Meghan Markle’s bridesmaid dress maker Ajay Mirpuri has spoken out about the alleged argument between the bride and her sister-in-law Kate Middleton.
For Prince Harry and Meghan’s 2018 nuptials, then-three year old Princess Charlotte was one of a handful of bridesmaids.
In the run up to Harry and Meghan’s big day, reports surfaced that the Duchess of Sussex had made Kate cry, for the former Suits actress to later debunk these claims in her 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey where she said “the reverse happened”.
Tensions rose between the pair as Kate labelled the dress as being “too baggy” on Charlotte – who cried over the poorly fitting dress – and allegedly insisted that it was remade.
They’re also said to have had a disagreement over whether the flower girls should wear tights or not, with the Princess of Wales stating it was royal protocol to do so.
Nearly five years on from the ordeal, the Duke of Sussex addressed the matter in his tell-all memoir, which hit shelves yesterday, Tuesday 10 January.
He said he found his wife “sobbing on the floor”.
In light of this, Ajay has spoken out about it all – but insisted he never witnessed any disagreements between the two royals.
“If anything happened in the background, it didn't happen in front of me,” he told Mail Online. “Weddings are stressful at the best of times – and especially one at this high level; you've got to respect that.”
Ajay continued: “They were faced with a problem like anyone gets at a wedding, with last minute hitches. I can understand why anybody would be upset if the dresses weren't fitting – it's nerve-wracking.
“I feel for them all, because you wouldn't want the children to go out on a big stage in an ill-fitting dress – and that's what they were.”
And it wasn’t just Charlotte’s dress that needed amending, but all six bridesmaids.
