A new story about Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s “secret life” in Kensington Palace is completely made-up. Gossip Cop can correct this fabricated claim. We’re told it’s “rubbish.”

In the latest edition Life & Style, the gossip magazine purports to know “what really happens behind the gilded gates” of Kensington Palace when the “fab four” get together. A so-called “source” is quoted as telling the publication, “Kate, William, Harry and Meghan are practically inseparable when they’re all under the same roof. They’ve turned Kensington Palace into a party palace.” The outlet’s alleged “royal insider” continues to claim that their get-togethers allow them to “switch off and be themselves without the rest of the royal family and public judging them.”

The tabloid’s questionable “source” further asserts, “They’ll spend hours discussing everything from Harry and Meghan’s upcoming wedding to how to modernize the monarchy.” Suspiciously, Life & Style’s tipster even claims to know that their evenings typically start at Prince William and Middleton’s apartment, where the former “Suits” actress takes over the kitchen. “She’s a great chef and is learning to cook traditional British food such as shepherd’s pie, Sunday roast and fish and chips,” adds the outlet’s supposed “source.”

The magazine concludes its manufactured article by quoting its “palace insider” as saying, “Harry can’t wait for the summer to arrive so he can grill burgers and and lobster on the barbecue for them all to enjoy in the sunshine.” In reality, however, the tabloid is doing nothing more than spewing out popular British topics like Prince Harry and Markle’s wedding and popular British foods like fish and chips. The alleged “insider” isn’t actually furnishing any inside information.

Still, Gossip Cop fact-checked the story, and an impeccable royal source tells us the report is “rubbish.” While Prince Harry and Markle live inside the grounds of Kensington Palace near Prince William and Middleton, no one remotely close to the royal family or the “fab four” is talking to an American tabloid about their private lives. Curiously, the magazine doesn’t mention anything about how they “spend hours discussing” Middleton being pregnant with twins, a fabricated claim the outlet made on its cover last October.

Nor does the publication say anything about them passing hours talking about how Queen Elizabeth named Prince William and Middleton the next king and queen of England. Much like those falsehoods, which Gossip Cop previously debunked, this latest article about Prince William, Prince Harry, Middleton and Markle’s “secret life” at the palace is also made-up.
