The book claims the Duke of Sussex felt Charles put the British public’s opinions of him above anything else. The unofficial biography is due to be published in August, and is expected to shed light on the couple’s frustrations with the palace and press.

The biography, written by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, claimed Harry had “grown frustrated” that he and Meghan “often took a back seat to other family members,” including his father and brother.

Palace sources fear the book could create a bad rift between Harry, Meghan, and the Royals due to it’s account of some of their grievances.

However, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have distanced themselves from the book, saying they were not interviewed for the biography and did not make any contributions to it.

Nonetheless, tensions appeared high between the Sussexes and the rest of the Royal Family by the time Harry and Meghan announced their surprise departure in January.

The move was not discussed with the palace beforehand, making it a shock to both the public and other royals.

Now, an extract of the biography, serialised this weekend by The Times has said just why these tensions and frustrations grew in the lead up to the royal split.

The book said: “Increasingly Harry had grown frustrated that he and Meghan often took a back seat to other family members.

“While they both respected the hierarchy of the institution, it was difficult when they wanted to focus on a project and were told that a more senior ranking family member, be it Prince William or Prince Charles, had an initiative or tour being announced at the same time — so they would just have to wait.”

JUST IN: Prince Harry would ‘be crazy not to’ come back to England

Biographers say Charles was always going to include Harry and Meghan in the future of the Royal Family, even if it was cut down in size.

The Prince of Wales is even said to have told the couple so.

However, the text explains that feelings were hurt when Harry and Meghan didn’t tell the Firm when they were developing their own Sussex Royal website.

The extract read: “Even sources close to Harry and Meghan had to admit that the way the couple were forced to approach the situation created a lot of ill will in the household and especially in the family”.

However, despite the alleged bad feeling, some experts are certain Harry will return to the UK one day.

However, this could be without Meghan.

Former Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter said in an interview with the Telegraph that Harry’s move overseas “doesn’t make sense” to the British public.

He said: “British people are clearly just saddened that this star, in their eyes – and I mean Harry, not Meghan – has left the country and gone his own way.

“It doesn’t make sense to a lot of them.”

When asked if he thinks Harry will come back to the UK to live, he suggested the LA life is not for a prince.

He said: “He’d be crazy not to.

“Los Angeles is not a place for people who don’t have a part in the professional firmament.

“Meghan was on a middling TV show that a lot of people didn’t see, and as for Harry: being a soldier and liking football are just not saleable talents out there.”

The former editor went on to suggest Harry and Meghan’s messages on global warning is far from aiding their success.

He added: “You can get it right if you stay on message in LA.

“But I think it’s very hard to start telling people about the fate of the planet when you’re flying in private planes, living in a 14-bedroom Beverly Hills mansion and living off the state.

“I really don’t think you can lecture people from that position.”
