MEGHAN Markle DID make Kate Middleton cry in the infamous bridesmaid dress row, a royal biographer has claimed.
The Duchess of Cambridge reportedly “burst into tears” over Meghan‘s allegedly unfavourable comparison of Princess Charlotte to pal Jessica Mulroney’s daughter during a bridesmaid fitting in 2018.
Writing in his explosive new book, Revenge, Royal biographer Tom Bower claims unnamed sources told him Meghan and Kate disagreed about the fit of Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress ahead of Meg’s wedding.
He says he was also told they could not agree on whether the bridesmaids “should wear tights” at the ceremony, Mail Online reports.
Bower said Kate had been “tired” following the birth of son Louis and said she was “irritated by complaints of Meghan bullying her staff”.
When it came to the tights debacle, he claims Kate was “too fatigued to cope” with the disagreement, but felt they should stick to the royal tradition.
Bridesmaids wore tights at Kate and Prince William’s wedding in 2011, but appeared to have bare legs and at Meghan and Harry’s.
Bower said: “Meghan’s insistence was supported by Jessica, the mother of Ivy,” adding: “Some would say that Meghan compared Ivy favourably against Charlotte.”
He goes on to claim the disagreement was followed by a second row “about the length of Charlotte’s hem – Kate felt it was too short and anyway did not fit,” according to Bower.
He also says Meghan “wouldn’t compromise” – and Kate became upset.
But the alleged version of events follow a number of differing reports around the so-called row.
It was initially reported in 2018 that Meghan had made Kate cry during a row over the bridesmaids’ dresses.
The Duchess of Sussex later quashed the claims during her bombshell Oprah interview – insisting Kate made HER cry.
She said: “She (Kate) was upset about something, but she owned it, and she apologised. And she brought me flowers.”
The duchess added: “It wasn’t a confrontation, and I actually think it’s… I don’t think it’s fair to her to get into the details of that, because she apologised.
“What was hard to get over was being blamed for something that not only I didn’t do but that happened to me.”
Speaking on Good Morning Britain today, Tom admitted all the sources used in his book are those that don’t like Meghan.
He said: “She made it pretty clear to all her friends and people who work for her not to talk to me, so it was quite an uphill struggle but I got enough people to speak to me, more than enough, I got about 80 people.”
But he insisted the biography was unbiased, adding: “I sifted through, I never put in stuff that isn’t true and can’t be checked.”
