1477

MEGHAN MARKLE and Kate Middleton were snapped together at a charity polo match yesterday as the royal mums showed a united front while cheering on their husbands. Could this spell an end to the rumoured royal rift?

Meghan Markle and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge were out in force at the polo yesterday. Prince Harry and Prince William were both playing in the charity match held in honour of late Leicester City chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha. While House Sussex and House Cambridge have been plagued by rumours of a royal rift, could this be the end of the reported spat?

Proud mum Meghan Markle, 37, made her first public outing with baby Archie Harrison yesterday.

Both Meghan and Kate, 37, cared for their royal tots while watching Prince William and Prince Harry play in a charity polo match in Berkshire.

The Duchesses seemed at ease with one another and showed a united front supporting their husbands.

Kate’s youngest Prince Louis stole the show and made both Duchesses roar with laughter by trying on his mum’s sunglasses.

While Princess Charlotte kept busy kicking a football about and her older brother George tried to copy Dad by playing with a polo mallet.

Archie Harrison slept peacefully in mum Meghan’s arms throughout the afternoon.

The Duchess was photographed planting a loving kiss on her little one’s head and doting Dad Harry came over to check on him after the match.

Yesterday was a rare joint appearance for the two couples, who have faced ongoing rumours of a rift.

Royal fans were looking forward to seeing William and Harry, 34, at the polo but it was not known if their families would join them.

William and Harry played against each other in the match which was won by William’s team.

Pictures show the competitive pair in action on horseback and Prince William appeared to shrug off a sweet gesture from Harry following the game.

The Duke of Sussex, 34, reached out to his brother to pat him on the back after William’s team won the game.

But the gesture was not reciprocated and William, 37, kept his arms firmly behind his back during the photoshoot following the game.

They were previously photographed at Archie Harrison’s christening last Saturday at Windsor Castle.

Despite yesterday’s apparent snub, it seems Prince William and Harry are trying to show a united front against the rumours.

Harry and Meghan have recently split from William and Kate in the joint charity, the Royal Foundation,

William and Harry set up the Royal Foundation back in 2009, with Kate joining two years later.

Meghan and Harry’s Sussex brand has faced some backlash following baby Archie’s very private christening last weekend.

The ceremony was held in Windsor Castle away from public view and Archie’s godparents were kept a secret.
