Meghan Markle’s former pal claims the Duchess has forced Prince Harry to drop some of his friends since they got married.
Former model Lizzie Cundy, who struck up a friendship with Meghan in 2013, reportedly said one of Harry’s childhood friends had been booted out of his life by Meghan.
She also claims Meghan has pushed out her some of Harry’s other friends who were apparently ‘bad influences’ on him.
The TV personality claims the Duchess of Sussex now ‘rules the roost’ at their home in Frogmore Cottage , in Windsor.
Lizzie told talkRADIO: “One thing I have heard is, because I’m friend with a lot of Harry’s friends – one is a very close friend – is that she has pushed them all out.
She’s ruling the roost. This friend, I won’t name him, he had Harry on his shoulders in Las Vegas when he got into that trouble.
“He was a really good, solid friend – covered for him, everything – he has been elbowed right out.”
There have been rumours in the past that Meghan was trying to distance Harry from friends who had an ‘unsettling influence’ on him.
Tatler magazine reported that Meghan engaged in a feud with Tom Inskip, one of Harry’s friends from his time at Eton College.
The publication claimed that ‘Skippy’ had advised Harry not to marry the former Suits actress, apparently resulting in him being outcast when the pair eventually wed.
A source reportedly told The Sun : “But the real reason Tom was made no longer welcome by Meghan is that she had learned he had dared to question Harry over whether he really felt he was doing the right thing in marrying her.
“All the poor guy did, during a heart to heart with the prince, was to venture that Harry might be infatuated, more in lust than love, and maybe he might think about cooling things down before rushing into a proposal.”
However, tensions between the pair appear to have eased, with ‘Skippy’ being one of the first people to ring Harry after the birth of the couple’s baby.
