Meghan Markle has reportedly reached out to former pal Victoria Beckham in a bid to end their recent feud, claims a  report.

 Meghan is said to have fallen out with Victoria over allegations that the former 'Spice Girl' was leaking stories about her to the media, though it appears they have now put any bad blood behind them.

Sources told the Mirror that Meghan contacted Victoria during the Beckhams' recent skiing holiday in Canada and tried to work out their differences so they could be friends again.

"Vic has been having a tricky time over the last few weeks, so it was really nice for her to hear from Meghan, who wanted to break the ice and heal their feud," the source shared.

"Initially, she asked how she was and how the half-term break was going with her family. They then talked things out and it was a relief to clear the air."

The Beckhams first connected with the royal family when ex-Manchester United and Real Madrid star David worked alongside Prince Harry during the London 2012 Summer Olympics that saw close to 11,000 athletes from around the world compete over two weeks.

Their friendship only grew from there, and David and Victoria were amongst the elite few who snagged an invite to Harry's and Meghan's royal wedding in May 2018.

But it all seemed to have gone south this past January, just days after Harry and Meghan made the bombshell announcement that they would be stepping down from their positions as senior members of the royal family in the pursuit of financial independence.

According to rumors, Victoria was allegedly leaking stories about her friendship with Meghan to the press, resulting in Harry directly confronting David "head-on."

Victoria was reportedly left "mortified" and "hurt" over the allegations as she felt her reputation was being dragged into the mud. "She and David were both shocked and hurt — so it was hard for her to relive the same feelings after details resurfaced of the alleged leak amid the furor around Harry and Meghan stepping back from the royal family," a source said at the time.

"Vic's now panicking that this could destroy her reputation. She's been very careful who she keeps close to her in the past for reasons of trust and loyalty. It's heartbreaking for her to be accused and for everyone else to know about it."

But it looks like all that is in the past now, with Meghan working to repair their friendship as she looks to build a new life in Canada with Harry and their son Archie.

"Meghan made it clear she knows how much Harry valued his friendship with the Beckhams, and both women understand what it's like to feel under scrutiny and pressure," the source said about the pair's reconciliation. "It's hard to find people you can trust and connect with when you're as famous as the two of them, so they value each other a lot."
