Meghan Markle Addresses Rumors That She Made Kate Middleton Cry: 'The Reverse Happened'
During her sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey, which aired Sunday, Meghan spoke about reports that she left Kate in tears leading up to her royal wedding due to a disagreement regarding bridesmaid dresses.
"The reverse happened," Meghan said.
She continued, "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, and she apologized and she brought me flowers and a note apologizing."
"I actually think it's — I don't think it's fair to her to get into the details of that because she apologized," she continued. "And I've forgiven her."
Meghan said what she found "shocking" that the story made the press several months after the wedding.
"I would have never wanted that to come out about her ever, even though it happened," she said.
Meghan called Kate a "good person" and spoke of people pitting them against each other.
"If you love me, you don't have to hate her. And if you love her, you don't have to hate me," she said.
She added that the media "really seem to want a narrative of a hero and a villain."
