With so many Royal rumors flying around, we’re not sure what to believe anymore.
At first there was a lot of talk of a feud between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton.
But what if it isn’t the Duchesses at all?
Lately we’ve been hearing more and more the division between Prince William and Prince Harry may have nothing to do with their wives — and everything to do with a rift between the brothers themselves.
We heard this week about a fiery rumor circulating though British high society about William having an affair with a fellow aristocrat’s wife.
If it’s true Will cheated on Kate — or even true Harry believes the rumor — it would make sense he’s on the outs with his bro. After all, Prince Charles cheating on Princess Diana was what fractured their family when they were so young…
Our heads are spinning from all this palace intrigue, so we were happy to hear the perspective of a man in the know about such things.
Us Weekly spoke to Lady Di’s former butler, Paul Burrell, and his take on the feud situation was very insightful — specifically, he never bought the talk of a feud between Meghan and Kate! He explained:
“They are different women with different roles from different cultures. Kate knows that Meghan is no threat to her, and Meghan is mature enough to realize that her role is vastly different to Kate’s.”
Burrell says he’s “sure that they have differences of opinion”:
“I have no doubt that Meghan is not a ‘yes’ person. [She] speaks her mind and voices her opinions as an American woman of today would and should.”
It’s actually something he sounds like he admires about Meghan, saying the former commoner “will have a great influence on the man she loves — even though he will never be king.”
Harry is sixth in line, so it’s not impossible — but highly unlikely.
Ultimately Burrell doesn’t think any disagreements on policy or whatnot would amount to a feud between Kate and Meghan — certainly not “jealousy” between the two.
So it’s the boys then?
Actually, no. The 60-year-old speaks from experience when discussing the princes and says he isn’t buying they had a falling out either!
“They may have differences as they are two very different personalities. I think that their life bond was forged at the time of their mother’s death and that they are inseparable.”
So is everything just speculation? If so, why is the Royal family all of a sudden so concerned with rumors in tabloids??
Hmm. We’re still not decided.
So when it comes to thinking the best of the Royals, we guess the butler DID do it.
But what do YOU think is going on??
