Meghan ‘gave Harry tools to leave palace’ after enjoying ‘freebies’, says expert

A royal insider has claimed that Meghan Markle 'enjoyed freebies' from designer brands even when a part of the firm.

Tina Brown's explosive book 'The Palace Papers: Inside The House Of Windsor – The Truth And The Turmoil', explains that Meghan would use her now-defunct blog, The Tig, as a way of getting luxury goods for free.

The author and close friend of Princess Diana also wrote about how the Duchess gave Harry 'the tools' to leave the Royal Family once and for all.

Journalist Tina Brown's The Palace Papers: Inside the House of Windsor, the Truth and the Turmoil was two years in the making and features interviews and information from more than 120 insiders and sources.

In an interview with The Washington Post to promote the explosive new book, Ms Brown said: "Meghan couldn't resist everything that was on offer on the celebrity buffet."

The author explained: "She won a reputation among the marketers of luxury brands of being warmly interested in receiving bags of designer swag."

She added: "They wanted to be able to have a commercial arm to their activities. Meghan certainly saw deals that were there to be made that they had to leave on the table because they were royals."

Speaking about their decision to leave the family, Brown said: "I really think Harry wanted out, himself. Meghan gave Harry the tools to leave.

"She understood the world of agents and deals. I mean this wasn’t Harry’s world, but suddenly he had in Meghan a very worldly strategist who he decided to trust above all the other advisors."

One major part of the book details exactly how Prince Harry and Meghan "completely underestimated" life outside of The Firm.

In the interview, Ms Brown explained: "I think they both complete underestimate what it was going to be like without the Palace platform.

"However much they hated, and I think they really did, the constraints and the pettiness, essentially they conceived, of the Palace and the advisors – trying doing it without the Palace advisors, right?"

"Because what the Palace does, of course, it has an amazing convening power, there's no one who won't take a phone call from Buckingham Palace or Kensington Palace, they've got a huge convening power.

"Every invitation in the world comes through that conduit and private secretaries can just sift and say what about appearing this, or why don't you do this?"
