Meghan Markle sent secret love messages to Prince Harry on Instagram before their relationship was revealed, book claims
MEGHAN Markle sent secret love messages to Prince Harry via Instagram before their relationship was made public, the authors of new book 'Finding Freedom' have claimed.
They say she made her feelings known in subtle ways while the pair were apart – like posting a photo of her dog Guy wearing a Union Jack jumper.
Harry appeared to get the message as he reportedly turned up at her door just hours after she shared the picture.
Meghan also hinted at their blossoming relationship by posting a photo of Love Hearts sweets saying "Kiss Me" with the caption "Lovehearts in #London" – a possible message to Harry.
And in another post in October 2016 she shared a pic of herself with a blue bracelet identical to the one Harry's worn on several occasions.
Meghan also showed her affection while the prince was travelling by wearing a gold chain necklace with the initials 'M' and 'H' – only to be later scolded by the palace.
She received a call from from a senior Kensington Palace aide to advise that "wearing such a necklace only served to encourage the photographers to keep pursuing such images, and new headlines".
The book claims "she said little during the call" but "after hanging up felt frustrated and emotional".
"The surreal experience of of having someone from her boyfriend's office tell her what kind of jewellery to wear or not to smile at a photographer was too much", it adds.
ROYAL LAUNDRY AIRED
Finding Freedom, which is due for release in August, sheds new light on the intimate details of Meghan and Harry's relationship.
It tells how Meghan was driven to Harry's cottage in Kensington Palace for a cosy night in after he told a pal she was "ticking every box fast".
She had joked after a recent two-year relationship ended before her first visit to London, she'd be happy with "a nice English gentleman to flirt with".
Harry was left "in a trance" after meeting Meghan for their first date, a pal claimed in the book.
The pair were "in their own little world" for three hours over beers and martinis at London's Dean Street Townhouse, after being introduced by a friend.
Bombshell book claims include:
- Harry told Meg 'I love you' first three months into their whirlwind romance
- Anti-paparazzi Meghan CONSPIRED with snappers to set up shots herself
- Harry gave Charles 20 minutes' notice before crushing his Middle East tour
- Harry and Meg secretly got engaged two months before they told the world
- Prince Harry was 'in a trance' after he met Meg on their first date
The book also details their fallout with the Royal Family and their decision to step down as working royals.
Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, who have co-written the tell-all biography, say Meghan "emboldened" Prince Harry to quit the Royal Family – but he already wanted to leave.
They claim Harry was "very much on board with distancing himself from the public eye" but needed someone strong enough to stand by his side.
Scobie told People: "Meghan emboldened Harry.
"He needed someone by his side that is strong enough to weather the same storms, but also someone who wasn't afraid of breaking the rules and going against the norm.
"What we see now is a couple doing things their own way."
Durand added: "What has struck me is Harry's commitment to put his royal birthright aside and use his voice to make a difference.
"In Meghan he found a partner in that."
Their comments follow claims that Harry and Meghan face permanent exile from the Royal Family after extracts from the book revealed a bitter rift with The Firm.
The book, which was serialised over the weekend in the Sunday Times, has laid bare family disputes with the monarchy and is believed to have ruined any hopes of returning to royal duties when Megxit is reviewed.
A royal household source said: "The door will always be open to them as much-loved members of the family.
"But it's hard to see how they can now salvage the new role they wanted as 'hybrid' royals, running commercial careers alongside royal duties from the US."
The pair deny giving interviews to the authors, or in any way contributing.
But the book is littered with intimate anecdotes that only the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, or their very closest friends, would know.
It makes a string of complaints about the Royal Family and has re-opened wounds between the LA-based couple and The Firm.
