Harry branded William a ‘snob’ after being warned about Meghan Markle – new book claims


PRINCE HARRY fell out with Prince William and branded his older brother a “snob” after he was warned to take it slow in his relationship with Meghan Markle, a new bombshell royal book has claimed.

Prince William feared Harry had been “blindsided by lust” when he first met Meghan Markle in 2016, a new book about Meghan and Harry called Finding Freedom has claimed. In the publication serialised by the Times and the Sunday Times, it is also claimed members within the royal circle had raised concerns over his new girlfriend.

The book quotes one senior royal branding Meghan as “Harry’s showgirl”, while an aide claimed she “comes with a lot of baggage”.

Co-authors, Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie, say Harry was particularly offended by William’s advice to “take as much time as you need to get to know this girl”.

But Harry allegedly took offence to the phrase “this girl”, and interpreted it as “snobbish and condescending”.

The book quotes a friend of Harry as saying: “Harry could see through William’s words. He was being a snob.”

The authors, who had access to Harry and Meghan’s close pals, claim Harry was angered at being treated as “immature”.

They also pointed to his decade-long stint in the military where he had learnt not to make “snap judgments about people”.

The book adds: “Harry heard the tone of snobbishness that was anathema to his approach to the world.

“During his ten-year career in the military, outside the royal bubble, he had learnt not to make snap judgments about people based on their accent, education, ethnicity, class or profession.

“Harry was tired of the dynamic that had become established between him and his older brother.

“There had come a point when Harry no longer felt as though he needed looking after.

“There was a thin line between caring and condescending.

“William may have felt he was acting out of concern, but Harry was offended his brother treated him as if he were immature.”

The book also claims, Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge did little to bridge the divide and never really got to know Meghan.

It adds by the time Meghan and Harry left their senior royal roles the two households were barely speaking.

The quartet once dubbed the “Fab Four” were last seen together at the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey in March and it is claimed they barely spoke and Kate blanked Meghan.

The co-authors state: “Although Meghan tried to make eye contact with Kate, the duchess barely acknowledged her.”

A spokesman for Harry and Meghan said the couple did not contribute to the book.

He said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to Finding Freedom.

“This book is based on the authors’ own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting.”
