The Princess of Wales has ‘already moved on’ after being left ‘baffled’ by Prince Harry’s claims in his bombshell memoir, Spare, according to reports.
Kate, who turned 41 this week, has reportedly ‘dismissed’ the Duke of Sussex’s accusations against her in the book, including that she and Prince William ‘stereotyped’ Meghan Markle as a ‘biracial American actress’.
Other accusations leveled at the Princess of Wales included detailed claims about her rift with the Duchess of Sussex, including what Prince Harry said was a text exchange between the couple days before Harry and Meghan’s wedding in a now-infamous row about bridesmaid dresses.
But the Mirror reports the Princess of Wales remains ‘totally immersed’ in her royal duties and has been largely unfazed 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’ following claims in Prince Harry’s memoir which ‘baffled’ her, according to reports
A source told the newspaper Kate is busy continuing her work into improving early years education and experiences for children in the UK.
During her time as a senior royal, the mother-of-three has championed early years development as one of her most important priorities.

In 2020, she launched the The Royal Foundation Center for Early Childhood.
Writing in the Telegraph last November, she said: ‘I am determined to continue to shine a light on this issue and to do everything I can to secure much greater focus on those first crucial few years for the youngest members of our society – they are ‘after all, our future.’
As the Royal Family is left reeling from Prince Harry’s claims in his book, the Princess of Wales is said to be focused on a new chapter of her projects – including the launch of a new program which will focus on children between the ages of three and five.
The source said: ‘Of course there have been other distractions but the Princess has had far more important things on her mind. It’s an important and exciting time.’
This week, the Prince and Princess of Wales seemed to brush off accusations leveled at them in Harry’s memoir as they resumed royal engagements in their first visit of 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 with staff and patients.
Standing firm and dressed in co-ordinated navy blue and green outfits, the couple remained professional as they shook hands with well-wishers.
Kate even posed for a couple of selfies, before joking she would be ‘told off’ by William.
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 in Frogmore Cottage, Kate and William did not invite him over for dinner despite only 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 had texted Meghan to say: ‘Charlotte’s dress is too big, too long, too baggy. She cried when she tried it on a home.’
He added Meghan reportedly her to visit her tailor to have the dress refitted, before told Kate allegedly responded to demand ‘all the dresses need to be remade’.
The Duke claims the exchange left Meghan ‘sobbing on the floor’.
But according to the Duke of Sussex, the rift between the sisters-in-law began long before the wedding as he detailed an incident involving lip gloss before the first appearance 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 took to the stage, to which Kate obliged.
However, Harry claimed that, while Meghan applied the gloss with her finger, Kate had a ‘disgusted’ look on her face.
