MEGHAN Markle sensationally claimed during her Oprah Winfrey interview that it was Kate Middleton who made her cry over their bridesmaid dress row – not the other way round.
But Meghan’s friend Omid Scobie confidently declared in his biography that “no one cried”, casting further confusion over the incident.

In Finding Freedom, Omid stated: “There were no tears from anyone.”
Six months after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’ 2018 wedding, reports emerged that there had been an incident between Kate and Meghan over a fitting for the bridesmaid dresses.
Princess Charlotte had been chosen to be among Meghan’s six bridesmaids for her nuptials.
The Duchess of Sussex claimed in her Oprah Winfrey interview she was the one left in tears – saying Kate had been "upset about something" over the flower girl dresses in the lead up to the Royal Wedding.
And while Meghan said she had forgiven Kate, The Times claimed on Monday that the 39-year-old slammed the door in her sister-in-law's face when she took flowers to Nottingham Cottage – the Sussex's home at the time.
In the explosive sitdown chat with Oprah, Meghan said: "There wasn't a confrontation and I don't think it's fair to her to get into the details of that because she apologised, and I have forgiven her.
"What was hard to get over was being blamed for something that not only I didn't do, but that happened to me."

In November 2018, it was reported “Meghan left Kate in tears” over her demands for Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaids dress during a “stressful” fitting.
It was then subsequently claimed that the “rift” began when Kate said the bridesmaids should follow royal protocol by wearing tights which Meghan disagreed with.
But last weekend, a source claimed to the The Telegraph that the Duchesses fell out after Princess Charlotte‘s bridesmaid dress didn’t fit – which meant they had to schedule more fittings ahead of the big day.
During the interview with Oprah, Meghan said that Kate was a "good person".
But she said she had struggled after reports of the incident surfaced several months after the wedding – saying it had been a "turning point".
The Duchess of Sussex told Oprah Winfrey that “nothing is what it looks like” as she made a string of explosive allegations about her life in the Royal family.
The sisters-in-law attended the Wimbledon women's final in July 2019, and were famously pictured laughing together in the royal box during Serena Williams' showdown with Simona Halep.
Referencing the Wimbledon trip, Oprah asked: “Was it what it looks like? You are two sisters-in-law out there in the world, getting to know each other.
“Was she helping you, embracing you into the family, helping you adjust?"
Appearing to dodge the question, Meghan replied: “My understanding and my experience for the past four years is that it’s nothing like what it looks like.”
Prince William and Kate Middleton are said to feel “desperately sad” about estrangement of Meghan and Harry, but still hold out hope of a reconciliation.
An aide spoke of the estrangement of the Sussexes from the royal family as seeming “irreversible”.
During the interview, Meghan also revealed she told Prince Harry she “didn’t want to be alive anymore” and begged the Firm for mental health support – but was denied help as it “wouldn’t be good for the institution”.
The Duchess also claimed that Archie wasn’t made a prince after “concerns and conversations" about “how dark” his skin would be when he was born.
In a response, the palace said the comments would be taken "very seriously" but added that "some recollections may vary" when it came to the allegations.
The bombshell revelations come amid fears Meghan may never return to Britain after the chat.
During the Oprah chat, Meghan and Prince Harry revealed they are having a baby GIRL.
