In 2018, multiple British outlets published a story that claimed the mom-of-two caused Kate to cry due to a heated argument over dresses the flower girls would wear at Meghan and Harry's nuptials in May. However, in the actress' 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey, she insisted it was the other way around, and it was the newly appointed Princess of Wales who caused her to burst into tears.
According to Low, the incident weighed heavily on the mother-of-two.
"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," the author stated. "[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."
The royal aficionado explained that the palace normally choses to ignore tabloid stories because if they responded, it would "fan the flames of the story."

Elsewhere in Meghan's televised tell-all, she shared that Kate "brought me flowers and a note, apologizing. She did what I would do if I knew that I hurt someone."
"I’m not sharing that piece about Kate in any way to be disparaging to her," she continued. "I think it’s really important for people to understand the truth."
After the interview aired, a royal insider claimed the "narrative" the Duchess of Sussex was portraying wasn't accurate. Plus, Kate allegedly "didn’t like that she was called out by name when many of the other members of the royal family were not."
