A new bombshell royal book claims Meghan Markle rebuffed advice from Camilla, Queen Consort in regards to marrying into the Royal Family.
In a series of claims about the Duchess' bond with Camilla, royal author Angela Levin claims the relationship "fell flat" despite Meghan being given a "warm" welcome into the family.
In Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall: A Royal Survivor, Ms Levin quotes a royal insider as saying "she [Camilla] doesn’t want to see anyone struggling, and she is fond of Meghan" while discussing Camilla's early attempts to reach out to the Duchess.
Camilla reportedly told Meghan that the Duchess seemed "bored" about her life and the welcoming approaches afforded to her by the Royal Family.

Levin states that Meghan's position in The Firm was initially appreciated, and she was seen as a "hard worker" by Camilla, while King Charles III "enjoyed" the Duchess' company.
Since then, the Duchess and her husband, Harry, have taken a step back from frontline royal duties as a result of their disillusionment at the realities of royal life.
Since stepping down as senior royals, Meghan and Harry have agreed to interviews, including their sensational chat with Oprah in which they accused the royal family of racism and the institution of not helping Meghan when she had suicidal thoughts.

The Duchess of Cambridge was publicly singled out by Meghan for allegedly making her cry in the run-up to the wedding.
During a recent interview with The Cut, Meghan said she was told there was the same jubilation in South Africa when she married Harry as there was when Nelson Mandela was freed from prison.
Mandela, revered worldwide as a man of peace and forgiveness, was freed from prison in 1990 after 27 years and went on to become president of his beloved South Africa.
Meghan said the comparison between Mandela and her marrying into the royal family was made at the 2019 premiere of The Lion King in London where she and Harry met Beyonce and Jay-Z.
“I just had Archie. It was such a cruel chapter. I was scared to go out,” she said, adding that a cast member from South Africa pulled her aside.
“He looked at me, and he’s just like light. He said, ‘I just need you to know: When you married into this family, we rejoiced in the streets the same we did when Mandela was freed from prison’.”
