Meghan Markle's absence at Kate Middleton's birthday party has sparked rumours the Duchesses are once again at war.
The Duchess of Sussex was noticeably absent from Kate's 37th birthday celebrations on January 9.
It is understood neither Meghan nor her husband Prince Harry attended the celebratory luncheon at Anmer Hall, William and Kate’s Norfolk country home near Sandringham.
While Meghan and Harry were reportedly given the royal snub, some of Kate's closest friends including her college hockey teammate Emilia Jardine-Paterson were invited.
It comes after months of speculation the Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan were feuding, following rumours Kate burst into tears during a fitting for Princess Charlotte's bridesmaid dress.
The gossip went into overdrive after it was revealed Meghan and Harry won't live in the apartment next to Will and Kate, but instead plan to move into Frogmore House.
However the Duchesses appeared friendly and jovial during their Christmas Day service, according to keen royal observers.
