Furious Kate Middleton reportedly shut Meghan Markle up for being rude to her staff; palace denies row
Rumors of rising tension between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton have been gathering momentum as new information has surfaced of a feud between the two when Meghan berated a member of the Duchess of Cambridge's staff.
Daily Mail reports that Kate Middleton got into an intense argument with Meghan after she 'b*****ed' a member of her staff before the latter's wedding. Allegedly, the Duchess of Cambridge sternly told Markle it was 'unacceptable' to target her aides. The incident happened before Prince Harry's and Meghan's royal wedding in Windsor. Kate said, "They're my staff and I speak to them." A source revealed, "It's a tricky situation but it was a one-off and they are determined to maintain a positive relationship even though they are obviously very different in their approach."
Other sources have also claimed that insiders are concerned about Meghan's 'authoritative' and 'abrupt' style. Apparently, Meghan clashed with Buckingham Palace over the smell at St George's Chapel, where she married Prince Harry. Reports claim that Meghan wanted air fresheners to be used in the 15th-century chapel but was told it was not appropriate. "Apparently Meghan didn't like the smell of the chapel, which, as you would expect, is a little musty. It's not unpleasant at all, though. It just smells how you would expect an old building to smell. And that's something the Royal Family are particularly used to," a source revealed.
The source continued, "This is a place that has held royal weddings, funerals and even contains the Royal Vault. I don't believe a request of that nature had been made before. Royal Household staff stepped in and told her office politely, but firmly, that this was the Queen's Chapel and it simply wasn't appropriate. I don't believe they said no because they thought it could affect the chapel in any way. It was simply the principle of the thing."
Reports also suggest that the fracture in the relationship between Meghan and Kate can be traced back to the time when the newlywed brought Kate to tears. She was left in tears after a bridesmaid's dress fitting for Princess Charlotte. While everything seemed hunky-dory to onlookers, there was a lot of underlying tension including violent pre-wedding disagreements. An insider revealed that “Kate had only just given birth to Prince Louis and was feeling quite emotional.” The tension between the royal wives is also being cited as one of the main reasons why Harry and Meghan are moving out of the Kensington Palace, where William and Kate also live. Royal sources have been working overtime to refute claims that there are tensions between Kate and Meghan and they want everyone to believe that the couple is moving to Frogmore Cottage, near Windsor, out of privacy and space concerns.
