Prince William and Kate Middleton may have accidentally fueled rumors they're feuding with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Thanks to their official Instagram account sharing a photo to wish Queen Elizabeth a happy 93rd birthday on Sunday (April 21), some followers believe the Cambridges are taking a subtle dig at Meghan.
So, what's the problem with Will and Kate's tribute to the Queen? The cute family photo features Prince Harry, however, Meghan is not in the photo. The picture shared on @KengsingtonRoyal is from Trooping the Colour back in 2016 aka two years before Harry and Meghan tied the knot. A quick scroll through the post's comments section reveals many royal watchers believe this photo was chosen to intentionally shade Meghan.
"Not a good display of brotherly love in excluding Prince Harry's wife Meghan. Sends the wrong message to the world from the King one day to be," one follower wrote. "Oh dear, methinks someone is missing from the photo," another added. "Interesting how @KensingtonRoyal chose a photo without Meghan in it," a third follower pointed out.
Though some believe Kate and William intentionally excluded Meghan, it's actually pretty unlikely they're running their official Instagram account. Despite that, it's been pointed out that, even if this wasn't a snub, they've accidentally added fuel to the feud rumor fire. This latest royal blunder comes right on the heels of reports that Harry and Meghan are considering moving to Africa in order to put "distance" between them and the Cambridges.
Hopefully, this was just a social media faux pas made by a royal aide, especially as Meghan prepares to welcome her first child with Prince Harry. Who needs any extra family drama/stress just days before their due date?
