They continued: “She was very sensitive to Meghan and provided her with support, advising her to ride out the storm and that it would all pass — but ultimately Meghan didn’t listen.”

ED! contacted the Sussexes’ reps for comment.

Instead, the perception is Meghan and Prince Harry have hit back at unflattering portrayals, rather than weather them.

An anonymous palace aide also told the Mail that Camilla made effort to be a ‘mentor’ before.

Previously, the Duchess of Cornwall also spent time with Kate Middleton for similar purposes, before she married Prince William.

Earlier this year, Meghan reportedly ‘upset’ Camilla following a theatre visit.

She was very sensitive to Meghan and provided her with support, advising her to ride out the storm.

Meghan allegedly released images depicting her visit on the day Camilla was due to make a speech about domestic violence.

The insider added that “everyone was in agreement that Camilla’s speech should take p­recedence.

The source continued: “Unfortunately some people had other ideas.”

Meghan and Harry’s TV plans
