Reports said the Princess of Wales is “really moved” after being “baffled” by Prince Harry’s claims in his disturbing memoir, Spear.
Kate, who turned 41 this week, is reported to have “dismissed” the Duke of Sussex’s accusations against her in the book, including that she and Prince William “portray” Meghan Markle as a “biracial American actress.”
Other accusations against the Princess of Wales included detailed allegations of her falling out with the Duchess of Sussex, including what Prince Harry said was a text exchange between the couple before Harry and Meghan’s wedding in a now-infamous spat over bridesmaid dresses.
But The Mirror reports that the Princess of Wales remains “fully immersed” in her royal duties and is largely unaffected by Harry’s claims in the book.
The Princess of Wales (pictured visiting the Royal Liverpool University Hospital this week) is said to have ‘already moved on’ after claims in Prince Harry’s diary that ‘baffled’ her, according to reports
A source told the newspaper Kate is busy continuing her work improving children’s early years education and experiences in the UK.
During her time as a senior royal, the mother-of-three has championed development in the early years as one of her top priorities.

In 2020, she launched the Royal Early Childhood Foundation Centre.
Writing in The Telegraph last November, she said: ‘I am determined to continue to shine a light on this issue and do all I can to secure greater focus on those crucial first few years for the youngest members of our society – they are. After all, our future.
With the royal family left reeling from Prince Harry’s claims in his book, the Princess of Wales is said to be focusing on a new chapter of her projects – including the launch of a new program that will focus on children aged three to five.
The source said: ‘Of course there were other distractions but the princess was thinking about much more important things. It is an important and exciting time.
This week, the Prince and Princess of Wales appeared to ignore accusations leveled at them in Harry’s memoirs as they resumed their royal engagements on their first visit in 2023.
The royal couple arrived at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital in Merseyside, which opened its doors to patients in October last year, to meet staff and patients.
Standing still and wearing matching navy blue and green outfits, the couple remained professional as they shook hands with well-wishers.
Kate even took selfies, before joking, William would jokingly tell her.
Prince Harry, 38, claimed in his book that the Prince and Princess of Wales did not welcome his wife, Meghan Markle, into the royal family.
He also claimed that before he met Meghan and was living at Frogmore Cottage, Kate and William would not invite him to dinner despite living a stone’s throw away on the Kensington Palace Estate.
The Duke of Sussex also revealed what he claimed were tense text messages between Kate and Meghan in the days leading up to Harry and Meghan’s 2018 wedding, regarding Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress.
Harry wrote that Kate texted Meghan to say: ‘Charlotte’s dress is too big, too long and too loose. She cried when I tried it on at home.
He added that Meghan reportedly asked her to visit her dressmaker to have the dress remade, before Kate allegedly responded by demanding that “all dresses need to be remade.”
The duke claims the exchange left Meghan “crying on the floor”.
But according to the Duke of Sussex, the feud between the sisters-in-law began long before the wedding as he detailed a lip-related incident prior to the debut of the so-called ‘Fab Four’ at the Royal Foundation Forum Summit in 2018.
According to the Duke of Sussex, Meghan asked Kate if she could borrow some lip gloss before the four of them took to the stage, which Kate obliged.
However, Harry claimed that while Meghan applied the gloss on her finger, Kate had a “disgusting” look on her face.
