For months now, we've been hearing reports of a feud between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton.
Now, several media outlets are reporting that the beef has actually intensified in the months since Meghan became pregnant with her first child.
In fact, some sources say the situation has gotten so bad that Meghan and Kate's mutual animosity is now tearing at the fabric of the relationship between Prince William and Prince Harry.
It sounds almost too absurd to imagine -- why would a group of people tasked with representing a nation give in to such petty jealousies and destructive rivalries?
But amazingly, there's real reason to believe that the distance between the two couples is growing wider by the day.
[UPDATE: We've added new information regarding William's alleged affair with Rose Hanbury -- and the ways in which it may have affected his relationship with Harry.]
Take a look:
Not all that long ago, Kate and Meghan seemed to get along famously. Now, insiders say their relationship has been damaged beyond repair.
So what happened to these former friends that led them to turn their backs on each other?
Well, if the anonymous "insiders" are to be believed, Kate began to feel threatened by the all the adoration that Meghan receives from the press.
A Two-Way Street
Sources also say Meghan feels that Kate could have done more to make her feel welcome in her first months as a member of the royal family.
Trouble From the Start
Neutral insiders say Meghan and Kate both put effort into forming a relationship, but they're simply too different to get along.
Trying Their Best
“They try their best to get along but they are two people from wildly different places, so it is perhaps inevitable that they will rub each other up the wrong way.”
