Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan Markle had 'row' over young bridesmaids' tights ahead of royal wedding
The Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex had a “row” over whether the young bridesmaids at the royal wedding should wear tights, it has been claimed, as Tatler magazine publishes a profile of “Catherine the Great”. The society magazine, which claims to have spoken to numerous friends of the Duchess of Cambridge, has described an “incident” ahead of the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, in which the Duchess of Cambridge is said to have been left in tears. "Then there was an incident at the wedding rehearsal,” a source named only as a ‘friend’ told the magazine. “It was a hot day and apparently there was a row over whether the bridesmaids should wear tights or not. “Kate, following protocol, felt that they should. Meghan didn't want them to.” Photographs from the 2018 Sussex wedding, (below, top) appear to show the bridesmaids with bare legs, while those from the Cambridge wedding in 2011 (below, bottom) show even the youngest members of the party wearing tights.
