Meghan Markle told Oprah Winfrey that Kate Middleton made her cry. However, another insider alleged that the Duchess of Sussex had a different version of the story.
Meghan Markle Vs. Kate Middleton: Who Made Who Cry?
In December 2018, there were reports claiming that Meghan Markle made her sister Kate Middleton cry during the bridesmaids' dress fitting. The Duchess of Sussex addressed the reports during her interview with Oprah Winfrey for a CBS special in March 2021. Prince Harry's wife denied it saying, "the reverse happened."
According to Markle, something happened and Middleton was so upset that it made her cry. She added that everyone in the palace knew the truth, but no one stood up to defend her.
Meanwhile, an unnamed palace source spoke about the issue with The Sunday Times to commemorate the Duchess of Cambridge's 40th birthday. According to the tipster, they never heard Middleton speak about the issue, only Markle did and she had a different version than what she told Winfrey.
"I’ve had hundreds of hours of conversations with her [Kate] and it never came up," the source said. "I only ever heard from Meghan about that — a very different story from what she said to Oprah."
However, the tipster didn't share what exactly the other version they heard from Markle was.
Meghan Markle's Sister-In-Law Kate Middleton Is A Peacemaker
Several insiders have praised the Duchess of Cambridge for being a peacemaker. When Prince William and Prince Harry reunited at Prince Philip's funeral just over a month after the Sussexes' bombshell interview with Winfrey, royal expert Katie Nicholls said the duchess served as a "peacemaker" between the royal siblings.
"They were very tense as they walked into that chapel," said Nicholls, the author of William and Harry, as quoted by Entertainment Tonight. "It's always been my understanding that behind the scenes, Kate has tried very hard to forge a rapprochement and act as a peacemaker between William and Harry."
She continued, "She loves Harry. She says that she is the sister that he never had. She has been heartbroken to see them fall out, and I think she is one of the few people, one of the few family members who would actually be able to push the brothers together, which she did in a very subtle way, but was very effective."
Prince William also reportedly acknowledged the said trait in his wife, The Times reported. The Duke of Cambridge allegedly told a friend that "Catherine is a peacemaker," before adding, "She’s much better than me, she wants everyone to be aligned."
