Load Bearing Wall?

We have just purchased a house that has cathedral (Vaulted) ceilings. In the kitchen, they built two archways for entering the kitchen. This appears to be cosmetic, and we would like to remove the archways, but I want to be sure that one or both of them are not load bearing.

I've attached three pictures of the area hoping they will help ANy insight would be greatly appreciated.

Load Bearing Wall?

A picture from further back would help---need to see as much of the ceiling as possible----most likely those are cosmetic---

Load Bearing Wall?

Don't full around with interior walls. It's impossible to tell from pics whether an interior wall is load bearing or not. You will need someone on site to determine
