MEGHAN Markle’s claims that she was given inadequate preparation for becoming a royal are a “total lie”, sources insist. 

The Duchess of Sussex was in fact given a 30-point dossier about her role six months before her wedding, including a list of experts who could assist her, the insider said. 

Meghan Markle’s claims she had inadequate preparation for the Royal Family are ‘total lies’, a source claims

The Duchess of Sussex, pictured with the late Queen, was said to have been given a 30-point dossier on her role

Her information sheet, given by Prince Harry’s then-private secretary Ed Lane Fox, known as Elf, also covered fashion, the royal family, heads of departments, ladies-in-waiting, arts in the UK, the Charity Commission and public life.

She had moaned about not knowing what a walkabout was, how to curtsey and having to Google the national anthem. 

And she specifically told the £88million Netflix documentary: “Joining this family, I knew that there was a protocol for how things were done. 

“I remember that old movie Princess Diaries with Anne Hathaway. There’s no class or some person who goes ‘sit like this’, ‘cross your legs like this’, ‘use this fork’, ‘don’t do this’, ‘curtsey then’, ‘wear this kind of hat’.

“It doesn’t happen. So I needed to learn a lot.”

But the source told The Times: “There was prep for everything, walkabouts — even though she was engaged to someone who’d done hundreds of them — clothes, everything. The level of support was intense.”

They added of the dossier: “It was huge. The amount of work Elf put into getting her access to anyone, and he gave her books on the stuff.”

It is understood the Duchess had just two meetings with the experts. One was with the late-Queen’s private secretary Sir, now Lord, Christopher Geidt.

The other was with a “very well-connected, trusted fashion person” for advice on clothes.

Meanwhile, sources close to the King and Queen and Prince William and Princess Catherine confirmed they will “never” watch the series, The Times reported. 

The first three episodes aired on Thursday and the final three will be released next Thursday.

It was a ratings hit in the UK but flopped in the US and with critics.

And the majority of Brits now want the couple to be stripped of their royal titles in the wake of its release.

The Royal Family were also said to be in “in a state of sadness” after the Sussexes launched a wave of astonishing attacks.
