Hands off Kate Middleton. On March 7, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry delivered a shock interview to Oprah Winfrey to testify to their departure from the British royal family, but also to the constant media pressure weighing on them. The opportunity also for the Duchess of Sussex to deny some facts about her, such as the rumor that had been circulating for several months that she would have made Kate Middleton cry before her wedding in May 2018. “The opposite happened”, assured Prince Harry’s wife, adding that her sister-in-law later apologized.
By revealing the truth about this episode, Meghan Markle has in a way accused Kate Middleton of having fed lies against her, as she accused other members of the royal family. And if she assured Oprah Winfrey not to want to “denigrate anyone”, specifying that the week of her wedding had been “really difficult” for everyone, Prince William did not appreciate this personal attack against his wife. “William is very protective of Kate and can get very angry,” Penny Junor told People. “For him, whom Meghan calls Kate in a negative light is worse than being attacked himself,” she said.
Kate Middleton “mortified” by Meghan’s interview
If Prince William briefly spoke after this shocking interview, in particular to ensure that his family is not racist, and even attracting the wrath of Elizabeth II and Prince Charles, Kate Middleton continues her official commitments , obviously as if nothing had happened. Or almost. Because in private, the Duchess of Cambridge would be “mortified” that this unfortunate episode is put back on the table, while she thought it settled. “People noticed that she looked downcast and stunned,” noted Katie Nicholl, who also said that “the last few days have been very hard for Kate”. “But she got up and got involved in her work and her royal duties last week,” she said.
