Reportedly, Kate Middleton is having a disagreement with her imperial grandmother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth II. According to Life & Style magazine’s July 14, 2014 feature, “Tormented by the Queen,” the 32-year-old Duchess of Cambridge is persistently in argument with the 88-year-old British queen. Read on to learn more about Movie News Guide’s (MNG) report on the alleged royal feud.

While both the regal ladies pretend to be happy together at public appearances, insiders insist that they have been clandestinely disputing ever since Middleton entered the royal family in April 2011. Allegedly, the Queen feels very embarrassed by Kate and criticizes everything about her style selection to her extreme expenditure. In fact, lately, both the royals have clashed over her plans to move baby Prince George out of London.

“The Queen is famously careful about not being flashy,” “She’s shocked about Kate’s overspending. She thinks it doesn’t make Kate or the royals look good to be splashing out millions on redecoration,” revealed a source to “Life & Style.”

“The queen feels it’s important for William, Kate and [Prince] George to be based in London. But Kate is completely going against her wishes. It really gives them a lot of privacy,” said the royal expert Yvonne York to “Life & Style.”

With the $2.5 million refurbish, the estate now have new roof tiles, with $800,000 spent on new landscaping and a sitting room. The duchess also shopped around for new fireplaces, and William’s grandma isn’t happy. Moreover, a second kitchen at Kensington Palace was added, but the couple paid for it themselves since it was a luxury rather than a requisite.

According to reports, Prince William and Kate Middleton have spent approximately $6.6 million on their house renovation. While British taxpayers, via The Sovereign Grant, already doled out $1.6 million for the overhaul in 2013, new reports confirmed that the number has radically risen.

While earlier disputes cropped up only behind palace doors, sources claim that the royals are now “at war.” As there is a common saying that history repeats itself, consequently, it remains to be seen whether Middleton will explicitly break with the palace like William’s late mother, Princess Diana.

The royal couple were last photographed near London on Wednesday while attending the Wimbledon tennis championships. While numerous tabloids are speculating that she is pregnant with her second child with Prince William, the royal family will celebrate Prince George’s first birthday on July 22, 2014.
