“This is Meghan’s nuclear option,” a source told The Sun. “If she has chosen to speak candidly about her time with Kate then the damage that could be done to the monarchy is vast.

“She has the power to lay bare just how bad things really were between her, Harry, William and Kate.”

Rumours of a rift have circulated since 2018.

Despite the claims, a source close to Oprah denies that Meghan has anything but “kind words” for Kate in the interview.

ED! has contacted reps for Buckingham Palace for comment.
