They added: “It really hurt him that someone he was so close to didn’t trust his judgment. ”
Harry and Meghan met in July 2016 on a blind date in London’s Soho.
Their romance quickly took off and after just two dates the couple went on vacation together to Botswana.
Meghan and Harry were first pictured together at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto and then in November of the same year they announced their engagement.
They were married the following May at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.
However, according to Mr Scobie and Ms Durand, Harry’s relationship with a number of friends and family was strained by their concern over the speed of his romance with Meghan.

“Take all the time you need to get to know this girl.”
However, according to another source after that, “Harry was angry”.
They added, “Angry that his brother asks such a thing.
“Some felt it was an overreaction.
“But then that sums them up as people – William, the calm and rational, and Harry, who can’t help but take things too personally.”
According to Mr. Scobie and Mrs. Durand, Harry was particularly offended by William using the words “that girl”.
They wrote: “In those last two words, ‘that girl,’ Harry heard the tone of snobbery that was anathema in his approach to the world.
“During his 10-year career in the army, outside of the royal bubble, he had learned not to make harsh judgments on people based on their accent, their education, their ethnicity, their class or profession.
“Also, to take Meghan out of the equation, Harry was tired of the momentum that had developed between him and his older brother.
“There had come a time when Harry didn’t feel like he had to take care of him anymore.
“There was a thin line between benevolence and condescension.”
Harry and Meghan currently live in Los Angeles after stepping down as senior royals earlier this year.
