Meghan Markle news latest – Prince Harry & Duchess' former aides could 'launch legal action' if memoirs are 'inaccurate'

Meghan Markle news latest – Prince Harry & Duchess' former aides could 'launch legal action' if memoirs are 'inaccurate'

PRINCE Harry was "set free" from the "agony" of Royal life by his wife Meghan Markle, an expert has claimed.

Previous claims that the Duchess allowed Harry to break-free of the Monarchy's shadow have been unearthed.

Journalist James Longman followed the couple closely and joined them for their 16-day visit to Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand in 2018 – and believes Meghan was the catalyst for Harry's exit from the Firm.

Speaking on ABC News documentary ‘Royal Divide: Harry, Meghan, and The Crown', the foreign writer said: “For me, maybe, Meghan is the woman that set Harry free."

He also suggested Harry even appeared “angry” during the trip, claiming the pressures of royal life were already affecting the couple.

It comes after the Duke told Oprah Winfrey earlier in the year how he felt "trapped" by the institution – claiming Charles and William were also in the same position.

“They don’t get to leave. And I have huge compassion for that,” Harry said during the broadcast.

    ‘SETTLING SCORES’

    Any potential revelations made in the book could prompt ex-Palace staffers to respond to the claims publicly – though they are bound by strict confidentiality laws.

    The source added: “There may be a provision given to staff members to respond to any claims that they consider to be inaccurate.

    “Maybe a blind eye could be turned if staff members used friends or family members to correct the record on their behalf.”

    Legal remedies could also be available if the book “smears any individual staff members unfairly”, the source claimed.

    PREMISE OF HARRY’S ‘TELL-ALL’ BOOK IS JUST ‘TIP OF THE ICEBERG’

    Industry insiders reportedly said the “tell-all” premise of Harry’s memoir was just the “tip of the iceberg”.

    A source told MailOnline that there is “anger and disappointment” within the palace and that the Queen is facing anxiety over the contents of Harry’s books.

    They said that senior Palace officals made the decision not to respond publicly to the Duke of Sussex’s announcement because they feared it would “fan the flames” of his already strained relationship with Prince Charles.

    Harry’s wife Meghan Markle, 39, is also set to write a “wellness” guide as part of the contract with the publisher.

    Members of the Royal Family are now waiting to see what the duke will write about them. There are also reportedly concerns about how his dad Charles’ wife Camilla Parker-Bowles will be represented in the book.

    EUGENIE AND BEATRICE REPORTEDLY ‘STUNNED’ BY HARRY BOOK DEAL

    Over the weekend, it was also reported that the sisters were “stunned” by Harry’s book deal.

    A senior royal reportedly told the Daily Mail: “The emotional turmoil as they wait over a year for publication is going to be torturous.

    “What’s really telling is even the relatives he remains closest to, like princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, are stunned by what he’s up to.”

    'PUBLICLY DISCREDIT STAFF'

    A royal source told Mail Online: “These are, on the whole, very good people who wanted the best for Harry and Meghan.

    “But many of the secrets they know are explosive and would blow up much of the victim narrative so carefully crafted by those two.

    “For example, some of these staff members were aware of commercial conversations that were going on when they were still full-time royals – they were clearing the way to make millions long before Megxit was revealed.

    “The way they tried to publicly discredit staff who they took against has been particularly distasteful and left a bad taste in the mouth of many courtiers past and present.

    “All options have to stay on the table because we are in unprecedented times. There is literally no precedent for this situation.”

    HarperCollins said the epilogue in the paperback edition will share: “Behind the scenes of Harry and Meghan’s ground breaking interview with Oprah, details behind the couple’s move to California (and) the various philanthropic and business endeavours the Sussexes have been involved with since their move and what’s to come with Archewell Productions.”

    It will also feature: “The continuous challenges the couple face regarding privacy and the British press (and) the heartbreak the couple felt over Prince Philip’s death.”

    The Duke of Sussex released a poignant tribute to his grandfather following his death, calling him a “master of the barbecue, legend of banter, and cheeky right till the end”.

    Harry later returned to the UK for the funeral without Meghan, who was pregnant at the time and advised not to travel by her doctors. The Finding Freedom update, which goes on sale on August 31 – the date Diana, Princess of Wales was killed in a car crash in 1997 – is said to have been written with the participation of those closest to the Sussexes.

    Two publishers reportedly flew out from London to Harry’s home in California and took part in an ‘auction’ for the rights to his book.

    “His starting price was $25m (£18m) and the final figure was way north of that, possibly as much as $35 to 40m (£25-29m).

    “Those involved were actually very shocked by his approach, which was to look at them coldly and state his demands: $25million.”

      PRINCESSES BEATRICE & EUGENIE ‘SYMPATHISE’ WITH PRINCE HARRY OVER BOOK DEAL AS HE WAS ‘RARELY HEARD’

      PRINCESS Beatrice and Princess Eugenie “sympathise” with Prince Harry over his book deal as he was “rarely heard” in the Royal Family, an insider has claimed.

      Earlier this month, the Duke, 36, announced he has been writing a new book about the “highs and lows” of his extraordinary life, which is due to be released in late 2022.

      It has been claimed Prince Harry’s upcoming tell-all memoir came as a “surprise” to Prince Charles, and the Palace “should be afraid” of what’s to come from it.

      Speaking to the Mail on Sunday, a friend claimed Harry’s cousins Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie understand why the Duke wants to tell his story.

      They said: “They believe Harry’s outspoken remarks may have been triggered because previously his voice and opinions were rarely heard within the Royal Family.”

      ROYAL AIDES ‘COULD LAUNCH LEGAL ACTION AGAINST MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY’ IF DUKE’S MEMOIR IS ‘INACCURATE’

      Staffers are reportedly braced for a string of bombshell allegations in the Duke of Sussex’s book, which is due to be published next year.

      Last week Harry announced he would be releasing a memoir next year – as Her Majesty celebrates 70 years of service – in which he will recount “experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons”. 

      But a small band of staffers who worked for the Duke and Duchess are now said to be concerned that the book could promote a false narrative of how they were treated while living in the UK, reports Mail Online.

      A royal insider told the website:  “Harry and Meghan’s former staff members are convinced that this book is being written to settle scores and will likely include a lot of detail about their time within the Royal Family.

      “Based on the Oprah Winfrey interview, some of these ex-workers simply do not trust that a full and accurate picture will be presented.

      “Conversations have already started about what steps they might be able to take to protect their own reputation and that of the monarchy post-publication.”

      AUSSIE CLAIMING TO BE PRINCE CHARLES & CAMILLA’S LOVECHILD COMPARES PIC OF HIS SON TO THE QUEEN

      Aussie Simon Dorante-Day, 55, is adamant he was conceived in 1965 when he says the royal couple were first romantically linked as teenagers.

      The UK-born engineer believes the couple conceived him when Charles was just 17, and Camilla 18 and he was later adopted by a family who had links to the Royal Family.

      The father-of-nine claims his adoptive grandparents Winifred and Ernest worked as a cook and gardener for the Queen and Prince Philip.

      They apparently told him “many times” he was Charles and Camilla‘s child.

      He has now had posted a picture on Facebook of his son, Liam, in the middle of two of Queen with the words: “Ummmm. An interesting comparison”.
