s always very daunting first time around so wish them all the best.

You caught that, right?

Yes, Middleton is sending her best wishes to her brother-in-law and his polarizing wife.

But she’s also subtly reminding them that she already has three kids and she knows all about this parenthood thing and, hey, it can be a bit difficult… just in case they weren’t already aware of this fact.

Middleton added that she knows all about having kids in the spring (Prince Louis was born last year on April 23, while Princess Charlotte celebrated her fourth birthday on May 2), once again making a point to emphasize her authority on this topic.

“It’s such a special time – with Louis and Charlotte just having had their birthdays. It’s such a great time of the year to have a baby," she said.

"Spring’s in the air, so it’s really great. As William said, look forward to meeting him and finding out what his name’s going to be.”

Wait, was that another shot?

Did she just accuse Markle of dragging her feet by not having yet come up with a name for her son?

Maybe not, we guess. Perhaps we’re reading a little too much into that line.

Kate Middleton Cracks Up

But it’s hard not to when there’s been chatter for so long over Markle and Middleon, as various outlets have alleged for months that the two Royals simply do not get along.

Are the rumors of a Middleton-Markle feud totally made up?

Or is there really bad blood here?

Might Kate to and quickly get pregnant in order to steal the attention away from Markle again?

It seems unlikely, but you never really know.

Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton Enjoy Sports Together

In the wake of Meghan giving birth, Prince William and his wife did issue a formal announcement as well.

Read a message last night on the official Kensington Palace Instagram account:

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted with the news of the birth of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son today, and look forward to meeting the latest addition to the family."

That’s very sweet.

Even if some critics don’t think it’s very sincere.

Markle and Her Man

Elsewhere, while Markle remains quiet and in recovery, enjoying time with her precious son, Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, have now released a statement of their own.

“We couldn’t be more delighted at the news and we’re looking forward to meeting the baby when we return,” they said via the official Clarence House Twitter account.

Prince William, finally, had some fun at his sibling’s expense when speaking to press at a King’s Cup Regatta event in London on Tuesday.

He said he is “absolutely thrilled and looking forward to seeing” his nephew in the near future, adding that is “very pleased and glad to welcome my brother to the sleep deprivation society that is parenting.”

We can only hope that Harry and Meghan caught up on their ZZZZZs prior to becoming parents for the first time.
