Prince Harry says Invictus Games will be ‘more competitive’
Meghan Markle angered Buckingham Palace after she took up the offer to feature on the front page of Vanity Fair and agreed to discuss her blossoming relationship with Prince Harry, a royal author claimed.
The cover, which featured a headshot of the now-Duchess of Sussex, came with the caption ‘Wild About Harry”.
In the unprecedented interview, which Meghan gave mere months before the engagement was announced, she opened up about their “great love story” and how their relationship changed once they became public.
She said: “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.

“I can tell you that at the end of the day, I think it’s really simple. We’re two people who are really happy and in love.”
Meghan added: “We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people’s perception.
“Nothing about me changed. I’m still the same person that I am, and I’ve never defined myself by my relationship.”
Despite the romantic nature of the comments, author Tom Bower has since claimed the Palace felt blindsided by the interview.
No other possible royal bride had ever sat down for interviews before the official engagement.
However, Meghan had yet to give up her career as an actress at the time and had just finished working on what would become her final season of the legal drama Suits.

Bower said: “Meghan’s unprecedented brazenness took Buckingham Palace by surprise – and electrified the British media.
“Like a thunderclap, the interview triggered sensational reactions: Meghan had used her relationship with Harry to promote herself.
“The Hollywoodisation of the Royal Family had sealed Meghan’s fate as Harry’s fiancée.”
He claimed Meghan was not pleased with the final cover and she immediately contacted her agent and press representatives to lament their failure to keep the quotes out of the final draft.
The author added: “Within hours, Meghan called Ken Sunshine and Keleigh Thomas Morgan. Hysterically, she described Buckingham Palace’s fury at ‘Wild About Harry’.”
