Harry 'threw a fit' over tiara but Meghan was branded 'Duchess Difficult', claims Morton

On Wednesday’s This Morning, ITV hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield spoke with journalist Andrew Morton about his new book titled, Meghan: A Hollywood Princess. The author’s new biography is based on Meghan Markle, although, he admitted to the hosts he wasn’t given permission by the Duchess of Sussex to write the book and he has never met her. Andrew explained he had spoken with Meghan’s former teachers and school friends in order to gather information for his biography.

However, during the discussion, Andrew made a number of claims about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex which has been published in his book.

He claimed Prince Harry “threw a fit” when his wife’s tiara didn’t arrive from New York on time.

Phillip went on to ask him: “How do you know what you’re saying is true?”

Andrew explained he spoke with people who knew Meghan before she joined the Royal Family.

Andrew went on to discuss Princess Diana being the “third wheel” in the marriage of Harry and Meghan.

He told the hosts: “Harry said so. When you look at their decision making, it’s been to protect Meghan’s safety and security, Archie and Lilibet.

“Harry said it’s been his priority and one of the reasons they decided to leave the Royal Family was because they didn’t feel their children were going to get the kind of protection they needed.”

When asked by Phillip whether he was anti-The Firm and Andrew protested: “No, I’m trying to understand Meghan and as a human being, how did she relate to The Firm?”

He claims: “In many respects, The Firm is far more malleable and accommodating than it was in the past… But it is a clash of the new world versus the old world.”


Phillip concluded the interview by quizzing Andrew on whether he thought Meghan was aware of what the Royal Family was about before marrying Prince Harry.

He told the hosts: “She didn’t read the tabloids, she didn’t watch TMZ, she learnt what she learnt from Harry.

“Harry was quite jaded with the Royal Family, even before this. She’s had a very rambunctious education into the royal world.

She’s had members of the household give her advice and she’s a quick study, but it takes many years for someone to accommodate themselves into the Royal Family.”

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
