After Meghan Markle accused Kate Middleton of making her cry, the Duchess decided to “rise above it all” and act as a peacemaker at Prince Philip’s funeral, a royal expert has claimed.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 39, has been praised for her response to allegations made by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex about her and the royal family in their recent interviews and “was unimpressed with drama,” Camilla Tominey said.

During an explosive conversation with Oprah Winfrey in March, Meghan Markle, 39, claimed Kate made her cry before marrying Prince Harry.

However, when Harry was reunited with his family several weeks later at his grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral, Kate was the first member of the family to talk to him – and was even seen holding back in an attempt to reunite him. with brother, Prince William.

To write for Stella magazine, Camilla said: ‘Despite the interview with Oprah Winfrey of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, when Kate was accused of making Meghan cry while trying on a bridesmaid dress and not supporting her, Kate definitely rose above it all.

“Apart from any personal resentment she may still feel about Harry and Meghan’s two-hour televised narration, Kate put her best foot forward in an effort to pave the way for reconciliation between the brothers.”

She added: “Few would have blamed her for killing Harry, but she had clearly decided that the situation needed to be calmed rather than made worse.”

“It was a nimble move that shows the Duchess is unimpressed by all that is going on.”

At Prince Philip’s funeral on April 17 in Windsor, after his death at the age of 99, the estranged brothers were reunited for the first time in more than a year.

The Princes chatted as they walked out of St George’s Chapel after the service, having previously taken part in the procession on either side of their cousin Peter Phillips behind the Duke of Edinburgh’s coffin.

Harry was initially seen talking to his sister-in-law Kate Middleton as they left the chapel and began to walk, but then she appeared to sit back so he could talk to William for a few moments without her.

According to royal biographer Christopher Wilson, Kate’s decision to initiate a conversation with Harry, which led to the brothers talking, was unlikely to be a planned event.

He told the publication, “I didn’t see that as a staged thing. I thought it was very spontaneous and smart to let the two brothers talk to each other. It was a deft move that shows that the Duchess is unimpressed by everything that is going on.’

It came just weeks after Meghan Markle claimed Kate made her cry before marrying Prince Harry during the bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.

Meghan Markle’s infamous feud with Prince William’s wife made headlines around the world after an alleged row over dresses for the flower girls.

‘Kate made me cry’ over the Wimbledon photos that were ‘not as they seemed’: Sussex’s Cambridges claims on Oprah

Row That ‘Made Meghan Cry’

Prior to the Sussex wedding, reports circulated that Meghan left Kate in tears trying on Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress.

But Meghan told Oprah that the “reverse happened.”

Meghan said she didn’t share the information to be “disdainful”, but added that it’s “very important that people understand the truth.”

“She’s a good person,” the Duchess added

Meghan also gave more details about her tense relationship with Kate.

She was asked about a memorable joint trip to Wimbledon, where the pair formed a united front and were pictured laughing together.

During the interview she seemed to cast doubt on the authenticity of that apparently sympathetic appearance and said: ‘Nothing is as it seems’.

‘Waity Katie’-jibe ‘not the same as racism’

Meghan said her treatment by the press cannot be compared to Kate being called ‘Waity Katie’ because it is ‘not the same as racism’.

The Duchess of Sussex said she thought she was chosen because she was ‘not just British’. She said: ‘I think the volume of what came in and the interest was higher because of social media, because of the fact that I wasn’t just British…

“If they can compare what the experience I’ve had was similar to what we shared with us, Kate was called Waity Katie, waiting to marry William.

“While I can imagine that was difficult, and I do, I can’t imagine what that felt like, this isn’t the same.”

Harry: ‘Caught’ William and I ‘on different paths’

When asked if he would stay close to William, he replied, ‘I love William dearly. He is my brother.

“We went through hell together. I mean, we have a shared experience. But we are on different paths’.

Reports of the clash between the duchesses first emerged in November 2018, when sources claimed Meghan was dissatisfied with the ‘stressful’ montage.

Stories differ as to whether the cause of the spat was a disagreement over whether the bridesmaids should wear tights — Meghan reportedly believed they shouldn’t — or whether it was because Princess Charlotte’s dress didn’t fit.

A source said at the time: “Kate had just given birth to her third child, Prince Louis, and was feeling quite emotional.”

Meghan was also asked about a memorable joint trip to Wimbledon, where the pair formed a united front and were pictured laughing together.

During the interview she seemed to cast doubt on the authenticity of that apparently sympathetic appearance and said: ‘Nothing is as it seems’.

Oprah asked Meghan, ‘Was there a situation where she (Kate) would have cried? Or could she have cried?’

But the Duchess of Sussex replied, ‘No, no. The reverse happened.

“And I’m not saying that to belittle anyone, because it was a really rough week of the wedding.

“And she was upset about something, but she owned it, and she apologized.

“And she brought me flowers and a note to apologize. And she did what I would if I knew I was hurting someone, okay, just to take responsibility for it.”

Meghan added that it was “shocking” that it would be “the opposite of that in the world.”

She continued: “A few days before the wedding, she was upset about something – yes, the matter was correct – about flower girl dresses, and I was crying, and it really hurt my feelings.

“And I thought, in the context of everything else that happened in those days leading up to the wedding, there was no point in not just doing what everyone else was doing, trying to support, knowing what was up.” going on with my father and stuff.’

Meghan also said: “It wasn’t a confrontation, and I actually think it… I don’t think it’s fair to her to go into that, because she apologized.

“It was hard to get over that I was being blamed for something that I not only did, but that happened to me.

“And the people who were part of our wedding went to our communications team and said, ‘I know this didn’t happen. I don’t have to tell them what really happened’.’

Meghan also said reports of her bringing the Duchess of Cambridge to tears were a “turning point”.

The Duchess said “everyone in the institution knew that wasn’t true” and she hoped Kate “would have wanted this corrected”, adding: “she’s a good person”.

Meghan was also asked if a trip to watch tennis at Wimbledon with the Duchess of Cambridge was ‘what it looked like…helping you adapt’.

But the Duchess replied, “My understanding of the past four years is that it doesn’t look like what it looks like.”

Oprah then tried to investigate their relationship further.

Referring to a day the pair spent together at Wimbledon in 2019, she asked: ‘Did you feel welcomed by everyone? It was like you and Kate were at the Wimbledon game where you went to watch a friend play tennis?’

‘Was it what it looked like? You are two sisters-in-law out there in the world, getting to know each other. Did she help you, take you into the family, help you?’

However, Meghan seemed to dodge the question, saying: “My understanding and my experience over the past four years is that it doesn’t look like what it looks like.

“It doesn’t look anything like what it looks like. And I remember people in the company saying so many times, “Well, you can’t do this because it looks like this. You can’t,” even, “Can I have lunch with my friends?” . No no no. You are oversaturated. You are everywhere. It’s best if you don’t have lunch with your friends.”
