Prince Harry once confronted Prince William about Kate Middletown’s treatment of his wife, Meghan Markle, at the start of their marriage, telling his brother that she should be “friendlier,” a bombshell book claims.
The Duke of Sussex had the tough conversation with his older brother ahead of a trip planned with Meghan to Australia and New Zealand in late 2018, according to Tom Bower’s “Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors.”
Harry felt that members of the royal family were not providing Meghan enough support — and suggested that William’s wife, Middleton, could be “friendlier” to his wife, an excerpt obtained by The Mirror claims.
“Members of their family, said Harry, were not showing her [Meghan] sufficient support, respect, or friendship,” Bower writes. “Meghan, Harry believed, should be just as appreciated as their mother [Princess Diana].”
Bower claimed that there were other fractures in the relationship between the couples — and Harry and Meghan’s wedding earlier that year had only seemed to make it worse.
The book reported that Kate “burst into tears” after Meghan compared the Duchess of Cambridge’s daughter, Princess Charlotte, “unfavorably to her best friend Jessica Mulroney’s daughter,” Isabel, during a dress fitting for the wedding.
Bower alleges that the two fell out over whether Kate’s daughter should wear tights and if the dress fit properly.
Meghan and Kate, both now 40, did not see eye to eye about the length of Charlotte’s hemline or the fit of her dress, according to Bower. They also allegedly disagreed on whether Meghan’s bridesmaids “should wear tights” at the wedding.
The biographer also claims that Meghan’s pal Jessica and her mom “supported” Meghan’s “insistence” in the row with Kate.
Meghan had addressed the wedding squabble during her interview with Opah Winfrey, but she claimed that it was the Duchess of Cambridge who had made her cry, not the other way around.
