The legendary tear dispute between Duchess Meghan and Duchess Catherine from 2018 is entering the next round. Who made whom cry here? Investigative biographer Tom Bower is certain: Meghan is the culprit.
In 2018, the rumor that Duchess Meghan, 40, had made Duchess Catherine, 40, cry at a fitting for her wedding to Prince Harry, 37, first surfaced. In the explosive Oprah interview, the Duchess of Sussex called the moment a “watershed moment” but claimed “the opposite happened”: Kate was to blame for her tears. Her good friend, TV presenter Kirstie Allsopp, 50, supported the thesis in an interview months later that Meghan was the culprit.
Investigative journalist Tom Bower revisits the legendary argument in his new investigative novel, Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors, also claiming, “Meghan made Kate cry during the argument over the bridesmaid dress.”
Duchess Meghan: Does she or doesn’t she?
Catherine “broke down in tears” after Meghan, then her last name was Markle, “compared Princess Charlotte to her best friend Jessica Mulroney’s daughter” during a 2018 bridesmaid fitting. This is how Tom Bower tells the story.
Four years ago, Harry & Meghan said yes
Unnamed sources close to Kate told him that the two women had disagreed over the length of Princess Charlotte’s hemline and the fit of her dress, as well as whether the bridesmaids should wear tights to the wedding. The author also claims that Meghan’s “persistence” was “backed up” by Mulroney. Only the two duchesses themselves know who is really right…
Claims or Explosive Revelations?
Tom Bower is said to have spoken to Duchess Meghan’s enemies and friends for a year. Bower’s book is a “characteristically explosive and thoroughly researched account of the rift between the Sussexes and the rest of the royal family, touching on every aspect of scandal and suspicion.”
He did not exchange ideas with her or with the British royal family itself. However, an anonymous source told The Sun that the Duchess of Sussex was “terrified” of the book.
