Kate Middleton met Princess Diana in a flashback scene in The Crown season 6, a reach from the events in reality.

Recently, all ten episodes of the royal drama premiered on Netflix, wrapping up the critically acclaimed series by introducing Kate Middleton, played by Meg Bellamy.

As the plot of the latest season unraveled the college days of young Prince William, a character lended to Ed McVey, a royal love story began.

However, it seemed that the series makers tweaked the storyline of the royal family according to their taste, owing to a few scenes from the sixth and final season that left fans to ponder over whether they took place in real life or not.

In Alma Mater, episode 7, in a flashback to December 1996, Diana was selling The Big Issue magazine for charity with Prince William.

The scene revealed that a young Kate, who was shopping with her mother Carole Middleton (Eve Best), stopped by to buy an issue from Diana.

As Kate offers her money Diana instructs her son to thank her after inquiring her name.

The scene came to an end with Kate, smitten by William, cutting several photos of him from the magazine to hang in her room.

However, it has been confirmed several times that unfortunately, Princess Kate never had a chance to meet her mother-in-law.

Shortly after the extravagant royal wedding, the future king addressed his mother’s absence on his big day saying, "It’s the one time since she’s died, where I’ve … thought to myself it would be fantastic if she was here."

"I think, hopefully, she’d be very proud. I’m just very sad that she’s never going to get a chance to meet Kate," he added.

Years later, Princess Kate also shed light on the same topic while talking about the ring that she shared with Diana, saying, "Same ring."

She added: "And exactly the same — the same size."

The mother of two said in a since-deleted video shared on Instagram, ”I never, sadly, got to meet her."
