Both women are "commoners" who have married into the royal family, and both were with their respective partners for almost 10 years before tying the knot, which has led to two of the most stable royal marriages of the past few decades. There have been rumours — of course there have — that the two don't get on, but the two women are in fact very fond of each other and are often spotted giggling and catching up at royal get-togethers. They both shop for costume jewellery at Heavenly necklaces, their joint favourite hat designer is Jane Taylor, and they often go to Wimbledon together.
