Meghan Markle has been cruelly branded a “fame addict” in a new tell-all royal book by controversial royal author Lady Colin Campbell.
The socialite and TV personality, 70, bitterly blasts the former actress, 38, as an “operator” who has had a “series of men”.
The book, titled Meghan and Harry: The Real Story, also claims the Duchess of Sussex has ambitions to run for President of the United States.
A rather unflattering excerpt from the book says: “Meghan’s whole life is an act” and claims Harry “was desperate to meet someone”… “he’s not the swiftest”… “he’s a prop” and “pathetic.”
Lady Colin adds of Meghan: “This person is no more suited to royal life than Angelina Jolie would be to competitive boxing.
“She has inflated herself beyond natural entitlement. Since she always wanted to be a star, she has this propensity for exaggeration.
“As for Harry, he should have been instructive. This nonsense that she didn’t at first know so much about him… I mean, please.
“She’d looked him up in books. And she pats him like, ‘good boy.’ She even answers for him.”
The controversial book also claims the “royal rift” between the Sussexes and the family began just four days after the royal wedding, at Prince Charles’ 70th birthday garden party.
Lady Colin told the Daily Star: “I knew the tremendous amount of hope the Royal Family invested in Meghan being a success.
“Hundreds of millions of people of colour were rooting for Meghan, I was rooting for Meghan, being a Jamaican, I was emotionally invested in Meghan’s success.
“Virtually everybody I know, including my Royal friends, the wider aristocracy, wanted Meghan to be a success.
“But it quickly became apparent the ride may not be as smooth as everybody had hoped it would be, and it would not be quite as positive as everybody had hoped it would be.”
When asked what occured at the garden party, Lady Colin teased: “I can’t repeat it exactly, it’s in the book, but what I can say is, something happened at the very first garden party at Buckingham Palace.”
As reported by Page Six, Lady Campbell, who is best known for her 1992 book, Diana in Private: The Princess Nobody and for being on ITV’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, said she has experienced a lot of scandals in her circles.
She revealed: “I know the lot. The royals. The courtiers. They’re friends.
“I’ve attended their parties. Been to their homes.
“And I’ve taken care to be positive and even handed, although Meghan’s thrown the whole British family under the bus.”
Publisher Dynasty Press said in a statement: “The fall from popular grace of the previously adulated brother of the heir to the British throne as a consequence of his marriage to a beautiful and dynamic Hollywood starlet of colour makes for fascinating reading in bestselling royal author Lady Colin Campbell’s balanced account.”
The book is due to be published on June 25.
