Prince Harry was warned by his three times married uncle, Earl Spencer, to reconsider his marriage to Meghan, an author has claimed.
The revelations come in the book 'Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the War between the Windsors', which has seen author Tom Bower speaking to 80 people who know Harry and Meghan personally, to unpick the truth behind the couple.
Claims made by the author range from how Meghan failed to get on with Harry's friends to the changes the palace forced the writers of Suits to make after the couple's relationship became public knowledge.

One story from Bower's book suggests that Diana, Princess of Wales's brother, Earl Spencer, was asked to speak to his nephew about his closeness with Meghan.
The author claims that not only did Earl Spencer and Diana's two sisters, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Baroness Jane Fellowes, fail to see the similarities between Meghan and Harry's late mother – as the prince reportedly hoped – but they thought that she would struggle to fit in with the Royal Family.

Bower writes: "Harry assumed that Diana’s family and friends would see a similarity between Diana and his fiancée.
"Both, he said, shared the same problems.
"He was disappointed.
"No one agreed that his vulnerable mother had anything in common with his girlfriend. More discomforting for him, they thought Meghan would not fit in with the Royal Family."
The author continued: "Their unease was voiced by Spencer, Diana’s brother.
"At William’s request, Spencer weighed in.
"Three times married, Spencer cautioned his nephew to reconsider his haste towards marriage.
"His advice provoked a bitter reaction. ‘This was going to be really hard,’ Harry would later reflect on establishing Meghan’s place in the family.
"One of his recurring concerns was insufficient money if they married.
"Although Harry annually received about £1.5 million from Charles, Meghan had been advised to continue acting to supplement their income."
However, Bower claims that it wasn't just Earl Spencer who openly expressed his concern over Harry and Meghan's budding relationship, the Mirror reports.
He wrote that Meghan's former talent agent, Gina Nelthorpe-Cowne, told the actress that she "wouldn't be able to make any more movies" with her priority set to become royal life instead.
But Meghan wasn't impressed, claims Bower, writing: "Gina, save it,’ Meghan snapped. Nelthorpe-Cowne was taken aback by the steel in Meghan’s voice.
"Holding up her hand, Meghan continued: ‘Stop. Be quiet. I don’t want to hear any negativity. This is a happy time for us.’ Stopped in her tracks, Nelthorpe-Cowne looked at the hard fury in Meghan’s eyes."
