- Kate Middleton and Prince William are "furious" about Tatler magazine's cover story about the Duchess (opens in new tab).
- The palace sent legal letters on Kate's behalf, and sources say the piece is "full of lies."
Last week, Tatler Magazine published a truly !!! cover story about Kate Middleton (opens in new tab), wherein they allegedly spoke to a buncha the Duchess’ “friends” who claimed Kate is upset about her workload following Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's departure, and that she's “exhausted” due to her increased duties. They even dished on Kate's “row” with Meghan (opens in new tab)at the royal wedding, claiming they argued over Princess Charlotte's tights.
Kensington Palace already released a statement denying (opens in new tab) the "swathe of inaccuracies & false misrepresentations" made in the magazine, but now it looks like William and Kate are taking legal action. Sources tell The Daily Mail (opens in new tab) that Kensington Palace sent legal letters on Kate's behalf to have the article taken down. Apparently, the palace is "furious" about claims that Kate feels "exhausted and trapped," as well as comments the article makes about her weight.
Meanwhile, a Tatler spokesperson tells Entertainment Tonight (opens in new tab), “Tatler’s Editor-in-Chief Richard Dennen stands behind the reporting of Anna Pasternak and her sources. Kensington Palace knew we were running the ‘Catherine the Great’ cover months ago and we asked them to work together on it. The fact they are denying they ever knew is categorically false.”
