Prince William, together with Kate Middleton, has been maintaining a strong front amid all the issues and controversies hounding the royal family. As a matter of fact, the father of Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis was named as one of the most active members of the Firm after he managed to attend 108 of his 223 royal duties in flesh.

Now it is being claimed that Prince William was “all over the place” after he learned about some of Meghan Markle’s comments during the latter’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey last year. Keep on reading to know more details.
Prince William Had A Strong Reaction To Meghan Markle’s Comments?
Royal editor Roya Nikkhah shared details of Prince William’s reaction to Meghan Markle’s claims. Most, if not all, royal fans can recall that Meghan Markle accused Kate Middleton of making her cry ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry in 2018.
The wife of Prince Harry even recalled a scene at the infamous bridesmaids’ dress fitting where the dress of Princess Charlotte did not fit. During the interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan Markle stated:
"A few days before the wedding, she was upset about something pertaining — yes, the issue was correct — about flower girl dresses, and it made me cry, and it really hurt my feelings."
Despite that, the Duchess of Sussex described Kate Middleton as a “good person” and told the American host that the wife of Prince William had tried to build bridges and smooth things out between them. Meghan Markle furthered:
"She brought me flowers and a note, apologizing. And she did what I would do if I knew that I hurt someone, right, to just take accountability for it."
After learning about Meghan Markle’s statements, Prince William was allegedly “reeling” and Kate Middleton reportedly focused on helping her husband through a “really sad time” of conflict. Roya Nikkhah, as per Express UK, wrote:
"William was 'reeling' with his 'head all over the place', furious that his brother and sister-in-law had taken aim at his wife and his family."
An unnamed source, according to the publication, even told Sunday Times Magazine:
"In the days after the interview, her priority was William, not how she felt about what Harry and Meghan had done. She has focused on personal support for William in what has been a really sad time in his life. She never predicted the degree of falling out between them."
To recall, Prince William reportedly advised Prince Harry not to rush his marriage with Meghan Markle as they barely know each other, having been together for two years before their wedding. The Duke of Sussex allegedly took offense at his brother’s statement, which is said to be one of the reasons behind their rift.
Prince William has yet to confirm these reports about having a strong reaction to Meghan Markle’s statements during her Oprah Winfrey interview. So, avid supporters of Kate Middleton’s husband should take these unverified claims with a huge grain of salt until everything is proven true and correct.
Prince William Didn’t Want To Attend Princess Diana Statue Unveiling With Harry?
Meanwhile, Prince William was reportedly very “furious” at the Sussex couple that he did not want to attend Prince Diana's statue unveiling with Prince Harry. Royal insiders claimed that the anger of Kate Middleton’s husband towards his brother almost overshadowed the event.
A tipster told The Sunday Times that Prince William had taken the view that he could only “give so much” to Prince Harry, with Kate Middleton reportedly playing peacemaker with the brothers. One unnamed aide claimed the Duchess of Cambridge was amazing behind the scenes when Prince Harry came.
At the time of Princess Diana’s statue unveiling, both Prince William and Prince Harry were said to have barely spoken and had an “incredibly strained” relationship after two years of a spat over Meghan Markle and her alleged mistreatment to a number of the royal staff, their decision to step down from their senior royal roles and their bombshell interviews.
Kate Middleton was even the first member of the royal family to be sighted talking to Prince Harry when he was reunited with his relatives just weeks later at Prince Philip’s funeral. The mom of three was even seen holding back in a bid to reunite Meghan Markle’s husband with Prince William.
