New details have emerged about the alleged incident between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton at a dress fitting leading up to Meghan’s royal wedding.
The story goes that the two duchesses butted heads over flower girl dresses, leading to a disagreement that left one of the women in tears.
According to the Duchess of Sussex, she was the one who cried but she “forgave” Kate for the misunderstanding between them.
Now royal author Andrew Morton, who wrote Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, has shed new light on what that forgiveness looked like.
“The spat concerning the bridesmaids’ outfits now behind them, Meghan had since given Kate and her six closest friends gold bracelets designed by Californian jeweler Lisette Polny as a thank-you for their help and support,” Andrew penned.
“It was an elegant peace offering, both women professional enough to know that there was no gain in showing dissent or disdain.”
Morton describes the gold piece of jewelry, by Californian jeweler Lisette Polny, as an “elegant peace offering”.
He writes: “The spat concerning the bridesmaids’ outfits now behind them, Meghan had since given Kate and her six closest friends gold bracelets designed by Californian jeweler Lisette Polny as a thank-you for their help and support.”
According to Morton’s updated book, the duchesses well and truly put the “spat” behind them after Meghan sent Kate the sweet gift.
And the Duchess of Sussex herself previously said that Kate also sent her a peace offering in the form of a bouquet of flowers after the supposed incident.
It was originally reported that Meghan made the Duchess of Cambridge cry during a disagreement over a dress for Princess Charlotte ahead of Meghan’s 2018 wedding.
