Prince Harry says Meghan Markle accuses Kate Middleton of having ‘Baby Brain’ causing major drama

Prince Harry in his upcoming memoir Spare partsis reportedly giving more details about what happened between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton over the flower girl disagreement they had ahead of Harry and Meghan’s 2018 wedding.

Daily Mail reports Meghan landed in hot water after accusing her future sister-in-law of having “baby brains”. Kate gave birth to Prince Louis about a month before Meghan and Harry’s wedding.

A “well-placed” source said so Daily Mail, In the book, Harry says there was a discussion about the timing of the wedding rehearsal and flower girl dresses, and Kate was very upset. Meghan said Kate must have ‘baby brain’ because of her hormones.

“It caused a huge row because Meghan was told she wasn’t close enough to her sister-in-law to discuss her hormones and that’s not the way people talk to each other in the royal family,” the source continued. “The book makes it clear that Meghan felt the fallout wasn’t her fault, but it doesn’t exactly make her look very good either.”

Meghan turned to the flower girl story during her March 2021 Oprah interview and how the tabloids presented it as her making Kate cry. The royal family would not let her comment on the story, she said, in keeping with their “never complain, never explain” policy.

Meghan said: “The story with Kate that didn’t happen was really, really difficult and something that I think was when everything really changed.”

“None. [I didn’t make Kate cry],” she added. “No, no, the reverse happened. And I’m not saying that to put anyone down, because it was a really rough week with the wedding and she was upset about something, but she owned it. and she apologized and she brought me flowers and a note saying she was sorry and she did what I would do if I knew I hurt someone. Just to take responsibility for it.

“What was shocking was, what, six, seven months after our wedding, the reverse of that would be out in the world [the story suggesting Meghan made Kate cry]. I would never have wanted it to come out about her, even if it had. I protected it from ever being out in the world. A few days before the wedding she was upset about something about – yes, the question was correct about flower girl dresses and it made me cry and it really hurt my feelings and I thought in the context of everything else that was going on. in the days leading up to the wedding, it didn’t make sense not to just do what everyone else was doing, trying to be supportive, knowing what was going on with my dad and what not.

“There wasn’t a confrontation and I actually think it’s…I don’t think it’s fair to her to get into the details of it because she apologized and I’ve forgiven her,” Meghan said. “What was hard to get over was being blamed for something that not only I didn’t do, but that happened to me and the people who were part of my wedding who went to my communications team and said, I know this didn’t happen. I don’t have to tell them what actually happened, but I can at least go on to say, ‘She didn’t make her cry.’ Everyone in the institution knew that wasn’t true. I am not sharing that piece about Kate in any way to disparage her. I think it’s really important for people to understand the truth, but I also think a lot of it was fed into the media. Look, I would hope she wouldhave wanted it fixed. And maybe in the same way that the palace wouldn’t let anyone else turn it down, they wouldn’t let her because she’s a good person, and I think so much of what I’ve seen play out was this idea about polarity where if you love me you don’t have to hate her and if you love her you don’tdon’t have to hate me.”

Harry would continue to claim in his and Meghan’s Netflix docuseries Harry and Meghan that his brother, Prince William, and Kate Middleton’s press office would later start planting negative stories about him and Meghan to the tabloids.

“You know there are leaks, but there’s also planting stories,” Harry explained. “So if the communications teams want to be able to remove a negative story about their principle, they’ll act and give you something about someone else’s principle. So the offices end up working against each other. It’s kind of this weird understanding or acceptance that happens.”

“And you can always say, ‘I didn’t know about this’ or ‘Don’t be ridiculous, it would never happen. Are you suggesting I condone this?’ It’s like, ‘No. But what I’m asking is, have you done anything to stop it?’ And the answer is no,” he continued. “William and I both saw what happened in our father’s office, and we made a pact that we would never let that happen in our office.”

“I’d much rather be destroyed in the press than play along with this game or this trade,” Harry said. “And to see my brother’s office copy the very thing that we both promised we would never ever do, it was heartbreaking.”
