To welcome in 2020, Buckingham Palace released an image of Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince George. While the image shows those directly in line to the British throne, a royal author has claimed the picture made Harry and Meghan question their position in the Firm.
Writing in his unauthorised biography, Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, Andrew Morton claimed: “The royal couple suspected that the entire institution was conspiring against them.
“As they saw it, the evidence was all around them.
“The unspoken code was straightforward: the future of the monarchy was assured, with or without Meghan and Harry.”
Days after the picture was released, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they would be stepping back from royal duties.
