Meghan Markle was "beyond the pale" for claiming Kate Middleton made her cry knowing she was "powerless to fight back", a reported source claims.
The Duchess of Sussex allegedly enraged Prince William by naming the Duchess of Cambridge in her Oprah Winfrey tell-all, the royal insider told the Mail Online.
They said: "Much has been made of the troubles between Kate and Meghan, and William and Harry – but perhaps the biggest strains now exist between William and Meghan.
"First and foremost, William cannot countenance the way Meghan has treated his wife…. to name Kate so publicly during the Oprah interview as the person who made her cry was beyond the pale. Meghan would have been acutely aware that Kate is powerless to fight back.
"Despite her growing confidence in public, Kate is a deeply sensitive woman who likes to stay behind-the-scenes as much as possible to support her family and the country. William thinks the way she has been treated is unfair."
Meghan was previously reported to have "left Kate in tears" over a bust-up about Princess Charlotte's bridesmaids dress before her wedding to Prince Harry in November 2018.
Later reports claimed that the “rift” began when Kate said the bridesmaids should follow royal protocol by wearing tights which Meghan disagreed with.
Kate has not spoken publicly about the interview.

But the pregnant former Suits actress, 39, addressed the claims in her Oprah bombshell last month, saying: "The reverse happened.
"A few days before the wedding she was upset about something, pertaining to… the flower girl dresses, and it made me cry. And it really hurt my feelings.
"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.

"I'm not sharing that piece about Kate in any way to be disparaging to her."
William and Harry recently reunited for two hours after the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral — sparking hopes of peace between them.
It has since been claimed, however, that Harry could pull out of a planned return to the UK this summer – after he was "shocked" by the frosty reception he received at Prince Philip's funeral.
The Daily Star has approached representatives for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for comment.
