Meghan Markle had a “dangerous level of self-belief” that Buckingham Palace “didn’t know what to do with”, an author has claimed.
Robert Lacey said Meghan came across as “difficult” and her introduction to the Royal Family changed its dynamic, reports the Mirror Online.
He writes: “What you’ve got to realise is that the whole strategy of the monarchy was based on them sticking together.
“Meghan changed all that. She is difficult. She has an incredible and dangerous level of self-belief.”
He also said the Palace treat ‘second-borns badly’, claiming: “They just don’t know what to do with the spare and they certainly don’t know what to do with the spare’s wife.”
Robert said the Duke of Sussex, who is sixth in line to the throne, has chosen to find a “new destiny” with Meghan, in his new book Battle of Brothers. He says Harry realised “there was something rotten at the heart of royalness that is not for him.”
Prince Harry has spoken out recently on issues of race and diversity in the UK in a number of interviews, urging voters in the US election to “reject hate speech”.
Following the interviews, many have claimed they hint towards a permanent base for Harry and Meghan in the US with no return to the UK.
Harry was asked about the couple’s ability to maintain relationships with causes close to their hearts in the UK while speaking alongside Meghan Markle during an interview with the Evening Standard for Black History Month.
Prince Harry said “it doesn’t matter where in the world we have been”, as he explained how the Duke and Duchess have remained in touch with charities and organisations “as much as humanly possible”.
He appeared to hint at a possible US citizenship ambition during his presidential election plea a few days ago.
The Duke of Sussex spoke out about the upcoming US election for the first time since stepping down as a senior royal and moving overseas to America with wife, Meghan Markle and their son, Archie.
Prince Harry spoke of the need for the good to outweigh the bad, as well as the dangers of ‘online negativity’.
He added: “This election, I’m not going to be able to vote in the US” – before explaining how he has also never voted in the UK due to royal protocol.
It appeared he was leaving open the possibility of voting in the future should he want to apply for official US citizenship.
As part of his speech, Harry urged people to “reject hate speech misinformation and online negativity.”
He continued: “When the bad outweighs the good, for many, whether we realize it or not, it erodes our ability to have compassion and our ability to put ourself in someone else’s shoes.
“Because when one person buys into negativity online the effects are felt exponentially. It’s time to not only, but to act.”
