Royal rumors be damned. Despite the scuttlebutt circling ‘round the palace that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are *not* friends, we have photo evidence that proves otherwise. In fact, just this week, Kate was overheard gushing about her excitement for Meghan’s royal baby on the way—and the fact that George, Char and Louis will have another cousin to play with come the spring. Still, we’ll let the pics do the talking. Royal BFFs forever? Any friendship is a work in progress (it takes 200 hours of time together to become besties, according to science), but if we were to guess, we’d say yes.

Guys, the queen herself didn’t even make it to Prince Louis’s christening. But—like a good pal—Meghan was there.

And Sat in a Group for Princess Eugenie’s Wedding

We know it’s probably royal protocol to be seated boy-girl-boy-girl, but for the sake of friendship, maybe the palace should mix things up?
