Meghan Was 'Hysterical' After Palace Reacted to Her Vanity Fair Cover

Meghan Markle became “hysterical” after her Vanity Fair cover story focused mainly on her relationship with Prince Harry, a new book claims.

The Duchess of Sussex called her PR team in a panic because the piece – headlined Wild About Harry – angered Buckingham Palace and failed to focus enough on her activism and philanthropy, according to Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors.

The book, by investigative author Tom Bower, says that Meghan and her LA publicists Sunshine Sachs were “ecstatic” when, after “years of struggle to get Meghan noticed”, they landed the interview for the magazine’s September 2017 edition.

But the ecstasy turned to disappointment after Buckingham Palace received pre-publication copies of the magazine in early September, Bower claims. Its front cover featured a photograph of the duchess alongside the headline “She’s Just Wild About Harry”.

Bower writes that Harry, wary after interviews given in the past by his mum Princess Diana and Sarah Ferguson had caused controversy, was keen for Meghan to avoid sensitive topics like Donald Trump, race, their relationship and particularly himself.

The book claims that Vanity Fair’s long-serving contributing editor Sam Kashner asked Meghan about Harry during the interview but hadn’t expected an answer. It states he was “quietly elated” when Meghan, who at this point was secretly engaged to the prince, responded: “We’re a couple. We’re in love.

“I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time. This is for us. It’s part of what makes it so special, that it’s just ours. But we’re happy. Personally, I love a great love story.”

The interview sparked sensational reactions across the world. In his book, which has been serialized in The Sun and The Times, Bower says that Buckingham Palace was taken by surprise by “Meghan’s unprecedented brazenness”.

Bower’s book says that “within hours”, Meghan had called her PR firm’s bosses demanding answers. He writes: “Hysterically, she described Buckingham Palace’s fury at ‘Wild About Harry’. Sunshine Sachs, said Meghan, should have ensured that her comments about Harry were removed. Why wasn’t the focus on her philanthropy and activism?
