The only thing anyone can say for sure is that one week before Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding in 2018, Meghan and the Duchess of Cambridge were both at a bridesmaid’s dress fitting and that there was some kind of incident between the two women. This incident has been one of the central smears in the years-long campaign against Meghan. It was one of the first questions Oprah asked Meghan in the interview this year, and Meghan said firmly that she was the one who cried, that Kate said something to her to hurt her feelings, and that Kate apologized by bringing a note and flowers to her in the days after the incident. Meghan was explicitly denying the Cambridges’ ever-shifting narrative that Meghan “made Kate cry.” Sources claimed that Kate cried over the bridesmaids’ dresses, the hem of said dresses, whether the children would wear tights, and now we have a new “reason” for Kate’s white tears. According to a close friend of the Duchess of Cornwall (of all people), Kate cried after she went berserk on Meghan because… Meghan “bullied staff.” This is really not the most pro-Kate version?
The Duchess of Cambridge was left in tears after confronting Meghan Markle just days before the royal wedding over claims she had bullied staff, Kirstie Allsopp has claimed. Kate Middleton, 39, was said to have been left in tears after she ‘lost control’ during a row with her future sister-in-law, which stemmed over claims Meghan had been rude to Palace staff, television presenter Ms Allsopp told The Telegraph.
Ms Allsopp has now said Kate was the one who cried, and claimed the argument was over allegations that Meghan was rude to Kensington Palace staff. Ms Allsopp, who is a family friend of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, told The Telegraph: ‘Kate never ever loses her temper, but she found out Meghan was being rude to staff at Kensington Palace and she was angry with her. Then, Kate burst into tears because she’d lost control and she did take Meghan flowers to try and patch things up.’
Camilla was a childhood friend of the Location, Location, Location presenter’s late mother Lady Fiona Hindlip, and is the godmother to her brother Henry. MailOnline has contacted Meghan’s representatives for comment.
The infamous row between Kate and Meghan was first reported in 2018, when it was said the Duchess of Cambridge ended up crying after a fitting for Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress. At the time, an insider had claimed: ‘Kate had only just given birth to Prince Louis and was feeling quite emotional.’
But Meghan hit back at the claims when speaking to Oprah earlier this year, claiming she was the one who ended up in tears – not Kate. The Duchess of Sussex said: ‘No, no. The reverse happened. And I don’t say that to be disparaging to anyone, because it was a really hard week of the wedding. And she was upset about something, but she owned it, and she apologised. And she brought me flowers and a note, apologising. And she did what I would do if I knew that I hurt someone, right, to just take accountability for it.’
But Ms Allsopp has now claimed that the dispute came after allegations that Meghan had bullied Palace staff. In 2018, Buckingham Palace launched a review into claims that Meghan had inflicted ’emotional cruelty’ on underlings and ‘drove them out’.

Buckingham Palace didn’t “launch a review” in 2018. They launched the review this year, 2021, just before the Oprah interview aired. The review was launched at Kensington Palace’s orchestration, because Jason Knauf leaked his own correspondence to the Times, correspondence in which he claimed that Meghan bullied staffers, and that staffers were often left weeping because Meghan looked at them. BP initially authorized a review done in-house, but after a few months, they hired a law firm to conduct the review and by all accounts, Meghan is eager to show the third-party investigators her own records and correspondence from that time. The actual “review” is reportedly not even close to being concluded, which should tell you a lot. It should tell you that what the third-party investigators are turning up is actually bad for Kensington Palace, and BP is trying to figure out some way to bury all of this.
As for the story… again, it doesn’t make Kate look good. At best, it makes her look like someone who heard some office gossip about how people didn’t like American Meg and Kate decided to insert herself into the situation and she went batsh-t and… Kate bullied Meghan until she cried. Kate being positioned as someone who “loses control” was not on my bingo card – next they’ll say that Kate was incandescent with rage. In any case, this is all they have. This is Kensington Palace being butthurt that all of their schemes with Jason Knauf didn’t pay off and Meghan was still victorious in her lawsuit against the Mail. All KP is doing is trotting out the same old story with a twist. Once again, it’s been more than three years of this: surely at some point, someone will think to come up with some concrete story or claim about something specific Meghan did to someone?
