MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry interpreted the Queen’s photograph with her heirs Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince George as “unspoken code” about their future in the Royal Family, according to an updated book.
New chapters of the book ‘Meghan: A Hollywood Princess’ by Andrew Morton are set to be released on October 14. There are several fresh claims about what really went on behind Palace walls, including the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’ reaction to a photograph the Queen released at the start of 2020. Her Majesty shared a lovely photo of her, Charles, William and George in Buckingham Palace’s Throne Room, laying out the future of the British monarchy in an adorable family photo.

They said in their statement they had spent “many months” reflecting over the decision and said they wished to “carve out a progressive new role”.
The couple have since spoken out about their life in the Royal Family and their decision to quit, in two high-profile interviews earlier this year.
Harry told James Cordon on The Late Late Show: “It was never walking away.
