Kate Middleton / Richard Dennen
The scandal surrounding an article about 38-year-old Kate Middleton, published in a new issue of the British Tatler in June-July with the headline "Katerina the Great", continues to gain momentum. This is a report by the journalist Anna Pasternak, which contains a large amount of criticism regarding the duchess. The material says that Kate feels "tired and trapped" because of the responsibilities that have fallen on her after "Meggit", and many other things. Representatives of the British monarchs have already stated that the article contains a number of inaccuracies and distortions, and Kate Middleton herself decided to file a lawsuit for publication.

The other day, insiders said that Kate Middleton had a grudge against Tatler chief editor Richard Dennen for allowing this material to be published. According to a source close to the royal family, the duchess was shocked by the betrayal of Dennen, whom she considered a close friend of their family - with him, Kate and William went on vacation twice with him. Rumor has it that Middleton feels "offended and upset," because she did not expect such meanness from Richard.
At the same time, Richard Dennen himself had previously argued that before publishing this material was personally discussed with the Duchess and her husband:
They deny that they knew about it, which is clearly not true.
Recall that in the article that caused the scandal, it is not only about the stressful state of Kate Middleton because of her royal duties that suddenly fell on her, but also about her eating disorder, which makes her look “frighteningly exhausted”, what Princess Diana once looked like. The material also criticizes Middleton's family and children and reveals details of her poor relationship with Meghan Markle. In particular, the report describes a quarrel that allegedly occurred between the two duchesses on the eve of the wedding of Harry and Megan because of the choice of attire for Princess Charlotte for the celebration.
Kate MiddletonThis is such a cruel and injuring barb. It's disgusting. This is sexism and misogyny at its worst. This article is full of lies, it does not contain a word of truth. What is the irony that the royal family’s favorite magazine will soon be defeated by them. Kate, who is very modest by nature, does everything in her power,
- already commented on a source from royal circles published article.
Along with all this, it is alleged that Anna Pasternak had fairly reliable sources that helped her in working on the material. Rumor has it that the journalist worked closely with former Tatler editor Vanessa Mulroney, who, in turn, is the daughter-in-law of Meghan Markle's best friend, Jessica Mulroney. Therefore, it is possible that the information that Middleton calls false was sent to Pasternak almost directly from the Duchess of Sussex.
