JEREMY Corbyn and his wife gave Harry and Meghan a book of left-wing poetry at the height of the Megxit wars in solidarity with the departing Royals.
The Sussexes lavished thanks on the hard-left former Labour leader and his wife for their “support” in a bizarre alliance revealed in a new book.

Harry and Meghan announced in January that they wanted to step back from their positions as senior royals and become financially independent.
The outgoing Labour leader – a life long critic of the Monarchy – met the couple at Westminster Abbey for the annual Commonwealth Day service in March – where Prince Harry was snapped in stony silence not speaking to Prince William.
Corbyn’s wife Laura Alvarez slipped them a book of verse by the 17th-century Mexican poet Juana Inés de la Cruz, “a nun whose willingness to attack the hypocrisies of the colonial classes had made her a target for establishment hate.”
And according to the new book “Left Out: The Inside Story of Labour under Corbyn” the Sussexes sent a personal note of “great thanks” to “Jeremy and Laura”.
It read: “Dear Jeremy and Laura. Sending our great thanks for the wonderful work of Mexican literature that you so kindly gave us at the Commonwealth Service; Sor Juna Ines de la Cruz is a fascinating historical figure, and we look forward to learning more about her life and works! Thanks for the support, Harry and Meghan.”
The Commonwealth Day service was one of Harry and Meghan’s last outings as members of the Royal Family.
But it was marred by friction between them and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
According to Finding Freedom, a new book on Megxit, William, Kate, Charles and Camilla were allowed to walk with the Queen – much to Harry’s frustration.
This was changed at the last moment so Meghan and Harry entered around the same time as William and Kate.
The tension between the royals is revealed in a new book about Megxit, Finding Freedom.
The book says: “While Harry and Meghan greeted William and Kate, the Cambridges showed little response. William nodded, ignoring Meghan.”
After January’s shock announcement, Harry and Meghan said they would split their time between the UK and North America, and no longer be known as HRH.
Earlier this month, it was revealed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had moved from Tyler Perry’s £15 home in LA into their new £11m mansion in Santa Barbara with one-year-old son Archie.
