PRINCE Harry felt like the Royal Family “never spoke up” to support him and Meghan Markle, it has been claimed.
And the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were left frustrated when conversations with the Palace didn’t “lead anywhere”.
It’s yet another bombshell claim about the couple’s lives in the Royal Family, and what made them make the drastic decision to quit.
In the unauthorised biography Finding Freedom, it was claimed Harry wanted to feel supported by the Royal Family.
But a source told authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand that Harry felt “there were so many occasions” when the Royal Family “could have helped them, stood up for them, backed them up, and never did”.
And while the couple flagged their frustrations with the palace, the book claimed: “These conversations didn’t really lead anywhere.”
It comes after it was claimed Harry fell out with his brother after Prince William urged him to not rush his relationship with Meghan – referring to the former actress as “this girl”.
A source claimed: “Harry was upset that it was playing out so publicly and that so much of the information being reported was wrong.
“There had been moments where he felt people working with his brother had put things out there to make William look good, even if it meant throwing Harry under the bus.
“It was a confusing time, and his head was all over the place—he didn’t know who or what to believe, and he and William weren’t talking enough either, which made everything a lot worse.”
A courtier then claimed the Queen became concerned over the rift between the brothers with a crisis meeting then held in 2019.
After spending Christmas in Canada, Meghan and Harry released the bombshell announcement they were quitting the Royal Family in January this year.
The couple then conducted their last few Royal engagements in the UK – pictured at Westminster Abbey with Kate and William barely speaking.
Following the service, Meg booked the first flight to Canada feeling “emotional bruised and exhausted.”
Baby Archie’s birth has also widely been reported to be one of the reasons the couple left the Royal Family – with Harry and Meghan wanting to protect their son from the scrutiny and give him a normal life.
Even while they were part of the Firm, fiercely protective Meghan made sure Archie’s christening on July 6 last year was a “completely private affair” at the Queen’s Chapel in Windsor Castle attended by just 22 guests.
While she came under attack for breaking tradition and not allowing the media or the public a glimpse of baby Archie on his special day, Meghan didn’t care, according to the book authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand.
