Royal family fears Meghan may want $90M payout not to publish tell-all book painting them in bad light: Source
'Meghan was fed up with the lies at the palace and how she was being treated — especially by Kate'
While it appears that Megxit is complete with Prince Harry's and Meghan Markle's move to Canada, there may just be more drama yet, with it being claimed that the latter will be seeking out a massive payout to keep quiet about the royal family.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had a very public split from the royal family and announced earlier this month that they would be making a "transition" this year and carving a "progressive new role" within the monarchy.
While it appeared that the whole ordeal had ended following their agreement to drop their HRH titles and pay back the millions in taxpayer money that was used to renovate Frogmore Cottage, there seems to be a new twist in the tale.
A new report is claiming that the royal family now fears that Meghan will demand money from them to stop her from publishing a tell-all book that paints them in a very unflattering light.
"Apparently, Meghan told friends that life behind the palace walls is toxic and even accused the royals of sexism and racism," a source explained. "The royals fear that she’ll want $90million from the coffers to finance their new life in return for keeping her mouth shut!"
If such a book does go ahead into publishing, it may just include details about the former actress' feud with sister-in-law and Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, who, it has been claimed, "made Meghan's life hell."
"Meghan was fed up with the lies at the palace and how she was being treated — especially by Kate," a source had said. "She made Meghan’s life hell by treating her like an outcast and silently just looking on her as the press criticized her sister-in-law at every turn." "Kate never welcomed her into the family. It’s obvious that they will never be friends or even have a cordial relationship. They tolerated each other until they couldn’t anymore."
Prince Charles is amongst those who are said to be very upset about having to fork out on a potential payout for the book, especially since he has "secretly funneled millions of his own money to bankroll Harry and Meghan’s luxury lifestyle."
To ease their transition away from royal life, Charles reportedly had offered "private financial support" for a year until their so-called 'abdication deal' is reviewed once again next Spring. To do so, he would be using revenue generated not by the Duchy of Cornwall, which has traditionally funded the family, but via private investment income.
While the publication of a book may be a stretch, both Harry and Meghan have said they do not want to involve the royal family in their future endeavors, they may just have plans for their Sussex name.
"Meghan wants to turn the Sussex brand into a global empire with herself as queen bee and follow in the lucrative footsteps of famous friends like Elton John and Barack Obama," the source said.
