Royal courtiers joked that Meghan Markle would set up a beauty line if she left the royal family, a new bomb book will claim.
The book – Finding Freedom – is also said to claim that they refused to serve "an actress in a cable show" and that Harry and Meghan tried to express their frustrations with the courtiers, but their complaints fell on deaf ears.
Excerpts of the highly anticipated book will be published this weekend by The Times and The Sunday Times and will open the lid of The Firm's Sussex exit.
The Times reported that an adjutant joked that Meghan launched a number of beauty products when she left the royal family.
More specifically, the Sussexes had hoped to make a living from commercial, social impact lectures, and manufacturing businesses.
"Harry and Meghan would have had a cheaper deal to give them the life they wanted if they were done privately and with dignity," said a senior Buckingham Palace adviser to the Times.

Another courtier said: “They simplified what they wanted too much. They thought they would give Charles their driver, negotiate by email, rock to London, quit three months in advance, and fly back to Canada.
Elderly courtiers in other households – the so-called men in gray suits – did what they could to rule the popularity of Harry and Meghan even as they "took the monarchy to new heights around the world," the book says .
The couple tried for months to submit their complaints to other high-ranking kings – to no avail – but only a handful of people they could trust worked in the palace.
The authors say the Sussexes felt their complaints were not being taken seriously and believed that other royal households were telling stories about them to the press.
"There were only a handful of people in the palace they could trust," the authors write.
& # 39; A friend of the couple has the old guard as & # 39; referred to as the Vipers.
"In the meantime, a frustrated palace employee described the Sussexes team as" the squeaky third wheel "of the palace."
The Telegraph reported that when they signed up for "Queen and Country," the employees apparently turned their noses at the idea of serving "an actress on a cable show".
The fact that Meghan allegedly made Kate cry while wearing a bridesmaid dress that suited Princess Charlotte didn't help make her popular with Cambridge loyalists.
The book's authors, Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, said: "Although Meghan tried to make eye contact with Kate, the Duchess hardly recognized her."
Mr. Scobie told The Times: "To deliberately berate your sister-in-law … I don't think it left good taste in the couple's mouth."
The authors describe a culture of increasing tension between the Sussex and other members of the royal family.
Harry and Meghan "liked to be in control of their narrative in the early days of their marriage," the authors say.
However, it was a big disappointment to have to operate under the Buckingham Palace roof after separating her household from the Cambridge.
As their popularity grew, Harry and Meghan also had difficulty understanding why so few were looking for their interests in the palace. They were a big draw for the royal family, ”the authors write.
The book says that the Sussex people even considered breaking the protocol by making a surprise visit to the Queen when they thought they couldn't see the monarch.
Finding Freedom: Harry, Meghan, and the emergence of a modern royal family were written by royal observers Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, who are described as "cheerleaders" by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
A spokesman for Harry and Meghan said the couple had not contributed to the book, but had not denied the content of the Times excerpts.
The spokesman told the PA news agency: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to the search for freedom.
"This book is based on the authors' own experience as members of the Royal Press Corps and their own independent reporting."
The revelations come after the Sussexes took legal action in Los Angeles after allegedly using drones to photograph their 14-month-old son Archie.
A complaint lodged at the Los Angeles District Supreme Court on Thursday says that an unnamed person photographed Archie at her home during the ban.
The lawsuit alleges that the couple have been persecuted by paparazzi across North America and have been attacked with incessant interference in their private lives.
Harry and Meghan, who had left the royal family in March and said they wanted a more private life, "are not looking for special treatment at all" and only want the right to privacy, the lawsuit says.
The couple say they "have done everything in their power to stay out of the spotlight" except for what they consider to be current work.
Prince Harry started arguing with William years before the Megxit, and tensions escalated when his brother asked, "Are you sure about this?" New biography claims about his plan to marry Meghan Markle
The relationship between Prince Harry and Prince Williams began to collapse shortly after the younger king announced that he would marry Meghan Markle.
A new biography claims that "really harmful things were said and done" before the wedding.
However, Prince William took his brother aside in November 2017 and asked, "Are you sure about this?"
According to Carolyn Durrand's and Omid Scobie's book Finding Freedom, the Cambridges did not particularly welcome Meghan when they arrived in the UK.
A source told The Telegraph: "It was not a rivalry between the brothers, but rather the feeling that they would argue about who would be the leader in their various issues.
& # 39; Harry felt uncomfortable as a plus. They would show up at premieres and there was a feeling that he felt a bit like a spare part.
& # 39; Long before Meghan, he wanted to change things. He wanted to control his own narrative. He would say, "Why can't we use social media or record videos and cut out the press?"
According to sources, Kate and William were satisfied with the traditional royal answer "never complain, never explain".
Instead, Harry and Meghan wanted to answer any negative story.
Royal's sources claimed that this approach was counterproductive and some claimed that Meghan was "very difficult to work with".
