According to Royal biographer Ingrid Seward, Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge “voiced concerns” after Prince Harry failed to ask Thomas Markle permission to marry Meghan Markle. Prince Harry and Meghan became engaged after nearly two years of dating each other, and months after the former actress moved to the UK to be with the royal. But Harry failed to contact Thomas Markle about his intentions to pop the question, according to Ms Seward.

Instead, he proposed over a roast chicken meal at Kensington Palace.

And he did actually meet Thomas Markle at all before their marriage, despite tradition to ask a father-in-law permission for someones hand in marriage.

According to Ms Seward, this caused some “concern” for Kate, Meghan’s future sister in law.

Ms Seward added how “Kate voiced concerns” to the family after Harry and Meghan stayed at her and Prince William’s Anmer Hall home in Norfolk for a weekend.

The commentator also claimed the fact that Harry did not meet his future father in-law was unusual for royal protocol.

The List narrator Hanna Cleason said: “She (Kate) could not understand why Harry had never met his future father-in-law, 

“Nor why Meghan, who Harry assured was the one and ‘ticked all the boxes’, appeared embarrassed about her family and unwilling to speak about them apart from her mother.”

Despite this, the Duchess of Cambridge was quick to publicly show support for the new couple.

The Duchess of Cambridge told the press at a Royal engagement that Harry and Meghan should “enjoy this happy moment.”

Prince Harry later told BBC Radio 4 Today Programme that the Royal Family were “like the family Meghan never had”.

But relations were later strained after the Duchess of Sussex turned down an invitation to the wedding of Kate’s sister, Pippa Middleton.

According to publication, Page 6 Meghan pulled out of Pippa’s wedding “through fear she would steal the show”.

The shocking revelation comes as Meghan Markle’s claim that she was given a standing ovation after her speech at International Women’s Day at the UN has been debunked by a video of the event.

In an article for Elle Magazine, Meghan claimed she got a standing ovation after finishing the speech and even asserted that it was started by then-Secretary General of the UN, Ban Ki-moon.

Meghan wrote: “When I gave a speech for International Women’s Day, and Ban Ki-moon led the standing ovation, I thought, ‘This right here is the point.’”

In a video of the event, the audience can be seen giving enthusiastic applause but no one rose from their seat.
