Prince William has endured a frosty relationship with his brother Prince Harry ever since Meghan Markle told Oprah Winfrey that Kate Middleton made her cry ahead of her wedding, a royal expert has claimed.
Ahead of the Sussexes’ ceremony, it had been reported that Meghan had reduced Kate to tears at Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress fitting, but the opposite is true, according to Harry’s wife.
And this is what has created a chasm between the two brothers, says The Mail on Sunday’s assistant editor Kate Mansey.

Speaking to Palace Confidential on Mailplus, Ms Mansey said: “It was such a shame. It was described to me as civil, which is palace courtier for what the rest of us would refer to as frosty.
“I do think those comments aimed at Kate were extremely damaging to the brothers’ friendship.
“Then we have this book coming out and who knows what will be in it.”
Meghan revealed that she has since forgiven Kate, but said it was “really important for people to understand the truth”.
She told the chat show host: “The narrative with Kate, which didn’t happen, was really, really difficult and something that… I think that’s when everything changed really.”
Winfrey pressed Meghan: “So specifically, did you make Kate cry?”
Meghan replied: “No, no, the reverse happened.

“And I don’t say that to be disparaging to anyone, because it was a really hard week of the wedding, and she was upset about something, but she brought me flowers and a note apologising, and she did what I would do if I knew that I’d hurt someone.”
Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan “crossed the red line” in deciding to walk away from the monarchy, believes a royal biographer.
“(The Queen) doesn’t want the Royal Family’s name to be tainted in that way and this, I think, crossed the red line,” said Angela Levin.
“She’s a very patient woman, she’s not a micromanager. She lets her children and grandchildren do what they want up to a certain extent and when they overstep that, she comes down.”
The Daily Star has approached both the Cambridges and the Sussexes for comment.
