William was reeling over Harry and Meghans Oprah allegations while Kate focused on supporting him

Prince William and Kate Middleton had different reactions to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview, a royal expert has claimed.

In the interview, which aired in March 2021, 40 year old Meghan made the allegations that Kate – who celebrated her 40th birthday with a collection of stunning photographs on Sunday – "made her cry" in a dress fitting before her wedding to Harry, 37.

But the most serious claim made was that a member of the Royal family had made racist comments about the colour of their son Archie's skin before he was even born.

And while 39 year old William was left "reeling", a royal expert has now detailed how Kate was "focused" on supporting her husband.

Writing in the Sunday Times Magazine, Roya Nikkhah explained how William was "'reeling', with his 'head all over the place', furious that his brother and sister-in-law had taken aim at his wife and his family, forcing him to state publicly: 'We are very much not a racist family.'

"Kate reacted differently. Instead of stamping her feet and demanding her right to reply, her focus turned to her husband.

"In the days after the interview her priority was William, not how she felt about what Harry and Meghan had done.

"She has focused on personal support for William in what has been a really sad time in his life. She never predicted the degree of falling out between them."

Last month, Kirstie Allsopp claimed that Kate was "left in tears" after she "confronted" Meghan for "being rude to staff."

Kirstie told the Telegraph: "Kate never ever loses her temper, but she found out Meghan was being rude to staff at Kensington Palace and she was angry with her.

"Then, Kate burst into tears because she'd lost control and she did take Meghan flowers to try and patch things up."

Meghan's lawyer has previously slammed bullying claims in the BBC documentary, The Princes and The Press.

Meghan's lawyer Jenny Afia said in the programme: "The overall allegation was that the Duchess of Sussex is guilty of bullying. Absolutely not.

"The first thing is to be really clear about what bullying is. What bullying actually means is improperly using power deliberately and repeatedly to hurt someone physically or emotionally.

"The Duchess of Sussex has absolutely denied ever doing that. That said, she wouldn't want to negate anyone's personal experience."
