Though they've been in-laws for less than a year, Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton have had to face an onslaught of rumors that they're "feuding." Even the Palace went so far as to issue a rare statement about a particularly nasty rumor of a fight between the two—"This never happened," it confirmed—but, luckily, the whole shebang doesn't look as though it's affected the friendship between the two Duchesses.

There have been a number of sweet moments between the two, and it looks like each of them to go out of their way to be kind to one another, especially in public. Behind closed doors, there's no reason to think that things are any different—Kate has reportedly been comforting Meghan during the new royal's family drama with sister Samantha and father Thomas Markle. Plus, a body language expert has confirmed that Kate and Meghan are actually pals in real life. So let's examine the evidence of the growing relationship between the two duchesses, shall we?
