Prince William ‘felt Meghan was too opinionated’ and she ‘broke up’ his bond with Harry

The Prince of Wales reportedly thought Meghan Markle was an "outsider" and was too "opinionated" for life within the Royal Family, according to an explosive new book.

Omid Scobie's royal biography was released on 28 November and is titled Endgame: Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy's Fight for Survival.

Omid suggests in his book that the arrival of Meghan Markle was a shock to the system, with Prince William expressing worries that Prince Harry was moving too quickly with someone whose life was very different from his own.

He wrote: "Meghan Markle's arrival was a jolt to the system, but William soon expressed concern that Harry was moving too fast with someone who had lived a life so far removed from that of his brother."

The book also reveals that Meghan seemed like an "outsider" to William due to their different backgrounds and nationalities.

Her American way of life clashed with what he was used to, and he was taken aback by Harry's refusal to consider the potential risks their unconventional relationship could pose to the Royal Family.

"At the expense of the family image," Omid explained, "It was felt that Harry was rushing into something that had serious blowback potential."

Harry reportedly felt that William didn't do enough to make Meghan feel welcome, and their relationship suffered as a result. Rumours even started to circulate that William wasn't a fan of Meghan, with him allegedly telling close ones that he found her "opinionated."

William also reportedly had issues with how Meghan interacted with his staff and the "drama" surrounding her family. A source revealed to Scobie: "William shifted away from acting like a brother and became more like someone only focused [on the Crown]."

The tension between Harry and William eventually became so well-known they had to address it publicly. They released a joint statement dismissing the rumours as "inflammatory language" and discouraging further speculation. However, a source told Scobie that Harry was not briefed on the statement and it was released without his knowledge.

Elsewhere in the book, the author claims that the Princess Royal was a vocal supporter in the decision to evict the couple from their Frogmore Cottage home on the Windsor Estate.

Omid explains how Prince Harry and Meghan received a letter from Sir Michael John Stevens, the Keeper of the Privy Purse, asking them to return the cottage as they were no longer working royals and lived abroad.

The request was met with a strong reaction from Prince Harry, who reportedly asked his father: "You don't want to see your grandchildren any more?".

Princess Anne's alleged contribution to the move has not come as a surprise given her decades of loyal service, her obvious respect for her role and the trusted position she finds herself in as Gold-Stick-in-Waiting to her elder brother.
