An adorable story about Kate Middleton breaking down when she saw Princess Charlotte in her bridesmaid dress at Meghan and Harry’s wedding rehearsal may not be true.

Reports have emerged that the real reason Kate was left in tears was actually down the the Duchess of Sussex and her “strict” wedding demands.

An insider claimed the emotional incident followed a “stressful” dress fitting — just weeks before Meghan, 37, married Prince Harry, The Sun reports.

Apparently when approached for comment on the claims, royal aides did not deny the incident to the publication.

Just yesterday though, the story surrounding the tearful moment had been extremely cute, as it was claimed Kate got teary when she saw three-year-old Charlotte in her dress for the first time.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 36, had just given birth to Prince Louis at the time and was said to be “feeling quite emotional”, a source told The Telegraph.

It was a touching story amid a frenzy of claims that Meghan and Kate aren’t getting along and neither are William, 36, and Harry, 34. 

“Kate and Meghan are very different people,” a source told the Daily Mail. “They don’t really get on.”

While a seperate story suggested things between the leading ladies were fine, it was the boys that had the problem.

“Kate and Meghan are very different people and they don’t have a lot in common but they have made an effort to get along,” a source told Vanity Fair. “Any issues are between the brothers.”

No comment has been made by the palace regarding any of the claims since the whispers began, which followed news Prince Harry and Meghan were moving from Kensington Palace to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor ahead of the arrival of their first child in April.
