Royal correspondent and Mail on Sunday's assistant editor Kate Mansey spoke to Palace Confidential and suggested that Markle's claim Kate Middleton made her cry affected Prince Harry and Prince William's bond.

"It was such a shame. It was described to me as civil which is palace courtier for what the rest of us would refer to as frosty," Mansey said as quoted by Express. "You do wonder whether it could be their kind of gift to the Queen to make up somehow. But there's been so much said obviously, Oprah."

She added, "I do think those comments aimed at Kate were extremely damaging to the brothers' friendship. Then we have this book coming out and who knows what will be in it."

Both of the royal princes are extremely protective of their wives. Thus, the drama between Markle and Middleton may have affected their relationship.

Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are often pitted against each other, probably because both are fashionable and are close in age. Six months after Prince Harry and Markle tied the knot, there were reports claiming she made the Duchess of Cambridge cry over the flower girl dress.

Oprah Winfrey asked Markle to address the report if it was true or not. Prince Harry's wife spoke about the issue and said it wasn't true and even set the record straight that "the reverse happened." She admitted that she didn't feel she was being protected because the palace didn't speak up to clear her name.

"The reverse happened," Markle was quoted by Page Six as saying suggesting it was Middleton who made her cry. "Everyone in the institution knew it wasn’t true."

The former actress added that Middleton reached out and apologized. The Duchess of Cambridge reportedly sent her flowers and note. She even complimented the future queen consort saying Middleton was "a good person."

"There wasn’t a confrontation. I don’t think it’s fair to her to get into the details because she apologized, and I’ve forgiven her," Markle added.
