Penned by royal biographer Andrew Morton, the 36-year-old is portrayed as a very different person than the kind-natured future princess we see today in Meghan: 'A Hollywood Princess'.

He says: "I know how proud he will be to take her arm and walk her down that aisle".

The details about Meghan's life have been garnered from interviews with numerous sources including a former friend who describes her as a "social climber". "It could be hard for her".

Now he turns his pen to Meghan Markle.

"It was such a moving wedding", a bridesmaid said, according to the excerpt.


Of her university days in Northwestern, Illinois, Morton writes about her physical appearance, "Now that she wasn't under the watchful gaze of her mother, she started wearing heavier make-up and experimented with highlighting her hair". That meant relocating to Toronto, while Engelson remained in L.A. They Wednesday in Jamaica and tried to maintain a long-distance relationship but split two years later. In addition, there were also "numerous parties and beach wheelbarrow races".

By 2011, Markle had landed her "Suits" role and was engaged to Engelson. "A wealthy entrepreneur friend claimed the marriage ended so abruptly that Meghan sent her wedding and engagement rings back to Trevor by registered post".

"It was their economic devaluation and our Secretary of the Treasury at the time, Paul O'Neill, was there, so I'm 20 years old, in Buenos Aires, in a motorcade, doing that whole thing", she previously told Marie Claire US.

The couple was determined to make it work, even if it meant seeing each other every two or three weeks, according to the book.

"She was immediately sensitive to him, aware that this was a man who, beneath the banter and the surface chatter, was looking for a safe harbor", reads a line out of the book.


He delves into the breakdown of her first marriage with producer Trevor Engleson. The wedding would follow a carriage procession through Windsor town and a reception in St George's Hall, it was announced past year. The couple was officially divorced a year later.

"The queen trusts her grandsons".

While the royal family assures the public that it will be covering the wedding's cost, some in Britain are concerned about taxpayers being on the hook, which they will be for security, the bulk of the cost, the Daily Beast reported.

Harry and Davy dated off-and-on from 2004 until 2011, first linking up with Harry spent time in Cape Town, South Africa.
