Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle 'put their differences aside' and play Scrabble together after watching Queen's speech on Christmas Day
Kate and Meghan 'were in good spirits' as they 'played Scrabble' on Christmas amid rumors of a feud for the past few months
It looks like despite rumors of a rift between Kate and Meghan, the Duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex have put aside any differences in the spirit of Christmas, according to insiders. New reports indicate that the sisters-in-law enjoyed a game of Scrabble together on Christmas Day, Daily Mail reports.
Earlier this week, Kate and Meghan celebrated Christmas with the Queen and the rest of the Royal Family and reportedly got along very well. Speculations were rife in recent weeks that the "differing personalities" of the wives of Windsor were the center of the supposed rift.
Speaking to The Sun, an insider said: "After watching the Queen's speech, the board games were brought out and both women got stuck in. Pregnant Meghan wasn't drinking but Kate had a glass of wine or two, and everyone was in great spirits. They were chuckling along together. You wouldn't know there was any tension between the two. It was a wonderful day and night."
After news emerged that Meghan and Harry will move to a new home 25 miles away from Kensington Palace — where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge reside — rumors of a royal rift between the women began swirling in and around Windsor. There were also suggestions that the pair had clashed over staff and claims that Kate broke down in tears following Princess Charlotte's bridesmaid's dress fitting, which took place before Meghan and Harry's wedding in May.
Just weeks later, it was rumored that Meghan was "fed up" of not being able to "stand up for herself" as royal protocol dictated that she maintain a dignified silence amid rumors of tensions between the duchesses. In a conversation with Us Weekly, an insider claimed that Meghan finds the constraints of a royal life "debilitating" and feels as if she doesn't have a voice.
Meghan has shut down her social media accounts as part of her transition from actress to a duchess, despite having once been a veritable firebrand of feminism who even gave speeches at United Nations forums. Royal insiders have admitted that Kate and Meghan are "very different people" but have also insisted that there has been no falling out between the sisters-in-law.
A source previously told the Daily Mail: "While there are some tensions behind the scenes, Kate is pretty unflappable and nothing has become bad enough to make Harry and Meghan want to move out. People are genuinely pleased to see them so happy. The truth is that there simply isn't enough room at Kensington Palace for them and I know they have been looking at Windsor as a possibility since before the wedding."
