Harry and Meghan will never take on official roles again after the bombshell biography revealing their divide with the royal family.
The couple have every chance of creating a new position with the help of the queen and high-ranking kings, "torpedoed" when their "trial period" ends in the United States, sources believe.
The book, which reveals its bad relationship with the monarchy in hideous details, is likely to dash all hopes of renegotiating its royal duties when the "Megxit" is discussed.
The revelations will also harm efforts to repair their divide with Harry's brother William and sister-in-law Kate, is feared.
A royal household source said: “The door will always be open to you as beloved family members.
"But it's hard to see how they can now save the new role they wanted as" hybrid "royals who, alongside royal duties from the United States, are also pursuing commercial careers."
Another source said in the mail: & # 39; The review period has not yet been discussed, but it doesn't seem to be a way to go back now. Some very private family matters have now been broadcast publicly, apparently with their blessings. It will be hurtful. & # 39;
The book, published in The Times and Sunday Times, describes the increasingly bitter relationship between Harry and William and the roller coaster romance in which the couple declared "I love you" within three months.
It also claims:
- Harry was so intrigued by Meghan that he convinced himself that she was the woman he would only marry after her second date.
- Meghan gave the paparazzi a tip as an actress in Canada, although she later claimed that she didn't understand "boulevard culture".
- Meghan's friends claimed that she had suffered prejudice from the royal household, and a manager heard him say to a colleague, "There's only one thing about her that I just don't trust."
- Harry believed that William was a "snob" because he had urged him not to fall into his relationship with Meghan because he feared that his brother was "blind to lust". The brothers have hardly spoken since.
- Meghan was "disappointed" that Kate didn't welcome her to the family and found her frosty.
- A high-ranking king described the ex-actress as "Harry's Showgirl".
- Harry felt "unprotected" by his family and belittled within the palace walls because he was "too sensitive and open".
- Senior courtiers in other households felt that the worldwide popularity of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex "must be limited".
- A tearful Meghan told friends of her decision to give up royal duties: "I gave up my whole life for this family."

The one-year trial period was intended to give all family members breathing space, with the queen and other high-ranking kings helping to decide the couple's future
The one-year trial period should allow all family members to breathe and allow Harry and Meghan to start their independent new lives and give them the opportunity to return to the royal herd if they change their minds.
But several sources believe how the couple behaved in Los Angeles – like renting a dazzling mansion in Beverly Hills for £ 14.5 million – and now the bomb book has put an end to any hope of their return, at least in a work role.
A high-profile personality added: “Given the state of the world, this just seems so out of date. The Sussex people have to move on. & # 39;
Harry and Meghan have publicly denied giving or contributing to the authors of Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Formation of a Modern Royal Family. However, their statement did not address whether they had given permission to work with their closest friends, co-workers, and co-workers.
Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand say that they wrote the book "Participation of those closest to the couple" and boast of having access to Harry and Meghan's personal and professional "inner circle". Insiders firmly believe that this would only have happened with the couple's permission, tacitly or otherwise.
Some specific incidents, including details of Archie's night nurse's release and a private lunch Harry had with the Queen, which was mentioned in the advertisement for the book, would have been largely known only to Harry and Meghan.
While the biography contains few new details, it offers a fascinating account of the events of the past two years that have shaken the royal family from the perspective of Harry and Meghan. And their resentment is too clear for the world to see.
Royal insiders believe that the "bitterness" and "reckoning" that characterize the book mock the Queen's warm words when she gave her blessing to seek a new life in North America, but deliberately "left the door open", saying they would review the agreements in January next year. The couple have of course insisted on keeping their Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage, as their UK base when they stay here with their son Archie, who has not returned since November last year.
Courtiers point out that other royals, including William and Kate, had failed to publish their own opinions on recent events to "let the dust settle."
Two other sources said the biography – called the "Harry and Meghan Gospel" – made the couple seem "irrelevant", especially at the height of the global Covid crisis.
"The world has evolved as a result of the pandemic, and so has the royal family," said one.
& # 39; This book has nothing new, frankly, friends only represented events through a certain lens. People usually realize that it is actually much more nuanced and finely balanced.
"There are much more important things in the world, is the general view in the palace."
The other source added: “Nobody is angry. Everything was to be expected. But it is hoped that now they have everything they want to get off their chests, keep going, and be happy with their lives.
“People are all too familiar with it and nobody wins. They seem to be fighting invisible enemies here, there and everywhere. & # 39;
Courtiers point out that other royals, including William and Kate, have failed to publish their own opinions on recent events to "let the dust settle," but the new biography has "a hole in the matter." blown up".
Snubs … or just a cutback? After the explosive claims of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's biography, royal insiders give YOUR side of the story
Harry and Meghan's biography contains a number of fire claims about how the company avoided them.
Finding Freedom, dubbed the "Gospel to the Sussex," is said to have been written with the couple's blessing, and its authors had access to their inner circle.
The book spans 24 chapters and contains a series of results and malicious attacks on the royal family, courtiers and the media, page by page. Outrage and resentment are directed particularly against William and Kate because they supposedly shouldered the Sussex people cold from the beginning of their relationship.
Even the queen, who has done a lot behind the scenes to make her journey from royal life easier, is being reprimanded for the couple for obvious trifles.
The amazing book has sparked new accusations about who was responsible for the bitter aftermath of the Megxit.
Others in the royal household have struck back and attacked the biography as a partial report designed to gloss over the behavior of Harry and Meghan.
Courtiers who read excerpts from the book quickly insisted that the version of events performed by friends of the Sussex people was wrong.
Here the mail outlines some of the most amazing allegations – and checks whether they stand up to scrutiny.
Viper courtiers accused of suppressing their plans
Older courtiers whom Princess Diana used to call "men in gray suits" are known as "vipers".
The book claims that the so-called "old guard" tried to undermine the couple and "feared that the global interest and popularity of the Sussex people would have to be curbed".
Harry and Meghan believed that "only a few in the palace were looking for their interests" and believed that most of the courtiers could not be trusted with their sensitive information.
They believed that these "men in gray suits" were suppressing their attempts to launch their initiatives, and when they tried to express these frustrations, "the conversations were going nowhere."
A source said Harry felt that some of the old guards in the palace "simply didn't like Meghan and would stop at nothing to make their lives difficult".

The book concludes that Meghan was "completely alien" to this group of advisors, who "could sometimes be even more conservative than the institution they guarded".
The description of high-ranking palace courtiers as “vipers” has caused some amusement in royal circles and has created the image of a group of bikers in leather jackets.
"Maybe there would have been a problem thirty years ago, but that's just ridiculous now," said an insider.
The source said it was obvious "why it would fit the book's narrative," but insisted that the description was "simply not true."
Another insider said, "The fact is that Meghan was welcomed with open arms and everyone was doing their best to help navigate in such a tricky public role – advice that she often ignored.
"They did the best they could under often difficult circumstances."
The "A team" of employees who have shrunk
In an interview yesterday, one of the book's authors rejected the idea that Meghan was pushy for her employees – despite numerous departures.
Omid Scobie said Meghan's high profile actress career and the fact that she was divorced left her "ripe for exploitation."
However, insiders have often pointed to the couple's arrogance. The Duchess was surrounded by an "A-Team" of top-class women who all wanted to promote their boss's world vision. But everyone went one by one.
First, the couple's assistant, Melissa Toubati, quit in November 2018, six months after starting the job, after being said to have been moved to tears by her boss.
"So that didn't happen," said Scobie. He then gave legal reasons for refusing to draft it.
A few weeks later, the couple's private secretary, Samantha Cohen, left the royal family after 17 years. In January last year, Meghan's bodyguard left after only six months.
Archie's first nurse did not survive her second night until she was "released" for "unprofessional and irresponsible" behavior, Scobie said.
In his book Charles At Seventy, royal biographer Robert Jobson claimed that Megan's wedding preparations were so stressful that Harry was "irritated and quick-tempered" towards employees.
Charlotte's Tears Dress

The authors insist that Kate had no tears over Meghan's "strict demands" related to her wedding.
It was claimed in November 2018 that Meghan brought her sister-in-law to tears over Princess Charlotte's bridesmaid dress. The Daily Telegraph reported that two sources said the Duchess of Cambridge cried for a dress that would fit Charlotte, as pictured below at her mother's wedding.
The mail also spoke to sources that support the claim that Kate is deeply upset. The book rejected the story yesterday, describing the allegations as "puzzling" and asking if anyone from the palace could be behind the story.
It was said that adjutants should "have made the record clear" because it was a "ridiculous story" that was "so wrong".
"Some of the children didn't cooperate and there was a lot going on," said the source. "Everyone tried to help where they could, but it is never easy with children to furnish." There were no tears from anyone. And in the end the adjustment was good.
"Kate and Meghan were both a bit stressed, but there were professionals in the room and there were other people."
Trigger a smell in the chapel?
According to royal sources, Meghan disliked the musty smell of St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle and asked to use air fresheners before their wedding guests arrived.
This is said to have shocked Buckingham Palace officials, who pointed out that the chapel was a regular place of worship for the Queen – and for successive monarchs since 1475 – and if it were good enough for her, it would be good enough for her.
But a passage in Finding Freedom rejects this thought. The truth, it is said, was that discrete, Baies-scented air diffusers (pictured) for the chapel provided by Diptyque had been approved by everyone involved.
The excitement about the smell was first revealed by the Daily Mail a few months after the wedding. Insiders at both Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace confirmed that the Duchess's request for the fragrant diffusers had been made and that it had not been well received. These sources were on her account last night.

"Ignored" by Wills and Kate in the Abbey
During one of her recent engagements as senior royals, Meghan was "deliberately insulted" by Kate in front of a global television audience, the authors claim.
Shortly after Harry and Meghan arrived at Westminster Abbey on the 70th anniversary of the Commonwealth in March, they greeted William and Kate with a smile, but received "little response."
William nodded to Harry and supposedly "ignored" his sister-in-law.
"For the minutes before the Queen's arrival, William and Kate sat with their backs to the couple and only turned to chat with Prince Edward and Sophie next to the Sussex," the authors wrote.
"Meghan tried to make eye contact with Kate – the Duchess barely recognized her."
In an interview with The Times, Mr. Scobie said, "To deliberately berate your sister-in-law … I don't think it left a good taste in the couple's mouth."
Royal observers point out that the "icy encounter" was the first time they'd all seen each other since the Sandringham Summit showdown on the role of Sussexes two months earlier, and a formal event wasn't the moment to Rebuilding bridges.

Stay solo with the polo
The book claims that Meghan and Kate's "warm but distant relationship" was evident when the couple appeared side by side at the King Power Royal Charity Polo Day last summer.
Although the Duchesses were pictured with their children, the "two hardly seemed to exchange a word," it was claimed.
The authors wrote: "The state of affairs between the two women was just a spin-off of the real problem: the conflict between Harry and the institution."
The picture of disillusionment
The couple were dismayed when no photo of them and their son Archie was shown during the Queen's Christmas speech last year.
According to Finding Freedom, they considered it a nudge that their photo could not be seen on the desk in the green salon at Buckingham Palace, from where the monarch gives her traditional annual address.
The couple already felt that "they had been excluded from the institution for a long time and were not an integral part of their future" and regarded the episode as "another sign that they had to consider their own way".
Photos of the Duke and Duchess were included in the Queen's speech in 2018, but last year she decided to show pictures of her father King George VI, Prince Charles and Camilla, and a family photo of the Cambridge. The book quotes palace sources as saying that they wanted to illustrate the succession line.
Yesterday sources mocked the suggestion that it was the lack of her picture from the Queen's desk that prompted Harry and Meghan's decision to leave.

As Prince Harry was the first to say "I love you": Royal and Meghan Markle knew after the first two dates that they would "be together," reveals the bomb biography
Prince Harry was the first to say "I love you" in his relationship with Meghan Markle. Friends revealed that the couple were "immediately obsessed" with each other, according to the latest excerpt from a bomb biography.
The couple felt "noticeable attraction" after their first date at the Dean Street townhouse in Soho, London, with Harry reportedly remaining in a "trance" and telling Meghan friends "that could have legs".
Harry drank a beer, while Meghan drank a martini as they discussed their work, so engrossed that their nibbles were neglected.
On this first date, which lasted three hours, Harry talked about his charity work and many trips to Africa. He shared a passion for wanting to "change something forever" with Meghan in order to connect them.
They didn't kiss that first night, although sources said they were "in their own little world" and made plans to meet again soon.
This meeting took place the next evening, according to the Finding Freedom biography written by the authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand.
The authors say that they have spoken to more than 100 sources, including "close friends of Harry and Meghan, royal aides and palace staff (past and present)", with all information in the book including "at least two sources".
In the latest excerpt, they delved deeply into the story of how Harry and Meghan became a couple, their first dates, their first visit to Kensington Palace, and Harry just three months after their relationship, to which Meghan quickly said, "I love you" said answered "I love you too".
The couple connected almost instantly, friends said, on their second date, also at Dean Street Townhouse in Soho, which took place the day after their first.
They enjoyed a romantic dinner where the staff went out of their way to protect their privacy and brought them in through a staff entrance where fish was usually brought in discreetly.
They talked all night, with Harry returning to Kensington Palace alone, although he later admitted to friends that Meghan "ticked every box".

They tried to hide their romance even though Meghan posted a post on Instagram that featured a photo of a Love Hearts candy that reads & # 39; Kiss Me & # 39; and the heading & # 39; Lovehearts in # London & # 39; contained. She also followed Prince Harry's private account.
Just one night after the second date, Meghan was taken to Kensington Palace in a shroud of secrecy, where Harry tried to impress her with stories about his work and life, which he admitted to being a little crazy.
Just six weeks later, Harry told her he wanted to take her on a trip and asked Meghan to fly to London.
She flew in from Toronto, spent a night with Harry at Kensington Palace before the couple flew to Johannesburg the next morning.
From there, they flew on a private plane to Maun International Airport before flying to the Okavango Delta – a breathtaking 5,800 square mile wetland in Botswana’s Safari Land.
They spent most of the trip in one of the £ 1,529 luxury tents per night.
A friend said: "She came back smiling and completely banned."
They enjoyed the trip so much that "they would have loved to spend the whole summer there" if the commitments had not been at home.
Meghan also spoke of the closeness she felt to Harry.
"I've never felt so safe," said Meghan to her friend, "so close to someone in such a short time."
After that, they regularly enjoyed secret meetings, with Harry taking commercial flights to Toronto to see them.
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.
The Botswana trip, technically just her third date, served as an "acceleration" for her relationship, friends claimed.
"Until then," said a friend, "they were already dancing around the idea that this could be a thing forever."
Meghan was there, regardless of warnings from confidants about the control associated with the royal marriage.
It only took Harry three months to say "I love you", although Meghan answered quickly.
The couple remained inconspicuous for the first few months and tried to keep their relationship out of the press.
However, Harry was soon noticed in the neighborhood of Meghan, the biography said, and his visits became an open secret as royal thinkers sat in black SUVs and ate burritos.
During a trip to Toronto in October, Harry was informed by one of his staff that a tabloid should reveal his relationship with Meghan.
The adjutant and a few others from the palace urged Harry to come home, citing his minimal security and the fact that he would soon be under siege by photographers.
But Harry refused to move.
The news came out the next day, with Meghan being disappointed, according to the biography, even though she was relieved not to have to lie to friends about her trips to London.
Harry had warned Meghan that their relationship was "inevitable" and said he wanted to "make the most of the time they had", although Meghan still admitted to being surprised by the immediate attention.
In 24 hours, Meghan received 100 messages from people she hadn't spoken to in months or even years and who asked everyone about the news.
A short time later, a photographer from a LA-based photo agency climbed the fence into her garden and waited for Meghan in her car, hoping to get a picture before setting off to run errands.
Meghan was afraid and called the police. "It will always be that way, won't it?" she said to a friend.
Social media is also going to be hell for Meghan. Some publish racist messages calling it "n *****" or "mutt".
The terrible messages made Harry angry, Meghan's experience served the prince as an introduction to racism.
In fact, friends believe that Meghan's experience with races and the prejudices Harry had to deal with led him to grapple with his own circle of friends.
In an excerpt published yesterday, Scobie and Durand described how Meghan, who was sitting on her face in a bathtub on FaceTime, admitted that she had sent one last text to her father the night before her wedding in May 2018
When he questioned his new relationship and whether it was "suitable", he wondered whether race or class mattered.
He immediately cut off the connection to an old friend who degraded Meghan and her Hollywood background.
This caused Harry to protect her and he decided to make an official statement.
However, the statement collided with his father Prince Charles' tour of the Middle East, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall had just arrived in Bahrain to meet the country's king, Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa.
It was a critical moment that had been underway for months, and a Kensington Palace statement condemning the press and affirming that Harry's new girlfriend would virtually preclude reporting on Prince Charles' tour.
Trotzdem beschloss der Palast, die Erklärung fortzusetzen, die größtenteils von Harry selbst verfasst wurde.
Sein Vater erfuhr erst 20 Minuten vor ihrer Veröffentlichung von der Erklärung, und es war nicht überraschend, dass sie bald den Nachrichtenzyklus dominierte.
Prinz Charles und sein Team waren niedergeschlagen und enttäuscht, obwohl Charles auch verstand, dass die Intervention notwendig war.
Die Episode diente jedoch nur als Beweis dafür, dass Harry das Bedürfnis verspürte, der Frau, die er liebte, Vorrang vor der königlichen Familie einzuräumen.
Hat Prinz Harry Meghan Markle drei Monate lang einen Urlaub in Botswana vorgeschlagen, bevor er es der Welt erzählte? Laut neuer Biografie waren sie „im August 2017 heimlich verlobt“.
Prinz Harry hat Meghan Markle möglicherweise drei Monate vor ihrer offiziellen Ankündigung vorgeschlagen, eine Bombenbiographie zu veröffentlichen, in der die dramatische Abkehr der Sussexes vom königlichen Leben beschrieben wird.
Laut Finding Freedom haben sich der Herzog und die Herzogin von Sussex "im August 2017 heimlich verlobt".
Im selben Monat unternahmen die beiden eine Reise nach Botswana, wo sie sowohl Meghans 36. Geburtstag als auch ihr erstes Jahr als Paar gefeiert haben sollen.
Während ihres Verlobungsinterviews im November 2017 sagte Prinz Harry, er habe die Frage "Anfang dieses Monats" gestellt, während das Paar in einer "gemütlichen Nacht" "Brathähnchen" machte.

In der von Omid Scobie und Carolyn Durand verfassten Biografie heißt es in einer Quelle, dass Prinz William in seiner Beziehung zu Meghan kurz vor ihrer Verlobung im August versucht habe, "sicherzustellen, dass Harry nicht blind vor Lust ist".
According to the book published by The Times and The Sunday Times, Harry was offended when William told him, "Take as much time as you need to meet this girl."
Harry is said to have viewed the choice of the words "this girl" as condescending.
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.
In ihrem Verlobungsinterview 2018 erinnerte sich Harry daran, wie er Meghan "überzeugt" hatte, nach Botswana zu fliegen, um mit ihm eine Reise zu unternehmen, und sagte, sie verbrachten romantische fünf Tage damit, unter freiem Himmel zu campen.
"Ich dachte an drei, vielleicht vier Wochen (nach ihrem ersten Date), als ich sie überreden konnte, zu mir nach Botswana zu kommen", sagte er damals.
"Und wir, wir haben unter den Sternen miteinander gezeltet, wir haben verbracht, sie ist gekommen und hat sich mir für fünf Tage dort draußen angeschlossen, was absolut fantastisch war."
Das Land hat eine besondere Bedeutung für Prinz Harry, der Botswana kurz nach dem Tod seiner Mutter Prinzessin Diana zum ersten Mal besuchte, als er mit seinem Bruder und seinem Vater dorthin reiste.
Harry verliebte sich auf dieser ersten Reise in das Land und ist seitdem regelmäßig zurückgekehrt, um sich zunehmend für den Schutz der Tierwelt in Botswana zu engagieren.
When it came to finding the perfect engagement ring for Meghan, Harry even chose to source a diamond from Botswana – which he has previously referred to as his 'second home'.
The stone was paired with two diamonds from a tiara that belonged to Princess Diana.
Finding Freedom provides an intimately detailed and personalised version of the events leading up to the Sussexes' dramatic departure from royal life, with co-authors Scobie and Durand insisting 'all information in this book has at least two sources'.
Harry and Meghan deny giving interviews.
