Meghan Markle and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, have had months of speculation surrounding their relationship. But, a royal commentator, Melanie Bromley has insisted the royal feud between the pair is “made up”. The chief correspondent for E! News also claimed there seems to be no way of preventing the “pro-feud” commentators from speculating.
She said: “There is so much speculation about Kate and Meghan’s relationship. Even Instagram posts are being scrutinised.
“Look at this post, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge put on Instagram to celebrate Meghan’s birthday, good wishes, happiness, it’s all good.
“The haters even criticised this. Asking why they posted a picture with Kate in the middle, rather than posting a solo shot of Meghan.
“There honestly seems no way to make these pro-feud people happy.”

She added: “I have a theory on this. I think this is a made up feud which plays into old sexist theories that women cannot get along with each other and that they have to be competitive with each other.
“Why can’t we see this as to women supporting each other. They have so much more in common than they have supposed differences.
“Think about it, they’re both mothers to young children. They are both married to men with really weird strange unusually lifetime jobs.”
It comes after reports suggested the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge delayed their trip to Balmoral to avoid seeing Prince Harry and Meghan.
Writing in the Daily Mail last week, royal expert Robert Jobson wrote: “As children, William and Harry relished their time together at Balmoral, spending entire summers there with their mother away from prying eyes. But today, it is understood William and his wife Kate may delay their trip until Harry and Meghan have returned to Windsor.”
He added: “The Duke of Sussex’s latest ‘woke’ outburst, in which he declared that he and Meghan plan to have only two children ‘maximum’ in a bid to save the planet, may well have irked the Cambridges’, who already have three.
“What will have fuelled their disquiet, too, is Meghan’s stint as guest editor on British Vogue’s September issue.
“The Duchess insisted it would have been ‘boastful’ to appear on the cover – but failed to mention that Kate became the fashion bible’s cover star two years previously.”
The Duke of Sussex recently hinted in an interview that he and Meghan were only looking to have one more child for the benefit of the environment.

Meghan guest-edited the September issue of British Vogue but did not place her the cover, thinking it was “boastful” to include herself in the edition.
Speaking about the issue, Meghan said: “Guest editing the September issue of British Vogue has been rewarding, educational and inspiring. To deep dive into this process, working quietly behind the scenes for so many months, I am happy to now be able to share what we have created.
“A huge thanks to all of the friends who supported me in this endeavour, lending their time and energy to help within these pages and on the cover. Thank you for saying ‘Yes!’ – and to Edward, thank you for this wonderful opportunity.”
British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful said: “To have the country’s most influential beacon of change guest edit British Vogue at this time has been an honour, a pleasure and a wonderful surprise. As you will see from her selections throughout this magazine, she is also willing to wade into more complex and nuanced areas, whether they concern female empowerment, mental health, race or privilege.
“From the very beginning, we talked about the cover – whether she would be on it or not. In the end, she felt that it would be in some ways a ‘boastful’ thing to do for this particular project. She wanted, instead, to focus on the women she admires.”
The has been an increase in the speculation surrounding Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, and the Duchess of Sussex’s relationship over recent months.
Some royal commentators, however, have hinted at a feud between the brothers, Prince Harry and Prince William, instead of the sisters-in-law.
