Royal biographer Robert Lacey said the Duke of Cambridge had his suspicions about Meghan from the early days of her romance with his younger brother. The claim came from a source close to the future King, according to Mr Lacey.

Speaking in ITV documentary Harry and William: What Went Wrong?, the royal historian said: “Someone close to William told me William felt from an early stage that Meghan had an agenda.”

In the updated edition of his Battle of Brothers book, Mr Lacey makes fresh revelations about the rift between William and Harry.

The royal author claims William fumed at Meghan’s “merciless” treatment of staff and called her “that bloody woman” amid bullying allegations from royal staff, which she denies.

It has previously been claimed that the brothers’ rift stretches back to the beginning of Harry’s relationship with Meghan when William urged his younger sibling not to rush things.

Speaking in the ITV documentary, which aired last night, royal biographer Penny Junor claimed former actress Meghan was “upsetting people from early on”.

Ms Junor said: “I was hearing very bad stories from early on that Meghan was upsetting people.

“She was not as charming as she seemed.”
