Kate Middleton is "frustrated" by Meghan Markle "stealing the spotlight," according to a webloid who has spent roughly a year manufacturing a feud between the two. Gossip Cop can once again set the record straight.
Celeb Dirty Laundry's latest made-up tale is headlined, "Kate Middleton Frustrated By Meghan Markle Stealing The Spotlight: The Duchess of Cambridge Will Win In The End." According to the site, Middleton has "always been an image of beguiling grace, and has proven her worth on the red carpet. However, with Meghan Markle soon to wed brother-in-law Prince Harry, all gloves are off." It's alleged the Duchess of Cambridge "feels overshadowed by Meghan Markle who is used to the Hollywood glitz and glamour of the monarchy."
Notes the outlet, "The bright, shining lights seem to gel with Meghan Markle - she knows how to pose for a camera and she knows how to work the media something which Kate Middleton is not always as good at." The online publication also quotes the British tabloid Daily Star as asserting, "Kate Middleton knows that Meghan Markle will be a real royal threat the moment she officially becomes a member of the British royal family." CDL dramatically concludes, "Whoa. Bring on the popcorn - these two will be going at it like two ducks in a toxic pond."
Gossip Cop imagines the online publication would love to see nothing more. After all, the webloid has been pitting the duo against each other ever since it was revealed last year that Markle was dating Prince Harry. (And if you're wondering why the blog uses full-name references over and over again, that seems to be an attempt at gaming search engines). In fact, CDL peddled a similar story headlined "Kate Middleton Fears Prince Harry's Girlfriend Stealing Her Spotlight" back in January. And in July, the webloid claimed Middleton had ruled out a third pregnancy because she was worried Markle and any future children she has with Prince Harry would steal attention from her and her own kids.
Of course, it was announced in September that Middleton is, in fact, pregnant with her third child. And to no one's surprise, the outlet has continued with its fake narrative, anyway. Just days ago, Gossip Cop called out the publication for claiming Middleton is "frustrated" that her pregnancy is being "overshadowed" by Markle and Prince Harry's relationship. Sound familiar? But there is no competition going on here, contrary to what Celeb Dirty Laundry wants people to believe. There has been no reputable reporting to indicate Middleton and Markle have any issues with each other whatsoever, and certainly no real, legitimate sources are telling a gossip blog that the Duchess is "frustrated." For the umpteenth time, Gossip Cop is told, and we can once again tell fans, that there is nothing to these unsubstantiated rivalry reports.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
