Prince William and Kate Middleton to sue Tatler

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, otherwise known as Prince William and Kate Middleton, have reportedly sent legal letters to Tatler magazine following its publication of a cover story on Kate.

The Mail on Sunday broke the story of the legal correspondence, and Tatler confirmed on Monday it had received the lawyers' letter.

"Kate Middleton couldn't walk a DAY in Meghan Markle's shoes", one wrote on Twitter.

A royal source told an agency on Sunday, "The piece is full of lies". There is no truth to their claim that the Duchess feels overwhelmed with work, nor that the Duke is obsessed with Carole Middleton. "It's preposterous and downright wrong", the source said.

The article had majorly upset the royal couple, who are now planning to sue the publication, for printing a piece replete of a "swathe of inaccuracies and false representations", according to a statement issued by the Kensington Palace.

While the Cambridges are planning to take legal actions against Tatler, Prince Harry, Meghan and their 1-year-old son Archie are isolating in a Beverly Hills mansion owned by media mogul and Madea creator Tyler Perry.

Kate and her husband Prince William have been seen on frequent Zoom calls in recent weeks as they speak to staff on the frontline battling the coronavirus pandemic.

And apparently it is this row that left the Duchess of Cambridge "in tears". She is of course cognisant of that.

More likely Kate was outraged by the judgment, it supposedly feels like a trapped, exhausted after all increase of Royal authority. "She's working as hard as a top CEO, who has to be wheeled out all the time, without the benefits of boundaries and plenty of holidays", they added.

Last week, Kensington Palace took the rare step of issuing a statement denying the claims in the article.

While Tatler did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment, a spokesperson previously told Insider: "Tatler's Editor-in-Chief Richard Dennen stands behind the reporting of Anna Pasternak and her sources".

Last week, a Tatler spokesman had said: "Kensington Palace knew we were running the "Catherine the Great" cover months ago and we asked them to work together on it".
