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 realized 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 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
‘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.
