The royal tailor behind the alterations to Meghan Markle’s bridesmaids’ dresses has broken his silence on the alleged drama between the Duchess of Sussex and Kate Middleton.

Markle’s husband, Prince Harry, named luxury tailor and designer Ajay Mirpuri in his recently released memoir, ‘Spare’, while discussing an alleged feud over bridesmaid dresses that left Markle ” sob” ahead of the Sussexes’ royal wedding in 2018.

According to Prince Harry, Middleton complained to Markle that his daughter Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress was ill-fitting and wanted all six young bridesmaids’ dresses redone days before the wedding .

Speaking exclusively to the Daily Mail, Mirpuri, 45, said he did not witness any drama between Middleton and Markle. But he confirmed he and his staff had to work around the clock at Kensington Palace and Windsor Castle for four days before the nuptials because none of the six Givenchy-made bridesmaid dresses fitted.

“If something happened in the background, it didn’t happen in front of me,” the royal tailor told the Daily Mail. “But yes, weddings are stressful at the best of times – and especially one at this high level; you have to respect that. They were hitting a snag just like anyone at a wedding, with last minute hiccups.”

Mirpuri added that he understood why they were upset that the dresses didn’t fit, noting that “it’s nerve-wracking” especially so close to the wedding day.

“I feel for all of them because you wouldn’t want kids walking out on a big stage in an ill-fitting dress – and that’s what they were,” Mirpuri said of the short-sleeved white dresses with ruffles. loose skirts.

“The six bridesmaids’ dresses had to be repaired, and we did,” he said, adding he was proud his small business was able to serve the royal family.

Mirpuri said he found it unfortunate that the bridesmaids’ appearance that day was overshadowed by reports of alleged drama between Markle and Middleton.

“If that book hadn’t come out, no one would have known it was us. But if it saved the day, it saved it, and good luck to them,” he told About Prince Harry’s Memoirs. “I won’t say it bothers me, but in this whole big event, this [the row] is what is talked about the most – it should be the fact that they [the bridesmaids] looked fabulous.”

In his memoirs, which fell on Tuesday. Prince Harry wrote that his sister-in-law had texted Markle four days before the wedding, saying: “Charlotte’s dress is too big, too long, too baggy. She cried when she tried it on at the house.”

Markle reportedly ordered Middleton to see the tailor ‘up’ at Kensington Palace since 8am that morning, but the Princess of Wales insisted ‘all dresses must be redone’, according to Prince Harry .

The book claimed the conversation went “back and forth” before Middleton finally agreed to go to the tailor and replied to Markle, “Fine.”

Prince Harry said he found Markle “sobbing on the floor” that day after returning home. He claimed Middleton came the next day with flowers and a card to apologize.

He also alleged that while Middleton privately admitted to making Markle cry, his sister-in-law didn’t set the record straight when tabloids reported otherwise, that it was the Duchess of Sussex who did mourn the Princess of Wales.
