Kate Middleton's uncle says Duchess "doesn't have a mean bone in her body" after Oprah interview

"If anyone had a hissy fit, it must have been Meghan."

Kate Middleton's uncle Gary Goldsmith has addressed rumours that his niece made Meghan Markle cry over bridesmaid dresses a few years ago.

This marks this first time Kate's family have spoken about the Harry and Meghan interview with Oprah Winfrey.

During the CBS special, Meghan addressed an incident that happened while she was planning her wedding. At the time, it was reported that Kate made Meghan cry over Princess Charlotte's dress, but the Duchess of Sussex claimed that this was not the case.

Markle told Oprah: "A few days before the wedding she was upset about something - yes the issue was correct, about the flower girl dresses - and it made me cry and it really hurt my feelings."

Meghan clarified that Kate apologised, and sent a note and some flowers to clear the air.

"She was upset about something," Meghan said. "But she owned it and she apologised."

Now, Kate's uncle Gary has given his two cents on the matter.

He told the Mail on Sunday: "I’ve known Kate since she was born and she doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. It's just simply not in her nature."

He continued: "She's even lovelier on the inside than on the outside. If anyone had a hissy fit, it must have been Meghan."

Ouch.

But that's not all.

He added: "Kate would have been trying to make the peace. I would fight for Kate's honour until the day I die. She's the most spectacular person I've ever met."

Bit extreme if you ask me.

Since Harry and Meghan's tell-all interview, the royal family have just briefly commented on the revelations.

Last month, the Queen said that the entire family are "saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan."

She described the issues raised as "concerning".

Prince William, meanwhile, insisted that they are "very much not a racist family".
