Prince Phillip was ‘spitting blood’ about Meghan, new book claims

The late Prince Philip was allegedly “spitting blood” after being told Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they wanted out of royal life, a new book claims.

The Duke of Edinburgh went straight to the Queen to express his ‘anger’ over the couple's decision to make an announcement without informing senior royals

A close aide of Prince Philip was allegedly told by the royal that they “we were wrong” about Meghan.

The claims of the late Duke’s reaction have been made in ‘Brothers and Wives: Inside the Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan’ by royal author Christopher Andersen.

In the book, the aide revealed Phillip had no knowledge of Instagram but was “furious, deeply hurt, spitting blood” when he learned of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s joint announcement.

According to the aide, Philip shouted “this shows a complete lack of respect” as he told the Queen of his anger.

The book also claims both Philip and Prince Charles had a warm relationship with Meghan but their view changed.

Andersen wrote the senior royals now viewed Meghan as a twenty-first-century Wallis Simpson, who was an American socialite who married the Duke of Windsor, former King Edward VIII.

Philip then confided in one of his closest aides that “It appears as if, we were wrong about her all along.”

The Duke of Edinburgh was not the only male royal who was angry by Harry and Meghan’s announcement.

As revealed in Andersen’s book, Charles' reaction to the statement was “frightening” his staff allegedly claimed.

The Prince of Wales also allegedly had a phone conversation with Harry and told him to “try and fix this”, the book claims.

Philip sadly passed away on April 9 this year and brought together Harry and the other members of the royal family together for the first time since the Duke of Sussex left royal working life.

It is believed that Charles and Prince William had a talk with Harry following the funeral to try and make peace between the family.

Buckingham Palace has been contacted but has previously stated regarding the book: "We don’t comment on books of this kind as to do so risks giving it some form of authority or credibility."
