Thranduil and Galadriel - mutual dislike? Can't Post

Thranduil, whether Sindarin or not, led an independent Sindarin (Teleri origin) elvish kingdom. Galadriel, being of both Noldor and Teleri descent came from a different culture. I don't think he felt any need to bow to Galadriel though there may have been grudging mutual respect. HIs insular kingdom is probably what kept him out of regular White Council activity, though he aided on occasion. However, Legolas is deferential.

The Noldor are accounted the most skilled of all peoples in lore, warfare and crafts; they are therefore called the "Deep Elves". In Valinor "great became their knowledge and their skill; yet even greater was their thirst for more knowledge, and in many things they soon surpassed their teachers," Wiki

Was their an ancient dislike from the kinslaying and/or jealousy of achievement? It seems they lived without much contact, or if there was, it was very limited. At the end of the War of the Ring the borders were set with Beornings between Thranduil and Celeborn. I wonder if Thranduil would have come to the aid of Lorien if they had not also been fending off attacks with their allies the Dwarves and Men of Dale. My guess is that yes, as they had a common enemy, but I imagine a lot of pride would have been on display.
