Meghan Markle gave Kate Middleton a gold bracelet as a "peace offering" after their spat at her wedding to Prince Harry, a royal expert has claimed.
Appearing on ITV's This Morning, author Andrew Morton spoke to hosts Phillip Schofield, 59, and Holly Willoughby about his book Meghan: A Hollywood Princess on Wednesday 6 October.
During their chat, 40 year old Holly recalled how there were reports of a rift between the two Duchesses over a bridesmaids' dress fitting for Princess Charlotte.
However, during Meghan, also 40, and 37 year old Prince Harry's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey in March this year, Meghan denied these claims and said "the reverse happened".
Speaking on This Morning today, Holly explained: "We knew that there was sort of an alleged row about the bridesmaids' dresses between Meghan and Kate.
"And we saw the Oprah interview where Megan said it was actually Kate that made her cry and not the other way around, which it had previously been reported.
"But there is something in your book that talks about this bracelet."
Andrew replied: "Yes, after the dust had settled on the wedding. Megan gave a gold bracelet out to all the people who had helped her, one of whom was Kate. So that was kind of a peace offering.
"And I think both women are mature and sensible enough to realise that to have duelling Duchesses headlines was in no benefit to either of them.
"They're both professional and kissed and made up."

In his book, the author also explained: "The spat concerning the bridesmaids’ outfits now behind them, Meghan had since given Kate and her six closest friends gold bracelets designed by Californian jeweller Lisette Polny as a thank-you for their help and support.
"It was an elegant peace offering, both women professional enough to know that there was no gain in showing dissent or disdain."
However, Andrew also claimed the pair have not had a chance to truly develop a friendship "away from public events".
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
"It was a practical matter as much as anything. Kate spent weekends and holidays at Anmer Hall, the Cambridges’ country home in Norfolk, while Meghan and Harry were approximately three hours’ drive away, living in a large, remote, rented property on the Great Tew estate in Oxfordshire," he wrote.
Andrew, who also previously said Princess Diana is the "third wheel" in Meghan and Harry's marriage, added: "Harry’s dream of two united happy families seemed a long way off."
