Meghan Markle, 38, and Prince Harry, 35, resigned from the royal family in March and have since moved to Los Angeles with their son, Archie Harrison. But a new unofficial biography of the named couple, Finding Freedom, contains detailed accounts of how the couple felt during their time with the royal family. Biographer Angela Levin has revealed that the Duchess of Sussex does not feel ‘number one’ due to the structure of the monarchy.
Ms Levin said: ‘I don’t think it’s a surprise to Harry but what I think most upset is that Meghan felt she wasn’t number one.
“Diana taught them from the start their sense of duty and their hard work for the monarchy and how it works.

“They knew it from start to finish. ”
Her comments come as the Duchess of Sussex’s father has reportedly said he was disillusioned with the woman she has become.
Thomas Markle also responded to a new book on Meghan and Harry criticizing the timing of its publication, saying it appears to be a collection of complaints at a time when thousands of people are dying from Covid-19.
Speaking to The Sun, Mr Markle said: “I love my daughter but I really don’t appreciate what has become of her right now. “
Mr Markle responded by saying his daughter was not above media collusion in the same way and that she had arranged paparazzi photos while acting on the Suits TV series before meeting Harry.
“Apparently Meghan made deals with the paparazzi. She planned it, ”Mr Markle told The Sun, who stressed that he had not paid him for the brief interview.
Mr. Markle did not attend his daughter’s wedding. The book says Meghan still desperately wanted him there, despite the publicity about his involvement with the paparazzi, but did not respond to his texts and voicemails in the days leading up to the event.
Mr Markle suffered a heart attack around the same time, which he said would have kept him from flying to London in any event.
