Kate Middleton Breaks Royal Protocol By Finally Commenting On Those Meghan Markle Rumors

For decades, the British royal family has followed a simple motto when it comes to interacting with the press: never complain, never explain. When it comes to criticism or bogus rumors, the royals uniformly choose to ride out the tempest – until recently, that is. In recent months, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have become increasingly outspoken against the toxicity of the tabloid press. This week, another important royal has broken tradition and spoken out against phony rumors: Kate Middleton.
