As it turns out, even royal in-laws can be the worst. Thanks to Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton’s ongoing feud, Prince William is none too pleased with the Duchess of Sussex, 37, right now. So much so, that his relationship with his brother, Prince Harry, is suffering dearly. “No one ever thought anything or anyone could break their special bond — then Meghan Markle came into the picture,” a source exclusively revealed to Life & Style magazine.

“The royals think Meghan is a drama queen,” the source continued. “William has seen a real change in his brother’s behavior over the past couple of years — Meghan totally controls Harry. He’s tried talking to Harry about it, but no one can say a bad word about Meghan without Harry freaking out.”

Naturally, it’s been difficult for the father-of-three, 36, to keep his disappointment at bay. “While he doesn’t often lose his cool, William is growing increasingly frustrated with Meghan as she continues to cause a rift in his family,” the source noted. That rift, of course, extends beyond just his brother, 34.

In fact, Meghan’s less than cordial relationship with William’s wife, 36, is where the most of the tension is stemming from. “Kate and Meghan’s feud has clearly had a ripple effect,” the source admitted. However, it seems as though resolution is coming soon. “William and Kate’s lives will certainly be much easier once Meghan and Harry move to Windsor. They’re done with fake smiles and treading on eggshells around Meghan,” the source concluded. Hmmm, here’s hoping some distance between the once Fab Four will bring the peace of mind everyone clearly needs.
