In response, Meghan is alleged to have written: "Right, and I told you the tailor has been standing by since 8am. Here. At KP. Can you take Charlotte to have it altered, as the other mums are doing?"

However, Kate is said to have disagreed with this, and replied "all the dresses need to be remade" adding that her own wedding planner agreed with her on the matter.

Kate's messages were said to have left Meghan in tears

In an attempt to calm the situation down, Meghan asked the royal if she was aware of the situation that was going on with her father, Thomas Markle, at the time, to which Kate responded that she was.

Harry claimed that the final interactions between the pair saw Meghan say: "I'm not sure what else to say. If the dress doesn't fit then please take Charlotte to see Ajay. He's been waiting all day," with Kate only responding with: "Fine."
