Although the advice “came from a good place,” Harry “didn’t quite see it that way,” said a source quoted in the book “Finding Freedom: Harry, Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family “.
“It really hurts [Harry] that someone he was so close to wouldn’t trust his judgment, ”said the source, who has spoken to biographers with permission from Harry and Meghan, told The Telegraph.
Inskip and his wife, Lara Hughes-Young, were then ‘punished’ for speaking out – and excluded from the royal couple’s wedding party at Frogmore House in May 2018, according to the report.
The feud lasted until last year, when they patched things up after Skippy’s stepmother died, according to the book.
Harry’s brother Prince William and his wife Catherine are also said to have expressed similar concerns – long seen as the spark in the ongoing feud that ultimately led to Megxit.
Skippy had been a close friend of Harry’s since their meeting in Eton, and he was one of those accompanying him on the infamous Las Vegas night in 2012 where he was caught playing pool naked with showgirls in a hotel suite.
Skippy’s wedding in Jamaica in 2017 was one of Meghan’s first appearances with the prince.
A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess previously told the Post that the couple had “not been interviewed and had not contributed” to the book.
Buckingham Palace told the Telegraph it would not comment on the contents of the book or on claims made by anonymous sources.
