KATE Middleton was worried for Prince Harry when she learned about Meghan Markle’s bizarre relationship with her family, it has been claimed.
Kate Middleton, 39, is understood to have expressed concerns to Harry after he brought Meghan to stay with them at their Norfolk home Amner Hall for Christmas in 2017 shortly after they announced their engagement.
Speaking to The Sun , Ingrid Seward, editor in chief of Majesty Magazine, claimed: ‘She could not understand why Harry had never met his future father-in-law, nor why Meghan, who Harry assured was The One and “ticked all his boxes”, appeared embarrassed about her family and unwilling to speak about them apart from her mother. ”

HARRY LIKELY REGRETFUL AND EMBARRASSED OVER INTERVIEW – BIOGRAPHER
Prince Harry is likely feeling “regretful and embarrassed” following his tell-all interview with Oprah, according to a royal biographer.
Duncan Larcombe, author of "Prince Harry: The Inside Story," told the UK's Closer magazine the Duke of Sussex lashed out at the royals because he’s a “hot-headed guy”.
"Harry was clearly hurt and angry about Meghan's experience with the royals — and used the interview to get it out," the longtime royal editor told the UK mag.
"But after returning home , I've no doubt he's been feeling embarrassed, regretful and awkward.”

CHARLES ‘WON’T LET IT DROP’
Prince Charles is still reeling at his son Harry for his Oprah Winfrey interview – despite holding peace talks, it is claimed.
US Weekly royal correspondent and podcast host Christina Garibaldi said Charles remains angry and added that the rumoured “slimming down” of the monarchy could freeze out Harry as the future king believes he is not worthy to be a royal, The Express reports.
Ms Garibaldi said an insider had told her: “Charles is still fuming about Harry throwing shade at him and the Royal Family in the big interview and won’t let it drop.”

HARRY ‘OPPOSITE’ OF WILLIAM WHEN IT COMES TO LOVE
Prince Harry was the “opposite” of brother William when it came to matters of the heart – and “wanted to marry every girl he loved”, a royal biographer has claimed.
And during his best man’s speech for William , Harry claimed his older brother “didn’t have a romantic bone in his body” before he met Kate Middleton.
By comparison, Harry “wore his heart on his sleeve”, Ingrid Seward says.
And he faced a very different time to his brother. That’s because William was “strictly off-limits to the media” while he attended university, which is where he met Kate.
Meanwhile, Harry had to “run the gauntlet of the intense public interest his love life generated”, Ingrid says.

HARRY ‘WAS FIRST TO KNOW ABOUT WILLIAM AND KATE’S ENGAGEMENT’
When Prince William decided he was going to ask Kate Middleton to marry him, Prince Harry was the first person he told, according to a royal author.
Ingrid Seward has revealed how William told his younger brother how he planned to pop the question in Africa – a country close to both of their hearts.
Ingrid told The Sun: "Once he had finally decided, the first person he told was Harry.
"His brother was impressed by William's romantic plan to propose to Kate in a remote lodge in Kenya, East Africa, accessible only by helicopter.
"Being Harry, he had to make a joke of it and suggested as well as the bottle of Champagne on hand for when she said yes, he should also have a bottle of brandy in case she said no. Romance for Harry was more difficult.”

Asked if she made Kate cry, Meghan told Oprah: “The reverse happened. A few days before the wedding she was upset about something, pertaining to … the flower girl dresses, and it made me cry. And it really hurt my feelings."
Now royal author Penny Junor has claimed that Meghan’s comments would most likely have infuriated William.
Ms Junor told The Express : “I would have thought one of the things William was most cross about was the fact that Meghan threw Kate under the bus.
“It wasn’t Harry, but it was his wife, and he must have known that she was going to do that and he clearly hasn’t corrected it in any way.
“It depends how Kate is feeling. I must say I would be pretty damn cross.”

MEGHAN ‘THREW KATE UNDER A BUS’
Meghan Markle "threw Kate Middleton under a bus" and left Prince William "pretty damn cross", it has been reported.
A royal author has said the claims made by the Duchess of Sussex during her bombshell Oprah interview has angered her in-laws.
In November 2018, it was reported that "Meghan left Kate in tears" over her demands for Princess Charlotte's bridesmaids dress during a "stressful" fitting.
It was then subsequently claimed that the "rift" began when Kate said the bridesmaids should follow royal protocol by wearing tights which Meghan disagreed with.
But speaking during her bombshell interview with Oprah, Meghan said she was the one left in tears, not the other way around.

MEGHAN ‘PREPARED HERSELF FOR A GRILLING’ BEFORE MEETING WILLIAM
Meghan Markle “prepared herself for a grilling” before meeting Prince William for the first time, it is claimed.
The Duke of Cambridge was said to be “wary” of her intentions.
Meg’s pal Omid Scobie, who penned Megxit biography Finding Freedom, said William had told her on their first meeting: “I was looking forward to meeting the girl who has put that silly grin on my brother’s face.”
He said Meg and Wills had “got along so well” after that initial meeting.
A confidante told Scobie: “She prepared herself for a grilling.”

However, he claims some of the blame should rest on Meghan.
He added: “It's up to you to do your own homework if you want to marry into a prestigious family.”
Since quitting the Royal Family, Meghan and Harry have signed two massive deals – one with Netflix rumoured to be worth £100m and another with Spotify believed to be worth about £30m.
Jobson believes that these moves were selfish and noted that the point of the Royal Family is centred on "service and helping others. It's not to do with helping yourself.
He said: "I'm afraid that's what's happened here. I blame Harry really because he knew the story but he wanted his cake and to eat it and you can't do that."
"The British people fund the Royal Family, it's our Royal Family, we expect them to show respect. Without the British people, the Royal Family doesn't exist."

HARRY IS ‘NOT THE SHARPEST GUY’
Meghan Markle's feud with the royals is Prince Harry’s fault because he didn't prepare her properly, a royal biographer has claimed.
It comes after the Duchess of Sussex's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, where she claimed she knew nothing about the Royal family before her marriage.
Now Robert Jobson, author of "Prince Philip's Century," has said he believes Meghan's lack of knowledge is mostly her husband's fault.
He told Page Six : "It's a combination of Harry and Meghan's fault, mainly Harry for not explaining it to her properly."
"He's not the sharpest guy, but maybe he didn't want to explain it. It's hard work being a member of the Royal Family.
"People think it's not but it is. It's not glamorous and maybe she didn't fancy that after at all."

While the arrangement is “informal” and on a “friendship” basis, the source says the Sussexes have spoken to the Obamas several times over the past few months.
The Duchess was earlier rumoured to be considering a White House bid, as she possesses “all the qualities” required of a strong candidate – but would “struggle” with the scrutiny of politics, according to her biographer Tom Bower.
Another source claims that former Secretary of State and First Lady Hillary Clinton was also supportive of the Sussexes in their transition to the US, with her former advisors “opening the door for assistance when needed.”
The source said: “Meghan is gathering high profile allies in the Democratic Party and positioning herself towards becoming politically active in the not too distant future.
“She feels that by entering into the political world she can really make a difference where it counts.”

‘BEYOND THE PALE’
The source added: “But to name Kate so publicly during the Oprah interview as the person who made her cry was beyond the pale. Meghan would have been acutely aware that Kate is powerless to fight back.
“Despite her growing confidence in public, Kate is a deeply sensitive woman who likes to stay behind-the-scenes as much as possible to support her family and the country. William thinks the way she has been treated is unfair.”
