Meghan Markle’s relationship with courtiers was discussed as part of a new documentary examining Prince William and Prince Harry’s relationship with the press. The Duchess of Sussex allegedly locked horns with royal aides over a divergence of views over the role she would have once she married into the family. 

Presenter Amol Rajan spoke to royal experts on the BBC documentary The Princes and the Press.

Mr Rajan said: “Despite the leaks during this period, none of these stories actually appear in the media.”

Author Anna Pasternak claimed: “Meghan had this agenda that once she was a member of the Royal Family, she was going to have this platform and she was going to have her voice.

“The one thing that cannot have as a member of the Royal Family is your voice.

Camilla Tominey added: “The mantra of the Palace is very much what should we do next? What did we do before?

“It’s not, let’s tear everything up, and I think Harry and Megan very much wanted to change things and were saying things like, well, why do we have to do this?

“Why can’t we do it differently? We don’t want to do it.”

He also said that Prince Harry’s former girlfriend Chelsy Davy became a particular target.

Mr Burrows recalled the shocking tactics used against Harry’s ex. 

He said: “There was a lot of voicemail hacking going on.

“There was a lot of surveillance work on her phones, on her comms, Chelsy would brag to her friends when she was going to see him.”

He even claimed that the “ruthless” culture led to them trying to obtain medical records, saying: “Yeah, medical records… had she had an abortion, sexual diseases, ex-boyfriends, vet ’em, check them…”
