Meghan Markle may soon deem Prince Harry “redundant” to her needs as she focuses on her own ambitions and successes, according to a royal biographer. Tom Bower, author of Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the War Between the Windsors, told GB News host Dan Wootton he believes Meghan is out for her own interests, even accusing her of producing an “extraordinary marketing campaign”.
Since stepping down as working royals in 2020 and moving to California, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been putting out their own projects and sharing their side of the story of life in the Firm.
In his GB News interview, Mr Bower claimed that Meghan’s “number one interest is herself, and the second interest is money”.
He added: “What’s interesting is the people she goes to. Who is going to maximize Meghan’s popularity, who’s going to make her really big and very rich?
The royal author accused the Duke and Duchess of painting themselves as the “victims” of the Royal Family when he claims they are in fact the “aggressors”.
In their Netflix series Harry and Meghan claimed the royal households had deliberately leaked stories about the Sussexes to deflect from coverage about other members of the Firm.
Meghan’s lawyer Jenny Afia says in the program: “There was a real kind of war against Meghan and I’ve certainly seen evidence that there was negative briefing from the palace against Harry and Meghan to suit other people’s agendas.”
Meghan’s friend Lucy Fraser added: “Meg became this scapegoat for the palace. And so they would feed stories on her whether they were true or not to avoid other less favorable stories being printed.”
