“The whole interview beggared belief. She didn’t know the words to the national anthem? Please! Harry has been singing it since he was five.

“The Palace refused her help when her mental health was suffering? I don’t buy it. Harry is patron of a mental health charity.”

During her chat with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan alleged that Kate had made her cry in the lead-up to her wedding.

Back in 2018, months after the wedding, reports had claimed that Meghan made Kate cry in a disagreement about bridesmaid dresses.

However, Meghan told Oprah that the “reverse happened”.

Gary told the Mail on Sunday: “I don’t believe for a moment that Kate made Meghan cry. I’ve known Kate since she was born and she doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. It’s just simply not in her nature.

“She’s even lovelier on the inside than on the outside. If anyone had a hissy fit, it must have been Meghan.

“Kate would have been trying to make the peace. I would fight for Kate’s honour until the day I die. She is the most spectacular person I’ve ever met.”
