Recalling the incident, Prince Harry wrote that Kate Middleton asked Meghan Markle for an apology for hurting her feelings. When his wife said she was unaware of what Kate was saying, the latter brought up a phone conversation where Meghan Markle commented on Kate’s hormones. In the phone call, the pair discussed the timings of wedding rehearsals.
“Meg said: ‘Oh yes! I remember: You couldn’t remember something, and I said it’s not a big deal, it’s baby brain. Because you’d just had a baby. It’s hormones,’” Prince Harry recalls.

“Kate’s eyes widened: ‘Yes. You talked about my hormones. We’re not close enough for you to talk about my hormones!’ Meg’s eyes got wide too. She looked genuinely confused. ‘I’m sorry I talked about your hormones. That’s just how I talk with my girlfriends'," he further wrote. Prince Harry then claimed that Prince William stepped in and “pointed at Meg”.
“‘It’s rude, Meghan. It’s not what’s done here in Britain,’” Prince William reportedly said.
To which Meghan Markle replied, “Kindly take your finger out of my face.”
“Was this really happening? Had it actually come to this? Shouting at each other about place cards and hormones? Meg said she’d never intentionally do anything to hurt Kate, and if she ever did, she asked Kate to please just let her know so it wouldn’t happen again," Prince Harry then wrote.
