In more evidence of a royal feud, Princes Harry and William plan to "split their staff in an effort to ease tension" between their wives Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, according to The Mail On Sunday.

The source said the major change will be in the couple's communications team.

An insider said, "When William becomes the Prince of Wales, he will take on a lot of extra responsibility, including the Duchy of Cornwall. Harry and Meghan have none of that, and seem ambitious about forging their own paths.

"If you have one private office trying to manage both, things get difficult. William and Harry's double act has naturally been supplanted by the two couples and their families."

Currently, American PR guru Jason Knauf advises both couples on media relations but it's now rumored that he will now concentrate solely on Prince William and Kate, with his deputy, Christian Jones, focusing on the Sussexes.

Knauf has denied the report.

For months, however, pregnant Meghan has been publicly slammed, with many calling her a diva Duchess, and the Palace has worried she isn't taking their advice.

Harry, 34, and William, 36, are expected to divide their shared household in the next few weeks due to supposed help ease bad feelings between them and their wives.

Among other reports, Meghan, 37, has been accused of making Kate, also 37, cry at a bridesmaid dress fitting before her wedding to Harry.

In royal biographer Robert Jobson's book Charles at 70: Thoughts, Hopes and Dreams, he claimed that pre wedding, Prince Harry raised his voice and yelled, "What Meghan wants, she gets!"

Alarm bells also went off after Markle's personal assistant quit just six months into the job. The Duchess had reportedly driven the woman, Melissa Toubati, to tears with her demands.

Some gossiped that Harry and William's brotherly relationship has also suffered strain.

But others have termed the royal "divorce" a normal outgrowth of the couple's changing responsibilities.

However, a source told The Mail that Knauf was allegedly upset over Meghan asking her friends to "set the record straight" over her troubled relationship with her father Thomas Markle for a magazine.

In response, loose cannon Thomas released a letter his daughter had sent to him, dissing her again and causing a new scandal.

Knauf reportedly believed Meghan made a big mistake in approving her pals to speak out on the situation, and brought back bad memories of Harry's mother Princess Diana's controversial relationship with the press.

As Radar previously reported, Meghan and Harry, who expect their first child in April, will soon leave William and Kate's abode, moving from Kensington Palace in London to Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor estate.

It's thought that the couples now need separate teams to help them forge their own styles—and that will end the much speculated upon rivalry!

Another source said, "There is a gulf in the style and approach to the type of work that William and Kate will increasingly do as future head of state and consort, and Harry and Meghan, who have more of a blank canvas with their roles.

"The brothers have leant on each other and looked after each other since their mother died. But now they have their own families, they no longer rely on each other as before. They have become different people with different outlooks on life."
