They are thought to view each other as ‘cool professionals’ amid a reported rift between their husbands, and haven’t seen each other in person since March.
The royals have both been invited by their mutual friend and the groom’s mother, Victoria Beckham – despite ‘worries a reunion would divert attention off her son’s big day’, a source claimed.
Prince William and Prince Harry are also included on the guest list, but it is believed Meghan and Kate are more likely to attend than their ‘feuding’ husbands, with both the duchesses being close to the fashion designer, reported 9Honey.

A source told The Mirror: ‘Vic’s been helping Meghan with her move to LA and Meghan has helped promote Victoria’s fashion line.
‘But Vic’s been worried about inviting Meghan and Harry alongside Kate and William to the wedding.
‘She is not only worried about how they all might feel about being thrust together but also at how the attention will no doubt be diverted off Brooklyn and Nicola.’
The source added that Victoria’s football star husband David has urged her not to stress and suggested the royals will know how to take care of the situation.
MailOnline has contacted Victoria Beckham’s representatives for comment.
Brooklyn, 21, has postponed his wedding to 2022 in the hopes that the pandemic doesn’t ruin any plans, with the photographer hoping to throw two events.

The couple, who announced their engagement in July, want celebrations in both Florida and the Cotswolds to cater for both their families. Nicola, 25, is the daughter of US tycoon Nelson Peltz.
Victoria and David were among the guests at Harry and Meghan’s star-studded royal wedding in 2018, and also appeared at Kate and William’s nuptials in 2011.
The Sussexes and the Cambridges last public engagement together was at the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey in March.
They appeared to barely speak to one another during the event, which marked the start of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepping back from royal duties and making the US their permanent home.
Since then, there have been reports of a rift between the princes, with one royal expert recently suggesting the fractured relationship between them will ‘never’ be repaired, unless they happened to split from their wives.

Ingrid Seward, who is the editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, told the Mirror’s Pod Save The Queen podcast that she fears the damage to the brothers’ relationship is beyond repair, following the Duke of Sussex’s decision to step away from royal life with his wife Meghan.
Seward, who’s been following the tribulations of the royal family for decades, said she believes that only an ‘awful tragedy’ would be enough to bring the brothers back to the level of closeness they once shared.
She said: ‘I rather doubt that they will ever get back to how they used to be. I really don’t think so. I think that’s probably a broken relationship.
‘I think perhaps if something happened to Catherine or Meghan, the boys would be together again. But as long as their ladies are there and their families are there…
‘If there was an awful tragedy it would bring them together, but otherwise I don’t think that relationship will be mended. But that is a really personal point of view and I might not be right.’
Meanwhile, Robert Lacey – a distinguished royal historian and adviser to TV’s The Crown – has claimed Meghan and Kate regard each other as ‘cool professionals’.
He told The Daily Mail: ‘Meghan and Kate actually got on rather well from the start. They might not be best-buddy material, but they found themselves, sister-outsiders in their extraordinary royal situation, and both of them cool professionals, treating each other with mutual respect.
‘Each was far too canny to make an enemy of a prospective sister-in-law – it only made sense to be friends.
‘The fundamental conflict was between the two males who had known each other all their lives and had never hesitated to tell each other exactly what they thought and felt.’
