Kate Middleton has been ignored once again by Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip in a special royal event. Because of this people speculate that Kate and Prince William are perhaps heading for a split.

The Queen invited Countess Sophie Wessex to accompany her and Prince Philip instead of the Duchess of Cambridge in a Service of Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey on November 24. This event was held in remembrance of the celebration of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards. So Kate was not invited according to Celebrity Dirty Laundry who was ignored and snubbed once again by Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip.

On one hand, the Duke of Edinburgh was founded 60 years ago by no other than Prince Philip. It is being considered as the world's leading achievement award for young people. It has been suggested that millions of lives have already been improved because of the accomplishments of these young people.

The DofE has already served millions of people in their communities by developing in them a sense of adventure and learning skills that will be most helpful to them in the near future.

People are clueless why Countess Sophie was the one invited by Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip to the Service of Thanksgiving. It can be recalled that Kate Middleton has been enjoying a luxurious vacation in France just the last summer while Countess Sophie was training for the 450-mile DofE challenge.

With this, people start to compare Sophie and Kate. The Duchess of Cambridge is considered to be work-shy by serving only the community when it suits her best interests. Kate's motivation only heightens when it involves private jet from rich friends or luxury vacations at villas.

Because of this, the rumor that Prince William and Kate are heading for a divorce has been triggered. The Queen is also said to be not so satisfied with the Duchess charity works. So is she pushing too for the said impending split?

And rumors are rife that Kate mastered the art of manipulation and she acquired this skill from mum Carole Middleton. Kate used this to manipulate herself into a marriage to William.

The reason that Queen Elizabeth favors Sophie is because Her Majesty and the Countess of Wessex both love history and ancient historical documents. Countess Sophie and Prince Edward are considered the least troublesome Royal couple.

But maybe Kate was asked to attend only that she has to rest after a demanding evening at the Place2Be Awards ceremony.

If Kate Middleton has been ignored once again by Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, will this intensify the rumor of her divorce with Prince William?
