  • Prince Harry reportedly mentioned Meghan Markle's "baby brain" comment toward Kate Middleton in his book
  • Several netizens slammed Markle and questioned her being a feminist for her insensitive comment
  • Some online users defended the Duchess of Sussex, saying "baby brain" is not an insulting remark

Meghan Markle made a comment on Kate Middleton that reportedly didn't sit well with the latter, and the netizens have mixed opinions about it.

The Duke of Sussex shared different encounters between him, Meghan Markle and his family in his book "Spare." In a report about the memoir published in Daily Mail, Prince Harry recounted an incident between the Duchess of Sussex and Princess of Wales, which reportedly caused a huge row.

Markle reportedly referenced Middleton's "baby brain because of her hormones" ahead of their 2018 royal wedding. It reportedly didn't sit well with the future queen consort because "it wasn't the way people spoke to each other within the Royal Family."

The incident happened after Middleton gave birth to her and Prince William's third son, Prince Louis, People and Page Six reported. The incident sparked a debate on Twitter, with some siding with Middleton and others defending Markle.

"Meghan is not a feminist. Her behavior was insensitive and rude toward Kate and toward pregnant women in general with her 'baby brain' accusation to diminish Kate," one commented.

"I cannot believe a woman who claims she is perfect /feminist/woke used the words 'you have baby brain' for her sister-in-law. Harry exposed his wife here. Meghan Markle will not be pleased. #PrinceHarryhasgonemad," another added.

"And also insensitive Meghan toward Catherine and her stupid and rude baby brain comment. When I think she's got a podcast about women and labels. Harry exposed his wife as a fake feminist and a bully. Well done, Harry," a third person wrote.

Others sided with Markle, saying the comment wasn't an insult because they normally used it.

"Right, but this is the first time I'm seeing people call it an insult. I've said it about myself, to my family & my friends. And it was said in jest/joking or actually sometimes with concern. 'It's just baby brain. You'll be ok. Don't worry.' But #MeghanMarkle says it and it's an [insult]," one commented.

"... I'm [sic] seen so many people jumping all over Meghan for the 'baby brain' comment (for which we don't even know the exact context) but not a word about Kate's behavior, which was abysmal," another added.

"I've heard it plenty over the last couple of decades. Baby brain simply means hormones are all over the map for a while," a third user wrote.

Prince Harry also shared another "awkward moment" in his book between his wife and his sister-in-law. According to him, Markle borrowed the Princess of Wales's lip gloss because she forgot hers, which he called an "American thing."

Middleton was reportedly taken aback and reluctantly pulled out the item. Markle reportedly squeezed some onto her finger and applied it to her lips as Middleton grimaced.

"Spare" will hit shelves Tuesday.
