Kate Middleton and Prince William hit back at 'inaccurate' news reports

Meghan Markle finally fell out with future sister-in-law Kate Middleton at the rehearsal for her royal wedding - because of a squabble they had over wearing tights, a friend has claimed.

"In the wake of Harry and Meghan standing down as senior royals and seeking exile in North America, Kate took on 11 royal engagements in a month - three in the space of 24 hours".

We all know who won the squabble, as Meghan and Harry's gaggle of attendants did not, in the end, wear tights.

A friend has spilled the beans on the reason behind Kate and Meghan's rumoured pre-wedding fallout.

A spokesperson for Conde Nast, publisher of the magazine, said: "Tatler's Editor-in-Chief Richard Dennen stands behind the reporting of Anna Pasternak and her sources".

It's prompted an unusual denial from Kensington Palace, issuing a statement that reads: "This story contains a swathe of inaccuracies and false misrepresentations which were not put to Kensington Palace prior to publication".

Tatler's coverage also revisited claims that courtiers found Meghan hard to work for, allegations which saw her nicknamed "Duchess Difficult" by the British press.

The article also claims Kate was annoyed about the increase in her workload when the couple moved to America earlier this year - a claim the palace denies. "I feel very mean", she joked.

The claims are backed by pictures of the wedding day, which appear to show the bridesmaids with bare legs, while those at Kate and William's 2011 wedding wore tights, in line with royal protocol.

However a Tatler spokesman responded claiming Kensington Palace knew it was running the "Catherine the Great" cover months ago, according to ITV.

Another added: "Kate is furious about the larger workload".

Meanwhile, this week a source told Tatler magazine: "William and Catherine really wanted to be hands-on parents and the Sussexes have effectively thrown their three children under a bus. Of course she's smiling and dressing appropriately but she doesn't want this", the friend reportedly said.

This has been revealed by a friend of the Duchess who also states that the latter has been working as a CEO without any benefit of boundaries or holidays.

The Queen is in Windsor Castle with her husband Prince Philip.

Kate and William have stepped up to fill those gaps, and in the last few weeks have made calls to charities across the United Kingdom, become bingo callers for a care home game, and voiced a mental health minute that was played out on radio stations.
