In “Courtiers: the Hidden Power Behind the Crown,” Valentine Low talks at length about the relationship between Meghan Markle and the prince harry. An excerpt from the book published by the British newspaper The Times, to which Low is a contributor, discusses Harry’s attempts to shield Meghan from public scrutiny once their relationship was made public..
According to Low, Meghan was willing to break off their relationship if he didn’t make it official. “A source said: ‘She was saying, ‘If you don’t release a statement confirming I’m your girlfriend, I’m going to break up with you.'” Harry was freaking out.
Another source quoted said: “He was freaking out.” Harry, the book to be published Oct. 6 reads, turned to Jason Knauf, “the brilliant communications secretary of the Cambridges and Prince Harry.”
It reads: “The prince demanded that she release a statement confirming that Meghan was his girlfriend and condemning the racist and sexist undertones of some of the media.. Meghan wanted public validation that this was a serious relationship. She was convinced that the palace was unwilling to protect her from media intrusion. She told Harry’s staff: ‘I know how the palace works. I know how this is going to play out. You don’t care about the girlfriend.
Thus began the rocky relationship of Knauf, and in general of the palace team, with Meghan. This, however, was only the beginning. “Meghan was different to other royal brides. She had her own opinions of hers and let people know what hers were… The stakes were high with Meghan too. The palace knew it could not afford to repeat the mistakes that were made with Princess Diana.. Before the wedding, Meghan had a meeting with Miguel Head, William’s private secretary, who told her that the palace would do everything to help.”
Security has always been one of the points of conflict. “One of the early issues was security. In the immediate aftermath of her arrival in London, there was no easy mechanism in place to provide Meghan with full-time police protection, especially at a time when the palace was trying to lower the level of security. provided to members of the royal family”.
