Aside from the news of their second child or how the royal family were allegedly “concerned” over Archie’s skin colour, one of Meghan’s allegations about Kate Middleton is still circulating, thanks to a certain family member.
The incident in question reportedly saw Meghan make Kate cry in the run-up to her 2018 royal wedding over Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress, however Meghan clarified that in fact, “the reverse happened”.
“A few days before the wedding, she was upset about something—yes, the issue was correct, about the flower girl dresses—and it made me cry and it really hurt my feelings,” she explained to Oprah.
However, she went on to emphasise that the problem was actually not Kate, but rather, the way that the story got twisted by the press.
“She apologised, and she brought me flowers and a note apologising, which is what I would do if I knew that I hurt someone… to just take accountability for it,” she continued.
Explaining how the story was reported, Meghan admitted that the royal family knew the true story, yet played no part in clarifying the truth to the British press, saying: “Everyone in the institution knew it wasn’t true. So why didn’t somebody just say that?”
Since the reports first went public, Kate Middleton has remained tight-lipped, but now, her uncle has spoken out in her defence.
Gary Goldsmith, uncle to the Duchess of Cambridge, spoke out in an interview with the Mail on Sunday, via The Sun.
“I’ve known Kate since she was born and she doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. It’s just simply not in her nature,” he told the publication. “She’s even lovelier on the inside than on the outside. If anyone had a hissy fit, it must have been Meghan.”
He continued: “Kate would have been trying to make the peace. I would fight for Kate’s honour until the day I die. She is the most spectacular person I’ve ever met.”
Of course, it is important to note that Goldsmith wasn’t there during the incident and the royal family are yet to comment on his opinion of the events.
