Mom-to-be Kate Middleton seems to be a genuinely nice person. That's not good enough for some people, though: Naysayers are trying their best to stir up some drama with the Duchess of Cambridge - including several "feuds."
Let's break down which feuds are fake and which are real.
Kate Middleton Vs. Prince William
Prince William and his bride of nearly two years might be in love and expecting their first child, but that doesn't mean they don't have disagreements now and then.
And what exactly do these two fight about? It's not like they have to worry about money. Well, it turns out board games turn into heated rows between the former college classmates.
"She said when they play Scrabble they don't usually finish a game, because somebody got in a mood and slammed it shut!" Olympic boxer Anthony Ogogo says in a new documentary, "Our Queen." According to Ogogo, the Duchess told him about it during the 2012 Summer Olympics.
Hey, who hasn't fought about a board game? People cheat during innocent games all. the. time.
Kate Middleton Vs. Cressida Bonas
Could Middleton have it out for Prince Harry's rumored new girlfriend, socialite Cressida Bonas? Maybe.
According to reports, the Middleton sisters - including sister Pippa Middleton - have had a strained relationship with Bonas and her older sister, Isabella Calthrope. It turns out that Middleton and Calthrope both competed for William's attention during their time at St. Andrews University.
Naturally, Kate won - but that doesn't mean she now trusts Bonas and her sister.
"She was really upset when she heard Cress was trying to control who he talks to," a source said of Middleton and Prince Harry, "she told Wills, who had a word with Harry."
"She's very protective of her brother-in-law and is worried he'll get hurt," the source added.
Is any of this true? Who knows, but it makes for a good tabloid story, right?
Kate Middleton Vs. Kim Kardashian
Some royal watchers thought Middleton was royally snubbing Kim Kardashian last fall when she refused to accept Kardashian Kollection clothes from the reality star.
But, that's not the case: Middleton doesn't accept free clothes, period.
"She doesn't take free clothes, and I've heard that from other people who sent her things," designer Katherine Hooker recently told The Huffington Post.
So, Middleton might not have directly snubbed Kardashian, but it's not likely they'll be hanging out in the future.
"She doesn't want to appear she is endorsing any product. It's not proper. Quite apart from that, the Kardashian outfits just aren't appropriate for a duchess," a source said in November 2012.
"Kate is hardly going to turn up for an event with the queen in a cheap leopard-print miniskirt or gold sequined jacket!"
