Did Prince Charles walk Meghan Markle down aisle to heal the growing feud with Kate Middleton?

The sister-in-law’s tense relationship has been brewing for a year after the Prince of Wales tried to smooth things over ahead of the Royal Wedding.

He requested the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge invite Prince Harry and Meghan to their countryside home Anmer Hall near Sandringham in hopes to make Meghan feel like a welcomed member of the family.

However, the meeting was spoiled by a “ghastly row”.

A senior Royal aide told The Mail on Sunday that Meghan was judged to be “downright rude” upon arrival.

The aide added: “Kate had a quite word with Meghan. It escalated rapidly after Meghan complained to Harry that she had been ‘told off’.”

By the week of the wedding things appeared to have reached a boiling point.

It was reported that the tension between Meghan and Kate was at fever-pitch after the Duchess of Cambridge was reduced to tears over a dress fitting for bridesmaid Princess Charlotte.

At the same time Meghan’s father Thomas Markle pulled out of the wedding, which left an important role to be filled.

Within hours it had emerged Meghan asked Prince Charles to step in and walk her down the aisle for her big day.

At the time Kensington Palace stressed he was “pleased to welcome Ms Markle to the Royal Family this way”.

This is the latest claim in the saga about the Duchess’ frosty relationship that appears to escalating.

After last year’s row at Anmer Hall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge may be spending Christmas with the Middleton clan at Buckleberry Manor in Berkshire to avoid repeating the experience.

Pregnant Meghan and Prince Harry will spend the big day with the Queen in Sandringham.

Kensington Palace has started a “mole hunt” to find whoever is responsible for a number of unfavourable leaks about the frostiness between Kate and Meghan, according to The Mail on Sunday.

It comes after a series of potentially damaging stories have appeared in the UK press focusing on the growing tensions between the sister-in-laws.

One includes Meghan Markle reportedly being sharp with her staff, including reducing her PA, Melissa Toubati, 39, to tears and ultimately leading to her handing in her resignation.

And a furious Duchess of Cambridge recently slapped down Meghan after she spoke rudely to a member of Kate's staff telling her doing so was "unacceptable".

There has also been speculation the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are moving out of Kensington Palace to Frogmore Cottage in the grounds of Windsor Castle due to tensions between the two households.
