Kate Middleton will ‘not forget’ how Meghan Markle treated her but won’t prolong feud, says expert

Kate Middleton will ‘not forget’ how Meghan Markle treated her but won’t prolong their feud, a royal expert has claimed.

Rumors have long swirled of a row between the Duchess of Cambridge, 40, and the Duchess of Sussex, 40, at the former actress’ wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018, with relations remaining tense ever since.

And Kate was said to have found it ‘mortifying’ that allegations she made Meghan cry during a row over bridesmaids’ dresses re-emerged during the explosive Oprah Winfrey interview last year.

According to Ingrid Seward, the mother-of-three will be ‘cordial’ with Meghan if she attends the Jubilee, telling The Mirror: ‘She will be sure to be photographed kissing or hugging her…She knows there is no point in prolonging a feud that has the chance of being repaired.’

Meanwhile Ingrid said if the women reunite at the Jubilee, the Duchess of Cambridge will put her own feelings to one side.

She said: ‘She has to – that is part of her job. Her private feelings have to remain just that.’

During the bombshell broadcast last year, Meghan said: ‘She (Kate) was upset about something, but she owned it, and she apologised. And she brought me flowers’.

Speaking to to OK! magazine last year, Katie Nicholl explained: ‘Kate has never wanted any suggestion of a rift with Meghan to come out in the press, so for this story to be circulating is very hard.’

Katie added there are ‘different versions’ of the story and claimed that Prince Harry and Meghan know Kate is ‘not in a position to respond’.

‘From what I hear, there are different versions of the bridesmaid story, not just the one Meghan discussed,’ the royal expert told the publication.

‘Kate felt it was all sorted, so to have it brought up again was mortifying. Kate is not in a position to respond and Meghan and Harry know that.

The royal expert went on to claim that Kate was left ‘saddened, disappointed and hurt’ in the wake of Meghan and Prince Harry’s tell-all interview.

Royal expert Katie Nicholl previously claimed that Kate was left 'saddened, disappointed and hurt' in the wake of Meghan and Prince Harry's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Ingrid’s latest comments come as questions remain over whether or not the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will attend the Queen’s jubilee.

Last month, royal biographer Tom Bower claimed Meghan may never come back to the UK as she ‘simply doesn’t care’ what the British public think.

The Duchess, who lives in a $14 million mansion in Montecito, California having stepped back from royal duty in 2020, has ‘no intention’ of returning to London because she views Britain as a ‘lost cause’.

The commentator, who is currently working on a biography of Meghan, told the Sun: ‘Meghan’s ultimate destination is unclear, but she certainly has the backing to make a bid to star as an American politician.

‘In parallel, Britain is a lost cause for the Sussexes. In truth, I suspect Meghan no longer cares whether she is welcome in London. She has no intention of returning.

Prince Harry is believed to have ‘reached out to his father’ to have ‘friendly video calls’ ahead of the Queen’s Jubilee and is likely to return for celebrations this summer.

The Duke was expected to come to the UK for the for the Duke of Edinburgh’s memorial service in the spring and the Queen’s Jubilee in the summer.

However, a recent row over the Metropolitan Police providing their security has called their return into doubt.

‘Kate made me cry’ to the Wimbledon pictures that ‘weren’t as they seemed’: Sussexes’ claims about the Duchess on Oprah

Row that ‘made Meghan cry’

Reports circulated ahead of the Sussexes’ nuptials that Meghan left Kate in tears at Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress fitting.

But Meghan told Oprah the ‘reverse happened’.

Meghan said she was not sharing the information to be ‘disparaging’, but added it was ‘really important for people to understand the truth’.

‘She’s a good person,’ the duchess added

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

She was asked about a memorable joint-outing at Wimbledon, where the pair put on a united front and were pictured laughing together.

During the interview she appeared to cast doubt on the authenticity of that seemingly affable appearance, saying: ‘Nothing is what it looks like’.

‘Waity Katie’ jibes ‘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 believed she had been singled out because she was ‘not just British’. She said: ‘I think the volume of what was coming in and the interest was greater because of social media, because of the fact that I was not just British…

‘If they can compare what the experience that I went through was similar to what has been shared with us, Kate was called Waity Katie, waiting to marry William.

‘While I imagine that was hard, and I do, I can’t picture what that felt like, this is not the same.’
