Was there real "love" at Wimbledon between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton? The sisters-in-law showed up at the Wimbledon tennis champions on Saturday, July 13 and sat in the royal box together after months of feud rumors.
Kate's sister Pippa Middleton also was with the two at All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club as well as other VIPs. After a source reportedly called Prince Harry's wife Meghan a "nightmare" guest at Wimbledon this week, Kate tried to show their solidarity.
However, the two women, both 37, still appeared stiff as they chatted during Meghan's friend Serena Williams' match against Simona Halep in the women's hotly-anticipated final. Meghan was no doubt disappointed that Simona, 27, wound up beating Serena, 37, handily for her first Wimbledon title.
The Romanian won 6-2, 6-2 as Meghan and Prince William's wife looked on. During the match, many eyes were on the royal ladies given talk about their chilly interactions in the past.
They have tried to put the rumors to rest before by publicly kissing and hugging. But as RadarOnline.com previously reported, Kate and William looked tense in the family royal photo celebrating Meghan and Harry's son baby Archie's July 6 christening.
The awkward scene appeared to show bad body language between the two young couples. Now, Meghan and Kate have sought to put their best faces forward—even though they look fake!

Mad New Mom?
A source claimed to The Times that Meghan, who is officially still on maternity leave, was hard to handle at Wimbledon. The insider alleged that she was a "nightmare" to accommodate, with her casual attire and "self-regarding paranoia."
Meghan wore a crisp white dress to the Wimbledon women's final, but an All England Club insider told the British newspaper that earlier in the tournament, she sported jeans in the members' areas, which is "not allowed." Her rule-breaking attire reportedly caused consternation.
