Meghan Markle was prone to ‘unpredictable’ outbursts, explosive biography claims

Meghan Markle is painted as explosive, unpredictable and manipulative in a scathing new biography about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex

Tom Bower, author of Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors, claims the Duchess of Sussex ‘reduced people to tears with her passive aggressive tone’ and demanded first-class flights and luxury accommodation for business trips prior to meeting Prince Harry

The author, who has admitted his sources were people who ‘don’t like’ Meghan, quotes one business associate who described the then actress as ‘one of the most unpleasant people he had ever dealt with’.

Bower has admitted he has sourced much of his information for the book from people who don’t like Meghan because she had warned the people closest to her not to speak to him.

He told Good Morning Britain on Thursday: ‘She made it pretty clear to all her friends and people who work for her not to talk to me, so it was quite an uphill struggle but I got enough people to speak to me, more than enough, I got about 80 people.’

Asked how the book can be considered an unbiased account if the people interviewed already don’t like Meghan, the author replied: ‘Because I sifted through, I never put in stuff that isn’t true and can’t be checked.’

Revenge, published today, recounts a visit to London in 2016 in which Meghan allegedly ‘went ballistic’ after being booked into a five-star hotel with a caged parrot on display. 

Meghan, then an actress on US legal drama Suits, was in the city to discuss a new book based on her popular lifestyle blog The Tig. 

It was said that her talent agency had arranged ‘with difficulty’ free accommodation for Meghan in a five-star hotel, in exchange for an appearance in the hotel’s magazine and social media posts.

But en route to her room, the book claims Meghan passed a parrot in a cage and refused to stay. 

Meghan checked out of the hotel and the agency made a new reservation at the Soho Hotel.

Shortly afterwards Meghan is said to have joined her literary agent for a lunch meeting about proposed The Tig book, titled Think Beautiful. 

Bower writes: ‘Over the previous months, many at the agency had become wary of their client. They thought Meghan’s mood was unpredictable.

‘Regularly she called the agency to demand they make reservations at restaurants or events in anticipation of her arrival in London. Inevitably, she would cancel or change her requirements.’

Bower writes that Meghan proceeded to ‘direct her venom’ at the agent because she was unhappy with his decision to include a chapter about sexual attraction in her book. 

‘She seemed to delight in humiliating people,’ the book continues. 

The literary agent reportedly described Meghan as ‘one of the most unpleasant people we’ve ever dealt with’. 

A separate anecdote claims the then actress demanded first class flights and luxury accommodation after being booked on a film shoot in London in 2015.

One of her co-stars on the film described Meghan as ‘high-maintenance’. 

Meghan DID make Kate cry during bridesmaids dress row: Duchess ‘burst into tears’ after bride ‘compared Charlotte to BFF Jessica Mulroney’s daughter’ and ‘wouldn’t change her dress to fit’ bombshell biography claims 

By Harriet Johnston for MailOnline

Kate Middleton ‘burst into tears’ after Meghan Markle ‘compared Princess Charlotte unfavourably to her best friend Jessica Mulroney’s daughter’ during a bridesmaid fitting ahead of the royal wedding,  a bombshell biography has claimed. 

In his new book Revenge, Tom Bower claims unnamed sources told him the Duchess of Cambridge, 40, and Duchess of Sussex, 40, disagreed over the length of Princess Charlotte‘s hemline and the fit of her dress, as well as whether the bridesmaids ‘should wear tights’ at the wedding.

He also claimed Meghan’s ‘insistence’ was ‘supported’ by her former BFF and mother of another bridesmaid Jessica Mulroney, adding: ‘Some would say that Meghan compared Ivy favourably against Charlotte.’

The alleged version of events are the latest in a long line of claims about the disagreement. Early reports in 2018 claimed Meghan who had made Kate cry during a row over bridesmaids’ dresses.

The Duchess of Sussex later disagreed in her bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview, claiming it was the other way around and adding: ‘She (Kate) was upset about something, but she owned it, and she apologised. And she brought me flowers’.

Meghan also said: ‘It wasn’t a confrontation, and I actually think it’s… I don’t think it’s fair to her to get into the details of that, because she apologised.

‘What was hard to get over was being blamed for something that not only I didn’t do but that happened to me.

‘And the people who were part of our wedding were going to our comms team and saying: ‘I know this didn’t happen. I don’t have to tell them what actually happened’.’

However in his book, Tom goes on to write unnamed sources told him the two continued to disagree. 

Speaking on Good Morning Britain today, he acknowledged all his sources were people who don’t like Meghan, confessing: ‘She made it pretty clear to all her friends and people who work for her not to talk to me, so it was quite an uphill struggle but I got enough people to speak to me, more than enough, I got about 80 people.’

However he insisted that the biography was unbiased, adding: ‘I sifted through, I never put in stuff that isn’t true and can’t be checked.’

In the book, Bower also said Kate had been ‘tired’ following the birth of her son Prince Louis in the run-up to the wedding, adding she was ‘irritated by complaints of Meghan bullying her staff.’

He wrote that one staff member said the Duchess of Sussex showed ‘little sympathy for those outside her circle.’

Writing in the biography, Tom Bower said the Duchess of Cambridge was ‘too fatigued to cope’ with a disagreement over whether bridesmaids should wear tights, however ultimately felt they should in order to follow protocol. 

However he claimed: ‘Meghan’s insistence was supported by Jessica, the mother of Ivy.’

The disagreement was then followed by a second argument ‘about the length of Charlotte’s hem – Kate felt it was too short and anyway did not fit.’

However Bower claims the Duchess of Sussex ‘wouldn’t compromise’ – and Kate became upset, feeling as though complaints by staff about Meghan’s behaviour had been confirmed.

November 2018 – The Telegraph’s royal editor Camilla Tominey wrote she had ‘spoken to two separate sources who claim Kate was left in tears following a bridesmaids dress fitting for Princess Charlotte’.

May 2020 – Tatler reports the two argued over protocol around young bridesmaids’ tights

March 2021 – Meghan confirms there was a disagreement in her bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview but says the Duchess of Cambridge actually made her cry. 

Royal expert Katie Nicholl says Kate ‘never wanted’ reports of a rift to come out in the press and has found the situation ‘mortifying’   

The infamous row with Prince William’s wife made headlines around the world after a supposed falling out over dresses for the flower girls. 

Pictures from the wedding at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, appear to show the six bridesmaids with bare legs, while photographs from Prince William and Kate’s wedding in April 2011 show bridesmaids wearing tights. 

It was claimed in November 2018 that Meghan had reduced Kate to tears over Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid’s dress.

The Daily Telegraph reported that two sources said the Duchess of Cambridge was crying after a dress fitting with Charlotte.

‘Kate had only just given birth to Prince Louis and was feeling quite emotional,’ a source claimed.

However Meghan would later claim in her interview with Oprah Winfrey that the Duchess of Cambridge made her cry.

Oprah asked Meghan: ‘Was there a situation where she (Kate) might have cried? Or she could have cried?’

But the Duchess of Sussex replied: ‘No, no. The reverse happened.

‘And I don’t say that to be disparaging to anyone, because it was a really hard week of the wedding.

‘And she was upset about something, but she owned it, and she apologised.

‘And she brought me flowers and a note, apologising. And she did what I would do if I knew that I hurt someone, right, to just take accountability for it.’

Meghan added that it was ‘shocking’ that the ‘reverse of that would be out in the world’.

She continued: ‘A few days before the wedding, she was upset about something pertaining – yes, the issue was correct – about flower girl dresses, and it made me cry, and it really hurt my feelings.

‘And I thought, in the context of everything else that was going on in those days leading to the wedding, that it didn’t make sense to not be just doing whatever everyone else was doing, which was trying to be supportive, knowing what was going on with my dad and whatnot.’

Meghan also said: ‘It wasn’t a confrontation, and I actually think it’s… I don’t think it’s fair to her to get into the details of that, because she apologised.

‘What was hard to get over was being blamed for something that not only I didn’t do but that happened to me.

‘And the people who were part of our wedding were going to our comms team and saying: ‘I know this didn’t happen. I don’t have to tell them what actually happened’.’

Meghan also said reports she had reduced the Duchess of Cambridge to tears were a ‘turning point.

The Duchess said ‘everyone in the institution knew that wasn’t true’ and she hoped Kate ‘would have wanted that to be corrected’, adding ‘she is a good person’.    

Royal expert Katie Nicholl previously claimed Kate found the Oprah revelations ‘mortifying’.

Katie noted how you ‘never hear’ about the Duchess falling out with anyone because she is ‘very careful with how she treats others.’

Speaking to OK! magazine, Katie explained: ‘Kate has never wanted any suggestion of a rift with Meghan to come out in the press, so for this story to be circulating is very hard.’ 

Katie added there are ‘different versions’ of the story and claimed that Prince Harry and Meghan know Kate is ‘not in a position to respond’. 

‘From what I hear, there are different versions of the bridesmaid story, not just the one Meghan discussed,’ the royal expert told the publication. 

‘Kate felt it was all sorted, so to have it brought up again was mortifying. Kate is not in a position to respond and Meghan and Harry know that.

The royal expert went on to claim that Kate has been left ‘saddened, disappointed and hurt’ in the wake of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.  

‘Until she met Harry people hadn’t heard of her’: Biographer Tom Bower claims Meghan married Prince Harry to become famous – saying Suits wasn’t that popular

ByEllen Coughlan For Mailonline 

The author of a new bombshell royal biography today claimed Meghan married Prince Harry to become famous – saying ‘Suits wasn’t that popular’.  

Tom Bower, author of a new insider’s account of the royal couple titled Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors, said the Duchess of Sussex ‘thought the royal family would be like Hollywood.’

Speaking to Ben Shephard and Charlotte Hawkins on Good Morning Britain he claimed that once Meghan realised the royal family was ‘lots of work and little reward’, she didn’t like it anymore.

The author said: ‘It’s wrong to say she was a famous actress, she wasn’t, she was a third rate actress, Suits was only watched by a million people.’ 

During the interview, the author admitted that many of his sources were people who don’t like Meghan because she’d warned her nearest and dearest her not to speak to him.

Host Ben said to Tom: ‘She was a very famous actress. She had a high profile in Hollywood and Suits is a series that was streamed all over the world, so people knew who she was.’ 

Tom disagreed with the host, referring to Meghan’s cover story with Vanity Fair while she was dating Prince Harry. 

‘Well we wont argue but I disagree with you,’ he said. ‘The point is, until she met Harry, even Graydon Carter the editor of Vanity Fair who commissioned the article never heard of her and never heard of Suits.

‘He was just told that anyone who marries Harry is going to be famous and she indeed was.’

‘She said to her father “I want to be famous, I want to walk down the red carpet” and marrying Harry she achieved exactly that ambition.’

The biographer went on to say he believes the royal family tried very hard to accommodate Meghan and include her in the family.

He claimed: ‘People were very excited by the fact that there was a mixed race girl coming’, adding: ‘It was going to be a great development for the royal family.’ 

However, he said ‘it went wrong’ and why it went wrong he said he has ‘explained fully’ in his new book.

Tom claimed the Duchess had told her father she 'wanted to walk down red carpets' and marrying Harry allowed her to 'achieve that ambition' (pictured, at the Lion King premiere in London in 2019)

‘Both sides are to blame but I believe the blame lies mostly with Meghan, who I don’t think understood the monarchy,’ he claimed. 

The author went on to admit he got a lot of his information for the book from people who don’t like Meghan because she had warned the people closest to her not to speak to him.

He said: ‘She made it pretty clear to all her friends and people who work for her not to talk to me, so it was quite an uphill struggle but I got enough people to speak to me, more than enough, I got about 80 people.’

To which Ben asked how the book is going to be an unbiased account if we know the people interviewed already don’t like Meghan. 

The author said: ‘Because I sifted through, I never put in stuff that isn’t true and can’t be checked.

‘You know I have some admiration for Meghan she succeeded quite well in her life with her ambitions and I was able to balance it all.’

The author said no lawsuits from the Royal couple’s legal team have been issued yet, but Bower is no stranger to visiting court over his controversial biographies.

Two unauthorised biographies of Robert Maxwell, father of convicted British convicted sex offender and former socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, landed Bower in hot legal water — but ultimately won the raft of cases thrown at him.  

The author has penned original accounts of business tycoons including Richard Branson, Conrad Black and Bernie Ecclestone — but in his latest he has gone after the Sussexes. 

The book is scheduled for release on July 21.
