Kate and Meghan attend the Women's Singles Final at Wimbledon on July 13, 2019 in London.
The Duchess of Cambridge is said to be “mortified” and “saddened” by the Duchess of Sussex’s claims about their alleged argument in the bombshell Oprah interview.
During the interview, which aired in the UK last week, Meghan alleged that her sister-in-law Kate made her cry in 2018, rather than the other way around, as was widely reported by the tabloids at the time.
According to Meghan, reports of the women feuding over flower girl dresses before the royal wedding were true to an extent, but it was she who had ended up in tears.
“I don’t say that to be disparaging to anyone because it was a really hard week of the wedding and she was upset about something,” Meghan said.
“A few days before the wedding, [Kate] was upset about something. Yes, the issue was correct about flower girl dresses.”
Meghan added that the altercation “made [her] cry” and that Kate “owned it and apologised” to her with a handwritten note and flowers.
“And she did what I would do if I knew that I hurt someone, right, to just take accountability for it,” the duchess said, adding that it wouldn’t be fair to get into the details because Kate had apologised to her.
Now, royal expert Katie Nicholls has said that Kate is unhappy with Meghan’s claims and that she would never have wanted the issue to be brought up in public again.
“From what I hear, there are different versions of the bridesmaid story, not just the one Meghan discussed,” Nicholls told OK Magazine.
“Kate felt it was all sorted, so to have it brought up again was mortifying. Kate is not in a position to respond and Meghan and Harry know that.”
Nicholls added that Kate has “never wanted” reports of a rift with Meghan to be published in the press.
“Kate is so discreet and respects her personal life,” she continued.
“You never hear about her falling out with anyone because she is very careful with how she treats others. Kate and William both feel they were hugely welcoming to Meghan and Harry.”
The duchess’s admission comes after she and Prince Harry revealed that they were actually married three days before the royal wedding.
"I’m just really relieved and happy to be sitting here talking to you with my wife by my side, because I can’t begin to imagine what it must have been like for her going through this process by herself all those years ago,” Harry said, adding, "because it’s been unbelievably tough for the two of us.”
“Meghan is a Hollywood starlet. You can’t blame a tiger for biting the head off a sheep. But I don’t believe a word that comes out of her mouth. She’s an actress and knows how to manipulate her audience,” said Gary Goldsmith.
The YouTube duo paid the Queen's former press secretary Dickie Arbiter, the editor of Majesty magazine Ingrid Seward, and royal commentators Richard Fitzwilliams and Victoria Arbiter to give their opinion.
The home comes with protection, too – it sits on a five-acre promontory and has a guard house.
When the victim’s son reached the police station and sought action against the accused, the Station House Officer slapped him and misbehaved with him.
The attendance of the British royals had been kept under wraps, and was only confirmed by Jordanian state media a few hours before the start of the palace ceremony.
