Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton’s rift was reportedly due to a pair of tights.
Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton were rumored to be feuding in the run-up of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s royal wedding. Previous reports claimed it happened during Princess Charlotte’s dress fitting. A new report suggested a new narrative.
Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton feud
Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are about the same age. Initially, many thought they would be best friends especially that their husbands are royal siblings.
Apparently, the two duchesses didn’t become best friends. Instead, they were rumored to be feuding. There were even claims that Prince Harry and Prince William had a falling-out due to them.
An insider shared a new story about the royals’ alleged feud. According to a source, they fought over a pair of tights while preparing for Prince Harry and Markle’s big day.
“Then there was an incident at the wedding rehearsal,” a source close to the Cambridge told Tatler.
“It was a hot day and apparently there was a row over whether the bridesmaids should wear tights or not. Kate, following protocol, felt that they should. Meghan didn’t want them to.”
Based on the photographs, Markle won. The bridesmaid didn’t wear any tights.
Markle vs Middleton on their staff
Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton reportedly treat their staff differently. Between the two, the Duchess of Cambridge treats the people who work for her better.
“In the palace, you hear numerous stories of the staff saying so-and-so is a nightmare and behaves badly but you never hear that about Kate,” a royal source said.
“Kate keeps her staff whereas Meghan doesn’t. Doesn’t that say everything?”
Meanwhile, Prince Harry’s wife lost several members of her staff in just a few months after joining the royal family.
Many also called Marke “Duchess Difficult” and “Hurricane Meghan” because she was reportedly difficult to work with. According to insiders, she was demanding and had very high standards.
Royal protocols very different from celebrities’ ways
Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle’s ways of treating their staff could be due to their backgrounds. According to royal expert Ashley Pearson, Markle offends the staff with the way she deals with them.
Markle reportedly wakes up at 5 o’clock in the morning and starts texting her team members about their to-do’s for the day. For her, it was how she was “getting her day set up” because celebrities do that. However, the royals have a different protocol.
“There’s a different degree of respect in the royal household and Kate has always been very careful about how she has acted around staff,” a source said.
