It was a scuffle text message that turned into a real royal feud.
Prince Harry gives his side of Notorious The dress-fitting fallout between Meghan Markle and Kate Middletonto which the “Suits” star was said to be “crying to the floor”.
in his new memoirs “additional,” Middleton, 41, claims the wayward king, 38, started a passive-aggressive argument via text message four days before his 2018 wedding to Markle, 41.
Middleton’s daughter, Princess Charlotte, now 7, was set to serve as maid of honor at the royal wedding. According to Harry, Middleton sent Markle a letter to complain that the young man’s dress did not fit properly.
“Charlotte’s dress is too big, too long, too loose. She cried when I tried it on at home,” the Princess of Wales allegedly wrote to her soon-to-be sister-in-law.
In his memoirs, Harry explains that the dresses were “French haute couture” and she was Hand sewn to exact measurements without installation. The Duke of Sussex stated that it was “no big shock” when he discovered the dress didn’t quite fit.
At the time, Markle was in the midst of drama with her father, Thomas Markle, who was caught preparing paparazzi photos before the wedding. The busy bride then took one day to respond to Middleton’s complaint, according to Harry.
“Meg didn’t reply to Kate right away,” Prince wrote in his new book. “Yes, she had endless texts regarding the wedding, but mostly she was dealing with the chaos surrounding her dad. So the next morning, I texted Kate saying our tailor was on point.”
“I told you the tailor has been on standby since 8 o’clock,” Markle’s response was reported to have read. Here. In KP [Kensington Palace]. Can you take Charlotte to change her, like other moms do? “
According to Harry, this response “wasn’t enough” for Middleton, who instead insisted that all dresses “need to be renewed.”
Harry says in his book: “I asked Meg if Kate knew what was going on right now. With her father. Kate said she was well aware, but the dresses. And the wedding in four days!”
The prince adds that Middleton had “other problems with the way Meg was planning her wedding. Something about a party for page boys? He was rocking back and forth.”
The quarrel between the sisters reportedly ended with Middleton agreeing to take Charlotte to Markle’s tailor, where he bluntly wrote: “Good.”
But the bickering was allegedly too much for Markle to bear, with Harry saying he returned home to find his soon-to-be wife “crying on the floor.”
Markle insisted that “Kate meant no harm” during the back and forth and noted that the Princess of Wales arrived home the next morning with flowers and a card to apologize for any inconvenience.
However, the drama wasn’t over yet — the incident was quickly leaked to the media and became tabloid stuff.
Initial reports claimed that Markle made Middleton cry over the dressing altercation, which infuriated Harry as it was allegedly inaccurate.
Palace officials have allegedly refused to issue a public statement refuting such reports, further fueling the prince’s anger towards the royal family.

In a 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Markle stated that she was actually the one who broke down in tears during the altercation and complained that the staff refused to correct the record.
Speaking of Middleton, Markle stated: “I hope she would have wanted to rectify that, and maybe in the same way that the Palace won’t allow anyone else to deny her, they won’t, because she’s such a good person.”
Middleton has refused to speak publicly about the bridesmaid dress drama, taking the royal family’s motto “never complain, never explain”. It is unclear if she, too, was reduced to tears after the fight.
The palace told The Post it would not comment on any allegations in Harry’s book.
