Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle became sisters-in-law when the former Hollywood actress tied the knot with Prince Harry on May 19, 2018. Since then, royal fans have been spreading rumors about their mutual visceral dislike of each other and their animosity. Moreover, picky fans noticed that there seems to be some competition between the couples’ two royal Instagram accounts.

The alleged conflict occurred as photos were posted on social media accounts that made some feel as if the two households were engaging in a case of one-upmanship. While Middleton and Prince William posted photos of their children at the Duchess’ garden at the Chelsea Flower Show on their account, Prince Harry and Markle celebrated their first wedding anniversary by revealing a collection of behind-the-scenes photos from their wedding day.

With the Cambridges and Sussexes set to go on royal tours this fall, the palace courtiers have tried to do what they can to prevent the couples' schedules from overlapping in order to avoid any "competition," a royal expert claims.

It was also revealed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be heading to Africa on their next official royal tour with their newborn son, Archie Harrison, while Prince William and Kate Middleton will be visiting Pakistan.

Katie Nicholl said to The Sun in an interview published on July 5, 2019:

"We are still waiting for the dates so we don’t know if there will be an overlap."

The expert also admitted:

“I think that’s why where couriers can avoid diary clashes they will, because they’ll be keen to avoid any sense of competition between the couples... The whole point of splitting the household and splitting the foundations is so they can each pursue their own trajectories."

However, the chances of their schedules clashing seem higher since the couples split their offices. While the Cambridges are still based at Kensington Palace, the Sussexes now have their offices based at Buckingham Palace - meaning that in the daily back and forth of activities, there is a higher chance of confusion. However, the goal will likely be to limit that possibility as much as possible.

All in all, royal fans should not add tinder to the fire or pit one couple against the other because family bonds trump all other concerns.
