The cover of the Duchess of Sussex’s magazine sparked an “even deeper rift” between the princes.
Meghan Markle’s article in Vogue was not well received by the Royal Family, who are supposed to remain politically neutral, revealed an explosive new biography.
The magazine cover featuring the Duchess of Sussex sparked an “even deeper rift” between Prince Harry and his brother, Prince William, said Robert Lacey.
The author, in his book ‘Battle of the Brothers’, claims that Prince William and Harry had a ‘showdown’ over Meghan Markle’s appearance in Vogue.
According to a news outlet, the Duchess of Sussex suggested being a guest editor for the September (2019) issue, after she was approached to star on the cover.
However, Lacey, who is an advisor to Netflix’s ‘The Crown’, claims that Prince William tried to talk to his brother about Meghan’s issue of magazine, but it all ended in a furious “showdown.”
Meghan selected more than a dozen women from around the world to appear on her cover of ‘Forces for Change’, including climate change activist Greta Thunberg, Mexican actress Salma Hayek, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Arden and body positivity activist and actress Jameela Jamil.
It was also reported that the Duke and Duchess allegedly decided not to join the rest of the royal family at Balmoral that summer as a result of the ‘showdown’.
The author, who examines Prince Harry and Prince William’s relationship in the months leading up to Megxit, says it resulted in ‘another classic Harry blowout, followed by an even deeper breakup.’
Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, authors of the biography ‘Finding Freedom’, write: ‘incredibly sensitive’, Prince Harry called William a ‘snob’ for warning him to be careful with ‘this girl’ Meghan Markle.
