While outlandish stories about the Royal family are nothing new, there's no denying that MSN significantly amplified the article's amplification, especially to audiences in America, Australia and the United Kingdom.
A snippet of the original article claimed that palace staff had reported a "heated discussion" transpiring between the pair, during which Kate expressed her unhappiness in the marriage.
"When you married me, you knew what you were getting into!" William is said to have replied, to which she responded, "Maybe marrying you was a mistake."
The article then claimed that after the argument, "Kate packed her luggage and left to her parent's house with her children."
Unfortunately, this isn't the first time that breakup rumours have circulated around the couple, and knowing the typical news cycle, it likely won't be the last.
Despite the rumours, Kate and William appeared to be all smiles while attending the Top Gun: Maverick movie premiere during the Cannes Film Festival. Kate was bringing old Hollywood glamour in a black and white gown, while William looked dapper in a suit.
While some body language experts argued that there appeared to be tension between the two, there is no denying that the allegations about their breakup is nothing more than a fabrication.
It's high time we stopped speculating about the private lives of the Royal Family, especially when the consequences play out on the world stage.
