The Duke of Susexx reportedly wrote in his memoir that Meghan Markle was left “sobbing on the floor” after the conclusion of a tense text exchange with Kate Middleton days before Markle’s 2018 wedding to Prince Harry.
According to texts Harry supposedly quotes in “Spare,” Middleton got into a fight because her daughter Princess Charlotte’s clothing was “too huge, too long, too loose.”
“She cried when she tried it on at home,” Middleton allegedly texted Markle.
“Can you take Charlotte to have it adjusted, as the other moms are doing?” Markle requested in response to the tailor’s statement that he had been waiting to make adjustments at Kensington Palace.
Middleton at first insisted that all the dresses be resewn. She eventually came around, but not before the exchange left Markle “sobbing on the floor,” Harry reportedly writes.
The texts landed as Markle’s father was exposed for staging a series of paparazzi photos.
According to TMZ, Harry had to share the texts in his book to contradict a previous allegation that Markle had made Middleton cry.
Harry, who announced his departure from royal family duties in 2020, alluded to the dress controversy during a “Good Morning America” interview that aired Monday night.
“I hate to bring it up because it’s so petty, but it’s the bridesmaid dresses,” Harry said when for an example of a time that royal officials refused to counteract a false narrative about Markle.
