PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle were "unsupported and unprotected" by the Royal Family – and leaks about them came from INSIDE Buckingham Palace, an expert has claimed.
Appearing on The Heirpod podcast, royal correspondent Omid Scobie – who co-authored the bombshell biography Finding Freedom – said the couple struggled with the Royal Family's "no comment policy".
During the interview, Omid claimed Meghan and Harry struggled in the spotlight and said it became increasingly clear "they were never going to get the support they needed" from the Royal Family.
What's more, the royal correspondent said Meghan found this approach particularly difficult as she adjusted to life as a Royal .
He said: "You need to lean on your new family for support and it just wasn't there often enough."
The author also claimed that leaked stories about the couple came from inside Buckingham Palace – which left them feeling even more vulnerable.
Labelling it a "HR crisis", Omid continued: "To have members of their team or family that they are part of being involved in some of their leaks was an extremely unpleasant situation for them and made them feel even more unsupported and unprotected.
"But you have to remember this is one very big establishment and what lies within are three very different households and agendas, all looking after their own bosses and own agendas. It left them very exposed."
Earlier this month, Omid said Harry and Meghan were "told not to defend themselves" after Palace insiders branded her "Duchess Difficult".
A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace told Fabulous Digital: "We have never commented on books written in the past and won’t be commenting on this book or the ongoing promotional work surrounding it."
