• Meghan Markle did not say anything nasty about Kate Middleton in her interview with Oprah Winfrey, a report claims
  • Buckingham Palace reportedly had nothing to worry about regarding Prince Harry and Markle's sit-down interview
  • Insiders said they do not plan to talk about their alleged rift with the Cambriges

Meghan Markle did not criticize her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, in her sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey, a report says.

Buckingham Palace allegedly feared that Markle would take jabs at Prince William's wife in her and Prince Harry's tell-all interview with Winfrey this Sunday on CBS, New York Post's Page Six reported. However, unnamed sources told the outlet that the Duchess of Sussex only had "kind words" to say about Middleton.

An anonymous source "with knowledge" about Prince Harry and Markle's chat with Winfrey told the outlet that Buckingham Palace had nothing to worry about regarding what they had to say about Prince William and Middleton. The insider also denied that the sit-down interview would expose the "fab four's" rift.

Royal biographer Omid Scobie previously said the Sussexes would never throw Queen Elizabeth II under the bus despite speculations claiming otherwise. The "Finding Freedom" co-author revealed that the royal couple has maintained a great relationship with the Queen and Prince Philip even after moving to California.

"This idea that people have that they may be throwing the queen under the bus on national television ... is far from the truth," he told Entertainment Tonight. "This is a couple that understands the difference between the machine of the monarchy, the institution, and the family itself. And it's that family with certain individuals they have great relationships with."

Fans have speculated that Prince Harry and Markle may expose the royal family in their tell-all interview as they open up about their decision to step back from royal duties last year. However, Scobie said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have no issues with the members of the royal family themselves but were more concerned about the institution of the monarchy.

"Their issues are really in the institution of the monarchy, rather than with royal family members themselves, but their lives were made extremely difficult," Scobie told Entertainment Tonight.

Prince Harry and Markle tried everything to make things work before they quit as working royals, Scobie told Glamour. He recalled his emotional conversation with Markle last March where the duchess told him, "It didn’t have to be this way."

The magazine noted that the issue was bigger than Prince Harry and Markle. It also didn't start with the Sussexes but with the "misogynistic way the press," particularly the British press, treated the women who joined the firm like Wallis Simpson and Princess Diana.
