Prince William 'reeling' after Meghan Markle claimed Kate Middleton made her cry in bridesmaid fitting row

PRINCE William was left “reeling” after sister-in-law Meghan Markle accused his wife of making her cry at a bridesmaid fitting. 

The Duchess of Sussex told Oprah Winfrey in a bombshell interview that the Duchess of Cambridge had made her cry and “really hurt” her feelings. 

Tensions between Prince Harry and Prince William, along with their wives, had been reaching boiling point in the months after Meghan and Harry’s wedding in 2018. 

Both couples had been working closely together before the celebrations, and were known as the “Fab Four”. 

But initial reports claimed that Meghan had “left Kate in tears”over her demands for Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaids dress during a “stressful” fitting.

Meghan, 40, then went on to claim the opposite had happened – accusing Kate of making her cry. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a series of shocking allegations against the royals, which reportedly fuelled the brothers feud. 

The couple claimed that an unnamed member of the Royal Family had made a racist comment about the colour of son Archie's skin.

Now a royal source has told the Sunday Times that William, 39, was left “reeling” and his head was “all over the place” after Harry and Meghan made several allegations against his wife and family. 

He was forced to publicly state that the royals were “very much not a racist family” in the days after the interview. 

Buckingham Palace also issued a  rare statement on behalf of the Queen, saying “some recollections may vary.”

During the interview Meghan said she had forgiven Kate, but reports have since claimed that she slammed the door in her sister-in-law's face when she took flowers to Nottingham Cottage – the Sussex's home at the time.

In Finding Freedom, author and close friend of the Sussex’s Omid Scobie stated: “There were no tears from anyone.”

It was then subsequently claimed that the “rift” began when Kate said the bridesmaids should follow royal protocol by wearing tights which Meghan disagreed with.


The claims come after a close pal of Prince William said he didn’t want to attend a memorial for his mother Diana with his brother Harry amid their ongoing rift.

The Duke of Cambridge was reportedly still “furious” with his brother in the weeks before a statue was unveiled at Kensington Palace last year to mark their mother's 60th birthday. 

Both brothers had been warring with each other after Harry and wife Meghan chose to step down as senior royals. 

It appeared the siblings had put aside their differences to honour Diana – although Harry reportedly left 20 minutes after sharing a glass of bubbly following the unveiling.

Harry also criticised his father Charles and said Williamand the family were trapped. 

Meghan also claimed she was prevented from seeking mental health support when she was in crisis, adding that she even felt suicidal while pregnant with Archie.

Biographer Robert Lacey said the brothers quarrelled in the immediate aftermath of their grandfather Prince Philip's funeral in April, and there was no sign of any improvement.

In his book, Battle of Brothers, a source close to William claimed he believed Meghan had always had an “agenda”.
