The flacks at Kensington Palace must be breathing a sigh of relief. Following reports of “explosive rows” and “tension” between the Fab 4—especially Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle—the Palace took the unusual step of issuing a statement shutting down speculation. The Palace simply said the rumored fight “never happened.”

Now, Kate and Meghan are playing extra nice, even dressing in coordinating outfits and, per The Daily Mail, spending the holidays together in a “show of solidarity.”

Kate, Meghan, Prince William and Prince Harry are set to feast together with the Queen in Sandringham, according to reports. If all goes as it did last year, expect a walkabout with the Queen featuring plenty of photo opps and fancy hats.


Meanwhile, former first lady Michelle Obama revealed advice she would give in her new, highly visible role. She tells Good Housekeeping: “Like me, Meghan probably never dreamt that she’d have a life like this, and the pressure you feel – from yourself and from others – can sometimes feel like a lot. So my biggest piece of advice would be to take some time and don’t be in a hurry to do anything.”

Michelle continues: “What I’d say is that there’s so much opportunity to do good with a platform like that – and I think Meghan can maximize her impact for others, as well her own happiness if she’s doing something that resonates with her personally.”
