But during her infamous Oprah interview the Duchess of Sussex hit back at the story, claiming it was she who was made to cry by Kate.
An extract from Valentine Low’s book “Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind The Crown”, now claims Meghan was “obsessed” that the record be put straight following the incident.
The Duchess of Sussex was allegedly desperate for the palace to “put something out” denying the story.
Published on Mail Online, the extract reads: “The truth is that, after the dress fitting, Meghan had become obsessed with trying to persuade the palace press office to put something out denying the story.
“However, they (the Palace) were equally adamant that it would be a serious mistake to start briefing about personal stories relating to differences between members of the Royal Family.”
Low then claims that the Palace wanted to avoid commenting on “personal tittle-tattle”.
The extract continues: “Not only did they not want to brief against other royals, but they feared it would create a precedent, making it harder in future for them to avoid commenting on personal tittle-tattle.
“It would also fan the flames of the story, ensuring it continued to fill the pages of the newspapers for several days to come.
“This became a major point of contention between Meghan and her media advisers.
“On Oprah, Meghan went further than denying the Kate-in-tears story, however. Instead, she said, the reverse had happened.”
It comes after Royal biographer Tom Bower claimed unnamed sources told him Meghan and Kate disagreed about the fit of Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress ahead of Meg’s wedding.
Bower also said he was told the pair could not agree on whether the bridesmaids “should wear tights” at the ceremony.
