Throughout the ceremony, the former Suits actress stood behind Kate, sporting a stern expression. The Duchess of Cambridge carried the same firm look. When Queen Elizabeth II entered the room, they both curtsied, almost in unison.

RadarOnline.com readers know the feud between Kate and Meghan has been going on for months and began soon after Prince Harry popped the question to the former Hollywood star. Royal insiders have said both Kate and Prince William believe Meghan's values are very different from their own, and they don't appreciate how she treats the palace staff. Though the family has not shared a statement on the matter, several of Meghan's aides, including her personal bodyguard, have quit, supporting sources' theory that she is a total diva!
