As for the row between Markle and Middleton previous year, it was reportedly not an isolated example of Markle's "high-handedness" according to sources.
Carole talked about running a fledgling start-up in the 80s with three young kids at home back when working mums were more rare, and she also touched on her grandkids, of which she has four: five-year-old George, three-year-old Charlotte, seven-month-old Louis and Pippa's two-month-old son Arthur.
Meghan put a lot of demands on her and it ended up with her in tears."She is hugely talented and played a pivotal role in the success of the royal wedding".
The source told The Mirror: 'Her job was highly pressurised and in the end it became too much.
She also revealed she is putting off a holiday-packed retirement because she would miss her grandchildren.
"She wants to be on hand to help Meghan and Harry with the baby".
"Meghan had her heart set on this tiara with emeralds and Prince Harry hit the roof when they were told it was impossible for her to wear it", the source said. Royal correspondent Richard Palmer has written, "It is clear that Meghan is regarded as hard and demanding by some in the family and on the staff".
Kensington Palace is said to have launched the hunt for the source of the leaks, according to the Mail on Sunday.
The source explained: "Her and Kate fell out when she b******ed Kate's staff". However, this wouldn't mark a break from royal tradition; rather, it would be a return to it.
Specifically, the Palace is responding to a story that surfaced from The Sun, which alleges that Kate "slapped down" Meghan for berating members of her team at Kensington Palace right before Meghan and Harry's wedding in May.
The former Suits actress is reportedly considering giving birth at home. After her split with Andrew in the early 90s, she found herself under harsh criticism from the royal family.
