Kate Middleton was "upset" by suggestions she rejects in a recent Tatler article "Against Hard Work and Duty," and has "worked harder than ever," a source revealed.
The 37-year-old Duke and 38-year-old Duchess of Cambridge can take legal action against Tatler's Society Bible after posting a series of lies about Kate.
Tatler struck back yesterday and published a statement saying, "We can confirm that we have received correspondence from lawyers who work for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and believe that it has no value."
And now Vanity Fair sources Katie Nicholl has announced that it was the suggestion that Kate "refuse her duty and hard work", which angered and revealed the king: "She takes her role very seriously and has worked harder than ever. The idea that she feels trapped and exhausted is simply not the case. "
Kate Middleton, 38, was "upset" in a recent Tatler article about suggestions she rejects against hard work and duty, sources Vanity Fair's Katie Nicholl said
Sources told the royal editor that the Duchess was "more than happy" to step on the plate during the coronavirus pandemic.
They added that she had always wanted 2020 to be a crucial year for her royal duty.
Meanwhile, the royal reporter at the palace said the Duchess had a reputation for being "a grafter".
Another source added that both Kate and William enjoyed the closure because it allowed them to spend more time with Prince George [six], Princess Charlotte [five] and Prince Louis [two] at their home in Notes Hall.
According to sources, the Duchess has "worked harder than ever" and "took her role very seriously" in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic
The unnamed source revealed that they also enjoyed making "their contribution" to help during the crisis.
Meanwhile, royal historian Sarah Gristwood said Kate had taken on a more visible role at a crucial time.
She revealed, "Harry and Meghan who left the company left a void, and I think the royal family was in danger without looking touchless and sloppy."
To the annoyance of Kensington Palace, Ms. Pasternak claims that the Cambridges feel very tired because they were forced to do more royal duties after the Megxit
She explained how "Kate's moment to shine" was now because there was a "vacuum" after the Megxit when it came to "Star Appeal".
Earlier this week, the Tatler Society Bible rejected a legal complaint from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in an ongoing series over a controversial article, saying it was "unfounded."
In a highly unusual step, the couple sent legal letters to the magazine demanding that the profile of the Duchess with the headline "Catherine the Great" be removed from the Internet.
The palace is particularly "angry" with claims that Kate feels "exhausted and trapped" by the increased workload after Harry and Meghan have decided to resign.
A royal source told The Mail on Sunday: “This is an extremely cruel and wounding barb. It's disgusting. It's sexist and shameful for women at worst.
& # 39; The piece is full of lies. Your claim that the Duchess feels overwhelmed by work and that the Duke is obsessed with Carole Middleton is not true. It is absurd and downright wrong.
“The whole thing is class snobbery in its worst form. The stuff about [Kate's sister] Pippa is terrible. Tatler may think it's immune to promotions as read by the royals and on every coffee table in every smart home, but it makes no difference.
Sources told the expert that both Prince William and Kate enjoyed aspects of the ban, including the opportunity to spend more time as a family with Prince George [six], Princess Charlotte [five], and Prince Louis [two]
Royal historian Sarah Gristwood said that the decision by Prince Harry  and Meghan Markle  to withdraw from life in The Firm "left a void".
& # 39; It's ironic that the Royals' favorite magazine is destroyed by them. The Duchess is an inherently shy woman who does her best. & # 39;
To the annoyance of Kensington Palace, Ms. Pasternak claimed that the Cambridges felt very tired from being forced to do more royal duties after the Megxit.
The article quotes a source as saying, "Kate is angry at the increased workload … she feels exhausted and trapped. She works as hard as a top CEO who has to be pulled out of the traffic all the time without the benefits of boundaries and lots of vacation. & # 39;
However, the numbers in Court Circular, the official report on royal engagements, suggest otherwise.
The Duke and Duchess were at the forefront of the royal family's response to the coronavirus pandemic, and appeared regularly in video calls and messages
The couple carried out a similar number of jobs from January to March as in the same period last year. Kate has actually done less – 29 this year versus 35 in 2019.
In a statement released after the article was published, Kensington Palace said: "This story contains a wealth of inaccuracies and misrepresentations that were not previously published in Kensington Palace."
Tatler struck back and then made his own statement: “Tatler's editor-in-chief Richard Dennen is behind the reporting by Anna Pasternak and her sources.
& # 39; Kensington Palace knew we covered the cover & # 39; Catherine ran the Great & # 39; and we asked her to work on it together. The fact that they deny ever knowing is categorically wrong. & # 39;
Who is Anna Pasternak?
Author Anna Pasternak's article refers to William's mother Princess Diana's eating disorders and says: "Kate has become dangerously thin, just like – as I mentioned – Prince Diana."
It was alleged yesterday that Anna Pasternak's married mother is friends with former Tatler journalist Vanessa Mulroney, sister-in-law of Meghan's best friend Jessica Mulroney.
A source told the sun: & # 39; Pasternak's article caused immense unnecessary pain to Kate, and his central claim that she felt trapped and unhappy was absolutely wrong.
Pasternak sticks to her story and says that her sources are good. It is very well networked in the USA. She is friends with Vanessa Mulroney, who previously worked at Tatler and now lives in Canada.
“And Vanessa's sister-in-law Jessica is Meghan's best friend. It is fascinating. & # 39;
Anna Pasternak made a name for herself in 1994 with the book Princess In Love – about Princess Diana's affair with cavalry officer James Hewitt.
The writer comes from an illustrious family. Her great-grandfather Leonid Pasternak was an impressionist painter, her great-uncle Boris, a Nobel Prize-winning writer, her grandmother Josephine, a philosopher, and her father Charles an Oxford scientist.
As an "avowed elitist snob", the author has published her new book "The American Duchess: The Real Wallis Simpson", which draws parallels to the Duchess of Sussex.
The 53-year-old Pasternak was educated at Christ Church College in Oxford and after her divorce from old Etonian William Coles published a diary about her divorce.
With her second husband, 63-year-old therapist Andrew Wallas, she wrote a relationship book Call Off The Search, in which she told of her desperate longing for a man who could share her life.
The couple lives in Oxfordshire with their 16-year-old daughter Daisy.
