A former pal of the Duchess has come forward with claims that Meghan's friends are choosing to leave her

Meghan’s circle of friends is dwindling, as many are choosing to walking away from the Duchess, her former pal has claimed.

This comes following the Sussexes' fallout with the Beckhams last month, after Meghan and Harry accused the two of leaking stories to the press.

British TV Presenter Lizzie Cundy now claims that the Duchess could have “manipulated” Harry into thinking the Beckhams were behind the stories.

According to Cundy, Meghan claimed that Victoria Beckham was the source of the leak.

This led to David being left “absolutely furious” by the accusations, a different source claimed.

Cundy believes that Meghan’s allegations may have caused a rift, leading to the Beckhams, and other friends, choosing to distance themselves from the couple.

She said: “I think Victoria and David have slowly tiptoed away like the other friends.

"Many friends who went to the wedding have tiptoed away from Meghan."

The TV presenter doubted that the press leak would have come from the Beckhams.

“These are real big family people, there’s no way Victoria would’ve leaked stories,” she added.

Cundy went on to describe how star struck Meghan was when she first met Posh Spice back in 2013, a stark contrast to the frosty relationship the two former friends have now.

Cundy and Meghan attended the Global Gift Gala in New York when they spotted the former popstar in attendance.

“I’ve never seen anyone squeal quite like it,” she told the New York Post.

“Meghan was so thrilled with excitement to see Victoria Beckham. She went ‘Oh my God, that’s Victoria Beckham!'”

“It was crazy. I thought ‘You’ve got to calm down and be cool.’

“I was the one who knew Meghan before Harry, and I saw the reaction to Victoria. She was a proper big fan, she let that show”.

Meghan went on to make friends with the Beckhams when she started dating Prince Harry back in 2016.

Cundy on the other hand, claims she was “ghosted” by Meghan as soon as her relationship with Harry began, she told the Mirror back in 2021.
