Meghan Markle and Prince Harry felt ‘unprotected’ by royal family over ‘leaks’

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were left feeling "unsupported and unprotected" by the Royal Family after discovering leaks to the press were coming from "inside the Palace", it has been claimed.

Omid Scobie, who co-wrote Finding Freedom – a dramatic account of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s departure from the Royal Family – with Carolyn Durand, says leaked stories, which he claims came from inside Buckingham Palace, left the pair feeling extremely vulnerable.

Meghan and Harry dramatically stepped down as senior royals earlier this year.

And now, speaking of the couple's time before this on the The Heirpod podcast, Omid said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were stuck in an "extremely unpleasant situation" and that "it became increasingly clear that Harry and Meghan were never going to get the support they needed".

"To have members of their team or family that they are part of being involved in some of their leaks was an extremely unpleasant situation for them and made them feel even more unsupported and unprotected," he said.

"But you have to remember this is one very big establishment and what lies within are three very different households and agendas, all looking after their own bosses and own agendas. It left them very exposed."

The royal author added that Meghan and Harry struggled with the Royal Family's "no comment policy".

He said Meghan found this approach difficult to adjust to, adding: "You need to lean on your new family for support and it just wasn't there often enough."

It comes after Omid let rip at Prince Andrew – calling his current situation a "horrendous mess".

In a tweet on Saturday he said he would like to see Meghan's critics turn their attentions to Prince Andrew's "horrendous mess" instead.
