Meghan and Kate were not dueling duchesses, the book claims

There was no feud between the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex – the two women had nothing in common, according to a new book.

The authors of Finding Freedom, serialized by The Times and The Sunday Times, claim that Meghan had hoped Kate would contact her, but “ didn’t lose any sleep ” about it if she didn’t.

In addition to some shameless revelations about the growing bitterness of the Sussexes towards the royal family and the machinery of the monarchy, the book also attempts to debunk some myths.

According to the co-authors, Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie, the alleged gap between the two couples stemmed from a growing coolness between Harry and William – not Meghan and Kate.

Apparently, the press was too quick to blame the Sussexes’ decision to move to Windsor on the “ dueling duchesses, ” say the authors, when Harry felt suffocated by his brother.

The authors wrote, “The truth was that Meghan and Kate just didn’t know each other very well.”

They claim that the Duchess’s relationship had not really progressed since they first met, and Meghan was disappointed with Kate’s lack of support during her hardest times with the press.

But rumors that Meghan made Kate cry during the wedding dress that suits Princess Charlotte are false, the book emphasizes.

Reports that Meghan’s “strict demands” had left Kate in tears that “confused” those present.

A source there said: “Some of the children did not cooperate and a lot happened.

“Everyone tried to help where they could, but it is never easy with children when assembling. There were no tears from anyone.

And in the end the editing was fine. Kate and Meghan were both a bit stressed, but professional in the room and there were other people. ‘

The claims that Meghan angered Kate when she supposedly yelled at a member of her team are also untrue, the authors argue.

The story is said to relate to Kensington Palace deputy communications secretary Katrina McKeever who left her post at the royal family in September 2018.

The authors wrote, “Even Kensington Palace did not understand the bizarre story.

“McKeever left well with the Sussexes, who sent her a handwritten letter and a huge floral arrangement when she left.”
