For months now, we've been hearing rumors about a feud between Prince William and Prince Harry.
The causes for the alleged dispute vary wildly from one source to the next, but insiders seem to concur that there's some bad blood between the two princes.
Even outsiders can sense the friction, as William and Harry have been making fewer public appearances together, and they seem to have gone to great lengths to keep their distance from one another in private.
Harry and wife Meghan Markle recently moved to Frogmore Cottage, nearly 20 miles from the home they once shared with William and Kate Middleton.
Maybe Meg and Harry just wanted more privacy for their growing family.
Or maybe the British tabloid media got it right for once, and there really is tension between the couples.
Whatever the case, the hostility seemed to have eased a bit following the birth of Meghan and Harry's first child, Archie.
Now, however, Us Weekly is reporting that little Archie has actually reignited the feud between Harry and William.
The thought of a British baby stirring up drama between two grown men by spreading gossip behind their backs is undeniably hilarious, but we regret to report that that's not what happened.
No, according to an insider who spoke with Us, Harry and Will are at odds over the proper way to raise a royal baby.
As you may have heard, Harry and Meg have gone to great lengths to protect Archie's privacy.
They've even eschewed a royal title for the child so that he might live as "normal" a life as possible under the circumstances.
According to the source, the couple “made the decision to have no live-in staff at Frogmore Cottage,” and they explain to curious parties that "it’s all part of wanting the most normal family environment for Archie.”
And apparently, none of this sits well with Will.
Maybe he feels such an upbringing is beneath a royal baby.
Or perhaps he's concerned that such austere measures will make his own kids look entitled by comparison
Whatever the case, Will was reportedly pissed off by the decision to make Archie's christening a press-free occasion.
“The queen accepted Harry and Meghan’s decision to keep the event private,” says the insider, adding that William and Kate “weren’t happy about it.
"William thinks his brother is going overboard keeping Archie out of the spotlight,” the informant says, noting thhe Harry's older brother “blames Meghan”
And there it is.
These stories always come around to someone blaming it all on Meghan.
This one took some time, but it got there eventually.
At this point there are three possible explanations for all this Meghan-blaming:
1. She messes up constantly.
2. The royals have ridiculously high standards, or
3. The tabloid media is awful and fabricates these reports on a daily basis.
We're guessing it's a combo of 2 and 3 in at least 99 percent of cases.
