“Kate opened up about feeling like Meghan had used her to climb the royal ladder,” a source tells Us Weekly.

Pregnant Meghan, 37, meanwhile, admitted that she had felt snubbed by the Duchess of Cambridge, 36.

The two worked through their issues on Christmas Day, which they celebrated with the royal family at Sandringham House in Norfolk, England.

“Being under the same roof meant that they couldn’t avoid each other,” the source told Us.
