Kate Middleton Fights Back Against 'False Misrepresentations' In Article About Meghan Markle

Taylor Sakellis 27 May 2020

Kate Middleton is an angel. You know who else is an angel? Meghan Markle! And you know what's getting so old?! Trying to pin these two legends against each other! If you think I've had enough, imagine how Kate feels!

Well actually, we don't have to ~imagine~ how Kate feels. We can just read Kensington Palace's statement about the latest article to publish false stories about the royal family.

Earlier this week, British tabloid magazine Tatler ran a cover story on Kate.

They crowned HRH The Duchess of Cambridge as "Catherine the Great" and, while the article praises Kate for her hard work, it comes at the expense of her brother-in-law, Prince Harry, and his wife, goddess Meghan Markle.

Tatler writes: "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. It was a gruelling attempt to buffer the barrage of bad news destabilising the House of Windsor on a near-daily basis."

A source claims that "Kate knows what the country needs and wants. Championing how to raise your children is perfect."

"Kate is furious about the larger workload. Of course she’s smiling and dressing appropriately but she doesn’t want this. She feels exhausted and trapped," the source continued.

"She’s working as hard as a top CEO, who has to be wheeled out all the time, without the benefits of boundaries and plenty of holidays."

The article alleges that Kate never "pulled Meghan under her wing" and that she and her husband Prince William were "circumspect from the beginning" about Meghan, which upset Harry.

It goes on to say that Kate has "a ruthless survival streak. [...] She keeps her head down because the prize of being queen is so great. She models herself on the Queen and now speaks like the Queen."

This TBH INSANE piece of FICTION also speaks about Kate’s family, claiming that her mother, Carole, is "the mummy [Prince William] always wanted."

Tatler also went on to bash Carole, citing "sources" that said she is "the most difficult client" to work with and "a terrible snob."

Tatler also claimed that Kate and William had a "falling out" with their neighbors and friends, Rose Hanbury and her husband, Marquess of Cholmondeley, over "Rose’s apparent closeness to William," aka AN AFFAIR ALLEGATION!

This Tatler piece did not go over very well on social media.

Some people felt like it was a bit of stretch to try to make Kate seem like she was mad at Meghan, who has been minding her own business in LA!

Others fought back at the idea that the Duchess was "exhausted" and claimed she had no right to be.

"What does Kate Middleton do besides making babies and dealing with Prince William side pieces," tweeted one user.

Now, it's important to remember that this Tatler article is all allegations from "sources," which means it cannot and SHOULD NOT be taken as fact!

SO LEAVE MEGS AND KATE ALONE, OKAY?!

Not only did this highly speculated and controversial article not go over well on social media, it didn't go over well with the Duchess of Cambridge, who gave a statement through the Kensington Palace.

"This story contains a swathe of inaccuracies and false misrepresentations which were not put to Kensington Palace prior to publication," the Palace spokesperson said in a statement.

YOU TELL 'EM, SIS!

Since Kate's statement, there have been some wild conspiracies going around the internet. The Tatler editor-in-chief is now claiming Kensington Palace worked with them on this story, though I PERSONALLY find that very hard to believe.
