Tom Bower, author of Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors, has spoken to GB News about Meghan Markle, claiming that the Duchess never intended to remain in the Royal Family for long term.

Mr Bower suggested to GB News that the 41-year-old used her status as royal to build her image in the US.

He told GB News: “That’s exactly why she left because she never really wanted to stay.

“She wanted the label, she wanted the title, she wanted the money.

“She didn’t get so much money – but she did get the status.

“Now she’s set on building herself up in America”.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they were stepping down as working royals in January 2020.

The couple claimed, at the time, they wanted to be “financially independent”.

The pair opened up about their struggles within the monarchy during their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021.

In the interview, Meghan claimed she had had no support when from the Palace and admitted having suicidal thoughts during her time in The Firm.

In their bid to become “financially independent”, the couple signed a multi-million dollar with Netflix after their royal exit.

A docu-series about their life is set to be released on the streaming service.

Prince Harry is also set to release a memoir about his life, which has reportedly made the Royal Family “hugely nervous”.

PageSix has reported that, despite its originally scheduled release in November, the memoir has now been pushed back to 2023.

Meghan and Harry’s docu-series was originally set to be released in December, one month after the release of the fifth season of The Crown, but the streaming service is reporting delaying the release of the Sussexes series after The Crown copped backlash.

The official release dates of Meghan and Harry’s docu-series and Prince Harry’s memoir remain unknown.
