'It's Important For People To Know The Truth': Meghan Markle Claims Kate Middleton 'Made Her Cry' Over 'Flower Girl Dresses'
Setting the record straight! Meghan Markle revealed she didn't make Kate Middleton cry during her wedding. Instead, the mother-of-three upset Meghan over "flower girl dresses."
"The reverse happened, and I don’t say that to be disparaging to anyone because it was a really hard week of the wedding and she was upset about something but she owned it — she brought me flowers, she apologized, a note apologizing – she did what I would do if I knew I hurt someone," Meghan told Oprah Winfrey after she asked if she made Kate cry. "What was shocking – six, seven months after our wedding that the reverse of that would be out in the world. I would have never wanted that to come out about her, ever, even though it had happened. I protected that from ever coming out in the world."
"A few days before the wedding, she was upset about something pertaining — the flower girl dresses, and it made me cry and it really hurt my feelings," the former actress explained. "I thought in the context of everything leading up to the wedding, that it didn’t make sense to not just be doing whatever anyone else was doing, knowing what I was going through with my dad and what not."

She added, "There wasn’t a confrontation, I don’t think it’s fair to her to get into the details of that because she apologized and I have forgiven her. What was hard to get over was being blamed for something that not only I didn’t do, that happened to me, and the people who were part of our wedding going to our comms. team and saying this didn’t happen."

"Everyone in the institution knew it wasn’t true. I am sharing that piece about Kate not to be disparaging to her, I think it’s important for people to understand the truth," she admitted. "A lot of it that was fed into it by the media – I would hope that she would want it corrected because she’s a good person. I think so much of what I have seen play out is this idea of polarity where if you love me, you don’t have to hate me. If you love her, you don’t need to hate me."
