Kate and Meghan row: Journalist who broke rift story shares insight – who WAS crying?


THE JOURNALIST who broke the rumoured rift between Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan Markle over Princess Charlotte’s dress explained the truth and origin of the story.

Appearing on This Morning, Ms Tominey defended her story by stating there are many members within the royal households who see and hear different things and that perhaps many things could be true rather than contradict each other.

She said: “Because there’s always people briefing on all sides, so there are different households and different principals as they’re called.

“Members of the Royal Family that you’re dealing with on a daily basis about the stories you’re writing.”

Holly Willoughby then interrupted and asked whether Ms Tominey thought Meghan was lying.

She scoffed and replied: “No, but I think like any story maybe it was more nuanced.

“When I originally reported it, I said Kate was left in tears and I said it was confused, like what had happened here?

“But I did get it well-sourced and I’ve subsequently received messages saying that story was accurate.

“Did they both end up in tears? Did Meghan not know that Kate was in tears?

“She’s claiming that Kate had given her an apology and a bunch of flowers and a card, is Meghan in a position to comment whether the Duchess of Cambridge was upset by this?”

During her sit-down with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan explained her side of the story with regards to her “falling out” with Kate Middleton.

While reports stated that Meghan reduced Kate to tears, the Duchess of Sussex said it was the other way round which ended up with Kate giving her an apology gift.

Meghan said that it was a “turning point” for her time in the Royal Family but stressed that she believes Kate is a “good person” and has made up with her.

At the time, Camilla Tominey broke the story after two insiders approached her about the incident.

Meghan also revealed she contemplated taking her life and that the Royal Family had “concerns” about baby Archie’s skin tone before he was born.

She was asked by Oprah if Archie’s skin being “too brown” would be an issue for the Royal Family.

Meghan replied “If that is the assumption you are making, that is a pretty safe one”.
