Royal Rivals? Not Even. Photographic Evidence That Meghan Markle & Kate Middleton Are Friends, Not Foes
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.
