Meghan Markle emailed royal staff 'to finally set record straight about me' after Kate dress row, claims Omid Scobie

MEGHAN Markle emailed a royal aide to ask if they could “set the record straight” following reports she made Kate Middleton cry, her pal Omid Scobie has claimed.

Mr Scobie, author of the Finding Freedom biography of the Sussexes, said that the Palace had ignored the Duchess' request – insisting that Kate should not be dragged into "idle gossip".

Writing in Harpers Bazaar, Mr Scobie claimed that Prince Harry was asked to cosign a statement rubbishing reports that Prince William had “constantly” bullied the couple in the run up to Megxit.

Mr Scobie claimed that Meghan emailed Kensington Palace asking to “set the record straight” about the alleged row – which is said to have occurred during a children’s dress fitting in 2018.

The alleged email read: “Well, if we’re just throwing any statement out there now, then perhaps KP can finally set the record straight about me [not making Kate cry].”

Her request, sent last January, was allegedly ignored by the Palace. 

During her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan said that she had been left in tears by Kate over the flower girl dresses in the lead up to the Royal Wedding.

She told Oprah: "There wasn't a confrontation and I don't think it's fair to her to get into the details of that because she apologised, and I have forgiven her.

"What was hard to get over was being blamed for something that not only I didn't do, but that happened to me."

In November 2018, it was reported “Meghan left Kate in tears” over her demands for Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaids dress during a “stressful” fitting.

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.

But last weekend, a source claimed to the The Telegraph that the Duchesses fell out after Princess Charlotte‘s bridesmaid dress didn’t fit – which meant they had to schedule more fittings ahead of the big day.

And the 39-year-old revealed she had felt a "turning point" during her time with the Royal Family after reports surfaced in the media that she left Kate Middleton in tears.

She said: "The narrative with Kate that didn't happen was really difficult."

During the interview with Oprah, Meghan said that Kate was a "good person".

But she said she had struggled after reports of the incident surfaced several months after the wedding – saying it had been a "turning point".

It comes after Prince William today insisted the Royal family is “very much not racist” in his first public remarks since the Oprah interview. 

A stern-looking Wills revealed he still hasn't spoken to his brother four days after his bombshell Oprah interview – but in a warning for Harry he pointedly added: "But I will do." 

Meghan's claim that a senior royal raised concerns about Archie being "too brown" was the most damaging allegation to come out of the broadcast.

But William battled back as he and Kate cheered school children back in classes this week on a trip to School21 in Stratford, east London.
