MEGHAN Markle “threw Kate Middleton under a bus” and left Prince William “pretty damn cross”, it has been reported.
A royal author has said the claims made by the Duchess of Sussex during her bombshell Oprah interview has angered her in-laws.
In November 2018, it was reported that “Meghan left Kate in tears” over her demands for Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaids dress during a “stressful” fitting.
It was then subsequently claimed that the “rift” began when Kate said the bridesmaids should follow royal protocol by wearing tights which Meghan disagreed with.
But speaking during her bombshell interview with Oprah, Meghan said she was the one left in tears, not the other way around.
Asked if she made Kate cry, Meghan told Oprah: "The reverse happened. A few days before the wedding she was upset about something, pertaining to … the flower girl dresses, and it made me cry. And it really hurt my feelings.”
Now royal author Penny Junor has claimed that Meghan's comments would most likely have infuriated William.
Ms Junor told The Express: "I would have thought one of the things William was most cross about was the fact that Meghan threw Kate under the bus.
"It wasn't Harry, but it was his wife, and he must have known that she was going to do that and he clearly hasn't corrected it in any way.
"It depends how Kate is feeling.
"I must say I would be pretty damn cross."
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were said to be left deeply saddened after the interview, in which Prince Harry said Wills was "trapped" in the Firm, while revealing "conversations" with a member of the Royal Family around the colour of his unborn child's skin.
Kate has not spoken publicly about the interview once.
William and Harry recently reunited for two hours after the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral — sparking hopes of peace between them.
It has since been claimed, however, that Harry could pull out of a planned return to the UK this summer – after he was "shocked" by the frosty reception he received at Prince Philip's funeral.
It comes as Harry and Meghan are set to join A-listers Jennifer Lopez and Selena Gomez at a Covid concert to "reunite the world".
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been confirmed as some of the big names taking part in the Vax Live show on May 8.
Vax Live is being billed as an event to "reunite the world" with performances from a host of stars.
It is not yet clear what the couple will bring to the table at the music concert but they have been given a title of "campaign chairs".
They will lead a drive to raise money for COVAX – a vaccine-sharing program co-led by the World Health Organization.
The Sun Online has approached the palace for comment.
