Andrew Morton, the author of the updated book Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, says Prince Harry ‘threw a fit’ over a tiara in the lead up to his wedding to Meghan Markle but it was Meghan who ‘got it in the neck’.
Meghan Markle “got it in the neck” as being “Duchess Difficult” even though it was Prince Harry who “threw a bit of a fit” over a tiara, an author has claimed.
The couple tied the knot in a huge ceremony at St George’s Chapel in Windsor back in May 2018, with millions of people around the world tuning in to watch.
Meghan wore a gorgeous dress by Givenchy, teamed with the Queen’s beautiful 1932 diamond bandeau tiara.
And according to one of the new chapters in the unauthorized biography Meghan: A Hollywood Princess by Andrew Morton, Harry lost his cool in the run-up to the wedding, when the tiara could not be made available for Meghan’s hair fitting with her stylist.
Morton appeared on ITV’s This Morning, where he was asked if he believed if Harry and Meghan thought the entire institution of the monarchy “was against them”.
And he told the program, he thought Meghan had taken the flack for Harry’s past behavior.
He explained: “It seems to me that Harry did feel that ‘the men in grey suit’ as Diana used to call them, were quite hostile.
“And he took umbrage for example when the hairdresser arrived from New York for a fitting for the tiara and the tiara wasn’t available and he threw a bit of a fit.
“And it was Meghan who got it in the neck as the ‘Duchess Difficult’.
“When you look down through the years, every royal princess or duchess is the one that takes the flack.
“Fergie got the flack early on in her marriage, Diana was called a fiend and a monster after she’d been in the family for about 18 months or so. It is the case that the woman gets the blame.”
Later this month, an updated version of Meghan: A Hollywood Princess is being released with six new chapters.
Among the new claims in the updated book are that Meghan and Harry thought a lovely picture of the Queen and her three heirs Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince George was ” unspoken code” about their royal future and that they suspected the “entire institution was conspiring against them”.
When it comes to Meghan’s relationship with the Duchess of Cambridge, it is claimed that Kate didn’t have “much energy” to get to know and bond with Meghan in the lead up to the Sussex wedding as she was going through a difficult pregnancy with Louis.
Morton also claims that despite the tensions and much-discussed row between the women at a bridesmaid dress fitting, Meghan bought Kate a bracelet to thank her for the wedding preparation help.
Meanwhile, Morton, who wrote a bestselling book on Princess Diana, also writes the late princess is the “third wheel” in Harry and Meghan’s marriage and that her “ghost” looms over the couple’s lives and defines their view of the world.
