The former “Suits” star told Oprah Winfrey that her sister-in-law made her cry over Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress.
Kirstie Allsopp, a TV presenter, has accused Meghan Markle of making Kate Middleton cry during a confrontation over claims that she bullied aides out of the palace.
During an argument in May 2018, the 50-year-old “Location, Location, Location” host claimed that the Duchess of Sussex left her sister-in-law in tears. She claimed that when the Duchess of Cambridge started learning that the former “Suits” star was “being rude” to palace staff, she confronted her.
Allsopp did not go into specific details about what happened between the two women. But, according to her, it ended with the mother of three losing her cool and crying.
“Kate never ever loses her temper, but she found out Meghan was being rude to the staff at Kensington Palace and she was angry with her,” Allsopp told The Telegraph adding, “Then, Kate burst into tears because she’d lost control and she did take Meghan flowers to try and patch things up.”
Unlike the presenter, Meghan Markle admitted to Oprah Winfrey in March that she cried over a disagreement with her sister-in-law over bridesmaid dresses. When asked about reports that she made Kate Middleton cry in the days leading up to her wedding to Prince Harry, she said in the explosive sit-down interview that “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 apologized,” the 40-year old said adding that the Duchess of Cambridge later brought her flowers and a note to apologize.
“And she did what I would do if I knew that I hurt someone, right, to just take accountability for it,” she added.
In terms of the bullying allegations, it is claimed that Meghan Markle overworked her staff and was difficult to work with. Her former communications secretary, Jason Knauf, filed a formal complaint about the bullying in October 2018, but Meghan Markle has since denied the claims. Jenny Afia, her lawyer, also stated in an interview on the BBC documentary “The Princes and the Press” that the bullying stories contain “massive inaccuracies”
