A royal biographer has claimed that Meghan Markle tied the knot with Prince Harry to achieve global stardom and that her show 'Suits' wasn't that "popular."

Tom Bower -- author of a bombshell biography of the royal couple titled 'Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors' -- said the Duchess of Sussex "thought the royal family would be like Hollywood." In a conversation with Ben Shephard and Charlotte Hawkins on Good Morning Britain, Bower said that Meghan didn't like being a part of The Firm once she realized it was "lots of work and little reward."

"It's wrong to say she was a famous actress, she wasn't, she was a third-rate actress," the author declared. "Suits was only watched by a million people."


GMB host Ben appeared to disagree. "She was a very famous actress. She had a high profile in Hollywood and Suits is a series that was streamed all over the world, so people knew who she was," he told Bower. However, the author agreed to disagree, pointing to Meghan's cover story with Vanity Fair while she was dating Harry. "Well we won't argue but I disagree with you," he said. "The point is, until she met Harry, even Graydon Carter, the editor of Vanity Fair who commissioned the article, never heard of her and never heard of Suits. He was just told that anyone who marries Harry is going to be famous and she indeed was." Bower added, "She said to her father 'I want to be famous, I want to walk down the red carpet' and, marrying Harry, she achieved exactly that ambition."

The author said he believed the royal family tried their best to accommodate the actress and make her feel at home. "People were very excited by the fact that there was a mixed race girl coming," he said, adding, "It was going to be a great development for the royal family." However, it all "went wrong" and the reason behind it is "explained fully" in his new book, he said. "Both sides are to blame but I believe the blame lies mostly with Meghan, who I don't think understood the monarchy," Bower said.


The biographer admitted that quite a few of his sources did not personally like Meghan, especially since she had warned those close to her not to speak to him. "She made it pretty clear to all her friends and people who work for her not to talk to me, so it was quite an uphill struggle but I got enough people to speak to me, more than enough, I got about 80 people," he said. Considering, Ben asked how the book would be an unbiased account if those interviewed already didn't like the Duchess. "Because I sifted through," Bower responded. "I never put in stuff that isn't true and can't be checked. You know I have some admiration for Meghan. She succeeded quite well in her life with her ambitions and I was able to balance it all," he added.

Bower said the Sussexes hadn't issued any lawsuits against him as yet, but the author has a history of going to court over his controversial biographies. He landed in hot water after penning two unauthorized biographies of Robert Maxwell, father of convicted British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, but the author won all the cases thrown at him. He has now gone after the royal couple, and his book is slated for release on Thursday, July 21.
