Apparently, this is the moment the 'rift' between Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle began

Hmmmm.

Ever since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced they were moving away from Kensington Palace, there have been plenty of rumours of a rift between her and Kate Middleton.

Well, technically, it was even before the royal parents-to-be announced their move - but it's definitely gotten worse since.

A body language has revealed the moment that showed the "first signs" of a possible rift between Kate and Meghan.

Judi James told Mirror Online

 

"For me, the very first signs of potential future rifts between these two women came when they appeared on stage together with their husbands with the objective of re-branding them as some kind of 'Fab Four' that would be working together on charitable causes.

"Meghan was still using some postural mirroring of Kate as an understandable integration technique into the royal firm but all the poses that seem to show the two women laughing together are slightly misleading.

"They admitted immediately that there had been friction and William rose to his feet to emphasise the fact that it was Kate's project in the way that a spouse often will when protecting their 'territory' from a usurper.

"Kate was doing what she had done for years: use eye-glances to share jokes with Harry. His gaze stopped short here though, with a very tactile Meghan now getting all the comedy shared with her."

She also said that Kate and Meghan's Wimbledon outing was the "one and only time" there was any effort made to launch the Duchesses as friends.

 

Ms James added that while there was no proof of any animosity between the pair, there also hasn't been any moments that showed a friendship or a bond between them.

She said:

"Kate is a rule keeper and royal traditionalist while Meghan appears to be a very hands on fan of change.

"While there are no active signs to suggest any actual animosity we are still yet to be treated to any 'moments' that might suggest bonding and friendship rather than what risks looking like a hint of frosty-formality."
