Kate breaks silence on Meghan

KATE Middleton has brushed off rumours of a feud between her and sister-in-law Meghan Markle following speculation that the pair are at war.

Earlier this week The Sun revealed rumours of a rift between the duchesses had started after royal sources claimed Kate, 36, was left in tears following an altercation with Meghan, 37, about Princess Charlotte's bridesmaid dress.

The "tension" between the "very different" women is thought to be a driving force behind Prince Harry and his wife's decision to move out of Kensington Palace and into Frogmore Cottage at Windsor Castle.

However, Kate appeared to be nothing but supportive of Meghan when asked about her pregnancy during a public appearance at Leicester University, reports The Sun.

Asked by a fan if she was excited for "Meghan and her new baby", Kate gushed: "Yes, absolutely.

"It's such a special time to have all the kiddies … and a cousin for George and Charlotte as well, and Louis. So it will be really special."

A royal fan shared a video of the exchange on their social media account.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were in Leicester to pay tribute to the five people who died in a helicopter crash last month, including Leicester City football boss Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

During the meet-and-greet, the Duchess of Cambridge added that the scarcely-seen Prince Louis - her third child with Prince William - is getting very "big".

"I can't believe he's seven months now, he's a big boy!" she told members of the public.

Kate also spilt the beans on her kids' sweet nickname for their father, Prince William, while chatting with local woman Fiona Sturgess.

"Kate said that William was playing football with the children last night and one of them said, I think it was George, 'Are you playing football tomorrow, Pops?'" Fiona told People magazine. "She said 'no!'"

Just last month it was revealed Prince George and Princess Charlotte's nickname for their grandfather, Prince Charles, is "Grandpa Wales".

He added that Queen Elizabeth II used to call her own grandfather, King George V, "Grandpa England".
