This past month was no exception as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed the news that they were expecting their second child and announced that they would not be returning to royal duties.
The Duke and Duchess spoke about everything from mental health and their relationship with the royal family to their current pregnancy, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle even revealing that they are expecting a baby girl.
It was Meghan Markle's words about Kate Middleton that really got the world talking, finally breaking her silence on the rumoured 'feud' between the Duchesses that has been speculated about for years.
When asked about the incident which was reported in the press as Meghan making Kate cry in the run-up to her wedding over Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress, Meghan replied: 'The reverse happened.’
She continued: ‘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.’
Meghan emphasised however that the problem was not Kate but instead 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 explained.
Speaking about how the story was reported, Meghan continued: 'Everyone in the institution knew it wasn't true. So why didn't somebody just say that?’
This week, details of an email that Meghan sent Kensington Palace about the false reports have emerged.
In his recent op-ed for Harper's Bazaar, Omid Scobie, royal expert and co-writer of Finding Freedom, wrote that in January last year 'Kensington Palace urgently requested that Prince Harry cosign a statement against an "offensive" newspaper report stating Prince William "constantly bullied" the Sussexes before their decision to step away.'
According to a source via Scobie, Meghan emailed back: 'Well, if we’re just throwing any statement out there now, then perhaps KP can finally set the record straight about me [not making Kate Middleton cry].'
Scobie added that much like 'many requests made by the couple', it was 'ignored' and Meghan was told that the Duchess of Cambridge 'should never be dragged into idle gossip'.
The Cambridges have not responded.
