Step into the icy corridors of royal relations as Omid Scobie's latest book, Endgame, spills the tea on Kate Middleton's alleged reaction to Meghan Markle.
According to the royal expert, Kate, 41, has reportedly 'shivered' at the mere mention of her estranged sister-in-law's name.
Despite the intriguing revelation, Scobie paints a picture of distant ties, claiming that the two Duchesses have had "almost zero direct communication" since 2019.
The snippets of interaction have been limited to "short pleasantries" here and there, as reported by Us.
The book suggests that any hopes of a reconciliation between Meghan and Kate, or even between Kate and Prince Harry, seem bleak.
Amidst rumors of royal tensions, sources revealed in August that Prince Harry and Kate Middleton were engaging in clandestine phone calls, seen by some as a "kind gesture" aimed at repairing the strained bonds within the royal family.
Long-standing rumors of a rift, including a reported spat over Princess Charlotte's flower girl dress before Harry and Meghan's 2018 royal wedding, have fueled the narrative.
Originally, it was reported that Meghan made Kate cry, but subsequent reports flipped the narrative.
