Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s deals with companies such as Disney were in the works before they departed frontline royal duties, the Duchess’ half-sister has claimed.

The couple have struck deals with a range of companies such as Netflix and Disney following their exit from royal duties.

Samantha Markle told GB News: “We all know they were paying pricey PR to tell their story all along.

“We heard that these so-called film deals were in the works even before Megxit but her PR made it look as though the decision to leave was Harry and Meg’s decision.

“All this poppycock about being thrown out and being screamed at and being bullied, I don’t believe it for one minute.

“If Prince William and King Charles were upset, of course they were! They were in royal duties and making Hollywood deals, which I understand was prohibited.”

Dan Wootton agreed with the claim, saying he “heard” the same statement, and the couple did not follow royal “protocol”.

Meghan and Harry have made a range of claims in a Netflix docuseries about their time in the Royal Family, with the latter hitting out at the treatment his brother was afforded in comparison to him.

The duke, in his Netflix documentary, said he and William promised never to trade or leak stories or brief against one another after witnessing the fallout of such actions in their father’s office.

Yet in episode four of the Harry & Meghan docuseries, Harry accused his brother’s team at Kensington Palace of doing just that.

“William and I both saw what happened in our dad’s office and we made an agreement that we would never let that happen to our office,” he said.

He added: “I would far rather get destroyed in the press than play along with this game or this business of trading, and to see my brother’s office copy the very same thing that we promised the two of us would never ever do, that was heart-breaking.”

The duke’s allegations against his brother in the final three episodes included damaging claims he was left terrified after William screamed and shouted at him in front of the Queen during the Sandringham summit in 2020, and that the Palace “lied to protect” William over bullying accusations by issuing a joint statement without Harry’s permission.

The claims, and Harry’s decision to make them public, are being seen as evidence the fraught relationship between William – now heir to the throne – and Harry – once the spare to the heir but now no longer a working royal – will never be resolved.
