The photo for Prince Charles' 70th birthday was a nightmare, according to a book


The official 70th birthday photo of the Prince of Wales with his family was an "absolute nightmare" because his sons were blowing "hot and cold" with their father, the book says.

The photo released in 2018 showed the heir to the throne on a bench with Prince George on his knee and the Duchess of Cornwall and Princess Charlotte next to them.

Behind it stood Prince William and Kate, the Duchess held Prince Louis and Harry and Meghan.

The photo (picture) released in 2018 showed the heir to the throne on a bench with Prince George on his knee and the Duchess of Cornwall and Princess Charlotte next to them.

A source said it was difficult to arrange as "neither William nor Harry went to great lengths to make themselves available". The book's authors described Charles and Harry's relationship as "complicated".

But when Charles signed Covid-19, Harry immediately called his father to find out how he was, the book says. "Doctors described the Prince of Wales as 'in a good mood' and his symptoms as mild. It was still enough to worry Harry," the authors wrote.

He immediately called Charles in Birkhall, his Scottish home, where he has now been quarantined. Harry checked in regularly with his father until he was no longer quarantined and recovered – as did Camilla, who had isolated herself as a precaution. & # 39;

In the meantime, Meghan saw Prince Charles as a father figure – and he liked her just as much, the book says. She is said to have built such a close relationship with Charles that she considers him her "second father".

He is said to have given her a "real shine" and described her as a "cheeky, self-confident, beautiful American". A friend said, “He likes very strong, confident women. She is smart and confident and I can see why they became friends very quickly. & # 39;

Did the couple approve of their friends' revelations?

The book's authors, both long-time supporters of the Duke and Duchess, say it is an attempt to expose the "real Meghan and Harry" by combating the "persistent falsehoods and exaggerated conspiracies".

Harry and Meghan have publicly denied interviewing the authors or contributing to the book.

However, they failed to address whether or not they gave their closest friends, co-workers, and coworkers permission to work with him.

Authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand say they wrote the book with "the participation of those closest to the couple" and boast 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, tacit or otherwise.

The book also paints a very pro-Sussex picture of the chain of events that eventually led them to leave the UK.

And the biography contains intimate anecdotes that would only be known to the people who are closest to them.

Meghan's first cup of tea with the queen is also detailed in Finding Freedom – a clear violation of royal protocol. The book rejects the notion that such occasions should remain private and describes Meghan's first visit to the "inner sanctuary of the Queen's private apartment".

"Harry kissed his grandmother on both cheeks as they walked into their living room," the authors wrote. “Did she really see the chief of the Commonwealth? Today, however, it was only "Grandma," as Harry called the Queen, who sat on the silk, upholstered chair with a straight back. & # 39;

Meghan's insecurities drinking a mixture of Darjeeling and Assam tea were cleared when the Queen's corgi and two dorgis "came to her immediately".

Relationships with the larger royal family were not always that easy, however.

Princess Eugenie was upset when Harry and Meghan shared the news they were expecting at their wedding, the book says.

The Duchess announced she was pregnant last spring, ahead of a royal tour and when she was only 12 weeks old.

The authors wrote: “Family members had only learned of the pregnancy days earlier at Harry's closest cousin's wedding. It didn't go over very well with Eugenie, who, according to a source, told friends the couple should have waited to share the news. & # 39;

The book also revealed that Meghan was discussing her divorce with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, prior to their wedding. The two are said to have entered into a "close bond".

Before Meghan married Harry, she was baptized into the Church of England.

The book states that Meghan's beliefs are "extremely important to her," adding, "This is something most people don't know about her."

It also suggests that her first marriage to television producer Trevor Engelson failed because he disliked her newfound fame after getting a role in U.S. litigation.

Nanny let go in the middle of her second night

Harry and Meghan fired a night nurse for being "unprofessional and irresponsible," the book says.

The nameless nanny was laid off in the middle of her second night and was taking care of her son Archie, the authors said.

It is not known what the nanny allegedly did wrong.

The night nurse had been hired to set up a sleep schedule and be an extra pair of hands after Meghan's mother, Doria, returned to Los Angeles.

After the Duke and Duchess let the night nurse go, they hired a second night nurse who “did a good job”.

However, the book states: “Because of the incident with the first nurse, neither of them felt comfortable sleeping through the night without checking on Archie regularly.

"After a few weeks they decided to take care of the nights themselves and went out without a night nurse." Instead, they "hired a nanny to work on weekdays".

The book said Harry and Meghan had agreed that they "didn't want their house to be filled with staff," a situation Harry had seen at his brother William's home, where there was a housekeeper and a full-time nanny gave.

The authors wrote, “He and Meghan liked the idea that it was only the three of them in the house when they went to bed at night. Cozy and private. & # 39;

Classmates said nobody could be that perfect

Meghan's classmates at school viewed her as "wrong" because it was impossible to be that "perfect".

The book claims she always went one step further to help others. But despite the envy of her classmates, the book says she never saw herself like this.

Instead, she claims Meghan believed she had to prove more than anyone because of her race and not always know if she would fit in.

At school, Meghan joined a number of clubs and was eventually voted the homecoming queen title, much like prom queen.

One of the extra-curricular activities she was involved in was acting. Former acting teacher Gigi Perrau told the author: “She was incredibly hardworking. I was blown away by the strong work ethic she had at such a young age. & # 39; She is also said to have given her everything in every role, regardless of size.

Another friend apparently named her "Grace Under Fire" because "the pressures she was under didn't fall apart".

The 26 Most Frizzy Quotes From Finding Freedom: Friends who love Meghan's packing skills and call her "Grace under Fire", classmates who mock her for being "perfect" and like Harry being "hard to impress".

By DAN SALES for MAILONLINE

The controversial new Harry and Meghan biography Finding Freedom was finally released today, sparking a new wave of revelations about the Sussexes' strained relationship with the royal family and Megxit.

But eyebrows were raised at the praise both the authors and an army of nameless friends and sources put on the couple in the book.

Authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand go into great detail about the couple's intimate moments and inner thoughts – but the Duke and Duchess of Sussex claim they were not interviewed and did not contribute to the book.

Scobie said today that "many" friends gave them insight even though they did not interview the couple – "a lens to the couple through their friends and their circle of aides".

Palace insiders have described the book as a "score settling" after Harry and Meghan left the royal family for living in Los Angeles – after suddenly announcing their intentions in January, which "hurt" the queen.

The royal expert Penny Junor, author of Prince Harry: Brother, Soldier, Son, Husband, told MailOnline: "The writers certainly have some extraordinarily personal and private details about Harry and Meghan, but the couple have said they are not directly involved have spoken to them and we must take their word for it.

“What seems absolutely clear, however, is that they worked together. If not, they would have made a big fuss about this book. I suspect they wanted to know their story and how they felt about how they were treated in public and they did so through friends who sound like they are very well and carefully informed. & # 39;

Places in the book that are full of praise include:

“Her love story caught on in Africa – where Meghan stretched her body into the perfect warrior pose on the last day of an incredible three-week stay. On this trip to a modern mansion in Livingstone, Zambia, less than ten miles upriver from Victoria Falls, she quietly removed her surroundings from the grounds of her last home. The rising sun flooded their makeshift yoga garden while an exotic flock of birds that looked like they had just dipped their tails in pots of brightly colored paint serenaded them. & # 39;

That morning, the controversial biography of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was released, finally released after weeks of revelations about the couple's departure from the royal family and rift with Prince William and Kate.

The book offers new insights into Harry's argument with William and how the couple felt "thrown under the bus" after the disagreements began when the Prince's older brother referred to Meghan as "that girl" and raised concerns that he might hurry Romance.

The authors say Harry "felt that people who work with his brother put things out to make William look good, even if it meant throwing Harry under the bus."

Excerpts from the book have already revealed many inside details about the couple's exit from the royal family, including how the couple considered going direct against the "ruined" queen over Megxit after returning from Canada in January .

Sources close to the couple also claim in the book that royal aides feared Meghan and Harry's popularity dwarfed that of the royal family themselves – and that the couple were jealous that William and Kate got the best roles and "didn't felt supported "the royal.

New revelations in the book include:

  • Meghan Markle was so closely connected to Prince Charles that she thinks he is her "second father".
  • Meghan has often been seen carrying files full of research on the Royal Protocol so she wouldn't go wrong.
  • The Queen gave Meghan a royal masterclass on record, describing Meghan as "very smart and good";
  • Harry felt thrown under the bus by aides who worked for his brother Prince William.
  • Royal courtiers feared that the brother's quarrel "could mean the end of the monarchy";
  • Meghan left the UK "emotionally wounded and exhausted" after her last frosty incident with William and Kate.
  • Russian hackers stole hundreds of their personal photos in 2018 after gaining access to an online account.

The book deals with the rift between Prince William and Prince Harry, and states that the altercation caused high-ranking royal courtiers to fear the future of the monarchy.

The Queen is said to have been "concerned" after the brothers dropped out, while Harry believed he and Meghan were "thrown under the bus" to protect other family members.

A courtier told Finding Freedom writers that a crisis meeting was held in 2019 to "protect the monarchy".

Harry had quarreled with his brother after raising concerns about speeding up his romance with Meghan.

The book states that Harry considered the remark "snobbish" and that relations between the once inseparable brothers deteriorated when Harry and Meghan moved out of Kensington Palace and split up the so-called "Fab Four" by forming their own team around to market the SussexRoyal brand.

The authors said courtiers realized that if the brothers were at war, the monarchy might not survive in war.

One courtier was quoted as saying, “It's no secret, the future of this monarchy depends entirely on the four people currently in Kensington Palace. Public popularity is only with them. . . If he (the Prince of Wales) becomes king, it only lasts if the four are not at war. We can't have them in war. & # 39;

A source told the authors: 'Harry was upset that it was being played so publicly and that so much of the information reported was inaccurate.

Omid Scobie, author of Finding Freedom, says Meghan was the victim of "racist and sexist tropes" in Britain and blames the monarchy for the Megxit dispute because royals refused to accept the Sussexes' demands

The Duchess of Sussex was the victim of "racist and sexist tropes" in Britain from commentators and royal courtiers resistant to change, the author of the controversial new biography Finding Freedom claimed today.

Omid Scobie's book was finally published today after weeks of revelations from his pages telling Harry and Meghan's side of the Megxit story.

It offers very personal insight – although Scobie and co-writer Carolyn Durand claim they didn't interview Harry and Meghan and the couple didn't work together.

However, they say that "many" friends have given them details for the book and that each revelation is corroborated by at least two sources.

Scobie said the writers had "had a lens to the couple through their friends and aides" and reported on the couple's private and public engagements.

Scobie and Durand have also blamed the monarchy for the bitterness of the Megxit range. They said it was the institution's resistance to change and a refusal to accept Harry and Meghan's demands that led to the argument over their departure from royal duties.

Scobie told BBC Radio 4's Today show that he said Harry and Meghan had "clearly tried their best to make it work" before Megxit took place in March.

He added, “They went so far as to come up with a possible roadmap for governing their roles in the future, and in the end it was the institution that turned against them and told them what they presented was just not an option.

"And so this is a couple that really wanted it to work, but ultimately I think the royal institution building just isn't designed for change at this dramatic level."

Scobie also claimed Meghan was the subject of a short story she called "Duchess Difficult" amid reports of her disagreement with palace staff.

Adjutants who left the palace in the months following the royal wedding included communications expert Samantha & # 39; the Panther & # 39; Cohen and assistant Melissa Toubati.

The book claimed the couple became "dissatisfied" with Toubati and "not disappointed when she left", despite a royal aide praising them as "extremely talented."

And it is alleged that the couple were forced to let go of their son Archie's night nurse during her second shift "for unprofessionalism" without going into further details.

Older helpers are also said to have been unimpressed by Meghan's lavish baby shower in February 2019 in New York. She looked like the Duchess 'carefully staged paparazzi walks with big black sunglasses from her hotel to her car and a laundry list of inside party details'.

Scobie also told ITV's Lorraine that the comment on Meghan "used every kind of sexist and racist trope that we attach color to successful women and women."

"There had been moments when he felt that people who worked with his brother had put things out to make William look good, even if it meant throwing Harry under the bus.

"It was a confusing time and his head was all over the place – he didn't know who or what to believe, and he and William didn't talk enough either, which made things worse."

The dispute culminated in the Sussexes' last public engagement in March 2019 before they officially resigned from their royal duties.

The book claims that Harry and Meghan greeted William and Kate with smiles, but claims that the Cambridges "barely recognized" them.

And the couple left the service "hurt" that they had been disqualified from the official service rules, which they considered a nudge.

The book tells how Meghan developed such a close relationship with Prince Charles that she considers him her "second father".

She is said to have found her father-in-law to be "supportive and loving" from the moment she was introduced to him. A source told the authors that Meghan sees Charles not as a father-in-law but as a "second father".

Charles had walked Meghan down the aisle at her wedding in Windsor when her own father, Thomas Markle, was forced to retire for health reasons.

He had also embarrassed the soon-to-be married couple by working with a photo agency on a series of staged shots, creating a father and daughter gap.

The book states that Charles was equally in love with Meghan, whom a friend of the prince described as "a cheeky, confident, handsome American."

The authors write: "Meghan had reasons of her own for admiring her father-in-law, who moved her poignantly down the aisle when her own father abandoned her."

At the time, a confidante said Meghan had "found in Charles such a supportive and loving father who has really changed her life for the better."

According to the source, not a father-in-law, but a "second father".

A friend of Charles said the Prince of Wales gave Meghan a real shine. She is a cheeky, confident, beautiful American. He likes very strong, confident women.

"She's smart and confident, and I can see why they became friends very quickly."

Charles liked Meghan's energy. "The Prince of Wales has always loved people in the arts, like Emma Thompson, who he's been friends with for years," said another source.

The book states that Meghan had a close friendship with Camilla and developed a close relationship with the Queen with the former actress who wanted to know all about royal life.

They had their first joint engagement on June 14, 2018 while on a trip to Chester with a source who told the writers that the Queen had confidence in Meghan as she is "very smart and good at understanding what is required" .

Of visiting writers Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, he wrote: "The Queen has been wonderful, warm and generous to the new Duchess," said a source close to Her Majesty.

"She made sure Meghan knew what was going on and she felt very comfortable because it was her first trip." Before they got off the train, the Queen gave Meghan a delicate pair of pearl and diamond earrings.

Meghan, an avid learner who studied all about royal protocol, was often seen carrying folders full of research so she wouldn't go wrong. She took her new role incredibly seriously. This day was different, however; She has received a royal master class in training from the Queen herself. & # 39;

Meghan left the royal family "emotionally wounded" after frosty recent encounter with William and Kate

Another revelation in the book is that the Duchess of Sussex burst into tears after the "raw emotion" of leaving the royal family returned home at one of her latest engagements after a frosty last encounter with Prince William and Kate.

The authors of & # 39; Finding Freedom & # 39; revealed that tears flowed as Meghan said goodbye to close members of her support team after Harry came to see her at Buckingham Palace after a presentation ceremony.

It was her penultimate royal engagement and Meghan had met with 22 students who had received scholarships from the Association of Commonwealth Universities. Meghan was the patroness after replacing the Queen in 2019.

After the ceremony, Prince Harry slipped quietly into Room 1884 – where the Queen often receives her most important visitors – to see his wife.

His demeanor and the reality that & # 39; Megxit & # 39; took place, led according to the authors to the fact that all pent-up emotions of Meghan came to light.

The authors wrote: “After the meeting, it was time to transfer to the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey. At that moment, Harry quietly slipped through the door of the 1844 room to say hello, and reality – and emotions – finally set in

Meghan turned and hugged the last remaining people in the room, including an author of this book. Since the representation room was almost empty except for a few familiar faces, the tears that the Duchess had held back could flow freely.

She hugged some of the dedicated team members whose tireless efforts to promote the couple's work, launch landmark projects, and manage the almost daily crises caused by the tabloids had abruptly ended. "I can't believe that's it," she said, hugging one of the young helpers with whom she had grown close.

“Although Team Sussex was a much smaller operation than the more sophisticated offices at Clarence House and Kensington Palace, they had become like family within a short year of its inception.

At the end of the engagement, Harry joined Meghan and gave her a hug before quickly changing clothes for the Commonwealth Service. "The last hat for a while, guys!" Meghan said with a smile, her tears wiping away now. & # 39;

In the Commonwealth Service, the frosty relationship between brothers William and Harry and their wives has been exposed.

Kate was told by the writers that she avoided eye contact with Meghan while her husband just nodded Harry.

After the service, Meghan booked the first flight to Canada and left the UK "emotionally hurt and exhausted".

Harry and Meghan snuggled into a sofa and watched the TV series "Game of Thrones" while their romance blossomed

The couple also enjoyed watching the hugely popular crime drama "Breaking Bad" and Disney films such as "The Lion King".

The royal couple's visual tastes were revealed in the highly anticipated biography & # 39; Finding Freedom & # 39; revealed that will be released today.

The writers said the couple spent much of their time in Harry's humble living room watching TV in the early days of their romance.

They said they would show up "from time to time" to visit a nearby movie theater in Notting Hill and then have a bite to eat.

The authors write: “London was starting to feel at home. For many nights, she and Harry curled up in his humble living room and watched TV (Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad were favorites).

'They had the same taste in movies too. Disney fans loved watching movies like Moana and The Lion King.

& # 39; And thanks to the arrival of the awards season in the US, Meghan was also in possession of a batch of screeners sent out to voters and SAG-AFTRA members. Since Meghan was a member, the two could see the best cinema of the year from the comfort of their own home.

From time to time they would pop up and visit the Notting Hill Cinema, the Electric Cinema, to see hidden characters or grab a bite to eat.

They had their tried and true venues, including Soho House, where they first met, and the Sands End, a rustic-style gastropub in Fulham owned by Mark Dyer. The former Welsh Guards officer who accompanied Harry on his year abroad had always been there to offer advice and assistance to the prince. & # 39;

The book reveals that in London, Meghan was able to fly under the radar and go on regular shopping trips to Whole Foods on Kensington High Street in west London.

The book reveals that in London, Meghan was able to fly under the radar and go on regular shopping trips to Whole Foods on Kensington High Street in west London.

The couple had flown out to Harry's close friend Thomas Inskip's wedding and had purposely booked a secluded room at the Round Hill Hotel in Montego Bay.

As they hugged on the balcony, a photographer was able to take his picture – although Harry was assured that all 110 acres of the resort would be closed to the public.

Meghan was also photographed in her tiny swimsuits frolicking in the ocean with the prince, according to the book.

Harry was apoplectic with anger and told the palace assistants to make sure the photos were never published.

"Do whatever needs to be done," the book says.

The authors continue: “ In her bedroom at the villa, Harry was furious and screaming while Meghan was worried.
