Meghan’s explosive claims ‘just an excuse to leave Royal Family’ says expert

Meghan Markle never intended to stay in the Royal Family, an expert has claimed.

Phil Dampier said that she and Prince Harry's allegations of racism and neglect by the Firm are "just an excuse to justify what they’ve done".

The author of Royally Suited: Harry and Meghan in Their Own Words told The Sun: "I don’t buy this that they didn’t help to protect Meghan and I don’t buy she was driven out by racism.

"I don’t think her heart was really in it.

"When you look at some of the projects she’s got involved with and they were seemingly planning a couple of years ago.

"I personally think she never intended to stay in the royal family."

He went on: "I’m afraid that blaming members of the royal family and courtiers and how they were treated is just an excuse for what they have done and to justify what they’ve done."

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, 39, stepped down as senior royals last March and now live a lucrative life in the US.

Meghan accused the Palace of "racism" and spreading "falsehoods" in their Oprah Winfrey tell-all which aired in March.

The couple dropped dramatic bombshell accusations against their family on the prime-time CBS show which was streamed online.

Meghan claimed that Archie wasn't allowed to be a prince and that there were "concerns and conversations" about "how dark" his skin would be after he was born.

But the 39-year-old declined to say who had started those conversations, saying it would be "damaging" for them.

Prince Harry said he would "never share" the full details of the discussion but that he was asked at the start of his relationship with Meghan, how dark the skin of their children might be.

But Oprah Winfrey revealed it was not the Queen or the Duke of Edinburgh who made the comment about Archie's skin.

Meghan also said that when she was suffering from suicidal thoughts, the Palace didn't allow her to get help.

The couple claimed that Kate Middleton made Meghan cry in a row over a flower girl dress.

Prince Harry also spoke out about how he felt "trapped" in the family and that he and his father weren't speaking.

The pair cited privacy reasons for leaving the Firm.
