One of Prince Harry’s oldest and closest friends shared his doubts about Meghan Markle when she arrived on the scene, a new book claims.
According to royal biography Finding Freedom, Tom “Skippy” Inskip was “punished” for giving his school friend advice.
Skippy, who was inseparable with Harry since they met at Eton, advised Harry and Meghan to live together “before doing anything more serious”, reports The Sun.
A source close to the couple told authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand that although his advice “came from a good place,” Prince Harry “didn’t totally see it that way”.
Prince William is also said to have told Harry to not “rush” the relationship.
After sharing their reservations about Meghan, Skippy and wife Lara were said to be “punished” by not being invited to Harry and Meghan’s wedding party at Frogmore House.
The couple’s new A-list friends Oprah Winfrey and George Clooney secured invites.
