Robert Hardman slammed Harry and Meghan in his new book

Royal author Robert Hardman has slammed ‘easily offended’ and ‘resentful’ Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

After the release of his new book named Charles III: New King, New Court, The Inside Story the royal biographer spoke to GBNews Breakfast about his opinion of the pair.

Host Isabel Webster said: "When you say that the Sussexes are easily offended and you know effectively pretty prickly what do you mean and what have you based that on?"

Hardman responded: "They're repost to any given situation in their books and their TV interviews, you see time and again that they feel resentful.

"They feel that you know something hasn't gone their way and that this is part of some sort of calculated campaign against them."

"Harry writes in his book Spare how no one will return his calls and he can't get through to anyone, and it's just all about me, me, me.

“The whole kind of Royal machine, if you like, is a team effort and I just think it's very sad because Harry and Meghan had such potential.

“And now when we tend to hear from them on a Royal matter, it's just to say how miserable they were being Royal.”

The author also said that Meghan and Harry "won’t return to the Royal working unit" but he hopes that they keep returning to the UK.

He said: "I can't envisage a situation where they're back as part of the Royal working unit, but I can certainly see it becoming a kind of normal thing for them to keep coming back.

“I hope so because, you know, it's a family at the end of the day and they did have so much to give.

"I mean, when you look back on that sunny day in May 2018 and that sense of promise, all they were going to be doing for the Commonwealth.

“That's very much what the King had in mind for the future, that there would be this sort of twin track - you'd have William and Catherine, and you'd also have Harry and Meghan.

“Fundamentally, I think everyone's so sad, I think they’re beyond being angry. Everyone would like to see some sort of rapprochement.”

Hardman's book alleges that the late Queen was "angrier than I had ever seen her" after Meghan and Harry used her private nickname for their daughter Lilibet.

In the interview Hardman cleared up that the Queen was "very upset" that the pair suggested that they had "asked permission" not that they had used the name.
