Harry and Meghan were jealous of William and Kate, felt 'cut adrift' as they had to take backseat to other royals
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were very frustrated that William and Kate would receive all the best official roles and would feel 'cut adrift', 'Finding Freedom' biography has claimed. It is also believed that Harry and Meghan were also jealous of William and Kate for this reason. The Times and Sunday Times obtained extracts from the book, which will be talking about Sussex's stepping down from The Firm.
It has been revealed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were upset that they had to a 'backseat' to other family members like Prince William and Prince Charles who were often given priority, the Daily Mail reveals. The biography also states that Harry and Meghan believe that they were forced out of the Royal Family given the senior members failed to protect them. While talking to a friend, Meghan had claimed that she had given up her 'entire life for this family' and had no choice but to quit it. The claims made in the book have been based on 'participation of those closest to the couple' which includes members of Harry and Meghan's inner circle. The book 'Finding Freedom' will be published next month.
The two writers, Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, say the infighting and suspicion over the couple's royal role got very very bad so much so that Harry believed that he had been blocked from seeing his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth ll. Harry believed that the problems had been due to senior courtiers in other royal households who were determined to 'reign in' the couple's popularity as they were scared Harry and Meghan would outshine the others.
A friend close to the pair described the palace 'old guard' as 'the vipers'. The book speaks about Harry and Meghan's decision to keep the full family in the dark over their plans to quit royal duties and that the couple moving abroad had created a 'lot of ill will in the household and especially in the family'. The book also says palace officials 'simply didn't like Meghan and would stop at nothing to make her life difficult'.
The biography also looks at Harry and Meghan's interaction with William and Kate at the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey. The authors of the book shared, "Although Meghan tried to make eye contact with Kate, the duchess barely acknowledged her." Scobie told The Times: "To purposefully snub your sister-in-law... I don't think it left a great taste in the couple's mouths."
A spokesman for Harry and Meghan revealed that the couple had not contributed to the book but he did not deny the content of the extracts. The spokesman said, "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to Finding Freedom."
Harry and Meghan are currently living in Tyler Perry's $18 million mansion in Los Angeles. Perry's mansion boasts of eight bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and is located on 22 acres on top of a hill in the exclusive Beverly Ridge Estates guard-gated community. The Beverly Ridge Estates are close to the Van Nuys private airport and also to some of the best private schools on the Westside of LA. Many celebrities have owned homes in the community, such as ex-spouses David and Carlton Gebbia who were seen on the 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.'
