"A few days before the wedding she was upset about flower girl dresses, and it made me cry. It really hurt my feelings. It was a really hard week of the wedding," she continued. "And she was upset about something, but she owned it, and she apologized. She brought me flowers and a note, apologizing. And she did what I would do if I knew that I hurt someone — to just take accountability for it."

However, Meghan cleared she said those things not to ruin Kate's image, stressing "she's a good person."

"I think so much of what I have seen play out is this idea of polarity, where if you love me, you don't have to hate her. And if you love her, you don't need to hate me," she explained.
