Meghan and Harry are 'professional victims', nothing was ever good enough for 'negative' couple, insider claims
Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle are "professional victims" who always "saw the negative in everything," a palace insider has claimed, according to reports. Hours after details of a bombshell biography on the Sussexes claimed that the couple complained of being victims to a "merciless machine" of aides steeped in tradition, the insider, an ex-staff member, said, "nothing was ever their fault."
"It was a very challenging working environment," the insider told the Daily Mail on Sunday, July 26. "It was high pressure and extremely stressful…Nothing was ever good enough, they always saw the negative in everything. Nothing is ever their fault, always someone else's. They are professional victims."
The insider's comments come after the new book titled 'Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of A Modern Royal Family' claimed that the Duchess of Sussex complained that she "gave up her entire life" for the Royal Family, however, she felt snubbed. The biography also claimed that Harry and Meghan grew frustrated when they were prohibited from establishing their own separate team in Windsor. The couple was also claimed to have been furious at taking a "back seat" to other senior royals like Charles and William. The couple reportedly felt that they had taken the monarchy to "new heights around the world" and were held back so they did not "eclipse" the rest of the royal family, the book has stated.
In the biography, one of the couple's friends described the old guard as "the vipers," while a palace staffer referred to the royal pair as "the squeaky third wheel" of the family." The book's authors, Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie, state: "For months the couple tried to air their frustrations but the conversation didn’t lead anywhere." The book follows claimed that Meghan was branded "Duchess Difficult" after she reportedly sent emails to staff at 5 AM.
The book also claims that Harry was "pi**ed off" after elder brother William warned him not to be "blindsided by lust" over his then-new girlfriend Meghan. The former actress was reportedly called "Harry's showgirl" by a senior royal, while another aide warned that Meghan "comes with a lot of baggage."
The authors, who reportedly had access to the couple's close friends, quoted a friend of Harry as saying: "Harry could see through William’s words. He was being a snob.”
The new book's claims come just days after British writer, Lady Colin Campbell, in a recent interview, opined that Prince Harry "is a much less intelligent character" than wife Meghan Markle and "goes along with whatever she says" because he is "desperate to please" her. The 70-year-old Jamaican-born British writer made the claims in a conversation with new! magazine. Campbell, known for her 1992 best-selling biography 'Diana in Private: The Princess Nobody Knows,' is currently promoting her new book 'Meghan and Harry: The Real Story.'
he author stated that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who are currently living in Los Angeles with their son Archie, "have a very strong relationship," however, Meghan is a "control freak" and in complete control of their relationship because Harry is "besotted with her." The 70-year-old from her home at Castle Goring, Worthing in Sussex, said: "In my opinion, Harry is a much less intelligent character than Meghan is."
"And I think he's so desperate to please her and go along with whatever she says, no matter how ill-conceived it is. He is that besotted with her," she added. Campbell previously married Lord Colin Campbell for a year in 1974 before retaining the title.
