Duchess Kate to host 'private baby celebration' for Duchess Meghan as feud rumors subside

Months after reports of bad blood between Duchess Kate and Duchess Meghan, the sisters-in-law will celebrate the impending arrival of Meghan's first child in a "private baby-centric event."

Us Weekly reports that Kate will host a small gathering for Meghan in the United Kingdom, but insiders are hesitant of officially labeling it a baby shower: Meghan's "glam people and other relatives will be there. Not sure if it's a total 'baby shower,' but you could probably call it that."

Meghan recently spent nearly a week in New York City, where pals Serena Williams, Amal Clooney and Gayle King were on hand for a luxurious baby shower at The Mark, one of the city's most expensive hotels. Kate was not in attendance.

Kate was reportedly put in a tough spot in regards to Meghan's shower. If she didn't host or attend one, it would add fuel to the fire in regards to their supposed distaste for each other.

In fact, that's exactly what happened when Meghan and Harry opted not to attend Kate's birthday lunch in January.

“Are they the best of friends? No. Do they speak every waking second? No. Do they hate each other? Absolutely not," an insider told Us Weekly at the time.

Rumors of a feud began not long after Meghan and Prince Harry tied the knot in May 2018. She and Kate have never publicly said anything negative about each other, but that didn't curb the speculation, which has only mounted over time. Palace officials reportedly spend hours each day trying to curb negative comments about the duchesses on social media.

The Duchess of Sussex has also been plagued with unending drama with her biological family. She is estranged from her father and half-siblings.
