Prince Harry's new memoir, Spare, sheds some light on the occasionally tense dynamic between Duchess Meghan and Princess Kate.

Before Harry, Meghan, Kate, and Prince William took the stage at the 2018 Royal Foundation Forum, the sister-in-laws reportedly had an awkward encounter, according to an excerpt obtained by Page Six.

Meghan forgot her lip gloss and had asked to borrow Kate's—an "American thing," Harry wrote. "Kate, taken aback, went into her handbag and reluctantly pulled out a small tube," the Duke of Sussex continued, per Page Six. "Meg squeezed some onto her finger and applied it to her lips. Kate grimaced."

Harry said that the foursome "should’ve been able to laugh about" the incident, but the press "sensed" it was "something bigger." He also wrote that Kate must have been "on edge," since Meghan's entry into the royal family meant that she was now "going to be compared to, and forced to compete with, Meg."

Prior to meeting Meghan, Harry wrote that he already looked forward to creating a "Fab Four" team with his brother and Kate and his future partner.

"I also said I couldn’t wait for them to meet her, that I looked forward to the four of us spending lots of time together," the duke wrote, per Page Six, adding that it was his "dream" to find an "equal partner" to join his and the Waleses's endeavors.

Despite his optimism, Harry claims that William put the brakes on his dream, telling him to "slow down." The Prince of Wales reportedly said, "She’s an American actress after all, Harold. Anything might happen.”
