Prince Harry ‘feared he would become a has-been once his nephew George turned 18’

According to a new book, the Duke of Sussex was “fixed” on his cousin Prince George turning 18.

It is alleged that before meeting Meghan, Harry had a ‘long-held’ fear that he would be an ‘too-fled’.

This apparently compounded the frustration he felt when assistants advised him against things he wanted to do separately from William and Kate, the book says.

Excerpts from Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown by Valentine Low were published last night by The Times.

The book also makes claims about Meghan’s treatment of staff. The Duchess of Sussex is said to have once strongly criticized a plan drawn up by a young female employee in front of colleagues.

William later tried to comfort the unnamed employee by saying she was doing a good job and the woman burst into tears.

After Meghan and Harry got married, Samantha Cohen, the Queen’s former assistant private secretary, joined their team as their interim private secretary.

The book cites a source who says she too was “bullied” and that nothing she did was ever good enough for the couple.

Extracts claim that a source once said: ‘Sam [Cohen] always made it clear that it was like working for some teenagers. They were impossible and pushed her to the limit. She was miserable.’

The Duchess’s lawyers denied in 2021 that Ms Cohen had been bullied, saying the couple were always grateful for her support and dedication.

They have also long described such allegations as “extremely inaccurate” and that the Duchess has “absolutely denied” having bullied anyone.

While a Buckingham Palace study concluded it would assess how it would treat bullying complaints, it didn’t say the Duchess had actually bullied anyone.

Poll shows increasing support for monarchy

Support for the monarchy has increased after the Queen’s funeral, a poll shows.

Some 47 percent believe Britain will be worse if it is abolished, according to a survey of 1,000 adults – compared to 42 percent who said the same in June.

Just 22 percent said removing the monarchy would improve the UK, a slight drop from 23 percent. The poll also found that 56 percent still expect the monarchy to last at least another 50 years, up from 45 percent in March this year.

The proportion that said Charles III will be a good king has risen from 49 percent to 61 percent, closer to the support level for Prince William, who 72 percent expect to do well in the role when the time comes.

Kelly Beaver, chief executive of Ipsos, who conducted the survey, said: “King Charles begins his reign with the majority of Britons optimistic that he will become a good king and an increasing belief in the longevity of the monarchy.”

The book also tells of Meghan’s clashes with her personal assistant Melissa Touabti over free gifts, including clothes, jewelry and candles, that some businesses sent to the Duchess.

Ms. Touabti, who left the palace just six months after taking office, followed a rule that members of the royal family are not allowed to accept gifts from commercial organizations, but the book claims her approach “didn’t sit well with Meghan.”

The book will be published by Headline Books on October 6.

In June, Buckingham Palace effectively buried a report on allegations of bullying by the Duchess of Sussex.

Royal aides admitted for the first time that the findings would never be made public.

A source told the Daily Mail at the time: “People suspected it was going to be buried, and now it looks like it is.”

The Daily Mail understands that even those who took part in the investigation have not been told what the outcome will be.

Palace officials only wanted to confirm that their investigation had been completed and that “recommendations about our policies and procedures” had been implemented.

Royal officials announced in March last year that they were launching an investigation into claims that Meghan’s “disparaging” behavior while a working member of the royal family drove two female personal assistants from the household and “undermined the trust of a third.”

Staff are said to have been left in tears and feeling ‘traumatised’ – some compared their condition to post-traumatic stress.

The Royal Family hired an outside law firm, privately paid by the family, to investigate the claims in a move that some predicted would increase tensions between Harry and Meghan and “the institution.”

The allegations have always been vigorously denied by the Duchess, whose lawyers at the time described them as a “calculated smear campaign.”

Last year, a spokesman for the palace made it clear that the details of the allegations — which were brought to the attention of senior domestic staff at the time by Harry and Meghan’s concerned press secretary, Jason Knauf — would not be investigated.

But they said they would investigate how the “historical allegations of bullying” were being handled by officials and whether changes should be made to their HR policies and procedures as a result.

A spokesperson confirmed that “if” those findings were made public, they would be included in this year’s Sovereign Grant report – the official annual overview of the royals’ public finances.

But when he announced the report yesterday, the master of the Privy Purse, Sir Michael Stevens, said of the investigation: ‘There is nothing in the report about this.

Did Harry turn down dinner because of the Duchess’s exclusion?

By David Wilkes

Prince Harry ‘refused’ to dine with his father and brother after Meghan was banned from the family in Balmoral on the day the Queen died, it was claimed today.

The Duke of Sussex, 38, was reportedly left ‘furious’ after King Charles called to tell him it was ‘inappropriate’ for Meghan, 41, to accompany him to the Scottish estate on September 8.

William took an RAF flight to Scotland with their uncles Andrew and Edward. But Harry would have missed it because he was “so busy getting Meghan to Balmoral and rowing with his family.”

When told to make his own travel arrangements, he landed at Aberdeen airport without the Duchess of Sussex minutes after the Queen’s death was announced to the world.

There was never any suggestion that Kate would join William, but the Sussexes would have announced that morning that Meghan and Harry were on their way – but by noon the plan had changed.

Today, The Sun reported that Harry had been invited to dine at Birkhall, his father’s home on the Balmoral Estate, with the King, William and Camilla, Queen Consort on the night of the Queen’s death. But he would instead have stayed at Balmoral Castle with the Earl and Countess of Wessex and the Duke of York.

A source told the paper: ‘Charles has an open invitation for Harry to dine with him when he is in the country. But Harry was so furious that he refused to eat with his father and brother.

“And he left Balmoral at the earliest opportunity to catch the first commercial flight back to London.”
