The Duchess of Sussex was asked about a claim she had made the Duchess of Cambridge cry.

But Meghan hit back, saying the "reverse happened" and that Kate made her cry.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's chat with Oprah will air in full on ITV on Monday night and on ITV Hub, Courtesy of Harpo Productions/CBS.

Meghan said she did not want to be “disparaging to anyone” and claimed Kate apologised with flowers and a note “to take accountability”.

Before the show was aired, Prince William and Prince Charles were reportedly left "saddened" by the couple's decision to be interviewed by Oprah.

A source told DailyMirror: “The ­overriding feeling throughout this whole sorry saga is one where many people, especially the Prince of Wales and Duke of Cambridge, have been left immensely saddened.

“There is a distinct feeling inside the camp there must have been a better way to solve the issues by coming together, rather than the nuclear ­decision that has resulted in ­everything being discussed so publicly and without reason.

“When all is said and done, no one is likely to come off smelling of roses.”

Another source added: “The family do feel Meghan and Harry were given a lot of support, but of course ­questions will be raised as to what else could have been done to smooth the transition for them.
