However, reports claim Markle and her husband Harry were absent from the festivities.
Since Markle, 37, was an official member of the royal family when she tied the knot with Harry, 34, sources have claimed that there is a rift between the two women.
“Women of the dynamic, and both [brothers] have a very strong woman,” a palace insider to People. “If you have two independent-minded women from the real world in the royal world, they are going to want to have an impact.”
The first signs of distress came in November 2018, when The Telegraph reported that Markle made Middleton crying over an argument with bridesmaid dresses for the former “Suits” star’s wedding.

The alleged tension between the two duchesses is widely rumored as the reason behind the announcement of Markle and Harry move out of London, Kensington Palace, where Middleton and William, 36, to stay.
Royal expert Leslie Carroll, who recently published a book with the title “American Princess: The love story of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry,” told Fox News that at the time of the alleged bridesmaid dress incident, Middleton was still recovering from the birth of her third child, Prince Louis, April 23. Therefore, they would naturally have been in an emotional state, while the American actress was an attempt to navigate her new life in the run-up to the royal wedding.
“Kate was postpartum at that time,” said Carroll. “She is hormonal and sensitive. And the first thing someone has ever said about Meghan was how good she was. Her sorority sisters, her former teachers — the first word that came to someone of the spirit ‘.’ So the fact that Meghan was not of a nature implies other things that were going on… They had so much on her plate, it would not be surprising if she did snap.”
Ingrid Seward, the editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, is the coverage of the royal family since the 1980s and wrote more than 20 books on the subject. Her latest book, “My Husband and I,” analyzes the marriage of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. They said that they agreed with Carroll’s analysis.

“People forget Meghan is a LA girl,” said Seward. “It is very difficult for her to suddenly here, and getting married in the royal family. It is very, very difficult. I think Meghan thought she had an ally in Kate. But everything happened so quickly. Kate is pregnant and sick. And then she had a new baby. So she was not able to give Meghan the attention they expected. And I think that if things start to sour.”
“I am afraid there is [some] truth in these stories,” added Seward. “I don’t think it’s as much of a rivalry as much as these are two very different women, who must not only be the best of friends. Why would they?”
