Revenge author Tom Bower has claimed that Meghan Markle “convinced” her husband Prince Harry that his brother the Duke of Cambridge’s staff were “smearing her”.
Tom, who released Revenge: Meghan, Harry And The War Between The Windsors last week, exclusively told OK!: “Meghan had convinced Harry that William’s staff were smearing her.
"Whispers about a tiara, that Kate had cried, her own demand for aerosol in St George’s chapel and now the staff’s outrageous complaints about her behaviour were, she said, invented to undermine her.”
Tom also writes in Revenge about the infamous bridesmaid fitting for Princess Charlotte. Press reports said the princess’s mother, Kate, was left in tears by it, although Meghan later told Oprah Winfrey it was the other way around.
“Kate thought [the dress] was too short,” Tom writes in the unauthorised biography. “Meghan’s assistant and the dress fitters witnessed Meghan emphatically reject Kate’s observation. Compromise was not a trait Meghan embraced. Kate burst into tears.”
He claims 40 year old Meghan also compared the then-three-year-old princess’s bridesmaid’s dress “unfavourably” to that worn by another flower girl.
The rift between William and Harry has been long-running and has showed no signs of healing. It was allegedly sparked when William told his younger brother to take things slowly with his now-wife.
And Tom claims that by the time Meghan and Harry decided to step down as senior royals, which was confirmed in a statement in February 2021, things had “broken down” between the former “Fab Four”.
He says: “Relations between the four [Harry, Meghan, Kate and William] had broken down. At the heart of their divergence was Meghan’s unwillingness to be part of a team. There was no intimacy,”
Tom adds that he thinks it is “too late” for a reconciliation between the brothers because of “Meghan’s tendency to play the victim”.
The author, who has also written biographies of Prince Charles and Tony Blair and Prince Charles, goes on to say that Meghan “did everything she could” to stop him talking to those who had previously worked with her or were friends with her.
He adds: “I was very keen to talk to old boyfriends, people who knew her in Hollywood. Meghan did everything she could to stop me from talking to her friends and people that worked with her.
"It was foolish of her to ignore me, because they would probably be happier with the book if they could tell their story.”
At the time of the going to press, OK! had not had a response from Harry and Meghan’s representatives.
